Facts

  • The opening is scheduled for January 1, 2010.
  • Demolition of buildings on the site commenced in the autumn of 2001, more than five years before construction began.
  • The name of this building comes from the Alte Oper, which is located across the street at Opernplatz.
  • After lengthy debate a taller version of the tower was approved on December 4, 2001. The height was increased to 169m (554ft).
  • At the 2007 Skyscraper Festival, when this building had recently begun construction, the tower crane lifted visitors in a red cylindrical observation cage while a mobile crane lifted a covered platform where visitors enjoyed a picnic high above the foundations.
