TaunusTurm in Frankfurt am Main

TaunusTurm (German for TaunusTower) was designed by the architectural office Gruber und Kleine-Graneburg and is located in the middle of the Financial District. On 40 floors, companies find around 60,000 square meters (645,834 square feet) of high-quality office space. The high-rise building was developed by project developer Tishman Speyer in a joint venture with investor Commerz Real AG. TaunusTurm has a great similarity in terms of height technology like OpernTurm, which was also developed by Tishman Speyer.

TaunusTurm’s clear lines and self-confidently purist formal vocabulary lend visual expression to the notion of an aspiration upwards. The marvellously bright and transparent natural stone facade is patterned in two-floor sections, with each of them forming one large window, thus influencing the path the light takes.

The 13 meter high main lobby is the entrance to the high-rise tower and also fulfills a special function in the urban context. It functions as a new city gate at the Taunustor and creates a direct connection to the park. In return, the park landscape gives the location width and space. Inside the lobby there is high quality natural stone on the walls, floors and reception counter.

Tenants in the TaunusTurm are among others J.P. Morgan, Stephens Europe Ltd, Debevoise & Plimpton LLP, goetzpartners, Moelis & Company, Odgers Berndtson, Mizuho Bank and McKinsey & Company, Inc. On the ground floor there is also a gastronomic use, which forms an entrance to the Museum of Modern Art Art shares which operates an external exhibition space on the 2nd floor. Next to the office building stands the 63 meter (207 feet) high residential building TaunusTurm Residential which has been constructed at the same time like TaunusTurm.

Just next of TaunusTurm are Japan Center, OmniTurm and Global Tower located at the same street crossing.
