With a population of about 617,000, the North Rhine-Westphalian capital Dusseldorf is the seventh largest city in Germany and the second largest city in North Rhine-Westphalia after Cologne. The UpperNord Tower, a modern residential development, is currently being built to meet the growing demand for living space and will become another landmark of the Dusseldorf skyline. Located at the northern entrance to the city, the 120m high residential tower will be the tallest of its kind in Dusseldorf and the third tallest skyscraper in the city. The UpperNord Tower will provide around 29,200 m² of floor space over 36 floors. The majority of this space will become 432 planned residential units. The plans also include a variety of restaurants on the ground floor, a three-story underground parking garage and a five-story hotel, which will adjoin the building.
