New hotel project in the Kaiserlei Quartier in Offenbach

Based on a design by KSP Jürgen Engel Architekten, Berlin / Frankfurt, a new Best Western Plus Hotel will be built between Offenbach and Frankfurt as part of the major Quartier Kaiserlei project. Boasting 188 rooms, the state-of-the-art hotel is due to open in early 2022. Extending over two floors, the lobby and bar area will be the centerpiece of the business hotel. The seven-story hotel is part of a structure comprising three buildings with different facilities. In addition to the hotel, there are an office building and a six-story parking deck behind the uniform facade. This powerful sculpture marks the start of Quartier Kaiserlei, one of the biggest real estate projects in the Rhine-Main region. On land measuring approx. 3.5 hectares, the Berlin-based CG Group is building a visionary, urban quarter for living, working, and recreation.

First module of the new CO2-neutral Siemens Campus commissioned

Siemens AG has begun relocating to the first section of the Siemens Campus in Erlangen. The first of eight modules with a surface area of about 100,000 m² was commissioned in 2019. It comprises eight office buildings with service and commercial areas on the ground floors and three parking decks. Boasting visionary office, research and laboratory facilities, not to mention apartments. The new campus covers around 54 hectares. In October 2019 the foundation stone was laid for the second module, which will also feature a befitting reception building that in future will serve as the main arrival point for the new campus. All the edifices in the second section will be built as innovative, sustainable timber hybrid structures by ZECH Building GmbH. Furthermore, this saves 80 percent CO2 in comparison with the conventional construction method. This underscores the Siemens Campus’ aspiration with regard to sustainability. Here is a link to an article by the broadcaster Bayerischer Rundfunk.
