It is one of the 19 buildings designed for the new Potsdamer Platz district by the international team of architects, headed by Renzo Piano. A tower itself, it stands tall between Renzo Piano's residential building tower and Helmut Jahn's Deutsche Bahn glass facade high-rises, but with a very different look.
- Its design reminds a neo-Brick Gothic cathedral characteristic to northern European countries.
- A step-like facade of dark peat-fired bricks tapers to a slender peak.
- The broad lower wings' roof are green, they decent and help the tall building blend among the lower heighbors.
- Designed by Arch. Hans Kollhoff and Helga Timmermann
- Constructed between 1995 and 1999
- 25 stories high
