Hauptgueterbahnhof is now a huge empty space in the gallus-area close
to the Frankfurt-fair. About 4 years ago hauptgueterbahnhof (rail-cargo-station)
was knocked down. The township of Frankfurt am Main was eager to realize
the construction of an urban-entertainment-center on this site. So when
the hauptgueterbahnhof was knocked down some of the speakers installed
above the platforms could be saved. In the economic decline of the late
90ies there was no investor to be found for the realization of the uec.
Meanwhile other plans for the development of the described site - for
instance getting the olympic games 2012 into frankfurt - seem to fail.
But finally on 27th of july in 2002, 6 p.m., the uec will be realized.
Not on the huge site in the gallus-area, but in a tiny place inside the
apartment building behind the exhibition space "portikus". That
is because none of the plans works but the mentioned speakers still do.
HOW TO LOCATE
See the place (Lange Straße 2) in
Frankfurt am Main on 27th of july 2002 (saturday), 6 p.m. and later on
this night, and you will find your way to the hauptgueterbahnhof-uec in
the 8th floor.
