In my opinion definitly Frankfurt, but I still like Berlin a lot more as a city, because it's more vibrant, living, cheaper and errr... probably a lot more, I simply love Berlin, but Frankfurt has the skyscrapers.

Some very good news here if these proposals finally start to become reality. Frankfurt has been rather stagnant of late, and it could do with a big boost.

I'll keep my fingers crossed.

~6 new 150m+ towers in 2008 ... this could be the long awaited big boost.

Nice to see Frankfurt grow higher and denser with skyscrapers!

Does anyone know what will become of the old ECB building when the new one if finished?

it will probably be refurbished. I hope they demolish it though and replace it with a new taller tower.

anyway, the boom in frankfurt continues:

the dz-bank announced plans for another tower, a 180m skyscraper next to their famous westend strasse 1 skyscraper-headquarter. mäckler is the architect.

you can see the location of the tower in the pic along with other projects in the area:



this is yet another surprising project - just around the corner from the (only weeks ago announced) FRANKFURT | PricewaterhouseCoopers Tower | 185m | Pro and the FRANKFURT | UEC | 212m | 52 fl | 160m | 40 fl | App‎, which is starting next year.

it looks like until 2010-11 frankfurt skyline will double in size

more news:


according to the frankfurter neue presse two more towers could be finished until 2011

the FRANKFURT | Neue Mainzer Strasse 55 - 57 | 197m | 55 fl | App , which apparently could be built by OFB projektentwicklung

and the only 135m tall, but pretty massive, kaiserkarree - according to somebody whos working at commerzbank (?) the existing building will be vacated in autumn, demolition could start immediately and construction could start in spring 2008. apparently tishman speyer is interested in this one ...

I dont think so.

the campus towers will be 100, 110 and 140m tall, the new poseidon will be 170m tall, pwc is 185m, uec 1 is 211m, uec 2 is 165m, the only tower that is wrong is the matheus church tower - it will not be 130m, but aparently 150-170m tall !


and here we come to the news:

the preparation works on the ecb hq (185m) started - thanks to cystillfi, see the ecb thread

the preparation works on the 135m kaiserkarree will start soon, see the kaiserkarree thread

the matheus church tower wil aparently be 150-170m tall - and not 130m - an insider gave this information on th german architecture forum, there is alreadya design, which sit still kept secret, but will be presented to the public soon

Lil' projects' overview out of the clouds

While we're at it, I could virtually add a superior aerial pic with most of Frankfurt's proposals, made by a fellow German forumer (derUlukai). Enjoy:
