The Eurotower in Frankfurt’s Financial District has received LEED gold certification for existing properties. LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) is a green building certification for real estate. Both the building performance, e.g. energy consumption, water consumption, as well as the building operation with purchasing and disposal strategies as well as technical operation.
Alexandra Pase, who works for the asset manager PATRIZIA, said: “Moving existing buildings into a sustainable future is an essential task of a responsible real estate investment management. We are pleased that we were able to optimize the life cycle assessment values of one of the most famous high-rise buildings in Frankfurt by introducing ecological technologies and materials. ”
The Euro Tower received particularly good ratings for the criteria of climate protection and energy efficiency, water reduction, connection and location, as well as material ecology and contribution to healthy building.
The Eurotower is one of the better-known office towers on the Frankfurt skyline. In front of the building there is also the characteristic Euro sculpture, which is now a landmark of both the banking metropolis and Europe. Like no other building, the sculpture symbolizes that the common European currency was born here. The tenant of the Eurotower is the European Central Bank (ECB).
PATRIZIA acquired the Euro Tower at the end of 2018 for Fubon Life, one of the largest Taiwanese insurance companies, and has since been responsible for the asset management of the striking property.
