According to this newspaper article something state-of-the-art is planned for this site. To reach that, it has to be atleast as good as the neighbouring Tower 2.

Great news and yet one more residential tower. There is no end to it.

If you look at the Porsche tower in Miami that looks more like a cylinder from one of their cars... but that could of course be considered as high class I suppose. I read the article that it at least refers as much to the inside as the outside when it comes to the latest design and technology.

Great news indeed. Hopefully the desgin will have the same quality as tower 1.
But I am not sure if car elevators like in Miami are that great. Both the elevator and the private car parks consume alot of space that could be used for larger living rooms or additional bedrooms. Just dont see the appeal of it. A traditonal underground parking lot seems to be much more efficient and cost effective.

Whats the reason for all the asphalt in the picture. I feel like most airports I see are nearly all concrete.

It just looks shinier. Almost as glazingly beautiful as Struma crash barriers.

Porsche Design Tower

Little summary for the international section, after the official presentation of the project on September 1:

- Design competition is starting this month; 20 architects will take part, including 3XN, Copenhagen, Delugan Meissl Associated Architects, Vienna, MAD Architects, Beijing, Neutelings Riedijk Architecten, Rotterdam, Neil M. Denari Architects, Los Angeles and Stefano Boeri Architetti, Milan
- Results will be presented beginning of 2015
- Construction to start beginning of 2016; finish beginning of 2018
- Around 23 floors, height approx. 86m
- 150 to 200 high end apartments
- The 3200 sqm site will also contain a park with a historic water tower, which could contain a museum and gastronomy
- Up to 40000 sqm of floor space to be constructed
- "Spectacular" separate parking structure planned
- Gastronomy on the top floor possible
- Project financed by local private investors without any banking loan (!)
- Site originally intended for office use, converted into residential use - hence no affordable housing on site (as usually required)

Comment: This could be quite a fat building, if the developers want to building up to 40000 sqm of space in a 86m building (incidentally the planned Skyline Plaza Tower 2 around the corner has around 44000 sqm floor space on a 3200 sqm site - same size as the PDT - but has a height of 165m).

This is going to be a nice sight seeing this rise simultaneously with the Messeeingang Sd tower across the street.

A place holder design can be viewed in this article - obviously it has nothing to do with the final design: http://www.fnp.de/lokales/frankfurt/...art675,1012439

Thanks for your summary, HD!
That draft for the Porsche Design Tower is really neat, though. Wouldn't mind to see something like this built, adding some fresh breeze to the Europaviertel.

The actual location within the European Quarter, next to the Trade Fair (Messe Frankfurt):

If the developer wants to make a statement with this "signature" tower, it needs to be taller than anything else in this area ... 120m would be perfect.

New towers at Gateway Gardens

This should be mentioned in the international section too:

The developer of Gateway Gardens presented 8 possible designs for 4 planned towers in the area, including designs from Zaha Hadid and Coop Himmelb(l)au.

Residential tower at Riedberg

The suburban Riedberg is getting a residential tower (although the masterplan for the area initially did not include any buildings taller than 7 storeys):

Towers at Hafenpark Quartier

The developer presented a few more details about ther development of the Hafenpark Quartier on their website.

There is a masterplan showing the whole development: http://www.bl-gruppe.de/projekt/fran...-HPQgesamt.jpg

There is also a simulation of the project showing the location of the buildings (the designs are not final yet): http://www.bl-gruppe.de/projekt/fran...hafenpark2.jpg

There is also a placeholder for the office tower: http://www.bl-gruppe.de/projekt/fran...g-HPQbuero.jpg

The placeholder for the hotel shows quite a big building: http://www.bl-gruppe.de/projekt/fran...g-HPQhotel.jpg

It looks like the tower planned at the Osthafen bridge will now be a boarding house (instead of a hotel): http://www.bl-gruppe.de/projekt/fran...boarding01.jpg

HD, please stick to the habit of actually showing renders if there are some, we're a visually oriented forum.

As for the GG highrise proposals next to Fraport, I think we should show the designs here - 4 of them might get built.

If it's a choice of four, I hope 1, 4, 5 and 8 make the cut.
