The project is found at a highly visible location in a busy area of Leopoldstraße. The new building contains a retail property that is split into two attractive and spacious shop units.
The building has four aboveground and two underground floors that are used by the Esprit and Tengelmann chains. Deutsche Bank has opened a consulting centre on two of the floors.
Even though extensive changes from the tenants had to be incorporated during the construction, WSP succeeded in adhering to the ambitious cost and deadline specifications. Following complex, inner-city excavation of the building pit, the construction was completed within eleven months and transferred to the tenants.
