Seems to be true - obviously Deutsche Bahn wants to move into highest building of Frankfurt - fortunatly the actual highest isn't vacant for the moment and within a reasonable time...

Really great news...this is quite surprising regarding the economical situation in Germany , but it definitely would be the best thing that happened to Frankfurt in the last 10 years or so.
The design could be interesting, but I think it shouldn't be too 70's international-style since it was mentioned here that it'll look like the Sears Tower.
Certainly great news for Frankfurt , a new 200+ tower would be fantastic for the skyline, even though that I think that the location would be better north instead of south of the Hauptbahnhof, but still this is fantastic.

Nobody said it'd be cancelled, am I right? Die Bahn just decided to rent a way smaller tower (that won't be big enough). So maybe it'll be cut by height (that wouldn't be bad at all in my humble opinion).
Or perhaps Vivico finds some other tenant in the next years, thou it'll be hard these days.

No, I think it is just in discussion. But there is nothing sure about it. Vivico will only "discuss" it. And the 210m were approved by the city administration. Yet, no one knows if Vivico is ready to invest in a 210m tower in that place. There are too many obstacles like having to build 160 social housing units and the renovation of a park. They could have it cheaper (without these obstacles) if they built it with the 100m given before. I think it will become a boring 100m box. Vivico is not reliable. They first killed Millennium Tower, then Skyline Plaza's Tower 1 and this will be the next to be either killed or shortened.

Well, since Vivico is envolved, the scheme is as follows. They discuss it for about one year and then there is silence and you think the tower is dead. Suddenly there are renderings on their site and construction is announced to be then within 3 to 4 weeks.... It might be a strategy!

No, it was temporarily kicked out of the Skyline Plaza... No one know if or when it will be taken into consideration again.
