Hmmm, I seem to have missed this development on these threads. Good news that something is happening. I hope they build decent retail in there though. Go to Westhafen, and nice enough it is to look at, it's a complete ghost town. These places need a good mix of as you write, offices, apartments, hotels but also (and very importantly) retail.

right next to the european central bank and the new river park, at the westernmost end of the osthafen, there are plans for the mainsquare development. it's a shopping center (about the size of the hessen-center), cinema, hotel and offices.



I doubt there will be more shops in the osthafen area though, but then again, hanauer landstrasse is only 2 blocks away and it has plenty of different stores.

don't expect too many new residential buildings in the osthafen yet (apart from a few loft style buildings) - most new developments are offices and hotels. the (old) idea of converting (parts of the) osthafen into a residential area is still new and not everybody in the city of frankfurt wants that (many businesses located in the osthafen don't want that for example).

That's a good looking project! Seems like the ECB development really attracts wealth and great projects for the Ostend, doesn't it?

2. demolition of builings at the future site of the taunusturm skyscraper started a few days ago. more info here

3. while the skyline plaza development is slowly but surely moving forward, the new website of the development has been launched - more info here

4. looks like the turmpalast is closing in june. this and several other buildings in the vicinity will be demolished to make way for a new development including a residential highrise.

5. first parts of the new facade of the marriott tower are being put in place. meanwhile the new funky looking entrance structure has been finished. pics following soon.

some news:

a design competition for a small office tower proposed in march was held and there were two winners: novotny (offenbach) and schneider + schneider (frankfurt).

- novotny designed a massive stone clad H-shaped block sitting on top of a huge base
- schneider + schneider designed an also massive complex consisting of two glass clad slabs on top of a base
- the winners have three weeks to modify their work
- credit suisse initally wanted to erect a 150m tower, but didn't get the approval (too big for the location, even though it is surrounded by tall buildings, including a 220m project right next door)...
- the new tower is supposed to be 17 storeys tall (32,000 square meters of office space)
- investor is credit suisse, who owns the building complex at taunusanlage 8
- several up to 8 storey tall buldings need to be demolished


first pics:

That is the perfect location for a new highrise. Although 60m is a bit small IMO. But Frankfurt needs fillers.

60m is quite appropriate for this location. Frankfurt needs some smaller towers and diversity.

I'd prefer a mix of both designs, maybe with some setbacks it could look pretty great.

I agree. a lot of midrises are needed to fill the gaps.

60m is the height of the last office floor btw. this means the building will be a bit taller than that. on pictures I saw at an exhibition (pics will follow) it looks almost as tall as T11, which is 75m tall. if the 220m marieninsel gets built, these two towers could act as steps on each side of the tower.

Still do not want T11 kept, though.
