Half of Frankfurt’s Marienturm let
Demand from international companies remains high
The Marienturm in Frankfurt’s banking district acquires further tenants: Alongside Goldman Sachs, who occupies the largest area in the office tower to date, this summer, Simon-Kucher & Partners, a management consultancy with global operations, has also moved into the building . The international law firms Covington & Burling LLP and Pinsent Masons LLP have also opted for a location in the middle of Frankfurt’s Central Business District and will move into their respective premises of around 2,000sq m in the Marienturm this year and next summer, respectively. And only recently a contract was signed with Mastercard Europa SA for office space of roughly 2,600sq m.
Moreover, culinary offerings are already available in Marienturm with the opening of the lunch restaurant “Chez Marie” and adjoining café bar on the ground floor in September, both operated by Food Affairs, a young, innovative brand of the Compass Group Deutschland GmbH. This range of amenities will soon be complemented by a nursery operated by pme Familienservice Gruppe, Germany’s leading provider of work-life balance services. Furthermore, from Spring 2020 Memox Innovations AG will offer its services relating to workshops and conferencing on a separate floor. Then half of the total floor space in Marienturm will have been let, while demand continues to be high.
“We are in concrete negotiations with further potential tenants, among them well-known global players. Our office building scores with an excellent location as well as high space efficiency and by being a full-service building with a multitude of amenities – factors which also encourage international companies to decide for Marienturm,” explains Markus Brod, Managing Partner at Pecan Development.
Dr. Volker Balda, Head of Frankfurt Office at Pinsent Masons, is likewise impressed by the concept of CULTIVATING WORK in the Marienturm: “We are convinced that an inspiring work setting combined with these amenities is of immense importance for a company’s success. The Marienturm not only offers attractive office spaces geared towards modern working methods but also a diverse range of offerings both in the building itself and the immediate vicinity, which helps us realising our strategic goals.”
Some 155 metres high, the Marienturm is located at Taunusanlage 9 – 10 and is part of the office ensemble Marieninsel, which also includes the 40-metre tall Marienforum and adjoining square Marienplatz. The tower with total rental space of 45,450sq m on 38 floors was completed this year.
On floor space of some 1,300sq m the lunch restaurant “Chez Marie” operated by Food Affairs presents an international food counter concept, whose offerings can also be enjoyed by non-tenants. The nursery run by pme Familienservice Gruppe can look after up to 44 children aged up to 3 years. However, in the first year its places will be reserved exclusively for tenants of the Marienturm and Marienforum. On a total area of almost 900sq m of conference space Memox offers individual meeting environments for various formats, combining spatial, methodical and service expertise to create a service offer easy to book.
