On December 2, 2010, the Bavarian House construction started BERLIN with the extensive construction and revitalization measures for BIKINI. The construction progress at the building ensemble is clearly visible. The four stairways and elevators and further additions in the rear area of the home of bikini are already worn off. The opening of the total area is planned for the end of 2012. The under monument protection related complex, consisting of large high-rise, the cinema Zoo Palace, Bikinihaus, the small building and a parking garage, was purchased in 2002 by the Bavarian House construction and integrated into the portfolio of about 200 real estate. Solutions were developed in close coordination with the Office, which are up to date, while preserving the authenticity of the area. The construction progress at the building ensemble is clearly visible: end of 2010 the blue ball (Germany’s first 3D cinema and former television Studio by Sabine Christiansen) was dismantled. The blue ball went as a donation to the Babelsberg film Park and there will be new in the summer of 2011 as interactive cinema opened.
The attachments between the blue ball and the small building were demolished already. The small high-rise is according to the original condition free- and its massive concrete columns are visible again. The demolition work on the parking garage have 2011 also started in the first quarter. In the coming weeks, the new theaters are left denkmalge-next to the protected Zoo Palace demolished. The think time fair conversion begins parallel inside the Zoo Palace. Here, in particular the building and projection will be renewed and the not bauzeitliche material removed. The four stairways and elevators and other additions in the ruckwarti-area of the home of bikini are already worn off. In the Bikinihaus, the monument just inside gutting started mid March 2011. Offices on the upper floors and innovative shop concepts on the ground floor, as well as in the first and second floors are created here.
