I'd also like to see Fraspa and Kaiserkaree, which both may start this year, but I don't see Marieninsel going anywhere as a main tenant of such size will be extremely hard to find unless Deutsche Bahn decides to move downtown instead of building close to the Messe or a big auditing company like PriceWaterHouseCoopers decides to move away from the dull outskirts (also highly unlikely).

Concerning Degussa & WinX, that's a real crown jewel for Frankfurt. Up until know I was kind of cautious on the new economic upswing in Germany but this is definitely a major sign for a turnaround that will help new construction big time. The best news of course is that Degussa will be the main tenant, speeding up the entire process until construction considerably.

Very nice project for Frankfurt. The desing is very good but it can be better. Hope to see more projects soon.

The good news rumor on Fraspa is spreading fast. It seems justified given the current "Wirtschaftsaufschwung" we're seeing in Germany. The many previously risk-averse investors are finally coming back to the marketplace and spending again.

The Fraspa tower would be too awesome.
190m if I am not wrong.

I hope we can open a new thread about this tower with concrete news soon

back to the WinX:

The green party sucks (considering city development)!

a locla newspaper wrote today that the head of the green party, Olaf Cunitz, said that so called planning experts should work on possible alternatives considering this project before the city will finally approve it. He also said that a smaller tower or even a decline could be possible.

let's hope that it won't be like that!

It should, however, stop playing the party pooper for any kind of fast, positive city development. It has already effectively stopped the UEC and is dragging its feet on the airport enlargement, now it is once more the "ball and chain" for the speedy development of a vital public space in the city.

About german politics...

I thought that the CDU/CSU-fraction got the "Mehrheit" in Frankfurt - does it matter what the green party thinks?
