The Tower itself will not get a sandstone facade, it will be this weird colored aluminium...
I like aluminium but not in such colours,...

Keep spire-high-fakes out of Germany, please (Even if they look good). But we can put an Antena on it, masked as a spire.

thanks for the updates, guys.

the footprint of the tower looks tiny compared to the size of the construction site.

That church tower sure will feel small soon enough.
I don't know how german urban law considers this, but could they have protested over the tower hampering over their views?

probably not.

funny enough, the church has been in danger of being demolished for many years. the owners wanted (and still want) to sell the site. a new tower has been proposed there (around 130m). many people objected to the prospect of demolition though and now it looks like the church will remain there - and will be included somehow into the design of the potential new development there. apparently a design exists, which would use the church as an entrance to a new office tower, which would be located in the back of the church.


anyway, thanks for the update, tom.

I'm wondering why steel construction is not very common in germany? the last steel skyscraper I remember was the commerzbank.
