With a height of 170 meters, the tower is a very impressive and characteristic feature of Frankfurt´s skyline. An elegant seven-storey perimeter block development below the tower faces towards the historical opera. Vertical notches separate the high-rise building into four slim towers that are united by a bridge on top of the building. The gaps between the towers are glazed along their entire height and structured by the individual levels. Light is reflected to the outside and illuminates the natural stone surface. The addition of the individual levels creates a light gap that is visible from a long distance.
