First Tenant Moving In

even though the tower has not reached the final height, this week first tenants are already moving in: employees of pricewaterhouse coopers are moving into their new offices in the base of T185 and a couple of floors of the tower itself. more employees will move in once the tower is completed.

This is very high quality building, would be nice to have some kind of interesting roof to finish it off. Better, I have to say, than most of London's tall buildings which are in the main very boring and ordinary (with a few exceptions of course) and not of very good qualilty.

The Vivico webcam shows that both wings have gone up 2 stories in the last 2 weeks - Im think the East wing has topped out!

So now the central core should raise up further some 10 meters... there have been different designs of the top: some where the core ends level with the wings (perhaps these gave Tower 185 its name as 185m only). Others show a two-step top of the core part, and these look the tallest. But the renders on the vivico-site must be the final ones, I guess. They show a roof part in one step - I hope this will make the 200m limit and not end with about 195m only...

PWC had buildings at Mertonviertel (for a HUGE aerial of the quarter click here) - an office park in the north of the city. They will probably stay empty for a while. Most companies don't want suburban offices anymore, they return to the city center.

Here's the main PWC building


(The same office park will also lose another high profile tenant - KPMG - who is moving their headquarters to The Squaire.)

Ah. They're creating some sort of ghost city. According to the image it looks very small and you'd expect that the company would move into a smaller building but I see that the terrain is huge and has a lot of buildings on it.

Well not quite a ghost town, but the vacancy rate will increase significantly.The PWC building is indeed much bigger, than what what you see in that photo - there are several wings behind that. PWC is/was also located in other buildings like that (see aerial: the building with the 5 cylindrical parts). 2,400 PWC employees are leaving the area and are moving to T185. I don't know how many people are moving for KPMG, but it is expected, that the office park will have a vacancy rate of 30%, when PWC and KPMG move to new locations in the city (until now it had a a very low vacancy rate of under 4%).

Frankfurt is a beautiful city with a promising skyline. Places and buildings are great.

I think cameronpaul has a good point. London's towers are either boring, even ugly, or they are completely over the top and damage Londons historical skyline imho.
Most of Frankfurts towers are actually of a very classy, timeless design.

@ migl
London and Frankfurt are both financial centres and both feature a skyline with highrises/skyscrapers.

I don't like, that the glass core will rise above the rest of the building. Otherwise I like the T 185.

Tower 185 has got the top slab on both wings, with the core reaching higher. But it's not topped out IMO.

It's from Deutsches Architektur Forum.
On this page you'll find also some nice shots down from the tower's top.

Great tower!
I have the same opinion of germantower. They need a big tower to make the difference.

Thanks for the updates, Ulukai!

Another classy tower for Frankfurt (after the Opernturm), especially the base construction with its sandstone facade and the atrium has style.
These are good years for the city, maybe not in quantity, but in quality.

Well, also in quantity:
PwC-Tower (200m)
ECB-Tower (187m)
Operntower (170m)
Palais Quartier Tower I (136m)
Palais Quartier Tower II (100m)

I can't remember a period of 5 years with more building activity in Frankfurt...
