Frankfurt Travel Tip:
Eurotower (Frankfurt am Main)
Eurotower (Frankfurt am Main)
Eurotower is a 40-storey, 148 m (486 ft) skyscraper in the Innenstadt district of Frankfurt, Germany. The building serves as the seat of the European Central Bank (ECB) which occupies most of its 78,000 m2 (840,000 sq ft) of office space.
The tower was designed by architect Richard Heil and was built between 1971 and 1977. The first main tenant was the Bank für Gemeinwirtschaft. The building was later used by the European Monetary Institute which was the forerunner of the European Central Bank that was established in 1998.
The building is located at Willy-Brandt-Platz in Frankfurts central business district, the Bankenviertel, vis-à-vis to the Opern- und Schauspielhaus Frankfurt. There is a Euro Information Center of the ECB on the first floor open to the public and a club/restaurant called Living XXL in the basement. Right next to the building is an underground U-Bahn station and an aboveground tram station.
The personnel of the ECB are also distributed to two other skyscrapers in the Bankenviertel, the Eurotheum and Neue Mainzer Straße 32-36, because of limited space in the Eurotower. The ECB is currently building new headquarters in the eastern part of Frankfurt to bring together all personnel in one place. Construction of the new tower started in 2008 with a completion date for 2014.
