[QUOTE=Skyline_FFM;21374788Or aren't the old skyscrapers in NYC still the best towers? [QUOTE]

Where do you see similarities with the old skyscrapers in NYC? How goschio said it looks like straight out of Benidorm.

Read more carefully please! I said this one was old-fashioned. But old-fashioned doesn't automatically mean bad. It surely has nothing in common with the ESB or Chrysler Building. But these two are the best examples that there is still an acceptable style for building besides the glass-cladding hype! And be honest: Frankfurt should be happy with every tower above 150m! With so many cancelled and shortened projects!

Many projects have height increase? What is MANY. Kaiserkarree. But The hotel Tower in th Skyline Plaza was shortened to 150m from ofrmer 165m. Campanile,.... Hehehehe, you know! And I don't know of any other height increase. Just a shortening for Marieninsel from 250 to 220m and Millennium Tower from 375 to 350m.

ECB and FFH4 have been increased as well.

Even the Opernturm was supposed to be no higher than 100m (or so) in the beginning.

the hyatt was not shortened. it is actually even higher than the 160m (now 165m, and that's officially from hyatt). and you can't say millennium tower or marieninsel have been cut before the project actually goes ahead. we don't know yet, what the final height will be. we just know the masterplan heights, which in the past have been useless because of many exceptions.

the ecb was never intended to be 200m. first it was 184m, then it was cut to 177m and then increased again to 185m (plus spire).

FFH4 was initally just one tower of 70m,
then it was increased to 100m,
then a second tower of 70m was added,
then the big tower grew to 120m and the small one to 90m,
then the big one was increased to 125 and the small one to 99.something,

and now we have 136m for the big one and still 99.something for the small one. ..

I go by tram every day very close to the place, where the building will stay, right now there is a huge area enclosed by a fence, that's all. If you want, I can take a few pictures how it's look right now.

A dixiklo is always the first stage of every skyscraper construction. Can't wait to see pictures.
