good news! i wasn`t against those midrises, but in a way they are rival to some new really big developments in that area that i would prefer..

Isn't that where The Millenium Tower was supposed to go? Does this mean it's dead?

No, the Millenium Tower is not dead now. Even though is quite unlikely it will be build soon. They reserved the building area, which is located just next to the new shopping center. Its actually between the Tower 185, the hotel tower and the shopping mall.

The Skyline Plaza hotel tower now looks shorter than 160 metres. An apparent height reduction, perhaps?

indeed. height of the tower has been cut down to about 113m, and it will host only the hotel, no luxury-appartments.

I like it better this way. Frankfurt has too many towers in the 160m range already, some smaller towers are healthy for its skyline appearance and the process of densifying it.

the height is ok. although it will look lost, if all the proposals in the vicinity get built (http://img91.imageshack.us/img91/6130/vca.jpg - source of original picture is vivico).

I don't think so. Japan Center doesn't look lost in the middle of the financial district either, while being rather small.

It will look as it does now just a bit brighter, they are just cleaning the cladding (i think the four floors below the ones which are under construction have already been "refurbished")

DIC, the developer of the maintor development (construction starts 2010) announced today, that KSP architects and the maeckler architectural office are desiging two of their maintor towers.


Quote:
DIC: KSP and Mckler to construct the MainTor towers in Frankfurt

Frankfurt, 26.03.2010

In consultation with the City of Frankfurt, DIC (Deutsche Immobilien Chancen) has reached a final decision on the choice of architectural firms for the two “WinX” and “MainTor Panorama” high-rise buildings in the MainTor project in Frankfurt:

* “WinX”: KSP Jrgen Engel Architekten GmbH
* “MainTor Panorama”: Prof. Christoph Mckler Architekten

With this decision DIC follows the recommendation of the panel that had already unanimously recommended the combination of these two designs in the previous advisory procedure in December 2009, since it represented the best urban solution. In the meantime, both designs have been revised according to the panel’s suggestions, do harmonize very well and together with the surrounding buildings they complement the attractive skyline of Frankfurt.

Ulrich Hller, Chairman of the Management Board of DIC: “The City has supported DIC’s planning work in a very constructive manner and, in the end, has appreciated our planning with the now adopted development plan. By this decision the next key milestone in the completion of the project is implemented according to plan.”
new renderings:

1. situation today


2. view of the development (the left tower is designed by maeckler, the central tower by KSP. the third tower was also designed by KSP, there was no competition for that though.)


3. view from the west


4. view from the river
