No, "city beach" shall be opened at different place, P&C car parking near Zeil, but I have no clou which building could be meant. This one now is called "Long Island Summer Lounge" with Ardi Goldman as investor and Nikos Gatzias as caterer behind.

And BMXican - not almost - it will more than twice as high...

That quick the situation can change. Here some new pic's of Parktower and from street level. It's the first time that the new part of the tower overtops the old one. As it is looking now it gives a good idea of what the tower would have been looked like following the first version.

Thanks, hella good! (And nice to see that you ,finally, also get your first "real" scyscraper in Sheffield. )

And as I was anyway around the corner here an update on the Opernturm construction site. I hope I am not boring too much, but I find the details at this phase of the project quite exiting. And compared to other projects here in Frankfurt its amazing how good and simple you get a view offered to them. Later on we will "just" be counting the floors.

The excavation of the pit in the area of the future tower will be finished within the next week and the ground will be paved over in preparation for the steel reinforcement of the foundation slab. Probably the steel reinfrocement works will already then have started in the south west of the area. In the first picture you can see the base element of another construction crane which will find its foundation in the indentation as seen in the mid of the second picture. As it will be part of the towers foundation slab we come to the conclusion that we will see another crane right opposite to the first one rising soon with the tower.









Steel reinforcments works in the southwest corner for the lowrise building...





Here a small excavotor pounding the concrete top ends of the ground pilings in order to expose its rods which will be bounded into the steel frame of the ground plates reinforcement.







And finally the same view as last week for a comparism...

Here a comparism between the one presented July 2006 and the new one:

Better and more playing with the detail.

Well discovered, newfvgffm, now the first rendering is matching the second and third on that site. There was always a small discrepancy between them, especially regarding top edges and facade of the new part with stone cladding. Though I liked it more before the wavelike structure had been flattend.

I'm not sure I like the yellow color. I hope it doesn't turn out so dark.

Quick weekly update on this construction.

Not a lot of news regarding the Parktower develoment. On the back side of the site you could find the piles and bars for the steel and glas contruction building the top of the old part of the tower as seen in the new render provided by newfvgffm some posts before.





Regarding the Opernturm development there had been huge progress but not that far as been expected from my side end of last week. Nevertheless it is close to it...
