yep HD, those are prebuilt beams, they will be connected on site. So the whole construction process goes much faster, it's like a gigantic Lego Highrise.
Time to do it like the Chinese, hehe

I do not think it is. It is true it isn't one of those buildings that bends, tilts or stands on its head just to make people go wow for ... 15 seconds. I think it is a classy building that fits just perfect.

It would be nice if you could explain why you think the building is so lousy (oh damn you큥e banned now)...sure it큦 not an outstanding building but don큧 forget that there are at first economic reasons to build an office tower...extraordinary, expensive architecture comes usually much later in the list, unless it is a company큦 headquarter...i guess Taunusturm will fit very well into the skyline and it will be constructed with high quality, as usual
Just think about T185 or Opernturm. Only glass boxes and "turning torsos" would be boring too

Thanks so much for all the updates. Probably, my favorite highrise construction in Frankfurt ever.

Can't wait. This project will change the view from my apartment quite a bit (together with the MainTor development).
