The contract is with the Perella Weinberg Real Estate Fund II, which is working with project developer Pecan Development on the 155m-tall tower. The building will have 38 above-ground floors and three more below ground level, giving a gross floor area of some 70,000m2. The levels up to the fifth floor are expected to house a lunch restaurant, a coffee bar, a gym, a child day care centre and conference areas.
Design of the building is by Berlin firm Müller-Reimann Architekten, which won the architectural competition in September 2013.
Hochtief is carrying out the Marienturm project on the basis of a ‘PreFair’ process, whereby the company has already been working closely with the client during the outline planning phase. The Marienturm’s target construction and costs, for instance, were jointly determined during the one-year preconstruction phase.
