The tower is located on the site of the former gas plant at Hamburg-Bahrenfeld. It has been built to store the charcoal needed for the gas production process.
The plant was shut down in 1938. After the war, the site and the tower were used by a company providing animal food.
From the late eighties on, the abandoned tower had been used by artists for ateliers and residential lofts.
In 1998 and the following years, the whole site underwent redevelopment and was converted into a new city quarter featuring several appartment blocks, lofts in old factory buildings and several retail facilities. The tower itself was thoroughly converted and does now offer exclusive offices and appartments.
