A little more information...the 2 buildings in the distance in the pic above are both office buildings ("Kranhaus1" and "KranhausPLUS"). The one closest to the camera will house 133 luxury apartments ("Pandion Vista"). The balconies make it look a bit ugly but it's gotta be on the best places to live in Cologne. Right next to the Rhine and depending on what apartment you have, you can see the cathedral.

Nice pictures of a city we don't get too much. BTW, is there a lot of construction Koln? The construction thread for Koln in German forum is dead

There's definitely not a whole lot going on. This Rheinauhafen has been the biggest project over the past couple of years. There are some minor projects here and there but nothing on the scale of what you see in Frankfurt, Berlin or even Hamburg.

Thanks for the answer. Seems like Dusseldorf is where the action is in NRW when it comes to construction.

Yup, there's definitely more going on there with the Medienhafen etc. Oh well, but Cologne is still a nicer place to live.
