urban or not?

The current look of the construction site reminds me a bit on - let's say - typical architecture during the 1980ies... There is not really urban atmosphere or any kind of public place like restaurants, lounges, bars, shops etc...

New office buildings is one thing, to reach a better quality for the people staying there is the second thing. I am wondering, if they will reach an "urban city" feeling when it's finished...

What the hell are you talking about, have you ever been to Frankfurt? Can't see it get much more urban than it already is.

DIC Asset will dieses Jahr Großprojekte beginnen
Immobiliengruppe benötigt 50 Prozent Vorvermietung
Börsen-Zeitung, 19.1.2011

tl Frankfurt - Das Gewerbeimmobilienunternehmen DIC Asset AG will 2011 bei seinen beiden großen Projektentwicklungen Maintor in Frankfurt und Opera in Hamburg mit dem Bau beginnen.

"Sobald wir genügend Vorvermietungen haben, legen wir los", sagte der Vorstandsvorsitzende Ulrich Höller bei einem Pressegespräch in Frankfurt. "Ausreichend" sind für ihn mindestens 50 %.

Nachdem die Degussa das Gelände Ende des Vorjahres verlassen hat, soll mit dem Abriss der Maintor-Gebäude (neuer Name "The Riverside Financial District") im Juli 2011 begonnen werden. "Wir führen bereits intensive Gespräche mit Mietinteressenten aus der Financial Community", sagte Höller. Die dortige Villa wird in diesem Jahr umgebaut und soll in den kommenden vier Jahren, also während der Bauzeit auf dem Gelände, für kulturelle Aktivitäten zur Verfügung stehen. "Was da ...

Nice, but too much office again. Why no residential highrises there.

Well, the website says the following:

- MainTor offers a total area of ~108.000m² with a mix of office & living space, retail space and gastronomy
- the buildings will offer space for ~3.500 employees and 200 exclusive apartments


But I agree, there could be more. Why not make the MainTor Panorama fully residential? Those apartments could belong to the most desirable ones in Germany or even Europe.

the project is officially starting on august 1.
  • it will take 6 months to demolish all buildings (all but a small historical villa and the skeleton of an old office midrise, which will be redeveloped)
  • shortly after demolition starts, the first phase of the development will start: the redevelopment of a 50s office midrise (46m, 12 floors) into a new office building called Primus, which after completion will be occupied by the developer itself (DIC)
  • the next phase (starting 2012) is the construction of two more office buildings, the Panorama (64m, 16 floors) and the Porta (70m, 19 floors)
  • the residential part (200 apartments) will follow with the Patio and Palazzi buildings
  • Winx, the tallest tower, will follow in 2013
  • the date of completion for the whole project is sometime in 2015
  • 580 million euros will be invested
  • 3,500 people will live and work here
