The Frankfurt developer Max Baum Immobilien and the investment company Competo Capital Partners, Munich, purchased a site in the Frankfurt banking district that was then occupied by an office building from the Sixties. The new building, approx. 40,000 sq ft plus underground car parking, was designed to the precise requirements of its future tenants from the financial services industries. Each floor can be divided into units ranging from 2,000 sq ft up to 8,000 sq ft. Apart from the high quality and flexible design of the offices and communal parts it is the building’s natural stone facade that has turned FortySeven & Co. into a landmark building in Frankfurt’s contemporary built landscape. Solid natural stone elements, each up to 800 kg heavy and milled by computerized machinery, frame the 64 large scale square windows.
FortySeven & Co. has been awarded the German Natural Stone Prize, 2015, and gained the distinction "Winning Product“ at the Iconic Award, 2015.
