Good evening mates I just wanna offer u some fresh new renders of the Opernturm. They're made by the fellow German DAF-Forum member Schmittchen, who has blueprinted them from the building board at the construction side.

Enjoy all those great new renders from outside and -surprise surprise - the inside of the building!

I still think that a restaurant overlooking opera and skyline could potentially be one of the most stunning in Germany. The building is striking all the right chords, it could win lots of awards.

i prefer the tower looking a bit "fatter" than being thin. the opernturm perfectly fits to it's neighbouring buildings especially parktower with some glass facade

if you look at the commerzbank on the night shots, you'll see that the whole picture must been stretched a bit (i thought exactly the same when looking at the pics for the first time )

I agree with you Patrick, this was exactly my impression, the skylines shots look definitly slightly streched. As I have quite a good feeling for this things I am really confident that it will be less "fat" than one could expect from this renders.

Here the "online" version for SSC:

Yes, HD, as in the good Frankfurt tradition and also completly new, see Commerzbank, Messeturm and Westend Str. 1 and sometimes also Maintower, when the Restaurant is completely lighted.

Of course not, newfvgffm, nice job, this is exactly what it should be . I am currently and the next two and half weeks somewhere in the Atlantic ocean and just lucky to be in the position to post the stuff from Friday, the connection is as an old times with a modem... hard experience.

And to complete this series, here the contruction update.

First some pics from Parktower. With some fantasy you might get the final impression without the rest of the scaffold.










And here the pics from Opernturm site, this time without a lot of comments as everybody can go without them.





















And for those who might remember the youngest Opernturm-fan from one of my earlier posts here the proof that someone else must also have realized and included it into his plannings for the big window on the main corner.

you have to love tishman speyer, they always think of the children

great update, as usual.

the opernturm construction looks enormous. can you imagine, that it will be 50% taller than the neighbouring parktower, which looks so tall at the moment. the parktower looks great, though Im not a huge fan of the glas-facade - looks like the old zurich-hochhaus.

I really like the trend in frankfurt towards natural stone cladding. it looks so elegant.

Also here it's time for an update. Let's start with Parktower. Except on the west side, the scaffold has been completly removed and the tower offers almost its final appearence, at least from the main views.






I am not sure if the apertures in the middle will be closed at the end, but I afraid they won't. Unfortunatly I can't remember any render showing this side.






And here a curious combination of towers as seen from the Rothschildpark.

Since yesterday Opernturm has completly reached street level, the ground level's floor of the south part has been poured. From now on we have to look upwards for future updates.
