About the Tower

Built in 1999 by architects Schweger and Partner, the Main Tower features two buildings—a rectangular office block and a cylindrical communications tower topped with a 131-foot-high (40-meter-high) transmitter. Behind the tower’s glittering blue glass facade are the offices of Landesbank of Hesse and Thuringia, Merrill Lynch, and other multinational companies.
