the tower has been slightly redesigned, most notably the color of the tower has been changed a bit.
NEW RENDER CAN BE FOUND HERE
according to uninformal sources at daf, the actual planned height for the tower is 203,85m.

this is nothing but a tall filler. let's hope it will look better than on the rendering.

I like the new color. It looks warmer and friendlier now. It's sandstone beige btw, not egg yellow.

Really compliments the OpernTurm and adds a colorful accent to the Messeviertel.
And it's better silhouetted against Castor & Pollux now.

What are you people whining about? It won't have that fakey colour in real life, you know that.

Mckler is a really awful architect. This thing looks like the Opernturm with a glass cylinder in the middle. Seriously ! It's nearly the same building.
Like I said, he can't design anything at all.

at the risk of biased and overreacting local patriortistic answers (even for me as a german) ... what is so special about this building, the overacted euphoria is beyond my understanding.

i mean, the building looks "ok" but somehow hardly worth mentioning, or did i miss one or two special points about this building?

time to imbibe the whole thread erbse, and don't forget to enable your "wow-great- great addition to frankfurts skyline- great tower- counter.

so yes, you might have missed something.

if you look at the facade samples you can see that this colour is exactly what we get.


@ craperskys:
I don't think there's an euphoria here about this building, although most people seem to be positive about it. personally I like it less and less, the more I see of it. the architect, mckler, seems to have good connections. I can't think of any other reason, why he is chosen to design a tower in frankfurt over and over again. this tower is as mediocre as it gets. but that's ok - it's going to add density. that's what really counts - atleast for me.

Well, at first this is going to be Germany's 4th biggest skyscraper, which definitely makes it worth mentioning - at least in a skyscraperforum.

I agree that the design isn't that special, but it's OK, plain and simple. I like the new colour.

It will add more density to the evolving Messe-Skyline and finally with its simple design it won't steal the show of the upcoming Millenium Tower!

Argh, everything has to be explained a thousand times on this forum. My point was that it won't look like a cheap-ass computer game from the 90s in real life.

I think the cladding looks good on the rendering.
Now "everybody" is complaining about the cladding and when the tower will be finished they will all say: "Oh...it is not that bad as I thought!", like many times before.
(Sorry for my english...I have a hangover.)

Thank you for all the regular updates, derUlukai!


Btw: The Tower 185 got another redesign! It looks really fashionable now.

They changed the color of the tower from cold-metallic to pleasing-sandstone-beige. And they improved the glass top, too.
I love it. Here you go:










The base building is also redesigned

In my humble opinion a Trump Tower-style spire could work well on it.
