The address of Tower 185 is Friedrich-Ebert-Anlage 35-37. The building also stands on Hohenstaufenstrasse and Osloer Strasse. The banking district and the main railway station are within walking distance, and connections to public transport and the airport are outstanding. Tower 185 marks the entrance to the Europa*viertel and is located next to the Skyline Plaza, the planned shopping and events centre. The tower owes its name to its height of 185 metres (approx 606 feet). Tower 185 consists of a horse-shoe-shaped plinth building with a natural stone façade. Two multi-storey sections with an aluminium and glass façade arise from this; they surround a glazed middle section. Together they form the actual tower.
The architecture was designed by the Frankfurt architect Professor Christoph Mäckler. His design was chosen within the framework of a competitive multiple commission. The form of Mäckler’s idea stems from rematerialised modernity; it stands for both timeless elegance and the sustainable use of resources that are becoming scarce.
