The station name in the underground station "Mierendorffplatz".

As the Senate Department of Culture Administration announced on 23 November 2018, the Berlin Monument Authority has included the stations and ten other stations of the 1960s and 1970s on the lines U7, U6 and U9 in its list of monuments. Most of the U-Bahn stations were designed by Rainer Gerhard Rümmler, then head of the department for building design of the Senate Building Administration.
Culture senator Klaus Lederer (Die Linke) said: "With the entry of a selection of post-war railway stations, representative examples of this historical epoch are now on the list of monuments". The designation of stations on the GDR's only underground line, the U5 between Tierpark and Hönow, is currently being prepared by the Berlin Monument Authority.
