Huh, I took today my camera and my plan was to go after work there and take some pictures, but how I see CYstillFI and Tom Green made a great job... I can't beat you guys with my pictures, but if it will be not raining, then I think I can make some pictures anyway and post them here.

One from the day before yesterday:

There is still enough space for more exciting designs in this city.
Exactly!, I know. I traveled to Frankfurt in 2006 (I was there for one week) and the construction of the Park Tower had just begun. At that time I wondered me what has been build there, but now thanks to you guys, I can see the building growing from my home.

The opera palace is very beautiful and the new buildings must be respectful with the place. I hope a good result.

Great Idea! And just the hammering sound of construction is already music in my ears!

@ Asterix: Then you really know the reason. We will keep you updated!

@ Hyper: Don't worry too much about being a beginner. Everybody was once a at this point.

Also here the views from Maintower which I still owe you since the last update. Progress since the last update from up there is amazing. Standard floors have now begun and will rise by a 4 day cycle. The low rise now becomes its final level which is except at its ends set back.














In the back of the area the ground for the addition of the Rothschildpark is prepared.




The progress of the last five days is amazing.




Here the first and long awaited Alimak, the outside elevator to the rising top...




...and here you can buy the ticket for it.




Finally some pics form the northwest out of the Rithschildpark.
