Haha, always at your service

Frankfurt is indeed booming right now. They seem to redevelop every corner of the city.

It's especially great that they reconstruct parts of Frankfurts destroyed old town district


This is an example of a building they will rebuild (it's called "Goldene Waage" = "Golden Scale")

(by wikimedia)


Some buildings they rebuilt in the 80s (at the Römerberg, where the city hall is):




The city hall (Römer), also reconstructed

Good to see there's a will to build beautiful buildings again!

Speaking of the Messe area, I can see some red cranes from my apartment in that district, is this for this new Messe Hall, or for one of the new skyscrapers going up? Anyone know?

The Tower 185 site uses red cranes. They were erected in the last weeks.

As far as I know, they got the green light by the city administration but the construction itself was delayed. There are no news about the final design, neither any news about the Grand Hyatt and Tower 1 was at least temporarily kicked out of the project.

looks like 142m high FBC (40floors, office) will get a reclad in the near future. the entrance of the tower has been reconstructed recently, and it seems that they will now pimp the rest of the tower.







also there is a render showing 72m high office-scraper at theodor-heuss-allee 110 with a new fascade, so its pretty likely that this one gets also a reclad in the near future.



current situation:

Should I open a new thread for this one? Or could anyone else do it? The project kinda deserves it.

At first, let's keep in mind how Frankfurt's old town looked before the bombing raids of WW2 (around 1940):


The intended area for the reconstructions is the quarter left of the cathedral (in the middle, stretching into the direction of the market place)


Comparison - after heavy British bombing 1943/44:



And how it looks today - the big ugly brutalist crap to the left of the cathedral will be demolished (the "Technisches Rathaus" - 'technical city hall'). Then it'll be replaced by some reconstructions of historically worthful timbered houses.



More information & links (from a picture thread):
How is this plan going?

I always thought that the Technisches Rathaus was going to be torn down to make way for a five-star hotel, but we intend to rebuild several structures that used to stand on the site before they were destroyed in World War II.

I don't live in Frankfurt. I'm just a modern-day nomad who travels to any city in the world. Before I joined SSC, I used to go to Frankfurt frequently because there were so many new skyscraper proposals. I usually find information about them on Emporis. Now most of the new skyscraper proposals have gone stale and the info on many buildings is probably outdated.
