The ECB HQ is looking amazing. I know people have been describing it as "fat" and wide, but I LOVE it! I think it looks amazing. Very modern and nice.

They are two towers connected between them.

The roof height is 185 meter. It's 220m when you include the spire

The millenium tower is a pipe dream. Never mention it again The next supertall in Western Europe is propably the Hermitage Plaza in Paris, or the redesigned Pinnacle Tower in London of you ask me. If you want to see some supertalls rising, head to Moscow, and in the long term Istanbul

Didn't know about the new spire design. This tower would be much better without one imo, but I stil love it tho. Nice elegant design, nice cladding and a pretty iconic shape, It looks a bit fat from a certain point of view, but it can als look tall and modern. You have to see this one in real life

Such a shame they chose this cheap spire. This used to be one of my favourite skyscrapers u/c in Europe...

It is good to hear that. I hope constructing skyscrapers will continue especially in Frankfurt. I see great potential in this city. Theres third biggest stock exchange in the world and even more bank institues could come there i hope in the future.
Who are the top 2?

Looks quite fat and somewhat ugly. I wish European cities outside Moscow, Paris, and Istanbul could finally start building more than a small handful of decent buildings each decade.
