Sony Center at night,  Potsdamer Platz.<br />
<br />
The Sony Center is a Sony-sponsored building complex located at the Potsdamer Platz in Berlin, Germany. It opened in 2000.<br />
<br />
The site was originally a bustling city center in the early 20th Century. After World War II, the area suffered a sharp decline and was eventually left abandoned. As part of a redevelopment effort for the area, the center was constructed. The centre was designed by Helmut Jahn and construction was completed in 2000 at a total cost of US$800M (approximately EU€860M). In February 2008 Sony sold Berlin's Sony Center for less than EU€600M (approximately US$880M) to a group of German and US investment funds, including investment bank Morgan Stanley, Corpus Sireo and an affiliate of The John Buck Company [1].
