Emporis GmbH is a real estate data mining company with headquarters in Frankfurtmarker, Germanymarker. The company collects and publishes data and photographs of buildings worldwide.

Emporis offers a variety of information on its public database, Emporis.com, located at www.emporis.com. Emporis is cited relatively frequently by various media sources as an authority on building data.

Emporis used to focus on high-rise buildings and skyscrapers in the past, which it defines as buildings "between 35 and 100 meters" tall and "at least 100 meters tall", respectively. Today the number of low-rise buildings and other structures on Emporis exceeds the number of high-rise buildings and skyscrapers by far.

History

Michael Wutzke started a website about skyscrapers in Frankfurt in 1996. In 2000 he started skyscrapers.com which was folded into Emporis.

In 2000 a group of Emporis senior editors began presenting the Emporis Skyscraper Award. Eligible buildings are selected from a list of all buildings in the world at least 100 meters tall which were completed that year.

In 2004 Stephan R. Boehm, who according to the company's website is a "serial entrepreneur", assumed the role of Chairman. Wutzke remains Chief Technology Officer and is managing director.

In 2005 Emporis formed a partnership with the Council on Tall Buildings and Urban Habitat (CTBUH), under which Emporis serves as the official CTBUH high-rise buildings database.

In 2007 venture capital firm Neuhaus Partners and KfW Bankengruppe invested several million Euro in the company.

Effective January 1, 2009, the company moved its headquarters from Darmstadtmarker to Frankfurt.
