Seems like it's not looking that bad for the EZB / ECB. This is what someone wrote in the DAF forum:

- Pro Teilausschreibung haben sich 5-8 Unternehmen beworben.
- Innerhalb der nächsten 3 Monate müssen die interessierten Unternehmen Preisangebote abgeben.
- Falls das Budget eingehalten werden kann ist mit einem Baubeginn Anfang 2010 zu rechnen.
- Bisher sind bereits EUR 160 Mio in vorbereitende Arbeiten investiert worden.
So basically, an article of the FNP online says:

- they're most probably able to comply the budget of around 500 million €
- there are 5-8 contenders for any bidding part
- withing the next 3 months the interested companies have to offer their bid
- if they can comply their budget they could start the construction of the ECB Tower in the beginning of 2010
- they already invested 160 million € for preparations of the site



So, no reason to be that pessimistic don' you think

I'd prefer if they wouldn't build the ECB at this place.

Yes, this would have been some crazy architecture. But it would be too expensive. They are already struggling to keep the cost under control with the current design.

Pity! Firstly I don't think the Ostend is the right location for skycrapers and secondly I don't like the architecture of the Skytower, especially because it will not look even close to the rendering when its finished. Unfortunatelly those glassy towers never look that transparent and airy in reality. I would have prefered a new construction somewhere in the existing Bankenviertel. But anyhow, good to have a new construction side in Frankfurt soon.

Fantastic news for Frankfurt. Can't wait to see it rising.

And IMO, the Ostend is a great location. It used to be one of the worst quarters in Frankfurt and now its the shining star with lots of development.

current situation:

i dont think that this megagap will get filled in the next decades. ecb has always planned its tower to stand apart of the central core as a solitaire, and thats also the main reason for the heightlimit permitted by the citycouncil. rumors say that the ecb has been offered a buildingspot in the central banking district (planned fraspa tower areal) without any height restrictations, but they didnt want to have just another tower in the core.
