the 204m figure was never official. initially it was supposed to be 185m, then the tower was redesigned and the new height was calculated to be around 204m. later, during an official presentation the 200m was announced.

Tuesday's update, part 1...

I found these on Deutsches Architektur-Forum.
Given figure on construction board was 153m... nearly as tall as the Deutsche Bank twins!
Compared to August, 20th, floorplates have gone up by one on both wings.

Tuesday's update, part 2...

That evening I took the chance for a quick visit of the Tower 185 site during a train change at the Frankfurt railway station. Expecially the panorama from the empty Vivico plot is impressive - this building will fit in nicely!

Forgive the poor quality - I took these with a mediocre digicam almost freehand.

that's what I thought, too. I haven't been too keen on the cladding so far, but the last updates show that it isn't so bad after all.

Now that it's a lot taller, do you people still think that the base is too large for this tower?

This has gone up seriously quickly! I don't think the base is too large - I think it provides a leading entrance to the building with the 'forecourt'

I think it is above 125m right now, but it can be even closer to around 150m to .

Very nice addition for the skyline of Frankfurt -splendid-!
