update of yesterday

nice to see that the facade has been changed.The older design was strange and not really their architecture language i think, i know because Mr. Kleine-Kraneburg was my professor. I wondered why they designed it that way. great news.Now some of my pics :

construction of the small facade piece

Nice design, but I don't like the top for some reason. But it fits in the skyline for sure!

I really like the new design with the smaller residential tower having those setbacks. Neat reminder of Art Deco highrises. Frankfurt's great at building classical resemblances.


By the by, the big tower also got some changes during the re-design. The semibasement is now covered with a stone facade up to some floors and we also got some colonnades. Great move there, Tishman Speyer! This project is becoming better and better. What a win.

I visited the construction site this morning and took some pictures. For the most part groundwork going on right now:





In the northernmost corner first foundation piles are starting to show:



The facade sample looks like this now:
