Yes, they have increased the height to 204m. Just compare the old with the new renderings.

The T185 still remains because it also indicates the address. Coincidence. But the height went up to 204m.

This tower is going to be great.


Btw, is there any info if there will be public facilities or something like restaurants, shops etc. based in the tower or the podium building facing the street? The entrance area looks quite inviting, so that wouldn't surprise me at all.

yes, afaik the street-level floors will inhabit restaurants (maybe even shops) opened to the public.

im asking myself wheter the tower-fascade will be white like in most renders, or darkblue/black like on the entrance-render... think it would look nice in black.

It's going to be aluminium silver/white, just like the Castor & Pollux towers I guess. The dark blue appearance in the renders I linked may just be caused by the night simulation renderer.

Really nice to see cranes going up during great depression.

Can't wait to see this one rising.
