Inaccuracies

As someone doing some research on the matter I stumbled upon some inaccuracies in the article. “Hier entsteht ein Zentrum” should rather be translated with “here a center is being created”.
Also, Haus der Statistik was not a Stasi HQ (only the upper floors were used by the Stasi), but mostly occupied by the central administation of statistics of the GDR ‒ the public authority collecting data for the SED's five-year-plans.
On May 12, they had not yet sold the building to the city but only signed an agreement to do that later on (the actual sales contract was signed on October 13).
