Well the building to the left is occupying one of the most important internet nodes in the world. Even if looking totally displaced, it will be of contignous high importance, as just prooved with this post .

A bit more to left there will be a nice re-developement of the former (and famous) Frankfurter-Rundschau building, one of the major local and national newspapers...

Time for an update, even when the progress is moderate. On the other side two weeks for one level is average in the base area of a tower. The Pics are as usual taken from the Maintower observation deck.

As fare as I know, there will be a Saturn, Fitness company and Parfmerie Albrecht.

But thats the infor from July.

The Saturn on the other side of the Zeil might therefore close as it is too small anyway.

OMH, I talk like I want to. What does that relate to n***as? It's just shorter, spicier and more comfortable to write like that.

Now jerk off by looking at your snobish province lunat.

Oh, before I forget about it: Cordial thanks for the replies.
Btw, does anybody know what's going on with the Hako-building and the Esprit-outlet beside it on the opposite of FFH4? They don't used to look quite appealing to me while I've visited your boomtown

Monthly top rent for a front side shop will be at 500 Euros/sqm or more. There - at least - we have to expect branches of the big chains.

Shops of FrankfurtHochVier

According to last week's Frankfurter Rundschau (Sep 28) Saturn Hansa will have a three story store (with more than 100 employees), Anson's will be at least two story, S.Oliver will be of similar size (3 stories). Fitness Company will have the entire top floor. 60% of the 90 stores are now already filled up (with a total of 52000 sqm). A total of 800 people are expected to work in the shops and another 1800 in the office tower. The shops are still scheduled to open the fall of 2008 (which means construction is on schedule). Also, the supermarket Rewe will open its first big outlet in the city area.

The Thurn & Taxis Palais, which is currently being completely reconstructed for the first time since WWII, will be the home to upscale stores and boutiques (none of which have been disclosed), as well as a cafe and a restaurant.

The hotel tower will be 4 stars or upwards, although there is still no tenant yet (Hyatt? Ritz-Carlton?).

There will be three to-be-named "representative stores" (each 100 sqm) facing the Zeil with €500/sqm, which is supposedly the highest commercial rent for Germany at the moment (according to Steffen Hhn, marketing director of MAB/Bouwfonds). The operators of the mall want chains that are new to Frankfurt/Germany/Europe (meaning about 50% of the stores should hail from this category). I am hoping for smth in the direction of Galeries Lafayette or a Virgin Megastore, which both have chains in Berlin.

Regarding the Hako and Esprit builings, there will be changes for sure given the radical pace at which the rest of the Hauptwache is transforming itself.

Thanks, for the info. Hope they tear down the Hako building.
