Miscellaneous Shop
“The Alexa Shopping Mall is centrally located in the City East near Alexanderplatz. Therefore it is easy to reach by public transport. Besides, Alexa is one of the largest shopping centres in Berlin and the biggest shopping centre in the City East. Alexa opened in 2007 and with its red concrete façade it is highly visible in between the other, mainly prefab panel housing estates around Alexanderplatz. By the use of red concrete, golden porches and basically no windows the architects' aim was to create an art déco building. ”
