Really great design I am glad to see that they have incorporated the old factory in the project instead of destroying it entirely.

I guess you're right. it's not so terribly cold (0 now, getting into the plus from tomorrow), but the amount of snow is just awesome. I wouldn't want to work there though

Keep the updates coming. The tower is just about to rise above ground level now.

finally.

I heard they will build the two towers (halves) separately and only after that they will close the atrium making it one tower. is that true?

In the German thread, first troubles were reported. A contractor for building the fundaments was changed. This could lead to overprize and delays. The new contractor for that job is Zueblin. They should be up to the job.

PS: I am really looking forward to seeing that HQ completed. This building might be the single most impressive one of any EU institution then.

Zueblin to finish building new 1 bln euro ECB HQ

FRANKFURT, Feb 17 (Reuters) - The European Central Bank's 1 billion euro ($1.36 billion) new headquarters was back on track on Thursday after key work for the 45-storey skyscraper was given to Zueblin.

The building, set to be the ECB's first permanent home, has developed into a bricks and mortar symbol of the euro's permanence at a time when the euro zone's debt crisis continues to raise questions about the currency's future.

German construction firm Baresel, awarded main structural work for the twisted glass skyscraper last year, was stripped of much of it earlier this month after the ECB became unhappy with the project's progress.

Zueblin "has committed to completing the structural works for the new ECB premises as planned, in terms of timing, cost and quality," the ECB said, adding it expected to move in during 2014.
