i would guess that it`s more or less topped out by now.

too bad, 10-20 meter more would`ve been so great for its impact in the skyline as can be seen on epizentrums pic.

Agreed. But this is just a moment in time. Perhaps there are rising some new and higher towers in the near future behind, left and right of the Commerzbank Tower as a focus point. In this case i can imagine the height of the Taunusturm is just perfect for the cluster.
Nevertheless, i really would have liked to see the Taunusturm at about 190 m, because of its iconic cladding and the impact on the skyline, which is even at 170 m, much bigger than i would have anticipated.

Agree. 20 more meters would have been great. But I think this discussion highlights the real need for a super tall in the bank quarter. There are some really nice towers but they need to be crowned by a super tall.

i would rather like to see one (or two ) 240-290meter tall buildings. any building considerably over 300meter high would not really fit to the existing towers imho.

The commerzbank is 299m to the top of the antenna. A 300m tower in that area wouldn't be problem i think.

It's a good quality cladding indeed.

This is a good building and filler, regardless whether it is 170 or 270 meter tall.
