At the Mainzer Landstrasse (at the corner of Güterplatz), a 128-meter tall skyscraper called The Spin (also known as Spin Tower and Tower 120) will be built from 2018. The skyscraper tower has a mix of hotel and office space and comes from the Hamburg architectural office, Hadi Teherani. The design of The Spin convinced the architectural jury mainly through a successful visual separation of its types of usage emphasising the “head” of the tower, as well as the intelligent surface planning.
However, Gross & Partner Grundstücksentwicklungsgesellschaft mbH, the developer of the project, encouraged the winning design to further revise the concept for an optimisation of the design. A special feature of the property is the direct access to the U5, which is to stand next to the high-rise building from 2022 onwards.
At the new high-rise, the first twenty storeys have already been leased long-term to the NH hotel group. There, in early 2021, a premium hotel of the NH Collection brand will be opened. From the 22nd to the 31st floor, approx. 8,500 square meters of office space can be rented.
Status February 2018: Deutsche Pfandbriefbank has granted a loan of 157 million euros to subsidiaries of the Groß & Partner Group for the new construction of this tower.
