i really want to have that 230m tower, and i bet it will be build...but i've big doubts that this dream will become reality. even when they can build a tower there, i guess it will be downsized to less than 200m

Re: Green opposition to highrises, is the municipal government still a CDU-Green alliance ? Is Petra still the mayor ? How much clout do the Greens have ?

Thanks in advance.

yeah, mighty petra(the best female mayor we had so far ) is still mayor with a little help of the greens.. greens have enough influence to prevent a nearly safe 230m highrise, said enough?

still, the new highrise plan got published online, together with the city overall highrise concept. they contain a lot of information (partly disputed; as on one sheet winx is still listed with 180m, and marieninsel with 250 on the diagram) but sadly no building taller then 210m..

Well, look at it this way: Does any city punch above its weight like Frankfurt ? Seriously, as small as it is, and one of only ten 'Alpha Cities' in the world. Damned impressive if you ask me.

I don't think its boring at all. Looks very elegant IMO. Especially the black framework looks great.

Yeah, I think it looks elegant and timeless. I certainly wouldn't mind it being built in my city.

Rotterdam is also building a glass cube, but much better!

Yes, the Rotterdam one is more spectacular. But then keep in mind that the Frankfurt cube will be built in a suburban business park and not in the city center.
