High-rise project ‘ONE’ (former project name: ‘Tower One’) is built near the exhibition grounds. The design is from MEURER ARCHITEKTUR + STADTPLANUNG and the developer is CA Immo. A building has been developed that, on the one hand, has a minimalist conciseness, similar to a classic brand logo, but it can also be expected to have a high degree of economic efficiency in production and operation. The characteristic shape of the tower gives it high prominence in the cityscape of Frankfurt.
One is developed as a polygonal disk with a distinctive head formation in the main axis. The adjoining building, with a main function as a parking garage, is added to it as a supplement. Together, they form two trapezoid-shaped city squares, which open towards the city like a funnel.
The lower 14 floors are used as a hotel with restaurant and conference areas, and the upper floors are designed as office space. There is a shared lobby on the 15th / 16th floors. A co-working area and a skybar at 190 meters form the backbone and urban heart of the building.
Upon its completion, ONE will become the sixth tallest building in the city after MAIN TOWER.
