The con­struc­tion site ‘26 North’ is the last unplanned con­struc­tion site in Frank­furt‘s Euro­pavier­tel, where the City of Frank­furt has held out the pro­spect of a sky­scraper with res­id­en­tial usage. To ensure the qual­ity of urban devel­op­ment, an archi­tec­tural com­pet­i­tion in accord­ance with the Guidelines for Plan­ning Com­pet­i­tions (RPW 2013) was car­ried out in coordin­a­tion with the Plan­ning Depart­ment of the City of Frank­furt am Main and the Asso­ci­ation of Archi­tects and Urban Plan­ners of the German State of Hesse.
