The €360m Skyline Plaza shopping and leisure centre in the Europaviertel district in Frankfurt, Germany, has been topped out following completion of the building shell.
Partners in the project include German property firm CA Immo and real estate developer ECE.
In 2011, German insurer Allianz acquired an 80% stake in the centre from the joint developers, who each retain 10% stake in the project.
Scheduled to open in August 2013, the shopping centre will include 38,000m² of sales area, a parking lot to house about 2,400 cars and about 10,000m² green rooftop garden featuring a 1,000m² rooftop restaurant.
The centre will have two shopping floors housing 180 shops, cafes, restaurants and service enterprises, as well as a food court to accommodate 400 people.
Skyline Plaza will also feature a 9,200m² fitness, wellness and bodycare MeridianSpa, which is scheduled to open in November 2013.
ECE will manage the shopping centre and about 90% of it has already been leased to tenants, including Peek & Cloppenburg, Zara, Media Markt, H&M and a REWE supermarket.
The building has received a preliminary Gold sustainability certificate from the German Sustainable Building Council (DGNB).
The project is part of the 90ha Europaviertel urban quarter development started in 2005 on the site of the former freight depot near the main railway station and is expected to complete in 2019.
Other projects in the Europaviertel urban quarter scheme include CA Immo’s €450m Tower 185 and a €100m residential project by the Netherland-based real estate firm Bouwfonds. One third of the development is reserved for green spaces.
