Big get-together with Petra Roth: the Senckenbergturm in Frankfurt am Main nears completion

After two and a half years of construction, the NAS Real Asset Management office tower at Senckenberganlage 19 is right on schedule. A fully digitised, smart visitor management platform and an uncompromising focus on sustainability and New Work make the tower the new highlight of the up-and-coming Senckenberg-Quartier neighbourhood.

NAS Real Asset Management celebrated the imminent completion of the 106-metre-high Senckenbergturm in Frankfurt am Main at a get-together with clients, project partners and the media, and presented the new landmark of the Senckenberg-Quartier to the public for the first time. 25 storeys, 26,724 sq m of rental space, a slim, linear façade, the highest international quality standards, an uncompromising focus on digital infrastructure, sustainability and New Work, a green roof terrace on the trapezoidal base and a privileged location are just some of the features with which the office tower will set new standards in the Frankfurt office market after its completion in the fourth quarter of the year and after a construction period of two and a half years. 

Steffen Ricken, CEO of NAS Invest, at the event which was also attended by Frankfurt's former Lord Mayor and Honorary Citizen of the City, Petra Roth: 
"The Senckenbergturm embodies everything that constitutes modern and innovative work today and will therefore, also literally, become a view of the future. The fact that we have managed to stay completely on schedule despite the pandemic and will be ready to welcome our first tenants in the autumn of this year pleases me immensely and demonstrates the successful roles played by all project participants.” 

There has been a promising start to the marketing of the office space in the tower, with BNP Paribas, a renowned principal tenant, already securing space in the future-oriented business environment. Construction work on the Senckenberg complex in the immediate vicinity of the world-famous Senckenberg Museum began in 2019. “The Evolution of Highrise” is therefore emblematic of the next stage of evolution that the project developer and owner, NAS, has reached with the latest highlight of Frankfurt’s skyline, and of the respect that architectural and building features pay to people, the city and nature. Ultimately, apart from the most modern building standards and first-class fit-out specification, the tower, designed by cyrus moser | architekten, represents uncompromising dedication to sustainability, digital building management and connectivity, and a consistent orientation towards New Work.

The magnificent two-storey lobby which radiates openness already makes a lasting impression as the future-oriented calling card of the new tower. The innovative concept with café bar, big screen info point and lounge atmosphere radiates urbanity and elegance and prepares for the next highlight of the office tower - the fully digitised visitor management platform for uncomplicated registration processes with maximum security. Access is controlled digitally via registration terminals and biometric facial recognition ensures a smooth check-in process. Functions such as body temperature-based Covid-19 screening provide additional safety and already offer solutions for the needs of a new era.

The Senckenbergturm also sets standards in the field of New Work. The space and fit-out quality are perfectly tailored to the needs of a new generation of work. Flexible and efficient floor plans provide the best possible conditions for hybrid working, while heated and cooled ceilings and floor-to-ceiling windows that can be opened guarantee a pleasant indoor microclimate at all times. Everything is managed simply via a space management app. However, the unique view of the skyline and Taunus landscape, especially from the upper floors of the tower, is completely analogue, but all the more beautiful for being so.

Thanks to the latest technology and an uncompromising choice of materials geared towards environmental and climate protection, the Senckenbergturm also sets standards in Frankfurt in terms of sustainability. Optimally reduced carbon emissions, use of certified timber, water-saving features, low-emission building materials, thermal comfort and health-promoting workplaces qualify the landmark for the BREEAM "Excellent" standard.

The Senckenbergturm also scores in terms of location. The diverse use mix in the Senckenberg-Quartier, with offices, hotels, housing, children’s nursery and restaurants ensures that the local amenities leave nothing to be desired and that the neighbourhood offers everything you need before or after work or during your lunch break. With direct underground and surface public transport connections, as well as the Messe trade fair and congress centre and motorway junction in the immediate vicinity, you are always right in the middle of everything and can also enjoy ample bicycle parking and EV charging stations. 172 underground parking spaces complete the offer.
