This has made quite a bit of progress since I went to Frankfurt in the summer. They were digging holes in the ground still when I was there. The renders look fantastic but wouldnt it block that old tower from the Ziel and also the viewing platform on the Zielgalerie will lose visitors. Whilst the views are good from there, it will be blocked by this 90 metre tower. Anyway, the palace looks great and lets hope this thing shoots up. Frankfurt needs these towers.

The view will be blocked, but only slightly and only in one direction. You will still be able to see the banking district with all the skyscrapers and the old town, aswell as the zeil area.

Here is a photo from the german forum showing the project and the location of it:



A little explanation: the red cross is the project FrankfurtHochVier, the yellow crosses are other current projects, the white crosses show other skyscraper projects (I couldn't mark all, some are behind others)

some interesting news: the project will be joined by three more towers in the immediate vicinity - all three residential towers with heights up to 100m - creating a new cluster in the city.

Thanks for the announcement, BMXican. I am surprised to hear that the construction of these residential towers can already be counted as "secure". I, however, regret that one of the biggest English movie theaters in Germany, the Turm Palast, has to close to make room. Not only was it very well visited and had an unusual charm, it was also a real cultural jewel for the large international crowd in Frankfurt (i.e., ECB, the big int'l law firms/banks, etc) to which I count myself. The city of Frankfurt should quickly find a new venue for an international movie theater in the heart of the city, otherwise a lot of people will be very disappointed.

it took long but now it's going fast - the cranes are looming over most parts of the low-rise eastern city center - it is surprising from where in the city the towers will be visible.

great update. this is absolutely huge. it's amazing from which parts of the city you can see the cranes ... this project will loom over some parts of the old town ... these two towers and the 3 neighbouring proposed towers will change this part of the city dramatically.
