you're right. thanks for the pic.

I guess it's good they divided this project into two phases. I wonder how the second phase is going to look like. up to three tallish buildings are possible there.



I also forgot some news regarding a riverside development near the Westhafen. It looks like plans for several residential buildings near the Sommerhoff Park emerged. These plans include three residential midrises.

2011 will be a fantastic year for project developments in Frankfurt. So much new stuff.

There is definitely a lot coming up. Too bad the tallest new project is only 160m tall though (ignoring the 185m ECB tower, which will rise in to the sky this year and the 200m T185 tower, which has almost topped out).

Another important project is the Goetheplaza development and the renovation of T11 tower. It is also going to be very interesting to see what happens with the Polizeipraesidium site - it seems the plans for a new tower are coming a step closer to realisation.

Construction of new luxury hotel at the Opernplatz will start in 2011. It will replace some crap buildings from the 50s.

Most probably the hotel will be occupied by Mandarin Oriental.

Part of the complex will be residential. Probably that separate building at the left.

I was in Frankfurt last week, and I really enjoyed the city (even if it was incredibly cold ). I'd just like to know if there are projects of reconstruction of old buildings or (even better) of old quarters of the city, as it existes in other German cities?

yes. look at the demolition area in the foreground, in front of the dome.
image hosted on flickr



parts of the old town will be reconstructed, including buildings like these.

the area plan:


http://stadtplanungsamt-frankfurt.de

the area will be a mix though of genuine reconstructions and "historicized" new buildings, which might look as these mediocre examples.


http://www.baunetz.de


http://www.fr-online.de


however, the area wont reach the historic class it once had before la guerre:

When you take a look at one of the pictures above you can see that the long building is already standing.

It is a pitty that they do not do a full reconstruction a'la Dreseden but has to have this "modern" touch.

The situation in Dresden was quite more receptive to large-scale reconstruction than in Frankfurt.

^ Not true, rather on the contrary. Dresdeners had to fight really hard for single reconstructions and against modernist monsters destroying the ensemble of the Neumarkt. The atmosphere in Frankfurt is much more compromised, reconstruction-friendly and open to discussions at the moment. This might change once everything starts, but when looking at the plans, really a lot seems possible for Frankfurt.


Dresden ain't a full reconstruction either, on the contrary, there are loads of modern buildings sprinkled in between.

The pro-side of Frankfurt's reconstruction might be, that those investors who are willing to reconstruct a building that isn't planned as a reco are preferred to those who want to build modern. Besides, there is a huge competition of many architect's offices intending to find as many possible solutions for this area as possible.
We might get an almost full reconstruction of this Frankfurt old town part, if the Gods of fine taste want it like that.
