That's true. About two weeks ago I had a conversation with someone working onsite and he mentioned that the drillings for the foundation soil analysis of the future tower area have been completed so far. Also, in the meanwhile, there has been built a massive, concrete founded steel structure which will probably carry soon the construction site sign and maybe facade samples or so. Here some pictures from Friday 08/24 and the one before...

Until last weeks Friday nothing special changed since then, but I try to give this place another visit before leaving end of this week for vacation. Although they will submit the tower's building permission not before October I guess there must already be something in the pipeline for the excavation pit and the demolition of the so called "annex" buildings.

OK the name is debatable but so it the name of the tower in Wroclaw (Which is is a nice project btw). 258m isn't that high compared to the big skyscrapers all around the world.
Please, just stop spamming this thread with pictures that don't have anything to do with the Skytower in Frankfurt.

nice tower, but, to be honest, who cares?

Back to the Skytower in Frankfurt. The good news is that the trial won't stop the project in general. They will start with the tower as planned. Can't wait to see the excavators rollin'...

skytower isn't even the official name - it's just a working title. officially it will be the european central bank headquarters ...

and according to the ecb it's two separate towers connected with eachother by an atrium ... 2 x 185 = 370m

Btw: This tower is goin to be awesome - In facts I'm often against towers that are way off the cluster, but in this case it makes just a good matchin impression to me, because it creates kinda "city entry" (maybe together with the Main Plaza on the other side of the Main-Bach ) for the East of Frankfurt. And it has a lot more of a lighthouse-effect as it would stand in the middle of the city-crowd. Will be nice. At least, I hope so.

Sounds like one of this ridiculous "Who has the longer one" comparisons, but in this case, I have to admit, it makes sense...



Sorry, but I really couldn't resist...

Cant wait for the construction. I think it will look much better than on the rendering because of the glass facade and the awesome atrium between the two towers. Should look great especially at night.
