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
What makes you think that the Millennium Tower is a fantasy. There is still planning permission for the tower, it lacks only the investors. I've even made ​​a request to the City Planning Office in Frankfurt who confirmed this to me.

Yes, the architects didn't like the look of the antenna... lets see what they come up with now.

i guess no, here is a calendar for the planned phases, it is mentioned to be completed by the end of the year, but claddin of the atrium and the roof structure progress extremely slow.

Frankfurt doesn't look very urban outside the main cluster.

all depends on in which direction you are looking. southeast - looks like a village. towards north - like in the photos above - quite dense.
the city centre doesnt exactly correspondent with the geographical center of frankfurt... one could say its rather located at the southern end of the town.

Looks great in this shot, I'm glad they're changing the antenna, if they change it to a spire could you change the height, would it be classed as a skyscraper?
