The Amazing MyZeil

The MyZeil is a shopping mall in the city center of Frankfurt, designed by Roman architect Massimiliano Fuksas. It is part of the building ensembles PalaisQuartier and forms its access to the Zeil shopping street.

The structural design of the imposing steel and glass construction is by Knippers Helbig from Stuttgart. Rainwater from the nearly 6000 square meters large roof areas is collected, cleaned and returned to the water cycle of the house. Early 2008, the shell of the shopping center was completed and started the interior work.

The name of the investor MyZeil presented on 10 November 2008 in the presence of the Frankfurt Mayor Petra Roth to the public. The name emphasized the historical roots of the site, and be also of Frankfort, as Englishmen like to express. The mayor described the name as “absolutely brilliant”.
