That is one classy tower, but Frankfurt desperately needs a 300+ to have more variety in their skyline.

This tower is simply magnificent. I was watching the process of building the T185 since moths, and now it looks just perfect!

I was very disappointed when I saw the first renderings, but now I really like this building, especially the entrance. The tower is simple, but it is build with high qualitiy.

Altough the tower looks quite outdated, and the yellow-ish on the tower looks filthy, these last pictures are great. I am afraid that's all though, the pictures look great, the tower remains ugly. Its tall and ugly, tugly.

Looks like a quailty tower, quite a simple design, but has a big impact

It isn't ugly. It just has an unusual shape. And it seems it's huge.

ugly is a matter of taste (or lack thereof). The pics above are simply amazing.

I love the entrance, it looks really classy and is a nice change from the massing of glass we seem to get in European towers. I hope we get something like this in London!

i personally dislike the design but on the other hand i'm glad they use stone facades instead of glass in frankfurt, at least on approximately 90% of the buildings.

Besides the Commerzbank Tower, Tower 185 is probably the only skyscraper in Frankfurt to have a floor area of 1 million square feet or more. Are there any others?
