What a pity, this tower is completely beautiful, but it's far from the main skyline :/

I think it works well as a solitary outpost, or in some way a forerunner of the Frankfurt skyline.

The European Central Bank is one of the most powerful European institutions.
Inside the main skyline cluster, it'd be just another skyscraper. That way its special meaning for Frankfurt and Europe is emphasized.

In addition, I think it should remain as a solitary tower there. It'd destroy much of the impact if other towers were built around it (which isn't planned anyway). It wouldn't make sense to extend the skyline in this direction as well.

Halfway? More like almost "2/3rd-way"... on ECB-webcam pic of March, 1st I get 28 and 29 levels for slab and 30-31 levels for the cores. Considering the glass top above top floor, I'd say it's at 100-110 meters now.

Seems highly unlikely to me if it will be the ECB hq, for security reasons.

They seem to have planned a press-conference room high up in the tower though, where journalists will get to go. We should start The SSC-news agency and send a team of journalists there for press-conferences regularly.

Next to it are the brothels "Sudfass" and Eroscenter.

The Euro employees will probably find a way to declare those costs as well.
