The Paulus Immobiliengruppe and their partner Patron Capital Partners commissioned Eike Becker_Architekten with the realisation of a high rise project in the “Europaviertel” in Frankfurt a. M. The architects won the architectural competition organised by the city of Frankfurt. The concept of Eike Becker_Architekten provides two buildings that differ significantly from each other. The 60m tall Office High-rise has an H-shaped floorplan that pivots off axis at mid-height to give the building a striking form. Adjacent to the Office building is a 7-storey hotel.
Essential to the jury’s decision was the economic efficiency of the concept and the potential for vitalisation, achieved by the creation of retail and gastronomic spaces in the ground floor. The high-rise will offer room for up to 3,000 workplaces, the hotel will house 320-350 rooms. A two-storey basement provides 400 underground parking lots. Construction is due to start in the 2nd half of 2018. The aim for completion is 2020.
