Looks like an awesome area to me.
The Millennium Tower would be the icing on the cake here.

2008 is a splendid year for Frankfurt.

Let's just hope those commies in the fresh Hessian parliament don't screw everything up now.

I wanna see something like this rising at the Main!

When did the Millenium tower become approved? Is this for real? With the Millenium tower the Frankfurt skyline would be more or less unattainable on an European scale.*knock on wood*

it`s approved since 1999 or so, but unfortunately they havent found an anchor tenant yet... but at least it seems that vivico is marketing this project, and with their success in uec2 and t185 i see some chances for the millenium tower in the long run..

once the grand hyatt, the T185 and the UEC tower 1 are built vivico might think of new projects - maybe then the time for the millennium tower will come. after all, it is being marketed. but 200,000 sq m is a lot of space ...

Old town of Frankfurt - Reconstruction project

Well, I've mentioned this in another thread. But it rather belongs here.
Should I open a new thread for this one? Or could anyone else do it? The project kinda deserves it.

At first, let's keep in mind how Frankfurt's old town looked before the bombing raids of WW2 (around 1940):


The intended area for the reconstructions is the quarter left of the cathedral (in the middle, stretching into the direction of the market place)


Comparison - after heavy British bombing 1943/44:



And how it looks today - the big ugly brutalist crap to the left of the cathedral will be demolished (the "Technisches Rathaus" - 'technical city hall'). Then it'll be replaced by some reconstructions of historically worthful timbered houses.



More information & links (from a picture thread):

If anybody wants to know (and see) something more about the old town and other historical parts of Frankfurt - A quite good page I reckon:
AltFrankfurt.com - The Golden Book


Currently there's a huge concrete monster (Technisches Rathaus of the 80s) holding its place on the ground of the planned old town reconstruction. It'll be demolished this year or 2009, and the Altstadt's going to be build around 2010 then.

While I'm at it: You can find several 3D views of Frankfurts historical old town here.
You can see buildings of the intended area as well as still existing and other ones there. Pretty good stuff.

And there's also a (German) forum, where you could follow the further development of the project and find many pictures as well: APH Forum - Reconstructions and classical architecture in Germany


Hope I could spark a bit interest in the whole development

What a f*cking loss of not only life but architecture.

How very sad.

this was vengeance bombing, truely done war crimes. you should check what happened to Dresden if you are already shocked about these pictures.

even today you can see the dust of the smoke at the church tower. deep black at some spots.

I'm saddened by the loss of lives and the once beautiful city as well, but vengeance bombing? Please, be realistic here. Germany was still at war with the world. It hadn't surrounded. No, it's not vengeance bombing.

Anyway, this isn't a place for political discussions.

Victors have never committed and will never commit war crimes.
