In new Harbor of Offenbach, the office tower Wayv (former project name: MAIN GATE EAST) will be built from 2020 onwards. For further planning, project developer Eyemaxx Real Estate AG and OPG Offenbacher Projektentwicklungsgesellschaft mbH, a Stadtwerke Offenbach Group company, held an architecture competition in the early summer of 2019. In addition to the Eyemaxx and OPG representatives, the jury included the Offenbach city council Paul-Gerhard Weiß and Simon Valerius from the Offenbach office for urban planning, traffic and construction management.

The first prize in the architectural competition was won by the architecture firm Meixner Schlüter Wendt from Frankfurt, who are known for their numerous designs in the Rhine-Main area. Above all, the jury of experts justifies the decision to award the winners’ place because the design by Meixner Schlüter Wendt represents a successful composition in the urban environment. For example, the plans for the office building include a façade structure made of steel and glass, which allows the building to be perceived as an appearance of the surroundings. In addition, the flexibility of the surfaces and the high incidence of light should be an advantage.

The Wayv tower already received pre-certificates for sustainability according to DGNB Gold and for exemplary connectivity according to WiredScore Gold before the start of construction.
