Great news, should be a perfect addition to the skyline! + It's good that the old police headquarters will be refurbished.

Very nice! It reminds me a bit of the "Atlas Tower" which was planned for Berlin

well i just slightly modified the top. i guess something like this would could be done at one-tenth of a percent of the overall costs. unfortunately even good modern architects are so afraid of adding ornaments.

let's not forget, it's just a preliminary design for marketing purposes. the actual tower might look completely different.



more info from the FAZ (german): http://www.faz.net/artikel/C30214/fr...-30494490.html



il fenomeno, if you have too much time on your hands...how about adding massing models of the matthäuskirche-tower, tower 1, güterplatz-tower and maybe even t350?

another new residential highrise in the europaviertel area

according to various sources (fnp, immobilienzeitung, etc.) the developer nassauische heimstätte is planning a new residential tower right next to the central park at the europaviertel area.

the tower will have a similar size to other recently proposed residential towers in the area - around 18 floors.
this is the third such building announced within a few weeks - the second such project in the europaviertel area.

according to another source a fourth such project will be announced soon. the towers are all in the 18-20 floors range. hopefully all these projects will add to the acceptance of residential highrise living and lead to more and taller residential projects in the city.

great news, too bad that all highrises are limited to 60m in height
I hope one or two are built a little bit higher to get more variety.

Looks good. Some real improvements are going to be made in Frankfurt over the next couple of years. Drab postwar architecture is being replaced with classier modern architecture.

The residential high rise in the Europaviertel looks really good. I really Like the trend towards more classy and residental buildings. Not that I do not like office buildings but I think that Frankfurt needs more residental buildings in the city centre.

Wow, what a surprise. Really like this tower.

So compiling all the recent news, there will be 4 residential highrises going up in frankfurt in the next years.
