I was just reading about sydney having problems with overshadowing issues. I guess frankfurt is not the only city with this problem.

all in all I don't see bad news there - it doesn't effect any of the upcoming projects. and there are enough for the next years to come - who cares about a 200m tower for dz bank, that might or might have not come ...
campanile under 100m ...that's fine. to be honest, a 160m or 200m+ tower would look stupid there ... there are no other highrises there.

I can live with a 200m marieninsel too (interesting, that plans to demolish T11 were abandoned - marieninsel will now be built next to it)

allianz ... honestly, I don't know where they wanted to squeeze in a 170m tall tower

the only thing I really regret is, that they cut the residential project near eschenheimer tor from 2 towers to 1 (the third tower is not part of the project, it is a 100m office tower across the street, right next to palaisquartier). and only because a second tower might have blocked views of the skylight residential tower next door

So many proposals for Frankfurt....So few being built.

By the way, why is Germany's economy growing so slowly??? According to the CIA, growth is 2.6% per annum.

slowly? that's relative. it's the fastest in europe at the moment (if you exclude emerging markets like russia or some eastern european countries) - the economy is booming. germany is a mature economy. it can't grow as fast as emerging markets in asia or eastern europe.

and frankfurt too - by the end of the year frankfurt will have more big towers u/c than ever before ...

Germany isn't the fastest groing in Europe. Sweden, Norway, Finland, Spain,and the Netherlands are all outpacing it.

And mature economy's CAN grow as fast as emerging ones, see SINGAPORE and HONG KONG.

uh no! check the latest statistics for Q1 in 2008 - germany is fastest growing, it's even much faster than the US

spain for example had only 0.3 % growth in the first quarter ... check your figures, before saying something



and for god's sake, how can you compare economies of city states to large area states?

source: eurostat

germany's economy grew 1.53% in Q1 of 2008 - the anualized rate is 6.3% - that's 10 times more than the US, 5 times that of spain, more than 3 times that of the UK and even twice more than czech republic.


but who cares anyway. I just wanted to tell you that your assumption was based on wrong (old) figures. germany's having a boom right now. hence the high growth figures ... no one really expected that, not even the germans themselves.

edit: if you're interested in more info on that, check euroscrapers. there are numerous threads about european economy.

Wow, that is great news. Will be a nice cluster at the Europaviertel.

Germany need a stronger banking sector for more highrises! Let capitalism work and all will be fine!

there are enough anchor tenants for many highrise buildings. what germany needs is more highrise friendly politicians and administrations. what's the point if there are companies willing to build big skyscraper, but won't get a permission because of shadow issues ... see allianz for example.
