• Contract worth around EUR 138 million;
• Completion planned for end of 2018.
The company has been contracted by the Perella Weinberg Real Estate Fund II which, together with project developer Pecan Development GmbH, is realizing the project on the Marieninsel, to build a 155-meter-high office tower in line with the sustainability criteria for LEED PLATINUM certification at Taunusanlage 9 10, with completion by the end of 2018. The contract is worth around EUR 138 million.
The new high-rise on the Marieninsel will feature 38 above-grade stories and three below-grade levels, with a gross floor area of some 70,000 square meters. The plinth levels up to the fifth floor are expected to house a lunch restaurant, a coffee bar, a gym, a child day care center and conference areas.
The Marienturm will add a further striking element to the downtown Frankfurt skyline. The design was made by the Berlin firm Müller-Reimann Architekten, which emerged as the winner of an architectural competition in September 2013.
HOCHTIEF is handling the Marienturm project on the basis of a PreFair process whereby the company already starts working closely with the client during the outline planning phase and can contribute its know-how with regard to costs, standards and deadlines to the project at an early stage. The Marienturm’s target construction and costs, for instance, were jointly determined during the one-year preconstruction phase.
“We are delighted to have won the contract to plan and construct the Marienturm. HOCHTIEF has once again lived up to its reputation as a high-rise specialist,” is the confident comment from Holger Neumann, head of the HOCHTIEF Building Frankfurt branch.
HOCHTIEF (hochtief.com) is one of the world’s leading high-rise builders and has constructed Frankfurt’s tallest skyscrapers: the Commerzbank Tower (259 meters), the Messeturm (257 meters), the WestendTower (208 meters), the Maintower (200 meters) and Tower 185 (200 meters).
