The construction of high-rise ‘Edge East Side Berlin’ is called into question.
Amazon has a dream: moving to the planned high-rise ‘Edge East Side Berlin’ at Warschauer Straße. In fact, the company plans to rent out (most of) the 36 floors of the 140-metre-high tower. We can guess what’s going to go on inside: the high-rise managers float about, plotting how they can get away with paying workers in the warehouses and delivery vans even more obscenely low wages.
But all these plans may be thwarted by the council: they’re looking into withdrawing building permits. Why? The recently publicised designs apparently deviate from the agreements between council and the building owner significantly. Karl Marx would be delighted.
