In ihrem Koalitionsvertrag hat sich Rot-Rot-Grün auf einen Hochhausentwicklungsplan für Berlin verständigt, „mit dem die stadträumliche Verteilung reguliert und die Zahl von Hochhausstandorten beschränkt werden soll“. Unter Architekten und Stadtplanern sind solche Regelwerke umstritten. Warum, erklärt der Architekt Christoph Langhof im Gespräch mit der Berliner Morgenpost. Langhof (68) hat den Upper-West-Tower am Breitscheidplatz in der City West entworfen – und zwei Jahrzehnte lang für seine Realisierung gekämpft. Das 118-Meter-Hochhaus mit der weißen Aluminium-Fassade ist fast fertig und soll im Frühjahr 2017 bezogen werden.
