The Millennium Tower, formerly also called T365 (Tower 365), is a visionary high-rise project in the Europaviertel of Frankfurt, which provided for the construction of a skyscraper with a planned height of 369 meters (1,210 feet). The client for the plans of the Millennium Tower was the EIM (Rail Real Estate Management, today CA Immo Germany).
The concept for the Millennium Tower was created in the late 1990s by the architecture firm Albert Speer & Partner as part of the high-rise development plan of the city of Frankfurt in 1998. According to the skyscraper master plan, the height of the skyscraper should have been up to 369 meters (1,210 feet) with over 200,000 square meters (2,152,782 square feet) of usable space on 97 floors. The tower was granted building permission in May 2001, but the planning has not yet been actually started since then.
The Millennium Tower is to be built at Osloer Strasse, in direct proximity to the skyscrapers Tower 185 and ONE, which were also developed by the company CA Immo. With the existing skyscrapers at this location, in particular the MesseTurm, Kastor and Pollux as well as the new high-rise buildings Grand Tower, EDEN and The Spin, a new cluster of skyscrapers is being built here.
Status October 2018: At the laying of the foundation stone of the tower ONE nearby the Millennium Tower site, the project developer CA Immo stated that a test-plan for the Millennium Tower had begun. The plans, however, would not exhaust the full amount that would be possible at this point. According to CA Immo, construction should commence once the ONE skyscraper project is completed in 2021. CA Immo justifies this with too high construction costs.
Status October 2007: At the real estate fair Cityscape in Dubai, United Arab Emirates, the Millennium Tower was presented in October 2007 as a building mass model. The height should be about 370 meters (1,124 feet), the gross floor area was given as 215,000 square meters (2,314,240 square feet). The use of the building should be 70 percent office and 30 percent residential, and it could be marketed as the European headquarters for global companies. In addition, apartments, hotels and other uses could arise here. Due to the economic crisis from 2008, the marketing ambitions were initially reduced.
Winter 2000 status: At the end of 2000, real estate tycoon Donald Trump of New York City announced that he was planning the Millennium Tower as the tallest residential tower in the world. In cooperation with Marseille-Kliniken AG, TD Trump Deutschland AG was founded. During a conversation with Petra Roth, Mayor of Frankfurt, Trump suggested that construction begin in 2002 or 2003. However, TD Trump Germany was dissolved in 2005 in disputes, lawsuits and prosecutorial investigations.
