IMO even up to 500m would look appropriate for Frankfurt, but the height limit should be around there, so that no skyscrapers look higher than the Taunus mountains (highest point 880m) when seen from the south.

BTW, I was in Frankfurt again this Sunday , and I also took a pic of the T185 site (Construction progress looks quite good, you already could see lots of groundwork being done), but I didn't upload the fotos until now, but I'm gonna try to do it as fast as I can, so that I can post it here...

lowrise will be finished by end of 2010, the tower itself at the end of 2011.

500 meter would dwarf anything in Frankfurt, but I agree, it is about time for the 1st supertall here.
