Cool video indeed but I wonder how they came up with the GDP numbers. Are they really correct? According to the video Frankfurt's' GDP is as big as Berlin and Munich combined, and I never though Munich would be larger than Hamburg in absolute numbers.

According to this, it's not.

Its because of the companies headquartered in that metro. I understand that Frankfurt is a big center for banks and other large businesses so its GDP would include the revenue of those companies.

According to this list, it is larger than Munich and Berlin but by that much.

I see and thanks. That table shows a slightly different picture. I suppose it is lies, damned lies, and statistics...

I like it, sure it's not that tall, but it will complement the Taunusturm very well.

The design is ok, but 20-30m more would be good

Indeed. Looks like a smaller version of Opernturm...and I ******* love Opernturm!

Where will it be located? I can only figure out the house number "8", but not the street name.
EDIT: Nevermind, I found out myself. It's Taunusanlage 8.

Agree with previous. Looks really good but add another 30 meters and it will become great.

I hope we see this project, which has a similar architectural style realized in the near future - otherwise it would be really appreciated, if they add some 30-40 meters to the Credit Suisse Tower.

Any progress for the demolition of the Henninger Tower?

A current skyline shot for once here.

You can see the fantastic Taunusturm in the center filling a prominent gap in the skyline. Finally!
To the left of the main cluster, several towers are rising soon and extend the skyline this way (MainTor project).
