On a total of 34,210 m² gross floor area, sales areas for four retail shops, administration and office space for a co-working company are accommodated. The 8-storey and 45 m wide building has a spectacular glass façade for views in and out. The upper three floors jump back 3.6 m and thus communicate with the neighbouring buildings. A flexible building structure will make it possible to change the distribution of retail space in the future. The main tenant is Galeria Kaufhof GmbH, which is expanding and connecting its sales areas in the neighbouring building by 10,700 m². Further tenants are Vodafone with a flagship store, the fashion discounter “Reserved”, Sephora Kosmetik and Benetton. The coworking company “We work” rents office space on three upper floors. Administration and technology are located on the 7th floor.
