Frankfurt Airport, the busiest in Germany, boasts two train stations. The original station handles fast commuter service to downtown Frankfurt, and destinations across the metropolitan region.
Upon the introduction of Frankfurt-Cologne high-speed ICE service, the airport opened a second station to handle the additional traffic. The new station sees over 210 daily long-distance trains serving destinations across Germany.
Atop the new long-distance train station, sits the largest office building in Germany. The Squaire real estate development hosts offices and a hotel. It also represents a compelling development model. This practice, seen across the world, involves a government building a new rail connection, making local real estate more valuable. They can then leverage increased value from new developments to pay for the station or rail connection.
