The building complex consisting of the 12-storey high-rise building at the Konstablerwache and a six-storey extension at the Zeil has a total of 7,000 m² of office space and 3,500 m² of retail space. The horizontal window bands with natural stone façade of the high-rise building, including individual square windows on the top floor, are striking.

 

In the course of the current renovation of the high-rise building, the 9 office floors and the uppermost residential floor will be renovated to the latest standards in interior design and building services and the listed façade revitalized.

 

Construction is scheduled to start in spring 2020 and will be carried out in three phases.
