Built in 1876 in Italian Renaissance style, the Oberpostdirektion (administrative building of the imperial postal service) was once one of Dresden’s many jewels and, together with neighbouring Telegrafenamt (telegraph office), created the picture of the Postplatz. Today there is not much that remains of this former glory: for 15 years the vacant building has remained in an ever-growing state of disrepair. Now, however, it’s taking on a new perspective—since spring of 2016, the CG Group has been transforming the old Oberpostdirektion into the “Residence at Postplatz”. In the best of inner-city locations, a multifaceted residential complex, featuring high-quality rental flats suitable for singles as well as families, will appear here by 2018. A café will be built on the ground floor amongst retail and office space. Designed by renowned architect Ingo Pott of Pott Architects Ltd., the old building will remain largely intact while two new buildings on either side will make it whole. Ingo Pott has many years of experience in the conversion of historic buildings: during his studies, he worked as a member of Sir Norman Foster’s team on converting the Reichstag building in Berlin, in which he designed the construction of the building’s glass dome.
