Shouldn't then the thread title not being changed? Or is it too early as there is no actual date for start of construction? Emporis is listing it also as approved.

The glass midsection is fantastic. Boxy with innovation. Although simple, it really doesn't resemble anything else I can think of. That's great architecture....in my book anyway.

Germany sure is picking up steam after almost 4 years of virtual stall.

according to analysts it is only a matter of time until speculative skyscraper construction will pick up again in the city. right now all towers u/c have anchor tenants. this project has progressed the most of all upcoming projects. and it looks like it might go ahead speculatively.

There is even much more space missing than this tower could bring. They are talking about 200.000 to 300.000 sqm of new high quality office space currently missing on the market. Something will have to happen quite soon.

not an explosion, it would be a big bang!
but let's wait and see what happens next. too often good news were resting us in good mood, but let us down again. i take it for granted, but i accept it under usual reserve.

All I can say:

But probably we shouldn't be too euphoric, because not all of those proposed/announced tower-plans are in 'dry towels' (is this idiom also common in the English language?). Let's await the things until that all is foreseeable and certain, maybe than it's time to have a party (of course in the popular glamour-party-metropolis of Germany )

Sounds a bit like PR for some of the projects ("if you look for new office space, see, we have something we can develop for you") and as everybody wants to save his option on a pontential landmark in the new masterplan.
Fortunatly there seem to be enough developers with serious intentions, so if only a part of those projects work out, we still have a very good reason to open a bottle at the end of the day.

Let's wait for the decission on the master plan. Latest then, probably end of October, the last announcements will be made.

Ka-ching!! Kaiserkarree cannot be counted as safe (yet), but everything points into that direction. WinX and PWC tower are also anything but certain, however, I wouldn't be surprised if at least two of the three will become reality quite soon.

Without wanting to sound like a wise-guy, but "dry towels" sounds like "dead pants". Instead say "the announced tower plans are not in calmer waters yet".

^ Great explanation, cordial thanks for the advice

I hope 2008 will be a year of increasing concrete. Frankfurt deserves it.

Here's an additional plan for the intended buildin' area:


And this apparently seems to be a historical inventory's building on the future property of the Fraspa-Tower (Neue Mainzer Strasse 55):


> Does anybody know what's gonna happen to this nice building? Are they goin to demolish it for the new tower? Are they renovating it or even integrating it into the new complex? Would be interested in, thanks in advance

Erbsenzhler,

the historical building on your photo does not belong to the building area. It is the building on the bottom side of the towers plan. The one you mean is on the right side of the plan, corner Neue Mainzer Strasse-Junghofstrasse. At least the historical facade will be kept here.

In the moment you can't leave this city without missing something. And I will be travelling a lot the next months...

Jerry Speyer was in town today for foundation stone laying ceremony at the Opernturm site. He also met "people" from Eurohypo/Commerzbank and I wouldn't be surprised about hearing something of the Kaiserkarree project very soon...
