Nice design, but the tower doesn't look like 190meters tall. It's a bit chunky

I'm more interested in what will happen to the Grossmarkthalle at the base of the building. They write it will be the main public entrance, but I wonder how much public access will be allowed as I heard that there will be a lot of security around this site.

It would be a shame to loose public access to this massive market hall, after redevelopment it would be one of the greatest internal spaces in Frankfurt, and should be opened fully to the public.

Anyone know what will be the case here?

Here are some photo's I took at the last public open day in the markethall

Well, good news for Frankfurt, the so called optimisation phase is completed.
It seems the Tower has lost 2 floors, but the former helipod has been increased in height, so it should stay around 180-190m.

Here is a first render:

Also read the following text:


Ergebnis der Optimierungsphase

Am 15. Dezember 2005 nahm der EZB-Rat das Ergebnis der Optimierungsphase des Neubau-Projekts der EZB zur Kenntnis, deren Zweck eine optimale Ressourcennutzung und Kostenminimierung war, stimmte dem entsprechend berarbeiteten Entwurf und Lastenheft zu und beschloss den Beginn der Planungsphase des Projekts.

Great design. At least something unique and special, which is becoming more and more uncommon nowadays.

Unfortunately there are some "Bad" News concerning this project.
As is wrote in #30 the Optimisation Phase is completed and here are the new facts:

Height was decreased to 177m by cutting away 2 floors. Looks really chunky now.
The so called "Groundscraper" is surprisingly cancelled. The only good News.

Instead of the Groundscraper located directly in front of the famous Grossmarkthalle on the Main-Side a new building is connecting the 2 Towers with the grossmarkthalle.
The grossmarkthalle will be used much more than previously thought.
The new building is cutting through the grossmarkthalle, like in the first design of the 1st Phase of the competition, showed below:



But the new building is not to be as massiv as the one shown in the model of the 1st Design.

New Model is in Work as the ECB told.

Now the Detailed Planning is starting.

To our Surprise they reduced the future working Force from 2500 to 2300 in the new buildings.
They will start construction in the end of 2007. That's infact the worst part of it all. We Frankfurters thought they would start constructing for sure in 2006.
2011 the ECB Bankers will move in.

Well not so good News out of Frankfurt.
I am very dissapointed about the height change of the Towers, 186-190 m would have been perfect. At the end they build another 150 Standard Twin.
They told that there might be additional changes in the Planning Phase

2006 is going to be a real shitty year for Frankfurt.
