120-meter Henninger Tower, build in Frankfurt am Main by Henninger beer company in 1961, which lasted 52 years, remains the tallest grain silo in the world. In 2013 it was demolished — it seemed too expensive and uneconomical to renovate. In June 2014 the construction of 140-meter Henninger skyscraper started at the same site. The apartment house with 130 luxurious apartments will be finished in 2016.
