TaunusTurm (originally Kaiserkarree) is the project name for a complex of two buildings, a 170 m (560 ft) skyscraper and a 60 m (200 ft) high-rise residential building, currently under construction in Frankfurt, Germany. The construction site is located in Frankfurt's financial district, the Bankenviertel, at the corner of Neue Mainzer Straße and Taunustor. The site borders a park named Taunusanlage, which gave the tower its name (the Taunus is a low mountain range north of Frankfurt). The buildings were designed by architecture firm Gruber + Kleine-Kraneburg. The project developer is real estate building and operating company Tishman Speyer which also built the Messeturm and the Opernturm in Frankfurt. The start of construction was in April 2011 and the complex is expected to be finished by December 2013.
