ONE FORTY WEST

The Senckenberg Quarter is located between the Frankfurt districts of Bockenheim and Westend. cyrus moser was invited to participate in the international competition for the new development and came out on top. The "combination of striking cubature and simple elegance in conjunction with high urban development quality" convinced the awarding authorities.
The quarter opens up to the adjacent neighborhood. Public space is created where people meet and enjoy spending time. Four elements come together to form an ensemble: Hybrid high-rise, office tower, another office building and a daycare center.
The highlight: the 145-meter-high ONE FORTY WEST tower. With its lively facade, it adds an eye-catching silhouette to the Frankfurt skyline. Inside, it carries the city into the vertical - residential, hotel and gastronomy under one roof.
The first floor houses lobbies and a restaurant, while floors 2-23 house a hotel. The Skybar with its spectacular terrace on the 15th floor is open to the public. From a height of 84 meters, the apartments begin (24th-40th floors).
Balconies stretch around the tower in a three-kilometer-long upward-striving ribbon. Because of their staggered arrangement, almost every apartment has a different floor plan. Each is sophisticatedly furnished and offers unique views with floor-to-ceiling windows.

Die gestaltprägenden Balkone ziehen sich wie ein aufwärtsstrebendes Band um den Turm. Durch ihre versetzte Anordnung haben alle Wohneinheiten einen oder sogar mehrere Balkone und nahezu alle Wohnungen einen anderen Grundriss. Jede für sich einmalig.
