Pro­ject Man­age­ment 
St. Kath­ar­inen- and Weiß­frauen­stift

Neubau Schwarzburgstraße_01
Frankfurt am Main
St. Katharinen- and Weißfrauenstift

The St. Kath­ar­inen- und Weiß­frauen­stift senior cit­izens res­id­ence - build in 1970 - is loc­ated in an inner-city dis­trict of Frank­furt am Main. The decision to rebuild the com­plex was based on the pre­vi­ous build­ing mater­ial, build­ing tech­no­logy and layout, which do not comply with future require­ments and stand­ards of retire­ment homes. There­fore, the owner decided to rebuild the whole build­ing com­plex on the exist­ing site.

The demoli­tion and dis­mant­ling of the exist­ing build­ing was com­pleted at the end of 2018, the con­struc­tion of the new res­id­en­tial com­plex star­ted in Janu­ary 2019 and was suc­cess­fully com­pleted in August 2020 after one and a half years of con­struc­tion with the turn­key han­dover of the new build­ing to the owner.

The new build­ing has a divided struc­ture with six floors plus attic at the corner Schwar­zburgstraße/ Spohr­straße and 8 floors in the course of Schwar­zburgstraße. In total, 31 bar­rier-free apart­ments for eld­erly women living on their own, as well as ground-floor areas for common use, will be built.

Addi­tion­ally, PRO­PRO­JEKT coordin­ated the ten­der­ing pro­cess for the plan­ning and super­vi­sion of the demoli­tion of the exist­ing build­ing.
