Komplex Holzmarktstraße are GDR-era modernist residential towers that sit just south-east of Alexanderplatz in Berlin. They are part of a neighborhood called "Karl-Marx-Allee,II" which includes a pedestrian promenade that is capped by the famous Kino International, where premiers of Soviet Cinema were held until the fall of the wall in 1989. The 58m-tall, 18-story towers were completed in 1971 and have since been cleaned and re-surfaced. They are the earliest example of the WHH-GT 18 "Plattenbau" (large panel construction) building type. Today, their bright primary colors and proximity to the TV Tower viewing platform have made them iconic.

I too dream of a station like S-Bahnhof Friedrichstrasse, where the U crosses underneath and S crosses above and elevated. I never got it right in my build and it has always bugged me. Curved stations pose lots of problems in C:S, and having stuff near water also creates problems, so making that station is a real challenge.

Nice to hear it @Utopia. Ever considered making some stuff? I learned everything from scratch and all of the tools are free (blender). I'd love for more people to be making Berlin assets :medkit:

Ich bin sehr beeindruckt von deiner Map. Es wäre mir eine persönliche Ehre, wenn du eines Tages die Fischerinsel machen kannst. Meine Heimat seit '94 :D

Immer, wenn ich meine Oma besucht habe, bin ich dran vorbeigelaufen. Ich wollte sogar mal dort einziehen, habe dann aber eine andere Wohnung genommen. :)
