So what, any news of the MainTor? Would be glad to hear anything, since we've overlapped the Expo Real (investment/projects fair in Munich) it seems there's nothin happening... Has it even been substituted there?

yes, there have been great models of the project on display. I believe there are also some photos of this somewhere here.

the project could be split into 3 smaller towers though ...

I wouldn't really mind if the split the project into 3 smaller towers. Would create a nice transition zone toward the skyline. I am personally more concerned about the urban environment in that area than getting another 150m tower.

(more or less) good news: project is APPROVED now, but the height of the tower has been cut down to about 100meter, but there was added another 60meter tower, so there will be 2of them. construction starts end of next year, completion until 2013.

I like the new solution better. One 100m tower and two 60m towers will look much better in the skyline than as single 150m. Especially because the site is so close to the river and old town. And construction start is now definitely in 2008.

yes, this is not that bad, especially for the view from the main bridges (east), that there will be another stepping on the left side of the view then.

edit: The thread title needs to be changed then:

FRANKFURT | MainTor | 100m | 60m | 60m | App

i need those drugs u always take before posting here
if u compare winx to the ecb tower u see that height has been reduced to about 100meters. also the smaller towers have more or less the same height as swiss national building, that is 57meters high..

could be worse, but i would have preferred a 170meter tower at this place..
