At the intersection of Neue Mainzer Strasse and Junghofstrasse, a new skyscraper is to be built. The plans for the skyscraper are from the past and originated in the year 2001. The architectural design included an approximately 197 meters (646 feet) tall office building designed by KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten (at the time known as KSP Engel und Zimmermann, today KSP Engel). In 2001, the Frankfurt based architectural office took first place in the competition sponsored by Frankfurter Sparkasse and Württembergische Hypothekenbank AG.

The planned tower by the KSP Engel architectural office has around 52 storeys and approximately 95,000 square meters (1,022,571 square feet) of gross floor area. With its transparent facade, the building will form a counterpoint to the adjacent twin towers of Deutsche Bank.

In mid-2018, the property was sold by Frankfurter Sparkasse 1822 to the Hessische Landesbank (Helaba), which had also built the nearby MAIN TOWER. The project is being implemented by Helaba as client and project developer. The Helaba subsidiary OFB Projektentwicklung provides support in project management, while all construction activities will be provided by Ed. Züblin AG.

Alternative working titles for the skyscraper are Helaba Tower, Neue Mainzer Strasse 57-59, and Veritas. In the 1998 high-rise development plan, the Central Business Tower was known as Frankfurter Sparkasse 1822 and Württemberger Hypothekenbank.
