If I remember correctly, the cladding will be finished in March.

Here is a pic by me this noon.

no, it is not, although only a few centimeters are missing. it will have its final height when the cladding will reach the roof.

Dankesch拓n!
The natural stone facade makes a nice contrast to the glass of Deutsche Bank (which still gets recladded top-down) and Trianon.

They should paint the other three sides lime-green, lime-yellow and orange!
That would be great!

Myself and a friend were in Frankfurt a few weeks back. We were out exploring at night, and walked past the Opernturm saw an opportunity for a bit of urban exploration.

We've posted photos of the exploration to flickr.

Unfortunately we only had one camera battery with us and wasted nearly all of it on one or two flash shots. There's quite a nice two story office space about 4 floors from the top, with an internal balcony and lots of light. It'd be a great place to work, looking out over Frankfurt. It's a pity we don't have a shot of it, but I think the roof shots make up for it.

Here are some sample shots, taken with an Olympus E-500:

Cool, did you enter the building legally or illegally?

the fascade consists of sandstone patterns.
i didn`t know that you can enter the building so easily, thought they would work there all night long... did you use the elevator or did you walk up the stairs to the top?

it always amazes me, how easy it is to enter the construction site of a skyscraper.

We weren't invited, but we didn't pick any locks. We hopped over a 2ft wall.

It was about 2am on a Saturday night, all the workers were asleep. There were no locked doors, we literally just walked in. On our decent we spotted one worker coming out of the cabins around the back.

We took the stairs up and down, not wanting to get stuck in an under construction lift. We also didn't want to break anything, sticking by the mantra of taking only photos and leaving only footprints.
