There are designs that radiate and reverberate far beyond the moment of their inception. There are structures that shape the tastes and perceptions of many generations. Global Tower is one such creation – an architectural legend that is now on the cusp of a new and exciting chapter of its history.
Global Tower in the heart of the central business district was a milestone in international high-rise architecture. This protected building is now being comprehensively refurbished in line with the business imperatives of tomorrow – and the tastes of aspirational internationaltenant companies. The result will be a vibrant hub for work and meetings, quality of life, growth, inspiration and communication.

Architects Richard Heil were tasked with the design, which is in the International Style. From 1974 to 1997, the building accommodated the headquarters of Commerzbank. It was one of the very first skyscrapers to adorn the Frankfurt skyline, and was a trailblazer in the city’s banking district. The timeless design emerged as the winner of an international competition that featured an influential entry from Mies van der Rohe. It also includes a multifunctional Global Forum that was the brainchild of Sir Norman Foster, one of the world’s most important contemporary architects.
