At the Europa-Allee, an office high-rise named DB Tower will rise on the lot number 42c East (“42c Ost”). The location is centrally located on the north side of Europa-Allee and borders the exhibition grounds to the south. Construction started in the 3rd quarter of 2018 and will be completed in 2020. The architecture comes from the schmidtploecker planning company.
Deutsche Bahn is renting the high-rise building on plot 42c East, as well as the neighbouring office building, ‘DB Brick’ (formerly called ‘The Brick’), which has also been proposed. In total, Deutsche Bahn will lease 50,000 square meters of space here. This is the largest project development of Aurelis Real Estate so far. Aurelis Real Estate is a former subsidiary of Deutsche Bahn.
Status March 26, 2018: The winner of the design competition for the DB Tower of the Deutsche Bahn AG in the European Quarter has been selected: After the building follows a design by schmidtploecker architects, Aldinger architects from Stuttgart will now provide the design of the facade (as pictured at the top of the page).
