^ Agreed. Couldn't be better at this place, hope it will look like that in the last render. We'll see

Very tasteful tower! I am looking forward to watching the area when it's completed.

It's definitely a fairly simple and classic design, but I think it works.

And before those pics are completly outdated, here an update from last Friday. The first underground floor seems to take quite long being built, especially when looking at the most current situation where the progress since Friday isn't that huge. On the other hand it is hard to say as this floor is quite high. We will see middle/end of next week, latest then the first ceiling should be poured.

Thanks CYFI, your updates always are a real pleasure
I also pursue ya construction picture series at the DAF (German Architecture Forum) as often as I can, you make an excellent job mate!

Maybe someone could post impressions of the facade samples, I think that could also be interesting

Parktower update: The first two pics have been taken 10 days ago. The cladding on the north side was already complete, as you might see on the rear edge and corners, but with scaffold still there.







Since last week the scaffold is getting disassembled, at least at the north side. Here a first impression of the new buildings facade from last Friday.

I like the facade as well. Thats Frankfurts first sandstone highrise. And Opernturm will be Frankfurts first sandstone skyscraper.

I am not really sure, if Japancenter and K26 haven't also a sand stone facade, but just in red, goschio. At least they are the first highrise and skyscraper with "classical" sand stone in this colour.

Here once again the Opernturm facade samples, probably shown the first time under the same light conditions as Parktower and the Old Opera and therefore comaparable.




And finally some pictures of the construction site from last two Fridays. Nothing new, as there had been enough useful updates at other places in the meanwhile, but unfortunatly not here and my time is extremly limited in the moment.

This was the status about 10 days ago:














And one week later the progress is steady but still slow. This is probably due to the problem of still very limited space for logistics as the foundation slab for the underground parking hasn't been completed yet. In the moment a bit less than one third is poured.
Prerations for the first ceiling/floor above the slab have started as you see from the yellow panels in the nothern part of the future tower. In the south part they still work on the pillars and walls. I can't help myself but I have the impression that the delay is increasing again.

CYstillFI - your contributions are being missed

Sorry Chaps, but in the moment my time gets just lost for travelling around and coming home to get my clothes cleaned. Even the our dog starts barking as on a stranger when seeing me in the door...

Let's try to give a quick coherent update on this. After, let's say, a difficult start of the first underground floor the construction speeded up up significantly. The obvious delay was caused due to the missing logistic space onsite as the foundation for the underground parking was still not finished. In the meanwhile again it's really fun to visit the site frequently.

First some pic's from Fiday 8/24. At this time they were about finishing the top of the second underground floor in the nothern part of the tower. Also there were pouring the second last bit of the foundation slab of the underground parking.








Progress in the southwest corner of site... the first drive up could be recognized.




Progress in the area of the lowrise...






And this is big window at the main corner oposite to the Opernplatz which really offers a decent view on the construction place. On the other hand it seems already outdated as the contruction will have surpassed this level in a few weeks.




And a view from the south edge which normally is not accessable anymore. The inner piles carrying the loads equivalent to the core in the nothern part are really impressive. The steel used here has a diameter of more than 7 cm.







And now the status of last Friday (8/31). The slab is finished now. Only the connections to the tower are missing and will do so, until the towers has finally settled. The walls in the north are now reaching the street level.








The podium in the background will probably be for the ceremony of laying the foundation stone which should have started today at 16:00h.






A view through the big window of the construction fence.




And finally an awesome pic over the site with three concrete pumps in action.

In the meanwhile the second tower crane has been raised and re-configurated. Pics will, hopefully, follow soon, also from Parktower unveiled.

I hope this compensates my absence here a bit.
