Thanks to Brexit, Frankfurt will have an even harder raging boom boner soon.
It will be a magnet for many institutes, banks and companies located in London/UK before.

Danke Brits!

well I guess we can at least hope. So far I've only heard news of companies wanting to relocate to Dublin (which is more english speaking) or Paris (which is an actual city). I just hope that all these banks relocating to Paris won't put Frankfurt into 2nd place of continental european banking centers.

^Deutsche Bank alone will relocate thousand of jobs to Frankfurt, so far Morgan Stanley and JP Morgan seem to be quite interested in Frankfurt.

What makes you think Frankfurt is not an actually city?

FRANKFURT | Projects & Construction

If Germany and Frankfurt plays its hand well I imagine that we are going to read a lot about future skyscrapers in FFM. Congrats and I am really looking forward. Someone loss is someone else's gain I suppose. I do not really see how Paris could take the role as the financial center of Europe.

He means megacity, megapolis, metropolis, city of million people.

Frankfurt has a actual population of 717,000 inhabitants.

Depending on what's included, the immediate agglomeration of Frankfurt has 2-2.5 million people. The Regional Authority includes 2.2 million folks. If adjoining communities are incorporated (which makes a lot of sense), Frankfurt actually is a city of millions already.

That project is called Kornmarkt Arkaden and yeah, parts of the Bundesrechnungshof are kept.
It's a compromise with the Denkmalschutz (preservation authority), who urged to keep and integrate this central part of the building... Obviously it's the best we could've hoped for at this location.

Though frankly I'd have preferred this tower-like, more accentuated and classical design by Stefan Forster:

Amusing and nice to see the facade retention of a post-war building. Usually it's the opposite way around.

We're getting sort of used to that in Germany. Probably the appreciation for mid-century/post-war architecture is the highest here throughout the world, for various reasons. Many 1950s and 60s buildings are landmark-protected already.

girl I'm sorry to break that to you, but Frankfurt will never become London nor be nearly as globally important as London is today. Banks haven't even announced anything official about relocating and stuff anyway, it was just some speculations under the Brexit panic period. Y'all European opportunists need to chill and not malevolently try to become London! haha sorry for all the rage by the way.. love to all
