This project doesn't look bad at all. It is not something that'll stand out as iconic, but it looks like it will blend into the Frankfurt skyline very nicely.

Well, compared to what they originally wanted to build there, I would say that it is already a huge improvement.

We'll see how this turns out, but I prefer the original version to the most recent one.

The trend in Germany seems to be trabeated architecture. It's a good integration of modern and classical, but probably a little too austere for a lot of people used to the Dubais of the world.

Wow, those are some nice renderings. I love the integration of new and old in Frankfurt.

As a canyon enthusiast, I find the post 12 renderings really persuasive indeed.

I was in Frankfurt for business today and had some spare time...

The core is finally visible from the street.

I love this building. Fantastically simple and elegant. Very jealous of Frankfurt.

Some new photos I took today:





The cranes are getting visible in the skyline (look to the right of the Commerzbank Tower)


That's probably the perspective from which the tower will have the biggest impact (look for the cranes behind the K26 Tower)
