The final design unveiled today

The winner of the architectural competition for the reorganization of the former Deutsche Bank site is firmly named: UNStudio from Amsterdam won the eight-member prize, consisting of representatives from the city, architects and urban development experts and Groß & Partner Grundstücksentwicklungsgesellschaft mbH



A total of fifteen national and international architectural firms participated in the competition. These included both individual offices as well as some applicant groups, so that the participant field consisted of eleven applicants. The challenge was to create a mixed-use, urban city quarter consisting of four high-rise buildings and a multi-storey, connecting pedestal building in the heart of Frankfurt's city - a new attraction for the people in the Mainmetropolis. Retail, gastronomy and hotels, as well as a comprehensive range of accommodation, which also includes 8,000 m² of floor space according to the funding programs of the city of Frankfurt am Main and the state of Hesse. The Frankfurt skyline will be redefined with the four towers, which are up to 228 meters high.

Awesome! I'm very happy that they didn't change the design much compared to initial renderings. Let's hope they start soon!

This is what frankfurts needs! It will make downtown massively dense with the other 3 towers u/c.
Inside bankendistrict we will have then: 228m, 185m , 170m, 155m, 120m, 110m and 100m.

The smallest tower seems much lower than 100 m

I had not expected that a) UN is going to win the competition and b) that the winner is going to design all four towers...this is awesome!
(I expected four square boxes with atleast 2 Mäckler designs, thank god this did't happen)

The tallest tower seems to have grown a bit. Is the light on top of the tower an indication for a possible spire?

I like them. Hopefully the era of the glass box will finally end and architects will get over their fear of doing something bold and interesting. Not every building needs to be eye-catching but it's good to have a few.

Unbelievable ... I've already lost the overview about the number of towers U/C in 2017 ... Can't wait to see all of them rising!

Keep pushing Frankfurt! Now we just need our 365m Supertall! It will happen!

Found this graphic on the official website of the project:



... and I wondered, if the tallest office tower will have the highest occupied floor in Frankfurt.
Messeturm and Commerzbank are higher, but Messeturm has the pyramid which features only machine rooms, if I am not mistaken. And you can see from the picture above that only one core of Commerzbank tower is taller, but no windows are in that part, which would be to small anyway.
