Frankfurt needs to really get on the stick a little more with the construction.

Auf schlecht deutsch: Frankfurt solle mehr Wolkenkratzer bei konstruktion haben.

These are basically certain:

Skyline Plaza Tower One (UEC) - 212m
PricewaterhouseCoopers Tower - 185m
Skyline Plaza Tower Two (UEC) - 160m
Hochhaus Matthäuskirche - 130m


And there are rumors that the DZ Bank will announce a second tower soon.

But the site is cleared.
It just needs a go ahead.
I'd be surprised if it didn't come, eventually.

PWC Tower 185 will be a much needed addition to the skyline. MesseTurm has been too isolated too long. The new tower will help it make the connection to the main skyline.

Skyline reminds me of Atlanta Ga. Especially the tower with the spire. It looks like the BOA tower.

These are the current projects of Frankfurt:

Construction:
1. OpernTurm – 170m (finished 2009)
2. PalaisQuartier Office Tower – 136m (finished 2009)
3. PalaisQuartier Hotel Tower – 100m (finished 2009)
4. Tower 185 (PriceWaterCoopers Tower) – 185m (finished 2011)
5. Skytower (EZB/ECB Tower) – 185m (finished 2011?)

Proposed / almost sure:
1. BahnTower (Campanile) – 210m
2. Grand Hyatt Hotel (“Tower 2”) – 165m
3. DZ Bank-Tower 3 – 180-230m (is waiting for political yes)
4. Kaiserkarree – 130-150m (finished 2011)
5. Degussa/Evonik - some lower stuctures and one ~100m "tower"
Further:
6. Marieninsel – 210-250m
7. Tower Mathäuskirche – 130m
8. Frankfurter Sparkasse - 190-200m

And circa 10 other (not dead!) projects with more than 100 meters.
So maybe we can see 9 or 10 new skyscrapers in 2012 in Frankfurt. Too bad, that there is no new information about the millennium tower (350-380m).

No, this is brandnew. :p
Vivico want's to build a 210m tower for Deutsche Bahn AG next to the Central Railwaystation on the areal, where the Campanile was proposed in the 90's. And - oho - the administration of Frankfurt is fine with that.

No, it's a new proposal on the same spot. It has both the backing of the city (in fact it even has the support of the Green Party!!! since it will include a new huge bus terminal) and a major tenant (it will be the new headquarters of the German Rail (DB) in Frankfurt).

The first renderings should be released soon, the only thing that's known so far is the height of 210m, which would make it the third tallest in Frankfurt and Germany, 2m higher than Westendstr.1.
