for me... in someway, winx looks higher than 100m on this render. compared avec westendduo, but compared avec les highrises surrounding it, it's right... i don't know why, but when i think of westendduo, it's not that high like winx on this render... but i could be wrong, so: i like it!! no matter if 100 or 150. so, there is 1 tower added, that's ok, compromis! frankfurt needs some midhigh-gapfillers, so it's great!

I like the new design for Degussa, nothing revolutionary but given the perfect location the apartments, restaurants and offices will be sold within days once they are on the market. The development is a huge improvement. Currently, the area around Degussa is one of Frankfurt's ugliest neighborhoods (meaning grey, no street life) and mostly not even open to the public, typical 50's and 60's post-war mediocrity.

I'm especially looking forward to the new "gate" situation when approaching the financial district from Sachsenhausen.

The old Degussa AG will be reconstructed as part of the development. Plans to demolish the skyscraper were abandoned.

guys, for gods sake - he is right! the old degussa tower will be redeveloped - read the articles again. it doesnt mean the project is not going ahead!!

all the other buildings will be replaced. so this project has 4 towers (100m, 60m, 60m and 48m <--- the last one is the old degussa tower)

the fact is brand new btw ...

Edit: MainTor won't get built in this way! The designs shown above just have been alternatives.

interesting. I think the best winx-tower (tower no.1) design (KSP architects) won the competition. I wonder how tall it will be though. I don't understand the policy of giving heights of buildings without counting the plant floors. looking at the first rendering it looks like it's taller than the old commerzbank tower, which itself is 109m.

as much as I'm starting to dislike maeckler (the architect that seems to design every second project in frankfurt nowadays), I quite like this maintor tower (tower no.2) design. IMO it's much better than KSP's design for this tower.

it's a shame there was no design competition for tower no.3 (porta). I like the KSP design, but it would have been interesting to see what other architects come up with.

Are you talking about this one?

Wasn't there some bigger / more recent rendering, btw?

yes, this one.


about bob's pics - to avoid confusion: this is getting built, not this, and this instead of this, and this instead of this.
