Quite the nice structure. I am especially a fan of the separately-clad exterior parallelogram that doesn't, ironically, parallel the square frame of the building. A good-sized building for a German city not rich in tall structures.

there were a few projects in the past, but they all seem to be on hold oder canceled, like unicom tower (about 65m)

so seeing something in construction is great for bremen.

it will be the tallest office building in the city, only the chruch ist higher (and television tower etc.)..

when it's finished, there will be a great light show at night, they hired a light designer to create a nice atmosphere at night, but that is surprise

It reminds me of the ArenA stop in Amsterdam, minus the stadium and plus a waterfront

we're only a few more weeks away of reaching the complete structual height of the building, they're currently building the last floor (22th). on the top there will be a roof-deck surrounded by the glass facade. and finally the elevator asset needs to be installed.

very sad the see it not growing anymore, this buidling needs to be higher..

anyway we will have a nice new modern and highest office buidling in town.

you can see some new construction pics on the site of structurae:

You're not the only guy. I watched the video. I like trying to figure out what they're talking about without being able to understand Deutsch. I understand a word here and there though.

This is going to be a sharp looking project when finished.

Tschuß!
