The Turm Center Frankfurt at Eschersheimer Landstraße 14 is a 74 meter high office tower. Originally built in 1970, it was extensively revitalized from 2014 to 2015. Before that, it had stood empty for several years. The English real estate fund Benson Elliot had acquired the building from Landesbank Baden-Württemberg in 2013 with the aim of a modern transformation.
In the course of the revitalization, the facade was completely renewed and the interior redesigned. In cooperation with Drees & Sommer (building planning), the Turm Center received a sustainable and efficient energy control system. Energy stored on the sunny side of the building is transferred to the remaining parts of the building via an internal control system. This means that the high-rise areas can be heated to a large extent from renewable sources. In summer, solar radiation is also captured by a solar thermal system on the roof and used to generate regenerative cooling. Thanks to the significant upgrading of the building fabric, the Turm Center has now been awarded LEED Gold certification.
As a result of the revitalization, the Turm Center has also been given a porch facing the street and an intermediate structure facing the parking garage. In total, the high-rise building has 22 floors, a gross floor area of approximately 17,000 square meters and a leasable area of 13,400 square meters. The first floor features a lobby with two commercial units, while the space on the upper floors is flexibly leased as combined, cellular or open-space offices.
In 2018, the Turm Center was sold to UBS Asset Management for 155 million euros.
