Building in Munich/Was für ein Gebäude entsteht hier in München?

Does anyone know what this building with the golden pustule on top is going to be? It is going up next to the Arena in Munich, so I presume it has something to do with the World Cup (Fußball WM 2006 – there, I said it, now at least a German court has permitted it.):

LATER NOTE: I know a commenter has already told me what this is, but I haven’t added that here. Now (April 2009), I gather it is a Faulturm (digester tower or digestion tower). Here’s one in Fürth.

Meanwhile, something else to do with the World Cup:

This will be recognized in Britain as a Müller corner, although I don’t know if they have a Corner of the Month there.

  1. I don’t know. Do you recognize it? There is one over in that direction, but further away, and as far as I can tell it is one with a striking minaret and a broader dome.
    It would be nice to have a collection of roundish buildings around the Arena, though.
