Considering location and cladding, I'd say yes. Gallileo must indeed be a great place to watch TaunusTurm rise (if you can get there), better than Main Tower observation deck.

Here you can see the boarderline between commercial tower and appartments... they'll be really close together, almost Manhattan style.

great pic, thanks. the base looks quite massive indeed.

I really do hope, the old eurotower and the old coba tower get a major revamp after the completion of the new ecb tower. they're so terribly date, imo.

Thx!
and we shouldn't forget, it's only the first half of the base for the tower, the south-east part of the highrise has not risen yet.
I'm pretty sure that both towers you mentioned will get a major renovation after the ECB has moved into their new tower. Though i hope a possible new fassade for the old ECB Tower will be Silver too. But a little bit more modern.
Concerning the old COBA Tower, the little brown one...i also hope that after a possible renovation the tower might look pretty much the same, it's one of the last highrises built in "International Style", it would be sad to loose this style in Frankfurt completly.

I didn't understand, which is the final Project...
Some solutions are very elegant, some other...are quite "boring"...
But anyway, it's good for F.furt skyline!
