The immediate vicinity of the building has the highest concentration of international banks, consultancies and law firms in Germany. There is an acute shortage of space in premium locations. There are many international players in the immediate neighbourhood.
The Banking District glistens with internationalism, sophistication and a superb restaurant and retail scene.
There are also attractive city centre parks such as the Taunusanlage and Rothschild Park and internationally recognised hotspots such as the Opernplatz, Goethestrasse and Fressgass, one of Germany’s most renowned restaurant areas.
The elegant curved facade with its green CANYONs gives the building an unrivalled level of recognition. Here is where modern office space with exceptional levels of comfort meets sustainability with social engagement.

Positive effects on well-being
Greenhouse gas emissions are 27% below the level required for new buildings. The CO2 absorption of the green roof and green façade is approx. 2,000 kg p.a. (roof approx. 600 kg, façade approx. 1,400 kg).
The primary energy demand is 33% below the level required for new buildings
The roof structure of the green roofs achieves energy savings of around 10%.
70% of the rainwater runoff saved through the design of the green roof gardens as a retention roof.
The strict requirements of LEED certification and the EU taxonomy criteria that are implemented take into consideration issues such as climate protection, climate change adaptation, sustainability, the circular economy and environmental pollution i.e. the proven sustainability of the products used, water-saving fittings, electric mobility, reduction of light pollution, energy efficiency, building eco-balance, etc.
An increase in humidity can be achieved in the building through the roof gardens and green façades, i.e. depending on the availability of water, the green roofs can evaporate up to 2.0 l/m² of water per day (e.g. approx. 1,200 m² of roof greening = 2,400 l).
The green façades and roof gardens can lead to a reduction in the ambient temperature of approx. 2°C.
Studies have shown that high levels of greenery can reduce stress and increase alertness.
Green roofs and façades provide a unique habitat and refuge for numerous animal species and, at the same time, contribute to biodiversity.
The roof gardens and green façades can actively reduce the fine dust content by approx. 10% - 30%.
A reduction in nitrogen oxides of up to 40% is achieved by the green façades and approx. 30% by the green roofs.
The office space in Canyon allows the implementation of flexible New Work concepts as well as traditional ways of working. Innovative, sustainable building engineering und impressive views in all directions create an ideal work environment with a real feel-good factor.
