Well, this is a first sample and for sure not the last one. Currently additional frames are being installed. Let's wait for the results.

Dyn.tek, I wouldn't expect too much for the middle of October, even if the building application should have been submitted at that time.

Since an ECB communication from last Monday (thanks to newfvgffm for finding this) we finally know what this structure is intended to be good for.

It should represent a two-storey 1:1 scaled mock-up of a middle section of the south tower and the adjacent atrium, showing samples of internal finishes as well as of the facade. It will be used for verifaction of technical, functional and architectural details of the facade and the internal design. The facade at least should be finished mid of October.

Normally not worth to post it, but in relation to above, here last Saturday's status.

Thanks for that info
I had guessed it would be used for a facade mockup.

A very beautiful design.

I took this photo from the present head office of the ECB.
My question is the following one: will move that symbol of the Euro to the new headquarters or will remain in that place?

wow, massive!

since when does it have a spire? this will bring it easily over 200m. the towers itself look taller than 185m ... has there been another height increase?

The spire is new! I guess it will count in terms of structural height. It seems to be something between 30 and 40 meters which would push this buildings official height to something between 215 and 225 Meters and the ECB would become the third tallest scyscraper in Frankfurt! Even if this would be a classic



...who cares!

Looks much better than on the first renderings.

And I like how the tower directly emerges from that park. Not the usual in Frankfurt.

If I may add two cozy renders of the buildings' heart

I really appreciate that building. It's going to create a magnificent entrance to the city from the east and it'll really stick out at this location

yes, agree totally. with other towers in the area the cluster would be stretched, and that would ruin the density in my opinion

What's the reason they chose that particular location? Was it just a good opportunity to redevelop the site?

They took this place because it is the European Central Bank. They need really big security standarts for there Skyscraper, so this open and free Space is perfect for the need of Security they have.
