The Fall Of The Berlin Mall Of Berlin

Jeepers. That didn’t take very long.

Mall of Berlin

This is not just any mall, mind you, but the hubristically named Mall of Berlin—the largest Germany’s capital has ever seen, including not only shops but (as yet unfinished) apartments and a hotel. And guess what? While it’s only been open since the autumn, the whole project is already bombing…

It’s not that Berlin’s government and developers don’t have the guts to take on major projects to transform the city. They just really suck at them.

  1. Wow, well, that is disappointing. I do wish I could come back and see Berlin without the Wall. I served there on Teufelsberg from 1976 to 1979; I admit, I’d like to walk those tattered, abandoned halls once more as well.
