The Millennium Tower is a proposed supertall skyscraper whose completion date is unknown. If ever completed, it would be Europe's tallest tower. It will be located in Frankfurt, Germany and will have a height of 369 m (1,211 ft) with 97 storeys. Thirty percent of the building is planned to be residential. The client was EIM (Eisenbahn Immobilien Management) and the concept was created by Albert Speer & Partner, as a component of the high-rise master plan of Frankfurt in 1998.

By the end of 2000, Donald Trump stated that he would plan to make the Millennium Tower the tallest residential skyscraper worldwide. Eventually though, Donald no longer pursued the project. On the real estate exhibition Cityscape, which took place in Dubai, the project was presented as cubic model in October 2007. With the property owned by Vivico Real Estate GmbH, the Millennium Tower would be located in the Gallus district, just east of Messe Frankfurt near the business quarter development Europaviertel. Since May 2001, the official construction permit has been granted.

It could be marketed as the European headquarters for global companies. But due to the economic crisis in 2008, it is yet unclear whether the project will be carried out.
