Located close to the “Hauptwache” and the “Zeil” shopping mile in downtown Frankfurt, the 135-meter-high “Nextower” office high-rise and the 96-meter-high “Jumeirah” hotel tower with 220 rooms are the high points of the PalaisQuartier. Other buildings such as the “MyZeil” shopping mall and the reconstructed Thurn and Taxis Palace add to the urban quarter. The “Nextower” was awarded the German Sustainable Building Council’s (DGNB) certification in Gold for its sustainable energy concept.
