I think it will look much better than at the renderings in the end. It will perfectly fit into the surrounding with the Opera house and the new Park Tower

interesting news concerning the project: it looks like UBS (sorry aspirin ) is going to occupy the entire tower - not only 60% as initially planned.

bauhaus-germany is home to modern architecture - I wouldn't really say the style lacks creativity - it's just looks plain in comparison to some of the adventurous designs of today. some buildings have a striking design, but then after completion the facade or the materials ruin it. in this case I'm going to bet it will be the other way round - the details are important. it will be a very high standard facade. it must be - for this very important location - just opposite the most beautiful building in the city, the old opera, surrounded by some of the most beautiful prewar houses.

Well, the middle part really could be a good example about what the facade (not the entire tower) will be looking like.

8 of 10 is quite a good rating, especially when looking just at this tower itself, as it is nothing special as a stand alone building. But looking at this project within its context, it is something very special. Beside its signal effect for other projects in Frankfurt...

Some fotos from today which I made from the Maintower observation deck. The first one also gives a good picture about the already mentioned Parktower development in the direct neighbourhood (to right right in the picture).

with kindly permission of CYstillFI - a simulation of the opernturm and the neighbouring park tower





the view will change dramatically. actually, the tower will be thicker, I think.

Great job, BMXican!

And as this picture initially wasn't really meant to be a draft for such a simulation, you have to consider that the roof of Opernturm will catch up with that of smaller part of the Maintower building being seen in the lower right corner of this picture. It really will be a massive addition to this part of Frankfurts city center/banking district skyline!

It will take ages before something will start to rise but i am still extreme happy that my beloved city gets a new tall skyscraper. The Main Tower will be perfect to whatch the construction.

Attractive skyline addition

An attractive addition to Frankfurt's already impressive skyline. Except for the mere size of the structure, I am glad it does not contrast with the opera building in terms of surface texture. I hope there will be room to host a hotel, which would provide great views of the Alte Oper, but perhaps there will not be enough room with UBS as the main tenant??
