Great to see that construction on this tower has started, i'll probably be in Frankfurt in December, and I hope i get the chance to see the construction sight and take some pics...I wonder how far the construction progress will be by then, let's hope it's fast so that by 2011 Frankfurt will have its 5th Skyscraper over 200m....

Btw, I have to say that I liked the old design slightly better, but at least the new design comes with a height increase (though It'll only be for the central part (is that the elevator shaft btw?) judging by the new renderings).

Why did the height of the tower change from 185 metres to 204 metres. If the height changes, it won't be known as the Tower 185 anymore. The tower's name should have been changed to Tower 204. I hate this new height.

the current name is just a placeholder title for this project. i`m pretty sure it will be renamed before completion, or called pwc-tower anyway.

Yeah, but not on this site! I wish the height stayed at 185 metres and 46 floors as planned. Why'd they have to go ahead and increased the height anyway?!

Its not only the height. The new design looks also much better.

^ Agreed. I don't get Jimmyboys' point.

The design works much better with the higher glass cylinder.

yeah, the new top actually makes it a bit more individual and better proportions. the old design looked so cut off at the top.

and of course it is finally a new 200m+ after 9 years now (Main Tower, 1999).

I am really looking forward to a new 200+ meters tower. But I am still a bit sad about the old facade that was demolished,...
