Yes it is, and 45 floors at least sound reasonable at a net height of 185 meters.

Thanks for the simulation, fvgffm, just imagine what it would look like if Tower 1 or FraSpa or even both would be also built. It would bet on one of them starting by next year.

Regarding the above rendering it reminds me too much the Selmi Hochhaus after recladding (starting soon).



I would have preferred something like the twin tower solution out of the vivico master plan from 2004. Two so simular buildings so close to each other without really being in context... but let's see, on the other hand this scenario could have its appeal, I'm not too sure in the moment.

I didn't know where to put this but I've got a friend who lives in Frankfurt who has some connections in the planning group of the local authority and he says word from them is that there is about 15 towers in the pipeline that are around 300 metres tall!

Probably he meant 300 feet, then it works

We would be happy to have at least one with 300+ soon in place.

he probably meant 15 towers with up to 300m - the number is actually higher, but there is only one project that could reach the height - unless there will be a surprising new proposal, which everybody is expecting.

Frankfurt was really slowing down with (great)projects the last year, but this is amazing! Really nice to see so many plans unfolding for Frankfurt.

Well his English isn't the best so you're probably right. Anyway, it's good to see my second favourite city pumping out the proposals here!

kmuffi, please prepare (or better - rather avoid it) to write in English... It sounds merely horrible.

As for the proposed PWC-Tower: I would like to see something more fresh this time, it could improve Frankfurt's townscape a lot at this place. Of course the Frankfurt-typical 'classic' structures are considered to be more timeless, but the city needs a new impact of design in the future in order to invent itself even more modern - so I still hope for a striking innovative design, like times earlier with the crowned DZ-Bank or the Commerzbank

i hope that in FFM, there will be never such organic architecture project like that 300m tower for Paris, cheesy building near CTBA in Madrid or Kaplick library in Prague.

With Parktower and FFHV hotel tower there are actually 4 U/C. New ECB tower, PWC tower and probably the Kaiserkarree project will start within the next months, and probably also some other projects. But let's see...

The plans for recladding of the Selmi Hochhaus were unveiled mid of March this year. Preperations started about month ago and since last week they started with work. There are already some samples installed on the back side. On site there show a new rendering. Here is the previous version from April.

Maybe this is worth to start an own thread for this well known building.
