What about the Taunusturm? Didn't they promise to modify the plans again?

I don't want this bland box to be built in the center of the Frankfurt skyline.

No, the status would be prep(aration), otherwise people might think the 160m Tower would be demolished...

Com = Internally and externally complete.

but demo is a good status too - atleast something is finally happening

Not really. Old projects that are being demolished are no news on this forum. It means that it won't be placed here in the World Development News forums because it makes other people cry you see? Demolishing a skyscraper is a shame unless it's a real ugly one.

Demo means in this forum that a building is being demolished and replaced by a nice new skyscraper! And that would be the Taunus Turm ja?

Fantastic news. According to Frankfurts local laws, construction must start soon after demolition. Its the law!!!

That's bad. Demolition probably stopped because of recession or lack of funds?

Just a matter of time. Large office space in premium locations is quite rare in Frankfurt now. And the location is pretty much the best you can find in Frankfurt.
