Development Areas for High-Rise Buildings
As a rule, major construction projects, such as high-rise buildings, are being built in these locations in Frankfurt or are planned for the following development areas:
Banking District (CBD)
In the Banking District (Bankenviertel), the concentration of tall buildings in the smallest space is at its highest anywhere in Germany. At this location, several additional skyscrapers have been proposed which will result in increased density in the coming years. The financial district skyline is known from the media.
In the European District (Europaviertel), most projects from recent years have been built having five to eight floors. In the coming years, a number of residential towers in particular with up to 25 floors will be built here. By 2025, numerous skyscrapers between 100 and 190 meters high will be constructed here.
The Gateway Gardens development area is located directly at Frankfurt Airport. Several office buildings and hotel buildings with up to 20 floors are being built here.
The Kaiserlei is originally a purely commercial area in the east right on the city limits of Frankfurt and Offenbach. Due to modernization and new construction, hotel buildings and residential buildings are currently being built.
The Lyon Quarter is an area in the south of Frankfurt that was originally primarily used as a commercial area. Residential buildings have also been built here since 2012. The area is characterized by towers between 10 and 25 storeys.
Eschborn Business Area
The southern commercial area (Gewerbegebiet Süd), primarily called the Eschborn Business Area (Wirtschaftszentrum Eschborn), is located on the A 648 motorway. In recent decades, office buildings up to 20 storeys high have been built here.
These development areas are officially not a city district of Frankfurt or belong administratively to a directly adjacent suburb.
