In 2018, house prices in Frankfurt soared by 15% as people flocked to this prosperous, cosmopolitan city. In fact, more than €15.3 billion of property was sold that year, making it the busiest property market of any German city. But the best news is that there’s more to come, including a premium property development that will redefine one of the city’s central quarters: ONE FORTY WEST.
Frankfurt is a renowned city of commerce. It hosts a globally significant airport hub, the world’s largest internet node and the HQ of the European Central Bank, alongside the offices of almost 200 banks and numerous international businesses. Unemployment has fallen for 12 years in a row, 28% of full-time workers are university educated and 30% are internationals. This is what makes the city so productive, dynamic and exciting.
A combination of rich history and fertile present also merge to deliver a superb range of amenities. Frankfurt’s many museums sit along the embankment of the River Main, boasting a range of exhibits from ancient to modern. Meanwhile more active residents can enjoy the view of the museums while indulging in water sports.
Also on view are around 100 skyscrapers, most of which rise from the city’s famous Westend district. Neighbouring this architectural marvel is the vibrant Bockenheim district. It’s a space for exciting new bars and restaurants, and home to artists and creatives – perhaps because it's bordered by the Goethe University, Senckenberg Museum and Frankfurt Trade Fair, drawing people from all walks of life.
At the confluence of Westend and Bockenheim is the city’s newest district: Senckenberg Quartier. Located beside the historic Senckenberg Museum, the area is home to the new residential tower ONE FORTY WEST. This breathtaking new building contains a four-star-plus hotel topped by exclusive high-altitude apartments. Each one has a clear view of the city skyline and beyond, plus access to all the culture, cuisine and nightclubs of Frankfurt.
Arresting staggered balconies give the property a dynamism that suits its host city, making it stand out from rival towers. It also shapes the interior of its apartments. Almost every one has a distinct floor plan, its own balcony, full-height panoramic windows and an open-plan layout. Apartments are also smart from the start: heating, lighting, cooling and ventilation are practically invisible and can be controlled remotely.
Because the building also hosts a luxury hotel, apartment residents may access exclusive services. A 24/7 concierge can assist with anything you need – from ironing to booking theatre tickets. The hotel also means on-site accommodation for guests and business associates, fine dining in the signature restaurant and cocktails or coffee in the sky bar. You can even store your favourite vintage at optimum conditions in the hotel’s wine cellar. And you can be sure of complete privacy, since ONE FORTY WEST apartments are accessed via a residents-only lobby.
Apartments are available in three sizes: compact apartments/mini penthouses (approx. 50 square metres), medium-sized apartments (70–100 square metres) and large apartments (up to 137 square metres). This makes them ideally suited for a range of residents, from well-travelled businessmen seeking a city pad close to the office to young urban professionals keen to be close to the action.
