    New marketing in the Top Segment: DLA Piper Sign Lease for 5,400 sqm at the WINX

    DLA Piper, one of the world's leading law firms, just signed a long-term lease for the six top floors (23rd to 28th floor) of “WINX - The Riverside Tower” and will occupy around 5,400 sqm of the tower's office space. The company plans to move into its new premises by spring 2018. The transaction, which was facilitated by the JLL estate agency, brings the occupancy of WINX Tower up to 75 percent.

    Ulrich Höller, CEO of GEG: “I am very pleased to say that we found another blue-chip tenant for MainTor in DLA Piper. The WINX Tower is the showpiece of the MainTor Quarter, whose overall occupancy is now at almost 90 percent, an amazing rate when you consider that the building activity has yet to be completed.”

    Dr. Michael Holzhäuser, Office Managing Partner of the Frankfurt branch of DLA Piper: “Having seen our operation at the Frankfurt branch steadily expand in recent years, we are very much looking forward to our new offices. At the WINX as Frankfurt's latest best-of-class property, we found perfect accommodations for our ongoing development and expansion of the Frankfurt office to more than 100 attorneys.”

    The “MainTor-Quartier” project in Frankfurt involves the redevelopment of the area between the streets Untermainkai and Weissfrauenstrasse. In the process of redeveloping the formerly enclosed brownfield compound of Degussa, the area is being restored to public use, with historic access ways from the inner city to the Main riverbank revitalised and firmly integrated into the lanes and streets of the surrounding city quarter. The development divides into six autonomous building projects, five of which have already been completed, sold and largely let: the commercially used buildings “Primus,” “Panorama” and “Porta,” plus the residential tower blocks “Palazzi” and “Patio.” The shell and core of the WINX Tower will be completed in late 2016 or early 2017. The MainTor Quarter has architectonically upgraded this riverbank section of Frankfurt's CBD, and thereby accomplished its completion in urban-planning terms. The entire MainTor Quarter complex is scheduled to be operational by 2018. The interests in the MainTor project are held by Deutsche Immobilien Chancen Group and DIC Asset AG. GEG German Estate Group is responsible for the entire project development and the project execution including all marketing. The investment volume totals approximately EUR 800 million. All things considered, the gross lettable area available at MainTor Quarter adds up to around 100,000 sqm.

    DLA Piper has maintained a presence in Frankfurt since 2005. Today, around 130 of the law firm's staff work out of this branch. DLA Piper provides comprehensive legal advisory services in more than 30 countries in Europe, Africa, Asia, Australia, the Middle East and in the Americas. The law firm's footprint in Germany includes around 220 attorneys in five branch locations: Berlin, Cologne, Frankfurt am Main, Hamburg and Munich. For more details on DLA Piper, please go to

    Neuer Turm taucht auf

    Beim Blick über den Main ist das Winx mittlerweile gut zu erkennen. Auf 43 Meter Höhe ist das neue Hochhaus auf dem Maintor-Areal inzwischen „gewachsen“. Die letzten 67 Meter bis zur endgültigen Höhe von 110 Metern mit insgesamt 29 Geschossen sollen bis Ende 2017/ Anfang 2018 fertiggestellt sein, der Rohbau Ende dieses Jahres. Der von dem Frankfurter Architekturbüro KSP Jürgen Engel entworfene nächste Wolkenkratzer der Frankfurter City mit einer Glas-Stahl-Fassade wird 28 000 Quadratmeter Gewerbefläche haben. Davon konnten die ersten 60 Prozent bereits an die Union Investment vermietet werden. Das Unternehmen zieht damit seine 1800 Mitarbeiter am Standort Frankfurt auf dem Maintor-Areal zusammen und verlässt das Hochhaus an der Wiesenhüttenstraße. Im Erdgeschoss wird ein Restaurant der Kette Vapiano eröffnen. Der Tower „Winx“, in erster Reihe am Fluss gelegen, ist das letzte der sechs Projekte auf dem Maintor-Areal, dem früheren Degussa-Gelände, das von der German Estate Group (GEG) entwickelt wird. Insgesamt werden rund 800 Millionen Euro investiert. Mittlerweile sind mehr als 80 Prozent der Wohn- und Gewerbeflächen vermietet.
