/\ Thanks for the update.

One question not realeted to the OpernTurn though: What are they doing to the Deutsche Bank towers? I thought it was just going to be an interiour renovation, but I see something on the facade on your last photo. I hope they wont do anything drastic to the facades of these 2 classics...

Wow, nice update. The last perspective looks great.

Nice progress on this tower, it seems to me to be around 140m now when i compare it to Parktower next to it.
Btw, I've took a few pictures of Frankfurt out of the airplane, where you can see this building nicely , though they're quite old by now (June 29th)

@goschio: that's from the highest floor in the Pölzig-Bau/IG-Farben-Haus.
@mlm: here are two more pictures where you see a little bit more

great new pics!
@omh - the tower is much higher then 140m by now. indeed it`s nearly topped out, as they are working on the crown allready (as can be seen on patricks 2nd pic)

@mlm - fascade of db twintowers won`t be exactly the same - it`s going to have windows that can be opened, so the look will change a bit.

Okay thanks, I guess we'll just have to wait and see how it turns out, but I hope it wont be too different from the old one.

it's taken from the highest floor of the Japan Center. At midday, there is a open public canteen, but I don't know about the other daytimes.

now some more photos from thursday, last week.

members cyfi and schmittchen from the German Architecture Forum plus züblin, the construction company, made it possible to visit the construction site under the guidance of the züblin project leader.

here are some impressions from the tower and some views out of it.
