Year, I was expecting a lot more this year considering the large amount of snow but it really wasn't much. Looking forward to seeing this complex complete as well.

That is interesting. I am not aware of any construction site were they used boats.

I hope the construction will not be affected by the financial troubles in Euroland. Nothing worse than a half finished highrise for a central bank which suddenly lose its function. So they should speed up a bit.

And if the euro crashes, then the Bundesbank can move in. Their current location is quite dated and too small.

certainly not, especially not with a building which costs 500 million to 1 billion euros. they're being used because of environmental issues (to avoid tons of trucks in the city center).

PRESS RELEASE

Quote:
19 May 2010 - ECB lays the foundation stone for its new premises

Today, the ECB marked the official start of construction works by laying the foundation stone for its new premises at the site of the former Grossmarkthalle in Frankfurt am Main.

밫he ceremony marks the transition from planning to reality, Jean-Claude Trichet, President of the ECB, said, adding, 밒 am very confident that we will continue the very good cooperation between all parties that has characterised this project so far. Our common goal is to ensure that the new building complex will become reality as planned to provide the ECB with healthy and functional headquarters, while keeping the building costs within the foreseen budget. I wish our new building and all of us good luck and a smooth construction phase.

The welcome address by the ECB뭩 President was followed by good wishes from Petra Roth, Lord Mayor of the City of Frankfurt, and Wolf D. Prix, representing COOP HIMMELB(L)AU, the firm of architects that designed the New ECB Premises. Together with the President, the members of the Executive Board, the Governing Council and the General Council of the ECB, as well as the Lord Mayor and the architect, filled the foundation stone with a set of the building plans, with newspapers from all 27 EU Member States, with sets of the euro coins of all 16 euro area countries and a set of euro banknotes, as well as with a coin from the City of Frankfurt. The foundation stone was then sealed and moved into the excavation pit where the double-office tower will be erected.

Constructing the basement floor slab will be the first major works to be started for the high-rise building in June 2010. Preparatory works on the Grossmarkthalle had already commenced in late April this year.

Finalisation of the new premises is scheduled for the end of 2013, with the ECB moving in thereafter, i.e. in 2014.

Further details regarding the new ECB premises, including the texts of the speeches presented at the ceremony, can be found on the ECB뭩 website at http://www.ecb.europa.eu/newpremises.

After 1 1/2 years of halt and 5 1/2 years of site clearing and preparations - finally the take-off!
Can't wait to see EZB go overground in 2011/2012 and Frankfurt East having its first real highrise.

Ironically, this happens during the Euro-crises... hope the is still alive and kicking, when business starts here in 2014
