Becken celebrates topping-out ceremony for the Düsseldorf "Infinity Office" project
  • Multi-tenant office building with around 20,500 square metres of lettable space
  • Completion of construction planned for autumn 2019
  • The anchor tenant is Bankhaus Lampe

Hamburg, 6 December 2018 - Yesterday, the German project developer Becken celebrated the topping-out ceremony for the Düsseldorf "Infinity Office" project together with representatives of the partners involved in the project and the future anchor tenant Bankhaus Lampe. On the almost 8,000 square metre site on Kennedydamm, Becken is building a high-quality office property with a rental area of approximately 20,500 square metres including underground car park by autumn 2019.

Dieter Becken, Managing Partner of Becken Holding GmbH, says: "I am delighted that the Infinity Office, our first project in Düsseldorf, has an occupancy rate of around 85 percent even one year before completion. This shows the attractiveness of the location and encourages us in the quality of our projects". As general contractor, Gustav Epple Bauunternehmung GmbH is building the project. Its managing partner Götz Ellinger says: "The Infinity Office is the first property that we are realising for Becken as general contractor and forms the basis for further joint projects throughout Germany. In the context of our cooperation we particularly appreciate the trusting and above all professional way of dealing with each other.
In addition to Bankhaus Lampe, which as anchor tenant will use around 70 percent of the future rental space, SUMITOMO DEUTSCHLAND GmbH has leased around 15 percent of the space. At the end of August, Becken contractually secured the sale of the "Infinity Office" to DIC Asset AG as part of a forward deal.

The multi-tenant office property designed by pinkarchitektur allows for both mixed office and open office concepts. The special feature of the building results from the sophisticated design of the facing façade and the shape of the structure as a horizontal figure of eight. The property has six upper floors in the northern and five upper floors in the southern part of the building. A total of 265 underground parking spaces are available in the two basement levels. A roof terrace of around 500 square metres and two green inner courtyards increase the quality of stay for future office users and create oases of peace.
