The complex is located on a site which housed Frankfurt's central goods station until 1998. The whole area, including the former railroad tracks, has since been developed into a new housing and business area called Europaviertel. The Skyline Plaza complex borders the Frankfurt trade fair premises and the Messeturm to the north.
Shopping mall and spa
The oval-shapped building with a total of 38,000 square meters of sales floor on two levels and around 2,400 parking spaces opened on 29 August 2013. A unique attraction is a public park-like area on top of the building with a restaurant, a playground and green areas (Skyline Garden). A separate fitness and spa area, operated by MeridianSpa, opened on 1 February 2014.
Congress center Kap Europa
The congress center is used by Messe Frankfurt and offers 14 meeting rooms for up to 2,400 people. It is the only building used by Messe Frankfurt that is located outside the actual trade fair grounds. It opened in May 2014.
Office tower ONE Frankfurt
A 180 m (590 ft) office tower, designed by French architect Jean Nouvel, is planned for the north corner of the Skyline Plaza site. The construction is planned to start in 2017 and to be completed in 2020.
Residential tower The Grand
In April 2014, a residential tower with a height of 160m was proposed instead.
In March 2016, the construction began, with an increased height of 172m.
