residential tower LyonerstraßeEdit profile
The Lyoner Quarter in Frankfurt Niederrad is to be transformed. The first plans for the restructuring of thisexisting office area shall provide a range of new attractive living spaces. This pilot project for the restructuring of the Lyoner quarter sees the reorganisation of an existing derelict office tower into a block of flats by Stefan Forster Architekten. Dreyer Vierte Verwaltungsgesellschaft mbH proposed to redesign and modify an unused 14-storied office building at 19 Lyoner Street into a 17-storied residential tower. The floors between 1 to 17 of the building are designated for living use, the ground floor is to commercial units, with a single-storey underground parking garage. In June 2010 ninety-eight accommodation units and a commercial unit shall be offered onto the market with a combined floor area 6.900 sqm. The accomodation unit consists of two and three-room apartments which shall be partially furnished to a high standard. This development shall appeal to people working in or near the office city „Niederrad“ of the airport. The existing construction has been retained and adapted. Utilizising classic Modernist principles the building is articulated with a ribbon facade of the extended glass areas. By adding an additional 3 floors the building becomes more elegently proportioned.
