is Frankfurt possibly expecting more towers now with Brexit and companies moving from London to elsewhere?

Most of the towers are residential.
The combination of brexit and Frankfurt building boom is just lucky I guess. But yeah I think it has some kind effect later on.

I would also keep in mind that Frankfurt only has 738.00 people and Warsaw has 1,3million let's not even consider Paris massive population.
Quite impressive for a small city
Warsaw - 1.75mln, between monday and friday (day) over 2.4mln.

How can 700k people switch living in a city and then out so fast? I don't understand. Or do you mean visitors/tourists?

He probably means people working there. In which case it's not much different from Frankfurt.

Ah i see that makes a lot more sense!
But that doesn't explain the demand for residential high rise but only office High rise.

Regarding Frankfurt:
Many are so eager that their capital London, Paris, Moscow, Warsaw etc. is or will be overtaking Frankfurt that many forget that Frankfurt is actually growing too. Very fast right now actually. Frankfurt's already pretty awesome, dense and tall skyline will have about a dozen more towers in just the next 3 years:

Frankfurt am Main, Skyline by Daniel Vorndran, on Flickr

Nightline-2 by Hans Daniel, on Flickr



Especially the last perspective is imo still the most impressive skyline shot in Europe. It's big, dense, tall and has cool/iconic designs. That's hard to find all in one view/perspective across Europe.

Frankfurt isn't really a small city. In it's proper borders it only has 732,688 people(Warsaw: 1,744,351) but it's urban area has a population of 2,221,910 (Warsaw: 2,311,000) and the metropolitan area 5,500,000 (Warsaw: 3,105,886 and that's the highest count I've ever seen).

Currently I think Frankfurt still has the best skyline in Europe, it's definitely the most picturesque and overall has the best attributes such as height, scale and bulk.

If London had one cluster it would definitely in my opinion be the best in Europe, but it doesn't - although from certain angles such as Shooters Hill and others it can appear as a continuous skyline.

Frankfurt's position could well change when Canary Wharf and The City's under construction skyscrapers are completed - we will have to wait and see. But in 15 years Canary Wharf has changed dramatically, bring on the next 15.

@ Union Man


It's funny how we all see different things in skylines on these pages ..


I disagree with you ..


London is a tier above Frankfurt now .. as indeed is Paris.. and Istanbul .. and Moscow ..

thats a classy attractie skyline. Its strenght lies in fact that you don´t have to be a fan of architecture to like it. Its in harmonious rhytm with the old city.
