is it true that this and other projects in frankfurt are delayed because there is a shortage of construction materials and cranes?

The actual problems with this project are due to the unexpected resistant ground plate of the old tower. This will delay the schedule maybe for around two weeks. Normally street level should be reached by August and from then the tower should rise visibly by one level per week. How far this project is hit by shortness of materials is hard to say as the planning started quite early and contracters have already signed (Which is the exact problem mentioned by HD, none of the main constructors wants to sign for such a project due to unpredictable costs for certain materials as for facades and insulating, this is the case with the FFHV towers. There is still enough material, but at its costs). And by the way, concrete is still enough available...

For those who are interested, here a small update from today. The foundation of the former Zrichhochhaus gives up resistence and excavation works speed up again. Also the foundation for the first big construction crane is underway, the first element has been fixed in the area of the future low rise building right opposite the old opera.

Here some impressions:

And those who will be in Frankfurt this weekend for the "Wolkenkratzerfestival" I can just recommend to visit this site. It's worth to have a look at it.
