As part of the development, a new high-rise tower will be built in the immediate vicinity. The northern ramp of the harbour tunnel has long been a suitable location for a tall building. When the high-rise plan of 2008 was passed, one still thought of an office high-rise. 110 meters were recommended as a possible height. This would be slightly higher than the neighbouring Commerzbank Tower, which is 93 meters high. In the meantime, however, the market has changed: heights of up to 140 meters are in conversation. This means that the residential high-rise could have about 30 floors. How high it will be will only be finalised in an architectural competition. However, the developer wants to start the 2021 project at the earliest time possible.


The office tower used by Commerzbank AG on Hafenstraße is to round off the construction project. This existing 90-meter tower is to be renovated under the title ‘Virage’ and possibly converted into a hotel or residential apartments. The rental agreement with Commerzbank AG expires at the end of 2019.

Not really. I'm just stating my honest opinion. People who can't handle any criticism and want to be closed in an echo chamber of cheerleaders, regardless of the quality of city planning, should frankly find another area of interest.

This is the design that has won. By mecanoo Architects

The architectural competition was devoted to the design of a mixed-use district between Hafenstrasse and Adam-Riese-Strasse, which is within walking distance of Frankfurt’s main train station and in which a total of approx. 55,000 square meters (180,000 square feet) of new living space is being built. Up to 600 apartments are planned here, which are spread over a 140 meter (459 feet) tall residential tower and an adjacent building (which may reach a height of up to 60 meters; or 197 feet). An approximately 1,300 square meters (4,264 square feet) day care center and 1,700 square meters (5,576 square feet) of commercial space for local supply and catering complete the district mix and create a new, attractive, urban location

In addition to Mecanoo, the Frankfurt-based architects Mäckler, HPP, Ferdinand Heide and NKBAK took part in the competition, as did the Berlin-based office Eike Becker and the Danish architect Schmidt Hammer Lassen from Copenhagen.

The realization of the new residential district, including the 140 meters (459 feet) tall residential tower, is to begin at the earliest after the completion of the corporate headquarters for DB Netze AG in late 2020 / early 2021.
