sorry, but from this angle the building is simply ugly. There ares only one or two views the building looks nice. From most other views this construction is one of the most ugliest in Frankfurt. For me it is a fail and one year ago I put so much hope in this project

This building looks like it was built 40 years ago.

It's interesting to compare recent skyscrapers in different european countries. Whereas in Paris, for istance, they really are looking for extreme and sometimes weird shapes, in Frankfurt they seem to stick to the classic style. I generally like classic towers more than super extreme designs, but maybe this is becoming a little bit redundant in Frankfurt, and maybe in Rotterdam too. I think there can be a third way between Tour Phare in Paris (which i don't like) and this one. I like when they mix glass cladding with the normal one, or when they build classic-cladded towers with interesting shapes like Turning Torso in Malmo.

The highrise part is bland, boring. The lowrise part does have some merits.

Tower turned out to look great from it's entrance. From the side it feels a bit dated...

Messeturm for istance looks way more modern and elegant in the picture posted above

Reasonable tower. Frankfurt needs to step its game on attractive modern architecture. Germany has a handicap of not building very attractive modern towers.

I happen to disagree with you. I think that Frankfurt has some very beautiful buildings, a great skyline and a promising future with both modern and classical buildings.

Agreed, these feak distorted 'scrapers in other cities will become dated very soon, Frankfurt generally seems to go for quality which can only enhance the city. To quote the great Oscar Wilde: "It never pays to be too modern, you become old fashioned very quickly"

Just love that almost "neo-classical" base, no cheap and nasty gimmicks here that will date in no time at all.
There is some real shit being built throughout the world at present so it's good to welcome something of real, lasting quality - well done Frankfurt!
