Skyper refers to a three-part building ensemble in the station district of Frankfurt am Main on the corner of Taunusanlage and Taunusstraße . It consists of a neoclassical villa ("Skyper-Villa") from 1915, a 153.8 meter high skyscraper ("Skyper-Hochhaus") and a residential and commercial building ("Skyper-Carré"). The ensemble was created in its current form in the years 2002-04.
The design for the 480 million euro project comes from the Frankfurt architects JSK , which has already been commissioned by Holzmann AG . The architects then implemented their approved design for the general contractor ABG and the new purchaser, DekaBank . They had acquired the building for an open-ended property fund from DekaImmobilien and after the building was handed over in 2005, they moved into the lower floors as the main tenant. Well-known tenants are also the Deutsche Bundesbank as the new main tenant (as of August 2014), HSBC and the international investment bank Houlihan Lokey .
The 39-story skyscraper , which ranks 15th in the ranking of the tallest buildings in Germany, rises on a striking, quarter-circle plot, making it an essential part of the Frankfurt skyline . Structurally, it is a reinforced concrete skeleton structure with a glass curtain wall .
The neoclassical listed villa from 1915 is connected to the building to the east by means of a nine-meter-high glass hall. The villa belonged, like the entire area, to the construction company Philipp Holzmann and was the seat of the headquarters and the board of directors. A residential and commercial building with 52 one to three-room apartments and a row of shops on the ground floor completes the building ensemble.
