@Los Earth i totally agree with you! those box towers have no character there are also beautiful towers such as skyper, deutsche bank, nextower, gallileo, t185, even westend tower. unfortunately they are not special.

Hm, imo in Frankfurt box-towers are extremly seldom. O_o

Maybe OpernTurm and City Hochhaus are the only boxes.

canary wharf has boxy towers generally but they have nice facades looks like an average tower in frankfurt. paris has nice designed towers already! there are beautiful designs of boxy towers in istanbul. sorry, warsaw is full with boxy towers except the zlota and palace of culture and science.

It's so funny with you guys. Whenever Frankfurt pictures are posted and a few people like them, you come out of your holes and talk crap about it.
that's a sign of a bad character

Just stick to your Moscow & London skylines, but stop to decry other skylines, it's getting really really boring ...

with afe and ibc you are right, and thanks god, the afe towerwill be demolished soon. japan center has indeed a boxy groundplan but the special roof and the tatami mat-like pattern of the cladding exclude this tower from a mere boxy tower -imo-. The other towers you've mentioned do not have boxy groundplans and by putting the commerzbank tower in this list you just proved that you dont have any clue.

and by the way, before you start your german-nazi-frankfurt-lover shit again: i like boxy towers and i love canary wharf (in contrast to the rest of londons skyline). would like to see more of them in Frankfurt. :p

frankfurt pictures just loved by germans, dutch, austrians and a couple of spanish members for some reason however it was good to decry moscow and underestimate london&paris(much better skylines) by contrived praise don't change the topic,please. this is becoming boring.
