WESTHAFEN TOWER FRANKFURT/MAIN

Westhafen Tower
The 30-storey office tower is the landmark building of the new city quarter on the West Harbour. Its cylindrical form is reminiscent of Frankfurt’s historical city gate towers; its construction resembles a tower composed of square elements stacked on top of one another. The tower is built of composite steel-reinforced concrete, whereby the beams serve exclusively to carry the vertical load and the stability is provided by the steel-reinforced concrete. The reinforced concrete flat roofs rest on top of steel beams and are tensioned over 9.2 m into the building’s core. The five underground storeys are constructed as a waterproof concrete tank, the foundation slab forming the bottom, the foundations were laid using a combination of piles and plates.
