Another, closer rendering of the sports arena. It'll be probably called Rhein-Main-Arena btw.



I hope they don't change anything at this design and just build it! Looks simply upsetting

Best way to go there is by taxi.

MainTor / WinX / Degussa-Area

I've found some additional renders regarding the proposed Degussa I (aka "MainTor" respectively "WinX") that will ascend the sky around 150-170m.



Here we go:







Some models of the tower






An additional overview, made by a forumer of the DAF (with SketchUp)


I really hope they realise this project, it would be quite valuable for the skyline from nearly each direction

Just noticed that the old school opposite Südbahnhof has been knocked down. This is a real pity as it was a beautiful old building, and Frankfurt isn't exactly blessed with historical architecture for a European city.

Anyway, the dirty deed was done. Does anyone know what will replace it? It really is in such a prime spot.

This crap will replace the historical building. Only positiv thing is that the ugly 70s concrete box next to it will also be torn down.

Thanks Rohne.

What a great lost opportunity. I was saddened when the old school was knocked down, as it was so pleasing to the eye. It had character and looked great.

But then I thought if something grand went up in it's place, it would not be too bad.

What a shame.

WinX will be realised, construction starts at the end of next year and will be finished until 2013 -.-

Height of the tower has been cut to 100 meters + another tower of 60 meters will be added.

Updates

Let's raise some dust, it's gettin a bit boring here

I wanna draw the attention on the development of Frankfurts towers - therefore you should have a look at the updated threads.

> Opernturm, construction update

> FrankfurtHochVier, construction update

Cordial thanks for the attention so far.

one of frankfurt`s biggest and most spectacular projects U/C wasn`t even mentioned here before... i`m talking about the airrail center, an office/hotel/mixed use-building, located directly above frankfurt airports highspeedrailwaystation. it`s 660meter long, 9floors high, and has about 140.000 m² rentable space (about 50% were rent before construction started). investmentvolume is about 660million €, date of completion is 2009.
the projects homepage is www.airrail.com

the "deutsche bank"-twintowers are going to get a new fascade, completely new interior, and a public cafe in the entrance area.. also the co2 emission will be reduced more then 50% (!). it will be the biggest highrise reconstruction in europe atm, and is scheduled to be finished 2010. architect is mario bellini from milano..

but why didn`t they publish any renderings yet?!?
