The B&L Group has been successfully involved in the development of, investment in and management of high-quality real estate for 50 years. As a specialist in shop, office and residential properties and in specialist properties such as hotels, boarding houses and multi-storey car parks, the B&L Group is one of the first ports of call throughout Germany for owners, investors and tenants.
The eight-member jury for the architectural competition for the development of "Baufeld Nord" of the Hafenpark Quartier in Frankfurt's Ostend district, chaired by Prof. Zvonko Turkali from Frankfurt am Main, decided in favour of the design by the architectural firm Meixner Schlüter Wendt, also from Frankfurt am Main.
Two third prize-winners, KCAP Kees Christiaanse from Rotterdam/Zurich and Holger Meyer Architektur from Frankfurt, followed. In addition, two recognitions were awarded to the offices CF MØller from Berlin and KBNK Architekten from Hamburg. A total of nine offices took part in the architectural competition.
The B&L Group and the Bautzen-based construction company OBAG signed the general contractor contract for the hotel project in Weimar last week. This means that the shell construction work can already begin in the course of this month. January 2022 has been agreed as the overall completion date.
A modern boutique hotel with 102 rooms and three shopping units with a total of 300 m² will be built in a prime location in the pedestrian zone, opposite the Schillerhaus. The total gross floor area above ground is 5,000 m².
Europe's largest green façade is complete. More than 30,000 hornbeams stand on the sloping facades and on the roof of Kö-Bogen II in Düsseldorf. The plants have already sprouted and make the façade on Gustaf-Gründgens-Platz facing the theatre look like a green wall. In total, the hedge is about eight kilometers long - a record.
The green façade has been an integral part of the concept for the Kö-Bogen II commercial and office building ensemble designed by Düsseldorf architect Christoph Ingenhoven from the very beginning. The hornbeams are not only an architectural highlight, but also an important factor in climate protection; they fulfil ecological functions and thus contribute to the sustainability of the Kö-Bogen II in the city centre of Düsseldorf.
