The Oderturm tower block in Frankfurt (Oder) is 88.9 metres high, making it the highest building in the state of Brandenburg. It is visible from afar and has become a modern landmark of the town. The 24-storey building was constructed between 1968 and 1976 as an office building. Following reconstruction and renovation works, the tower block reopened in 1996 with a new shopping centre on the bottom floors. The building accommodates, among other things, some 40 shops, many restaurants and cafés, offices and doctors' surgeries and employs around 1,300 people. In Andreas Dresen's film "Halbe Treppe" ("Grill Point"), the Oderturm tower block accommodates a radio studio. And in fact the lower part of the tower block does house studios of the rbb channel.
