With a population of only 750.000 people Frankfurt is a rather small city. I terms of horizontal growth it has already reached it's capacities. The city is surrounded by a green belt, which is under landscape protection; a program enacted by the city government in 1991. Highways and Germany's largest airport set another limiting factors. This means, that the interior and the existing buildings are exposed to the urban renewing forces even more.
