 Summary:
 Frankfurt is one of the most international cities in Germany, with wellestablished identity of financial capital of both the country and the European Union. Still, city image of this modern global metropolis, marked by its distinct skyline, was significantly modified after the new premises for the European Central Bank (ECB) headquarters were constructed outside of the established high-rise zone. The new prime urban landmark also served as a flagship for comprehensive spatial conversion of the brownfield riverfront area, as well as initiator of social changes in the Ostend district.
