The Squaire

Germany, Frankfurt


Yuanda’s first major project in Germany; in a vertical orientation, The Squaire would be the tallest building in Europe by far!


“The Squaire” is a 660 m long, 65m wide and 45m high office building with 9 storeys, located right next to Frankfurt Airport. Based on plans of the architectural office JSK Architekten, building work began in November 2006 on this complex, which was initially called the Airrail Center Frankfurt.

The foundation stone ceremony took place on 1st March 2007 and the building was finally finished in the year 2011, when additional areas for offices, hotels and retail shops were added via the Fernbahnhof (railway station for long distance trains) at Frankfurt Airport.

Thanks to a connecting entrance, The Squaire is directly linked to Terminal 1 of the airport.

With an overall rental space of 140.000 m², “The Squaire” is the largest office complex in Germany. It is one of only four buildings in German to have its own postcode (60600). The building complex won the MIPIM Award in the category Best Office & Business Development.


The first major project of Yuanda in Germany. IVG Immobilien AG in Bonn is the main investor for the project. At the time of award, it has been completely designed and managed by our Parent Company, CNYD, whilst Yuanda Germany project-managed the installation package.

No Main contractor has been involved.

With an excellent team of consultants and site managers from both Germany and China, this project became a great success for Yuanda and is still recognised as a milestone in our company’s development and history.
