Sweco to provide several planning and design services for Grand Central project in Frankfurt am Main

October 16, 2017 | Press release

Sweco has been commissioned by a joint venture of Groß & Partner Grundstücksentwicklungsgesellschaft mbH and Phoenix Real Estate Development GmbH to plan and design a vital part of the Grand Central project in Frankfurt am Main, a large office project beside the city’s central station.

The area next to Frankfurt main station, one of Europe’s busiest, is about to undergo a significant transformation. 18,000 square meters, including a group of buildings from the 1970’s, will be completely redesigned. A team of experts from Sweco and the newly acquired Jo. Franzke Generalplaner GmbH will provide services in planning, architecture, structural engineering and redesign, for the project “Grand Central Frankfurt – Building A and B”.

”Grand Central Frankfurt is a multifaceted and ambitious urban development project in the heart of Frankfurt. We bring committed expertise from Jo. Franzke, Sweco Germany, and Sweco Poland and look forward to create new environments for people to live and work,” says Ina Brandes, President Sweco Central Europe.

The project “Grand Central Frankfurt – Building A and B” consists of two new interconnected seven-storey buildings, with a gross floor area above ground of approximately 52,000 square meters, extensive outdoor facilities and a two-storey underground parking. The buildings will become the new head office of DB Netz AG, a subsidiary of Deutsche Bahn, with 2,200 employees. A group of buildings on the lot will be demolished.

All buildings should meet the LEED Gold standard for sustainable buildings.
