The building itself is just about decent but I'm sorry... This is nothing but another squarish monument to the imperialist bureaucratic monstrosity the EU is.

I agree. the location of the site is the ostend - until recently not a very desirable area. to the right and to the left there were industrial areas, the residential neighbourhod next door was not very desirable either. but in past few years, one industrial area was replaced with a very pricey residential neighbourhood, the other industrial area has been demolished to make way for parks, a shopping center, hotels and office buildings, and the old residential neighbourhoods is getting an upgrade at the moment, with many renovations and new replacement buildings. the day the ecb is going to move into their new hq, the area will look completely different.

Ostend underwent probably the most remarkable transformation in Frankfurt. From poor working class to upmarket hip place.

Nice update between. Looks like golden October weather in Frankfurt.

I know that the location of the ECB has been discussed earlier in this thread, and I do not intend to start up that discussion again, but can anyone explain why ECB is located in the Ostend and not in the Bankviertel?

Just as a curiosity, what importance does Osthafen play for Frankfurt? Is it possible we might see a Hafencity sort of development in Osthafen one day?

@ JLAG
the ecb didn't want to be just another bank in the banking quarter - they wanted to separate themselves from the others (spatial division as a symbol of the independence of the ecb). the other reason for the location is the possibility to expand in the future.

@ Joka
part of the osthafen is already being redeveloped. recent reports suggest that some residential development could be possible in the future (apart from offices, hotels, shopping). large parts of the osthafen are going to remain harbour areas though - the idea to move the harbour further east have been abandoned.

Can you believe it? Every time I think this thread has an update it's some god damn bot. Most major religions teach us that human life is sacred, but when it comes to spammers I say without shame that I hope they die a most horrible, slow, painful death as punishment for the countless hours of countless people's time they have wasted with their garbage.

I'm surprised you didn't even get a ban for that donk comment, but now you are actually recommending others to take meditation lessons? Dude, you are even beyond ridiculous.
