"In the direct proximity of the industrial complex on the Kampfmeyer site dating from the 1980s (architects: Ganz and Rolfes) and next to the hotel extension on the land of the old dairy (architect: Borchardt) are the Spree meander towers (architects: Kuhn-Bergander-Bley). Seen from the street Alt-Moabit, the office building, which is shaped like a gigantic U, is more or less in the rear courtyard. The wings of the building open out to the Spree, although a converted industrial building dating from the 19th century blocks the view from the inner courtyard to the river."

This image was taken in 2001 by John P. Schooley, FAIA, during the 'Berlin: Building the New City' tour. This tour was planned for architects and planners so that they could see first-hand how this once-divided city emerged from the Cold War to become a leading commercial and cultural center in Europe.
