It seems like they wanted to convert the original grain storage into lofts, but it was too costly so instead they build a new tower that looks as if it was the Henninger Turm after such conversion, I think you might call it a soft-loft now



Pretty cool idea actually.

Actually, I think Warsaw is closer to Frankfurt now because in the next years or so Frankfurt will be adding several new towers to its exisiting skyline including an honest 228m tower, no spire, etc (approved), 185m (U/C), 180m (approved), 172m (U/C), 170m (approved), 155m (U/C), 140m (U/C), 140m (approved),130m (approved), 110m (U/C), 100m (approved), 100m (approved) + 90m, 80m, etc - many of these key towers are already U/C. And I am not even taking the future Brexit impact on Frankfurt into account...

So does Warsaw. You mean new towers which pics were linked somewhere up there? This soviet tower with some glass egg on the top it doesn't count. It's not skyscraper.

Because of quality of buildings it is like 2 for 1. 2 buildings in Frankfurt is like 1 building in Warsaw.

Frankfurt looks great, I think it helps that it doesn't have many mid-rises. It goes from very low-rise buildings to skyscrapers, which helps make the skyline look more prominent.

I don't think Warsaw has much quality overall. Just glass on glass on glass, pretty dull designs. I prefer classic designs over glass. For instance, that's why NYC's skyline is so much cooler than the Dubai skyline will ever be. Classic always wins.

Or it won't gain much. There isn't 1 clear destination for business to establish their EU entry HQs anymore, a scenario where multiple cities gain a bit out of London's "exit" while none single one gains all of it is likely. Perhaps Frankfurt will get the most out of it, but there's multiple cities like Paris, Dublin, Warsaw, Brussels etc of which each may take a piece of the brexit "pie" too for various reasons (Paris - 2nd largest EU metropolis, Dublin - the only other english-speaking EU capital city sans London, Warsaw - financial center for Eastern part of EU, Brussels - political center of EU)

Although there doesn't appear to be much of a slowdown in London, with more proposals submitted since Brexit.

No one should expect immediate slowdown in London's projects or boom in other cities. Effects of a shift like this won't be clear for multiple years. I don't expect much negatives in London anyway. It will still remain one of the most important cities in the world and a big metropolis in itself. But losing its priviled EU entry position will 'benefit' other EU cities at least to some degree.

I prefer Shanghai over NYC. But Frankfurt is still good. That pic you linked is great. It's good because the buildings are pretty stick together. Warsaw's buildings are situated on the long distance.

That pic is misleading a bit. Frankfurt's towers are not as close to each other as it appears (with some exceptions). The layout is actually more similar to Atlanta but the new towers will fill some of the gaps...

I would say Frankfurt is more like Philadelphia than Atlanta. I was in Bad Vilbel and there is a great perspective from hill on Frankfurt's downtown.
