Not yet. One tower on the Metzler site is still missing.

Frankfurt completely owns!
It truly deserves to be a major European tourist attraction!
PERFEKTION!

Unfortunately not quite so. Although Frankfurt is among the top three skylines of the european union, it is still only comparable to an average american "big city" in terms of skyscraper might. Even now after the latest project, density is far from optimal. On the plus side counts that Frankfurt, among its towers, has some that are of exquisite quality.

Off course, Frankfurt will never reach the might of NY (also because NY itself undergoes a massive further-development, with several supertalls up the pipeline, etc).

What would help Frankfurts skyline the most, not only in terms of quantity, but also in terms of aesthetic quality, would be if the Taunusanlage was completed with highrises on both its east and its west side. After Marieninsel and SwissCredit are now planned as new towers, only 4-5 more towers would be required for that end to be met.

Since cities worldwide show an exponential development on the highrise front, Frankfurt will need a steady flow of new projects just to avoid being left behind. Within 10-15 years, it will also need a realistic perspective to a supertall of >400m. It would be good if it was not to be the terribly boring "Millennium tower".

i guess skyline.fans post was pure sudden happiness or pride.

of course you can't compare it to NY but for a less than 1 Million city it's quite a lot.

There will be a lot more projects in this decade. just like Winx,Henninger,New Police HQ Site, maybe Tower 1 at skyline plaza,etc.

Millenium Tower is still not dead and being replanned steticly. I am also not sure if it would do good to the nice skyline picture.

a small fire occured on top of the tower last friday caused by a cable of the air conditioning system

Fortunately nothing really bad happened.

Thus we got some update pics from the top.
