The Harenberg City-Center in Dortmund , which opened in April 1994, is one of the tallest buildings in the city with 19 above-ground and 2 underground floors at a height of 70 m. It was built by Hochtief and is currently owned by JP Morgan .
It offers work for around 600 employees from 20 companies on around 29,000 m² of gross floor area (net approx. 21,500 m²). Due to its location in the immediate vicinity of Dortmund's main train station , it is also known as the "house with a siding". The location of the publishing house on the southern station forecourt is part of a typical urban space from the 1950s . A solution for the previously undeveloped western side could only be another high- rise that corresponds to the existing high-rise buildings , given the size of the square and in connection with the urban planning conditions . The central hall opens to the Königswall.
Many famous singers, stars and artists of international standing performed in the Harenberg City Center or opened exhibitions, including Peter Ustinov , the film stars Maria Schell and Liselotte Pulver , the actors Will Quadflieg and Otto Sander , the sculptors Günther Uecker , Alfred Hrdlicka , Rainer Fetting , George Rickey and Federico Schiaffino , the singers Waltraud Meier and Thomas Quasthoff , the pianists Alfred Brendel and Pierre-Laurent Aimard .
