I remember seeing this model a few years ago. Are all of the projects in that model still going to be built?

I've been reading a lot about the German economy being slow so I'm just wondering.

Unfortunately some of them are cancelled.

Growth in the German economy, Europe's largest, is set to accelerate next year, lifted by exports and stronger investment, a report has said.

According to the Ifo research institute, gross domestic product (GDP) will expand by 1.7% next year, compared with an earlier forecast of 1.2%.

Growth also is set to improve in 2005, hitting a higher-than-expected 0.9%.

Germany is emerging from a slowdown and the report is the latest to suggest the recovery is becoming more sustainable.

"The economy really is picking up," said Hans-Werner Sinn, president of the Munich-based research group.

"After five years, there are clear signs that the economic lull has been overcome."

The people are quit optimistic right now and the big pessimism seems to be finally over

I've asked myself the same thing. I was in Frankfurt last Friday and it looks like they are changing some facade parts.

Here are some new photos I took last week from the roof of the 'Main Tower'. I know some of them are blurry, but this is due to the strong winds on the roof.


The cladding has started on the WestendDuo:



Another photo of WestendDuo (on the right):




Construction has also started on the 'Frankfurt Hoch Vier' project which includes two highrises (125m/410ft ,99m/325ft):



Zoomed in:

Deutsche Bahn (German Railway) plans to move its HQ back from Berlin to Frankfurt once it goes public (on the stock exchange) and it wants to build a 200m high skyscraper as new seat there.

Sounds like it's going to be retained, Grumpy.

@Nexus: having read the article I don't think the DB or whatever they call themselves these days is planning to move its HQ from Berlin to Frankfurt. The new highrise in Frankfurt is merely the place where they plan to consolidate their workers who are currently scattered over a number of sites all over the city.
