I looked at the German Wikipedia and notice that the Silver Tower is getting renovation in the early 2010s. Reduction of carbon emissions and energy consumpsion will be essential. The facade will be replaced and the interior will be modernised.

I looked at the German version of the Frankfurt developments thread and apparently the Frankfurter Buro Center and Theodor-Heuss-Allee 110 are going to get new exteriorfacades in the future. Are there any other Frankfurt Skyscrapers that are going to be reclad?

the next candidate is the old degussa tower (see maintor development below) - not exactly a skyscraper but nevertheless a reclad in a prominent location. others are probably the old commerzbank tower and the eurotower once the ecb moves out (see news below)





speaking of ecb: construction of the new european central bank hq skyscraper is starting in spring 2010.

some new pics:










some info:

the northern tower will be 185m tall (45 floors)
the southern tower will be 165m tall (43 floors)
the total height (including antenna) is 220m






another project starting spring 2010 is the maintor development (3 new towers + one reclad):

some pics:











not sure, if this has been posted here before:

renderings of the marieninsel tower:

although not a highrise this should be mentioned here: the revitalisation of the zeilgalerie shopping center (42m, 10 levels) is starting now.

That looks really good! Zeilgalerie has become pretty decadent in recent years. I hope it will get upgraded.

Will they close the entire Zeilgallerie during the work or will it remain open?

the zeilgalerie remains open during reconstruction, tom.

maintor starts this year, but there have to be several buildings to be demolished first.

Hafenpark (harbour park)
New park will be created next to the European-Central-Bank site. The park will have sport facilities and restaurant.

Construction should start in 2011 and first sections will be finished in 2012.

size: 40,000 qm

overview:


Design competition winner:
sinai
Faust.Schroll.Schwarz. winner

Not the winner design but it provides nice overview:

btw. the construction schedule of the neighbouring ecb tower project has been released.

I do not see it as a waste, every new free space for leisure is is a win! So I support it and jugding by the plan it might become a nice park! What would you prefer? Another highrise so far outside the inner city?

Don't think so. It seems to me as if it is becoming a permanent design object without realistic plans for the near future.

apartments (not necessarily highrise, but why not. just around the corner there is a hotel tower planned. why not creating a small cluster ...). there is a huge demand for apartments. there is enough "space for leisure" right next to this site. there are not many empty prime sites at the river left.

I know. But I am no fan of building the whole river long. I prefer such spaces as public spaces. But this is a matter of taste.

Parks are wonderful people places. Frankfurt certainly needs more of them.

I know what you mean. Apartments are nice along the riverside. Wouldn't mind one myself :O) Though I have to say, almost all new apartments along the river in Frankfurt look almost identical, bar some cosmetic changes.

But I really think this area would be nice for a park. On further refelction though, this park does seem rather lame. Just a bit of grass, some trees and places for emo's and skateborders to hang out ;O)
