@ old diamond exchange

Not bad but not excellent. Probably the most you could get out of the old diamond exchange building. And more residential in the inner city is always good. Pretty sure the apartments will sell quite rapidly.

Thats how it looks today:

Any chance of interior renovation as well? Maybe some internal link to MyZeil would be possible.

Thanks Goschio, I'm going to pop in next week and check the showroom out. I like the white look from that photo, as the current interior is quite dated.

Only a pity no links to MyZeil. It would benefit both malls as cross traffic can only be a good thing for either.

I do hope they plan a better set of lifts to the top of the Zeil Galerie. The current lifts are as good as useless, and the "designed" method of using the escalators clearly doesn't work as shown by the struggling shops at the top. Their best bet would be a single escalator to the top as with MyZeil and that would encourage more people to go up.

I'll check out next week what their plans really are.

White?! With the kind of people I always see in the Zeilgalerie, white is surely the most impropriate colour (or non-colour) since it is way to sensible. It will turn out to be shabby and dirty after just a few months.
Maybe after the renovation it will attract another kind of people, but I doubt that the quality of visitors and customers will improve. What a waste of money!

What kind of people do you see in the zeilgallerie? Are these people more dirty than others? Would be interesting to know. Last time I have been there, the people where quite normal with clean clothes.

Don't think that has been replaced. You still see the office building in the background of that Globetrotter render. For me it look like both buildings will be next to eachother.

if you look closely you see that the office building you posted stands between the ostbahnhof and hanauer landstrasse (on grusonstrasse). the corner of hanauer landstrasse is the location of the new globetrotter building, which is already under construction. the office building was cut in half and the design was changed slightly. the globetrotter building now replaces half of the proposed building. the office buildings are named after danziger platz, but are located on grusonstrasse.




bit more news:

the triton gets a revamp. dutch ivg wants to deliver in 2012.

Yes, you are right. Don't mind really. Less office space but more retail. Actually good for the area.

That Triton renovation looks good. Even a roof terrace and a restaurant. Very nice.

yeah, I don't mind either. together with the mainsquare development and the old firestation development this area could become a new shopping cluster.



changes have been made to other projects too.

the wonderful occidens (under construction) has been enlarged significantly, which resulted in a new, less striking design

old




new



it is quite elegant, but somehow too massive (imo). well, atleast the parking/delivery door has disappeared in the new design.

My wife was telling me today that she heard from someone that there were new plans for the u-bahn expansion in Frankfurt. Has anyone heard of this? I tried searching for such plans, but nothing more than an old expansion out to Hanau which has been languishing for years.

the only u-bahn expansion, which is currently going on is the U8/U9 line in the north of the city (riedberg). the other u-bahn expansion, which is bound to happen in the foreseeable future is the U5 extension to the europaviertel area.





a friend of mine sent me pictures of a new project at taunusanlage 8, which was mentioned here a few pages ago. on tuesday there was a presentation of the final version. the height of the last office floor is around 60m. the roof height is a few meters above that mark though (around 67m). it has 18 floors, 35,000 sq m of office space. the developer (credit suisse) will also simultaneously convert a huge historic office building on weserstrasse 33 (two blocks away) into apartments (around 46, with 4,600 sq m of habitable space), as compensation for the new office space in the tower (by law developers must provide inner city living when building high rise offices).

the developer confirmed that demolition of the existing buildings will start in january 2011, which means that construction will start in spring 2011 (by law the developer must start construction after demolition right away). the date of completion is end of 2012/beginning of 2013.

a few pics (of the billboard presentation) - the initial design has been changed a bit.
