No way! It will be built in a 60.000 inhabitants village outside of Frankfurt! If it was taller, then please INSIDE the boundaries of Frankfurt city!

Great news.
I hope the ECB headquarter will be build, too.

I am always pessimistic but if they really building all the towers that are seriously planed Frankfurt will boom again and the skyline will have a massive change.

Wasn't MT delayed to after 2010? Building this before the construction of the Skyline Plaza or even simultaneously would make the whole building site somewhat chaotic!

of course the MT won't be build before 2010, but at least some news would be great , just to know they're still working on it!

Vivico still did not resist! But in the Skyline Plaza there will be tower One with 212m and the Grand Hyatt 5 star+ hotle with 165m... This is already a lot to be built. At first I feared Tower One would die also. But Vivico and ECE both included it once again into the project. But I am curious to see Grand Hyatt's future design next month!!!!

CHICAGO -- Affiliates of Global Hyatt Corporation today announced the signing of an agreement with Vivico Real Estate GmbH to operate a new 405-room Grand Hyatt in Frankfurt. Slated to open in 2011, the hotel will be part of a 541-foot (165 meter) tower featuring a modern and stylish design. It will be part of the "Europaviertel" in Frankfurt, currently being developed as Germany's largest urban development project.

The facilities at Grand Hyatt Frankfurt will include a wide selection of restaurants and bars and a 10,765 square foot (1,000 square meter) fitness center and spa. The hotel will also offer 26,910 square feet (2,500 square meters) of extensive meeting and banqueting space with advanced technological features.

The hotel will be conveniently situated only minutes from the city's banking district, the Frankfurt fairgrounds and the main train station. Frankfurt International Airport is just a 15-minute drive from the development.

Grand Hyatt Frankfurt will be the second Grand Hyatt hotel in Germany, following Grand Hyatt Berlin which opened in 1998, and Hyatt's sixth property in Germany.

"We are delighted that Hyatt has been appointed to manage this hotel at the important finance and trading center of Frankfurt," said Gebhard Rainer, managing director, Hyatt Hotels & Resorts, Europe, Africa, Middle East. "Hyatt will bring a creative and innovative approach to the room and restaurant design of Grand Hyatt Frankfurt, and the hotel will further enhance our position in the market. This project is a perfect match for the vibrant city of Frankfurt, complementing Hyatt's individually unique and successful German hotels: Hyatt Regency Cologne, Park Hyatt Hamburg, Grand Hyatt Berlin, Hyatt Regency Mainz and soon, Hyatt Regency Dusseldorf."

it`s part of skyline plaza, but they won`t build it (simultanously) unless they find an anchor tenant for it (maybe deutsche bahn, they had plans for a ~200m tower in ffm some years ago..)

A small project near central station uc now. Its not a new building but just a complete renovation of an existing building. From the old building, only the concrete skeleton will remain. Everything else will be new. Nothing too special but still an improvement.

Architekt is Mckler

Fraport wants to build a little highrise (60m) at the airport. Might be used as new Fraport HQ.

They still have to choose a design:


Architect: Schneider + Schumacher

or...


Architect: AS&P
