The future of Frankfurt's skyline: Exhibition on the 2024 High-Rise Development Plan provides new insights

Frankfurt's skyline significantly impacts the image of the Main metropolis and will continue to be developed. An exhibition dedicated to the topic will provide detailed insights to the public for around two weeks. It can be viewed in the atrium of the City Planning Department from June 19th until July 5th, 2024.

In April 2024, the City of Frankfurt/Main adopted its new High-Rise Development Plan (HEP2024), defining the qualitative framework conditions for 14 new high-rise locations. These high-rise locations are intended to strengthen Frankfurt's city centre around the banking district and the western bank of the Main River south of the main train station, as well as contributing to the further development of the area around the European Central Bank.

Given the intention to create more mixed-use, urban, and liveable neighbourhoods, a stronger emphasis is put on how high-rise buildings impact their surroundings, and vice versa.
This approach is central to the HEP2024. Hence, it fosters mixed use, the integration of public space, placing community-enhancing functions at the base of the high-rise buildings, as well as improving aspects of sustainability.

The HEP2024 is based on a comprehensive concept that AS+P developed together with the City’s Department of Planning and Housing and other specialist planners (more information here). AS+P has been successfully supporting the City of Frankfurt/Main in the development and realisation of urban development concepts since the 1980s.

It is with great pleasure that AS+P also contributes to the current exhibition by supporting the city with the content and visual design. Come visit!
