Hilliams Tower is somehow the quintessential skyscraper of the 80s. When was Messeturm build?

What about this:

According to Emporis, the Messeturm was finished in 1990, but according to the architect's website, 1991.

But that means it was planned and built in the 80s... it's because I remember that I saw the project in the "Hochparterre", an architect magazine here, in the 80s.
