It was designed by the architects Foster + Partners and Rhode Kellermann Wawrowsky (RKW) and built by Hochtief AG as general contractor from 1998 to 2001, after the old ARAG multi-tiered high -rise building , which was built by the architect Paul Schneider-Esleben over the years 1964 to 1967, had been demolished.

At almost 125 meters, the ARAG Tower is two meters higher than the highest skyscraper in Düsseldorf to date, the LVA Tower (now Deutsche Rentenversicherung Rheinland ) at the southern end of Königsallee. The 32- storey building offers workplaces for around 950 people. The office floors are laid out in such a way that they can be set up differently as required.

The building has four garden floors , which are used, among other things, for relaxation. Air conditioning is not superfluous in this building, although the facade is designed as a double facade , which should provide a natural fresh air supply and used air disposal. The glass facade of the building is 20,000 m². The primary energy consumption of 232.2 kWh / m² is very good compared to similarly equipped buildings.

The monumental sculpture Movimento Ellissoidale by Roberto Cordone stands in front of the ARAG Tower at ARAG-Platz 1 .
