Meixner Schlüter Wendt architects together with B+G won the architectural competition for a new residential high-rise building in the new ‘Europaviertel’ near Messe Frankfurt. The 60 m high residential tower with 19 storeys at its highest point this 180-apartment complex development sits on a perimeter site with a series of stepped roof terraces that lets the building roofline step down to match the height of the surrounding buildings. The building façade is a combination of brickwork and plaster finishes.

The structure was built using a skeleton construction assuring a high flexibility of the footprint. The vertical and lateral load-bearing structure of this reinforced concrete tower consists of a combination of concrete flat slabs, columns and concrete core walls. The foundation of the building with a parking garage basement is a reinforced concrete mat slab.
