The architecture firm Albert Speer+Partner (AS+P) recently announced that the construction of a 15,000-capacity multifunctional arena in the “heart of Europe” (Frankfurt, Germany) is feasible.

‘AS+P’ stated that recently the City of Frankfurt/Main (Germany) presented the results of several in-depth studies carried out that consider a multifunctional arena on parking lot P9 next to Frankfurt’s Deutsche Bank Park to be “feasible and one that makes sense”.

In Autumn, the City Council and the Municipal authorities will take a decision on the above planned multiuse arena.
