Obviously everybody was hoping for a 200+m skyscraper on this site, but it is still a big improvement compared to the building currently occupying the site.

Also I really like the fact that the Taunusanlage is slowly getting framed by skyscrapers on both sides.

I am sorry to say but that is boring. It has references to old classical stuff and I normally love that but now I think Frankfurt needs something that breaks from that.

Mies would be proud of the design! Beautiful, true international style revival!

bekanntenIn the draft, especially the now closed on the lower floors front falls on. The amount is to be limited in the development plan to 155 meters.


Completely new is the following view from the direction of Trianon. At the corner Mainzer Landstrasse and Marie road is to be closed with a ten-story building in the block edge.

i like the facade, but it's a pity it's not 50m to 70m taller.

Frankfurt seems to be an island of sanity in a country aspire to modernity yet its stagnation prove the opposite

I'm looking forward to any case on the tower, even though many complain about the architecture and about the height.

Modernity is not something Germany need to aspire to. More than architecture, the strength of the economy, which can be based only on scientific prowess, up to date infrastructural standards, and the progression of modernity and post-modernity in all of society`s institutions and thinking, is a real hallmark of modernity.

Architecture is about taste and market dynamics. Many germans reject that their cities aesthetically develop past the point of recognizing the importance of the cities` histories, whereby modernity was once co-formed in its pioneering manifestation.

Allright, you were referring to architectural modernity, why didn`t you say so?
In that case, I guess Germany isn`t aspiring as hard to be modern as you gave the impression to believe.
Although, I`m not convinced that building height is a defining characteristic of architectural modernity.

Agree totally with you. Although this site is called "Skyscraper City" we all know that it encompasses far more than just high rise buildings. Germany is, quite rightly IMO, determined not to lose the identity of its glorious architectural past, hence much restoration and complete rebuilding of places lost, mainly through the destruction of WW2 but also by misguided post war ideologies. Frankfurt is the financial capital of the country and has embarked on a high rise building programme, whereas Berlin, for example has opted for a more traditional look and that's fine, it gives the country a varied perspective on architectural styles which I think is great.

Where is Berlin still traditional. The city is a prime example of poor post-war architecture.

My guess us he meant the aesthetic preference of present Berlin architecture, much of which has a retro-, turn of the 19th century style to it (inspired, not faithfully copied). That is, the city "shows a taste" for its own past and tries to restore its partially lost cosmopolitan atmosphere.

Berlin also carries through several reconstruction project, yet that is also the case for Frankfurt Old-town and nothing special for Berlin.

Very slowly, however, Berlin may in fact even be beginning a (very long) catch-up process on the highrise front.

Taunusanlage (street /lil "Central park" ) is already a wonderful urban place . Skyscrapers and wonderful vintage low rises and good public transport.
Also , the height and the design could be better ... But cool , one tall project is completed and the next one is in the pipeline ...

The official name of the project changed to Marienturm.
The low/midrise part is now called Marienforum.
