The nine-storey building faces the Spree along its entire length as a geometric solitaire. The location on the river, the East Side Park, the East Side Gallery and the neighbouring residential tower significantly determine the architecture.

Under the name "Pier 61 I 64", a striking building with a mixed use of hotel, gastronomy and rental flats is being built in a prominent location. Construction work began in early 2018 and the project is scheduled for completion in 2021.

At this exposed and special location, plasticity and liveliness are to be created through a visual haptic of the façade. Loggias will be arranged like boxes in different widths and heights - with projections and recesses - creating additional free space for the residents. Floor-to-ceiling windows facing south and glass balustrades ensure transparency and allow unobstructed views of the Spree - from the Jannowitzbrücke to the Oberbaumbrücke, a landmark for young cosmopolitan Berlin.

On a gross floor area of approx. 22,000 m², a hotel with 167 rooms will be built in the western half of the building and between 60 and 70 rental flats in the eastern half. These have different sizes from one to five rooms and are partly designed as maisonettes. The special feature of the large flats is their "pierced" arrangement through the building structure from the north in Mühlenstraße to the south and thus to the Spree. The design of the building is conceived from the inside out, thus enabling multi-layered living situations.
