Public space and transportation

Design of public spaces

A concept has been devised for the surfaces of the pathways and squares that takes into account both existing materials used nearby and the investor’s design wishes. The construction work on the buildings meant that the developer had to replace the pathways on site. The surface design of the public areas takes its cue from the City of Frankfurt’s standards in this regard. Brownish red paving has been laid in Neue Mainzer Straße and along the further course of the street, and in Kaiserstraße. In Weissfrauenstraße anthracite-colored paving will be used as is to be found already in Braubachstraße. Both forms of paving will be laid in diagonal lines using stones sized 40 x 40 cm. Inside the quarter, primarily bright paving will be deployed, alternating with narrow black strips. The plan is for darker paving in the form of a ‘carpet’ in the Arcades. On the plaza between Patio and WinX there will be an expanse of water. The deck of Alte Mainzer Gasse will be dark in color.

Transport links and underground car park

For pedestrians and cyclists, the opening of the ensemble by the new construction work creates new and appealing paths and links. In future you will, if coming from the direction of downtown be able to cut diagonally across the MainTor grounds to reach Sachsenhausen via the Untermainbrücke. Vehicles have to date only been able to access the complex centrally via Seckbächer Gasse, which was also the location of the underground car park. In future four underground car parks beneath the main construction areas will have decentral access routes. They are in part interconnected. In total, there will be 695 parking spaces, of which 273 are assigned to the apartments. 50 parking spaces will be available for public use during week days from 6 p.m. and otherwise round-the-clock to provide additional parking spaces for visitors to cultural institutions in the immediate vicinity.
