The B&L Gruppe (“B&L Group”) from Hamburg is developing three major projects at the Osthafen (“Eastern Harbour”) in Frankfurt, where 500 apartments, a hotel, a 60-meter high office tower and a day care centre are to be built. On a neighbouring site east of Honsellstrasse, which is still part of the city, 150 apartments are being built, of which 50 are subsidised rental apartments. The project developer also bought the Molenkopf from the city in Osthafen to build a hotel tower up to 60 meters high. A total of five high-rise buildings with at least 10 floors each are due to be created in the Harbour Park Quarter (“Hafenpark Quartier“) project.
Status March 2019: The architectural competition for the development of the Molenkopf in the Osthafen Frankfurt has been completed. The project is called Waterfront and the winner of the competition is the architecture firm Barkow Leibinger from Berlin.
