FRANKFURT | Grand Hyatt | 113m | Cancelled

Vivico schließt Vertrag mit Hyatt für Europaviertel
Frankfurt, 28. Januar 2008 Vivico unterzeichnete heute mit Hyatt International einen Managementvertrag für ein Grand Hyatt Hotel der 5 Sterne-Plus Kategorie. Das Hotel soll als rund 150 Meter hoher Hotelturm im Frankfurter Europaviertel an der Osloer Straße errichtet werden.

Bernhard H. Hansen, Vorsitzender der Geschäftsführung von Vivico, betonte beim Vertragsabschluss: „Vivico ist stolz darauf, den international hoch renommierten Betreiber Hyatt für den Standort Frankfurt und das Europaviertel gewonnen zu haben.“ Für Hansen unterstreicht das Engagement von Hyatt die Qualität des neu entstehenden Stadtquartiers und hebt die Bedeutung des Europaviertels für Frank-furt hervor.

„Wir freuen uns sehr, dass wir mit einem neuen Haus am wichtigen Banken- und Messestandort Frankfurt vertreten sein werden“, so Gebhard Rainer, Geschäftsfüh-rer Hyatt International Europe, Africa, Middle East. „Unser innovatives und zeitge-mäßes Produkt mit höchsten internationalen Standards passt hervorragend zu Frankfurt. Das Grand Hyatt Frankfurt ergänzt unsere bestehenden, erfolgreichen Häuser in Köln, Hamburg, Berlin, Mainz sowie 2010 in Düsseldorf ideal und ver-stärkt unsere Position im deutschen Markt.“ Bisher ist die Hyatt Gruppe mit dem Premium-Produkt „Grand Hyatt“ in Deutschland nur in Berlin vertreten.

Der Abschluss des Vertrages wurde von der erst 2007 gegründeten Viador, einem Joint Venture zwischen der Feuring Group und Vivico, initiiert. Viador wird das Projekt und den Betrieb weiter begleiten. Vivico realisiert das Hotel bis zur schlüs-selfertigen Übergabe. Als nächster Schritt folgt die architektonische Gestaltung; der Bauantrag soll noch im Jahr 2008 eingereicht werden. Die Fertigstellung des Hotel-turms ist für das Jahr 2011/12 geplant.

Der Turm wird über eine Bruttogeschossfläche von ca. 54.300 Quadratmetern ver-fügen. Das Hotel zählt mit seinen etwa 405 Zimmern, Restaurants, Bars und einem Fitness- und Wellnessbereich zur Spitzenkategorie. Vorgesehen ist ebenfalls ein öffentlich zugängliches Besucher-Center mit Blick auf die Frankfurter Skyline.

The Construction Start is End 2008 or Spring 2009
-The Hotel will open in 2011/2012
-In a height of more then 100m there will be a public restaurant with a skyline view

Here is the english version of the press release:

Vivico and Hyatt conclude agreement for Europaviertel


Frankfurt, 28 January 2008 Vivico and Hyatt International today signed a management agreement for a Grand Hyatt Hotel in the 5 star-plus category. The hotel will take the form of a tower around 150 metres high on the Osloer Strasse in Frankfurt's Europaviertel.

Bernhard H. Hansen, Chief Executive Officer of Vivico, emphasized the following points on signing the agreement: "Vivico is proud of acquiring the highly renowned global operator Hyatt for the prestigious location of Frankfurt and the Europaviertel." Hansen believes Hyatt's investment underscores the quality of the regenerating district and highlights the significance of the Europaviertel for Frankfurt.

"We are delighted that our new hotel will secure a foothold for us in the important banking and conference centre of Frankfurt", said Gebhard Rainer, Managing Director Hyatt International Europe, Africa, Middle East. "Our innovative and modern product which meets the highest international standards is eminently suited to Frankfurt. The Grand Hyatt Frankfurt will form the ideal complement to our existing range of successful hotels in Cologne, Hamburg, Berlin, Mainz, as well as the one due for completion in Düsseldorf in 2010, and will strengthen our position in the German market." To date, the Hyatt Group has only had one premium-brand "Grand Hyatt" hotel in Germany, notably in Berlin.

The conclusion of the agreement was initiated by Viador, a joint venture between the Feuring Group and Vivico, established as recently as 2007. Viador will continue to supervise the project and operations. Vivico will be in charge of constructing the hotel until it is ready for handover in turnkey condition. The next step will be the architectural design; the building application is to be submitted before the end of 2008. The hotel tower is scheduled for completion in 2011/2012.

The tower will cover a gross floor area of approx. 54,300 square metres. Facilities including around 405 rooms, restaurants, bars and a fitness and wellness area put the hotel firmly in the premium category. There are also plans to build a publicly accessible visitor centre offering views of Frankfurt's skyline.

I think the Hyatt deserves an own thread.

Some new Information:

As is have found out from a certain source there have been some changes.
The competition for the design is going into the deciding phase. The competition ist lead by the Viador Group.

The Tower as well as the Hotel will be designed in a luxurious mannor.
The standard rooms will be at least 36m².
As known already the Hotel will have around 405 rooms and suites plus the additional serviced appartements.
The Spa will be more than 1400m².
The Conference Area has about 2600m².

The public "Skybar" and the public Restaurant, formerly known as the visitor center at about 100m, are now located at 150m.

So the Tower should reach the height of 165m which was made public already a few months ago.

Seems they have reduced the height from 150m to 110m. Not so nice!

But I like the architecture. Kohn, Pedersen, Fox (New York) is my favorite design. Looks very elegant. But the other design is not bad either but it is hard to tell what kind of facade it will have.

This is fantastic

I've been waiting for this for quite some time.


I prefer the Kohn Pedersen Fox design, but the 1st one by UN Studios is nice as well - they should take this one for the Güterplatz tower or another one
