Bethmann Bank and ABN AMRO to be anchor tenants in Marienforum

On behalf of Perella Weinberg Real Estate Fund II LP (PWREF II), project developer Pecan Development has signed a long-term rental agreement with ABN AMRO / Bethmann Bank for premises covering approx. 8,000 square meters in Marienforum. This means that around 70% of the available office space in Marienforum has now been allocated to tenants. The company, one of the leading providers of private banking services in Germany, will be relocating to the striking building at the heart of Frankfurt’s banking district in the first quarter of 2019. In future, ABN AMRO / Bethmann Bank will be bringing together its various business units in Frankfurt under a single roof at the new HQ at Mainzer Landstrasse 1. Alongside Bethmann Bank’s private banking arm, the units include its corporate banking services, where business is growing considerably.

The 40-meter high, 10-story Marienforum is part of the office ensemble at Marieninsel, which also includes the approx. 155-meter high Marienturm and the new public Marienplatz plaza, which features hospitality and retail outlets.

Markus Brod, Managing Partmer at Pecan Development, says he feels the new tenant confirms the ensemble’s high profile: “Marienforum enables ABN AMRO / Bethmann Bank to take the long tradition of a private bank into the future in a state-of-the-art, stimulating working environment. The facilities we are offering at Marieninsel in the form of an in-house café, restaurant, nursery and fitness center will meet future users’ requirements in an aesthetically sophisticated and pleasant setting. We are delighted that in ABN AMRO/Bethmann Bank we have attracted yet another renowned tenant to the two buildings in this prominent location.
