Great shot of Maslak! It's getting more dense as the days go by!
I remember an older picture taken from the same spot, quite a while ago.
Perhaps we can compare the two...

Does anyone have renderings of Frankfurt in the future? I rememeber seeing some a long time ago here, but can't find them now. They showed most of the city, and included a lot of proposed/approved towers. In front was the area with the new € coin hotel...

Hi mlm,
i think u mean this picture:



But unfortunately are lot of those proposed projects are cancelled or postponed due to the dramatic economic situation ( unfortunately ) in Germany.
Here i made a little Picture how the skyline could look in about 10-15 years.
I only stitched in the projects believed to be built.




At the moment we have not really much going on in Frankfurt.
We have the so called Blue Heaven ( http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=139828) with its 87m, then the westendduo 96m and for sure the zeil project with its 2 towers ( 123m and 90m ), the Maintriangel ( 58m ) in one year for sure the EZB Project. ( up to 180m, final decision about the design will be in november ).

Than in the near future i suppose comes Kaiserkarree ( 135m ), former Zurich Highrise ( now called Tishman Speyer Tower ), renovation of DZ Bank ( http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=119289 ) , Probably MAX of the german Bank ( well if they did not outsource themselves until that day ), Marieninsel a 250m project of Deka Bank.
Tower One ( 211m ) and Tower Two (160m ) by Vivico ( if UEC is buildt, a big shopping and entertainment area) and finally the Highrise at the güterplatz ( 160m )
Millenium Tower is dead. Well there is the allowance by the city to build 375m high but with which investor, name one, haaarrrgghhh

Anyway we have a lot of projects but not really highrises.

Well lets hope there are still highrises going to be built in Frankfurt, besides of all envy bad behavior to each other, we highrise fans should be happy about all highrises being built.

Finally i have to say that i think that Frankfurt will be still in the Top Twenty for quite some years, but it will not be the number one anymore.

Good night
P.S. No responsibility on the informations given, and sorry if i forgot one or two projects.

can we have an original of that frankfurt pic please?
im glad frankfurt is still building, but building less than london
im afraid for this thread the winners are inevitably london and mosow, and depending on whether you think istanbul is in europe or not that too. we have so many projects coming online now in london its just amazing.

Gracias newfvgffm, the first one was exactly what I was thinking of

About the other one, isn't it MAX you have placed just behind Commerzbank to the right? I though that was dead for sure. A real shame since I loved that design, and know a lot of other people feel the same way. Of the remaining ones my favorite tower has to be Urban Entertainment Center 1 (Tower One), I hope we'll see some progress on that soon.

I'm sure the German economy will be back on track sooner or later, and then the towers will start rising faster again in my favorite European skyscraper city

YYYYEEEEESSSS!!! Sun Plaza will have a spire on top (look carefully )



As I said before though: it would look better with "twin spires" (like Sears Tower or Hancock Building in Chicago)

Oh well - still GOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOD.

Too bad Maslak is way up north (like Canary Wharf)

It would look a lot better closer to the bridges on the Bosphorus (along Sisli, Gayrettepe and Levent)

I think they would be a little too far to be on these pics. They would be on the right anyway. I think not too far on the right of the second pic.
