I still don't like the view from north, it looks too fat, but let's wait for how it appears once in reality and seen from the street. All the others views are really awesome. And I am really curious about how the spire will effect the structural height, and if so, what the buildings height is including the spire.

@Asterix: As far as I know the Euro symbol will not move to the new location. But I can't remember if it stays at all. I hope so.

Btw, it's mid of October, any news from the mock-up building?

Some nice aerial pics, which show the corky measures of the project:

Nice Pic! Haven't seen that one yet, but noticed the spire already on the last renders. It seems to be at least of the same height like the old hall at its ends. So it must be 40+ meters. And with its position upon the roof which seems to maybe 5 meters less than the highest point, let's say 185 + 40 - 5 = 220 (obviously structural) meters. Sounds like music to me...

And finally some pics of the almost completed mock-up building, at least all facade samples have been installed in the meanwhile - thought I already had them posted...

Just hope they go for the non-green version, not just because of colour, also in terms of reflection.

interesting. I'd take the blue facade in the center. having said that it appears to me that there is a facade sample with a brownish touch - is that just a reflection of the market hall, or is there really a brown facade sample?

I think it would be very interesting to see it in brown ...

It appears brownish as a result of reflection and the red light of sunset, in reality it turns out silver-white. But agree with you, it would be really interesting to see it like this.

So the development consists of the main Skytower (185 metres), the EZB Erweiterungsbau (47 metres), and the Groundscraper. Besides being the entrance to the new headquaqrters, what will the old Grossmarkthalle building be used for? The development should have more office space thean the ECB'S old headquarters, the Eurotower.

Not exactly, the extension (Erweiterungsbau) is optional and will not yet be built, the groundscraper was cancelled already in the revision phase. The old wholesale market hall will be used as entrance, for conference rooms, cantine and restaurant. And of course it will have more space than the old premises, this was one of the main reasons to build this.

The building permission has been given by official side (8th of Feb.). This includes the pit and other preps in detail and whole project in general. Construction start for the pit and the demolition of annex buildings is set for beginning of April. In the moment a tender has been sent out to the companies which applied for construction of the tower - 400 folders of specs. End for the bid will be August.
