Project DescriptionFROM THE ARCHITECTS:
MVRDV and morePlatz were chosen winner of the international competition for two office buildings of in total 12.000 m² pioneering the transformation of Mainz’ former harbour Zollhafen. The ensemble consists of an elongated block of five storeys and an eleven-storey high-rise tower creating a landmark at the waterfront. “Hafenspitze” is being developed by CA Immo Deutschland. Construction start is envisioned for autumn 2015.
Situated at the far northern end of the harbour basin, “Hafenspitze” will be realised as the pioneer project of this large scale transformation overlooking the new development around the water. The winning design proposed to adjust the masterplan resulting in two distinct volumes which form an ensemble of 12.000 m2 with a public plaza at its centre. An eleven-storey high-rise office tower creates a landmark at the waterfront, while an elongated block over five storeys with a roof garden closes the plaza at the street side.
