I guess they must have brought back the old proposal instead of planning to build a tower less than 100 metres in height.

There was an agreement about the height increase of the tower earlier this year. City hall agreed to increase the height again after it was shortened to about 80m or so some time ago. But Deutsche Bahn had to agree on several demands of the city council in order to get the newerly height increase.

I remember they had to upgrade a municipal park, to create 160 units for social housing and help to restore a street. I'll search for it. It was a FAZ article!

I'll go there on Tuesday. The autos are okay, but I am really not interested in the Weiber!

There are other contenders and we don't have a final decision about this so far, but it's probably going up:

according to local newspaper faz, the zaha hadid proposal dropped out of the selection process. probably some politicians and bourgeois considered it to be too futuristic for this place.. now 2 contenders are left, both will revise their proposals.

A revised version of KSP may turn out to be at least a non-eyesore building. Maeckler is ugly from a to z! A horrible proposal!!!

The futuristic one looks very good in the rendering (angle, illumination) but its questionable whether it will look like that in reality. The builing might appear very monotonous and the facade is nothing special (aluminum?).

A revised version of the KSP or Maeckler proposal might turn out to be the better option. The facade will be sandstone and the separation into smaller units might look more interesting. I also like the idea of a small corner tower. Hopefully it won't be as cheesy as in the Maeckler proposal.

I like it. It is modern but even though it goes well with the old style facades of it's neighbour!

But it could turn out hideous as well, if that's Sichtbeton glooming there.



Some reminder for the Europaviertel in the other (West) side of Frankfurt:
