  • The building is 65 metres high and consists of a 17-story central tower surrounded by 5-story wings. Its ground area is 21037 m². Designed by the son of Brutalist architect Gottfried Böhm, the building is a very rare example of early 1990s Brutalism.

  • Currently the Deutsche Bahn AG is tenant of the building until 2020. After that it is planned to move with the company to a nearby new building by Aurelis. It is being converted into an office building. The marketing for finding new tenants under the name RAW Frankfurt relies heavily on descriptions of the “iconic Brutalism” of the building as a unique selling point.
