That's not a render, that's the former headquarter of the European Central Bank (called Eurotower) built in 1977.

They are building a new one though. Check this thread:

Its not a render its an actual building. Currently its occupied by the European Central Bank until the new ECB headquarter is finished. Then it will most probably get a new facade and general renovation. It only appears that slender from this particular angle.

Will be interesting how the new facade will look like.

It's a funny angle, looked like a building proposal.

Technical city hall (Technisches Rathaus) - Demolition

The ugliest building of Frankfurt old town core finally gets demolished.
After that, we'll see a part of the Altstadt resurrecting there, they'll reconstruct the most important historical timbered houses there. See thread about old Frankfurt.

Silver Tower (Dresdner Bank highrise) - Renovation

The Silver Tower (highrise with aluminium cladding of the Dresdner Bank from the 70s) also gets some fresh looking cladding. It's almost finished by now.

New Bridge for Frankfurt - at ECB site

Frankfurt also gets a new bridge crossing the river Main.
It will be built next to a similarily looking bridge near the site of the new European Central Bank. It's about to cost around 40 million Euro.

German article about the project called "Neue Mainbrücke Ost" for now:
Quote:
40-Millionen-Projekt
Eine neue Brücke über den Main

Aus 17,5 Millionen Euro sind nun mehr als 40 Millionen geworden. Vorläufig. Wenn die neue Brücke im Frankfurter Osten sich einmal über den Main spannt und das geplante Hauptquartier der Europäischen Zentralbank (EZB) an den Autoverkehr anschließt, wird die Endabrechnung wohl um ein paar Millionen höher ausfallen – wie dies meistens bei Großprojekten so ist. Auf jeden Fall wird Frankfurt das Vorhaben 20 Millionen Euro kosten, womit die neue Mainbrücke zu den besonders teuren Investitionen der Stadt zählt.

About the Silver Tower post, I thought they were still removing the old facade and then building the new one. Either that, or the new facade is currently being built.

Are they really re-building the old buildings near Römer? The last time I heard about this was in a Journal article and it seemed quite undecided then if to rebuild the old buildings or put something new there.

I personally wouldn't mind the old buildings back in that location, and whilst at it, finish off Römer itself.

For those interested, here is more on the location of the new bridge. It will link to the far left of this map on the small bridge (the Honsellbrücke)



And here is the existing Honsellbrücke which it will link to.



Originally, Osthafen was due for rebuilding a bit like what is happening in Hamburg right now, but the current mayor was against the idea and it is still an industrial part of the near central city. Hopefully with a mayor change this will happen.

some builings are going to reconstructed, some not (most of them actually).

don't think there are plans to finish off römer - unfortuntely.

edit re ecb bridge: there are new plans to redevelop a part of the osthafen though - not only offices are planned, but also apartments, hotel, etc.

@Justme: Yes they are. There will be ~40 lots. 8 of them will be reconstructions by the city. Others may be reconstructed if the investors of each building want to (and there indeed is interest for additional reconstructions). So we could easily see half of the area being reconstructed in the state before the allied bombings.

Sounds fantastic. It's about time Frankfurt got part of it's old town back again. It was such a great loss. Nothing like having a good mix of old and new in a city, well, "new" and new I guess in this case ;O)
