The Bienenkorbhaus on Konstablerwache and Frankfurt’s Zeil, which has been a listed building since 2014, is being extensively modernized and refurbished by the Stuttgart-based construction company Züblin on behalf of RFR Holding GmbH. The project is being managed by the Frankfurt-based company FF-Projekt GmbH.
The building was designed in 1954 by Professor Johannes Krahn of the Städelschule. The building complex, consisting of the 12-story, 43-meter-high high-rise and a six-story annex on the Zeil, houses a total of 7,000 square meters of office space and 3,500 square meters of retail space.
Construction is scheduled to be completed by 2023. The construction work includes the following measures, among others:
- Gutting/demolition of the entire building
- Renewal of the building services
- Creation of office space based on the latest standards
- Renovation of the entire facade
- Redesign of the entrance area
The new rental space is to be individually subdivided and completely barrier-free. Ceiling sails and a heat recovery system will also be installed. Overall, the high-rise is to be repositioned as an eye-catcher at the central point of the city center and thus meet modern working requirements.
