And one of 106 meters


In central Paris , there is the towers of front de seine ( 19 towers of 98 meters )

Well, my parents have more than 40 apartments in several countries. And I think I would never want to live in such a building. I know people who live there and I have lived in one for one year also. I did not like it. I prefer the Art Nouveau style villas which are much more beautiful with a large garden, greenery and a huge veranda to sit in summer - it is just a great lifestyle.

I think that's the exact reason why he's saying it, right Erbse?

And why should Germans be jealous of this modern, chaotic, crap roofs we have here as well @ Baboulinet?

Renting appartments can be the main income source for many people, as it's the case for me as well.

we sold all our rental properties because the upkeep is quiet expensive here in relation to the worth (south germany), instead we bought building plots in bavaria and baden württemberg, at least a financial self-runner and a better store of value.
