(probably this figure was already mentioned here so I'm sorry if I missed)
But what part of the new Frankfurt Old Town houses are (more or less) true reconstructions of what used to be?

15 complete reconstructions and 20 new buildings/historical impressions.

Awesome project. More reconstructions would have been better though.

Some of the modern buildings actually fit in very nicely. I expected them to have a more negative effect on the redevelopment. Good job. Hope more such projects will become reality.

^ I completely agree, they fit in very nicely, and the reconstructions are beautiful and authentic. I think this project will be a success (it sort of is already)!

I will be visiting during christmass, any chance this will no longer be a constructionsite?

I have been postponing my visit for 2 years now and couldn't wait any longer. Looks like it will be a close one or am i wrong?

Finished end of 2017 and the official opening celebration will be 2018. This confuses people. It is finished end 2017!
Please make lots of pictures.


The project is great. Some stucco buildings are timberframe with stucco/ putz over the timber like in old days. The owners did unnecessary extras to put the buildings in the original spirit.
Also, many plans have been altered to a more traditional approach. That means, buildings have improved from there plans.

The results look absolutely fabulous

But my big question is: will there be more reconstruction projects in Frankfurt like the Dom-Römer-Projekt? It would be fantastic if more segments or even individual houses would be rebuild....

Also: wasn't there something going around about the reconstruction of the spire on top of the Langer Franz and Kleiner Cohn?

I think there probably will, to some extend at least.

I'll just leave this here, courtesy of The Eagle:

It did not slow down the demand when people where forced to proof of having 30% of the cost in cash on the account. It did not slow the demand when people where told of no store branches here. Only family businesses with the owner living here, too. People had also a very, very narrow timeframe to come forward. (Announcement of sale to sale two weeks!) Still, the demand was 10 times the properties available. Witch is the reason, that many of the new builds are going up more historical than planned! Love to show more pictures, but it is hard to get them.


Anyway, there are some "ideas" being examine by the city itself to extend the reconstruction area. This is just an idea for the moment. vola:


This is the "Romer Square" The current construction is in the back of this camera angle.


The 50 and 60`s buildings could be replaced by older ones:



This is the current situation. The Romer is on the right upper side.
Dark blue is pre-war or reconstructed to pre-war.
The light blue is after-war.



The city in this study played with the idea to lay the yellow ones down flat.
The empty space would help reconstruction.
Again, Dark blue pre-war, light blue after-war and save. Yellow would go.



Now the dark red would be new builds.
The light red would be reconstructions.
Btw: The light blue/dark blue lined properties are new designed builds with part of the old design or old material, like reused ground floor



The new quarter would look like this:


One can inspect a flyer from this study. There is a big demand for this flyer.
http://www.file-upload.net/download-...t_2_0.pdf.html
All pictures are approved by Georg Zastrau and the city
Not sure what the status of this is now, but work is always ongoing in a city like Frankfurt.

Underneath you can find the information regarding the reconstruction of these towers. Discussions are ongoing now in Frankfurt's city council.

I'm definitely in favour of the reconstruction of the towers, roof and facades. It would be the cherry on top of the reconstruction projects in Frankfurt

Germany is slowly but surely becoming more beautiful by the day

Germany is a beautiful country, but lots of improvements (reconstructions, revitalizations, renovations) are needed in the larger cities to regain a lot of its beauty. Take Cologne for example: there are 12 historic churches and a big cathedral that are breathtaking, but I wish there was more effort to reconstruct lost architecture around the Altstadt. A mix of modern architecture (neo-traditionalism, etc.) and reconstructions will come a long way.

But that's my opinion.

I think you're right. Especially in North Rhine Westphalia, there is a lot of catching up.

I'm wondering if Cologne has any upcoming reko-projects, or even smaller towns such as Wesel.

Let's hope for the best.

NRW is in a sad standstill when it comes to general quality of architecture. It's ugly and staying that way. I don't see that changing any time soon.

An initiative in Essen is actually advocating for reconstructions, and has been featured in numerous local articles over the last few weeks. I think this will gain traction and bear fruit. In particular, they want a reconstruction of the old Rathaus:





As well as the surrounding Marktplatz:





Some of the city's premier streets are also in focus:





And 'Willy-Brandt-Platz', near the Hauptbahnhof:

Makes me sad to see the beauty that was lost and the replacements. Hope the reconstruction will gain momentum
