Bryan Cave Leighton Paisner (BCLP) advised on the completion of a three-figure million mezzanine loan to finance the development of the T1 tower. The landmark high-rise office building will be constructed in central Frankfurt by Groß & Partner Grundstücksentwicklungsgesellschaft mbH (Groß & Partner).

Scheduled for completion in 2024, the T1 is part of the larger “FOUR” project set to transform the central banking district site into a lively urban, mixed-use precinct. The 228-metre tower, the tallest of four in the development and one of the tallest towers in Frankfurt, will comprise 55 floors and almost 75,000 square metres of mixed-use office, retail and amenity space including restaurants, a gym, a kindergarten as well as provision for bicycles and car parking.

Dr Thomas Prüm who led the BCLP team on the transaction said: “It has been a privilege to assist on this landmark transaction, which combines a variety of innovative features. We are proud of our work on innovative financing elements for such a landmark development. Project FOUR will be an important element of the new banking district in Frankfurt.”
