One of five blocks built between 1970 and 1975 in the centre of Halle Neustadt. This is the so called Scheibe A (the others were named B-E). It was used initially as a student residence but has been empty since shortly after reunification in 1990. These photos were taken in 2015.

Halle-Neustadt (popularly known as HaNeu, pronounced Ha-Noi) was a city in the German Democratic Republic. It was established as an independent and autonomous city on May 12, 1967. The population in 1972 was 51,600 and in 1981 was more than 93,000. On May 6, 1990, Halle-Neustadt merged back into Halle again. Read more about here.
