Sustainable living on the Rhine - in Mainz Neustadt
Living on the Rhine, in the immediate vicinity of lively Mainzer Neustadt: The Flößerhof on a peninsula at the Mainzer Zollhafen offers new, urban living space far away from the conventional forms of big city living. The architecture by blauraum architects is rounded off by high sustainability standards: Energy-efficient facades and green roofs promote climate-friendly building operation.

Mayor Michael Ebling is delighted with the forward-looking living space in the Zollhafen district development: “The residential ensemble being created here with its diverse living concepts for young and old, the high level of energy efficiency and the pedestrian and bicycle-friendly planning is a successful example of the creation of sustainable and lively living space in the city."

Werner Huber, Managing Director of UBM Development, says: "The Flößerhof not only meets high sustainability standards, with its special location on the water and its green courtyard concept, it also ensures an exceptional quality of stay and quality of life in the private and public areas."

The concept of the Flößerhof, which is consistently geared towards sustainability, is also reflected in the pre-installation of e-charging stations for the 74 car parking space in the in-house underground car park and in the 92 bicycle parking spaces that are also located here. There are also 60 additional bicycle parking spaces in the outdoor area of ​​the ensemble.

For Christoph Jakoby, Head of Development CA Immo Frankfurt, who is responsible for the district development in the Zollhafen together with Stadtwerke Mainz AG, the Flößerhof fits perfectly into the new Zollhafen: "The Zollhafen combines urban, creative life and work with the special quality of stay at the Water. The living concept of the Flößerhof, in which singles, couples and families find a natural, sustainable and barrier-free living comfort, complements the mixed-use quarter very harmoniously and contributes to the further revitalization of the harbor island.

Turgut Tekin, Head of the Implenia Hochbau GmbH branch, adds: "With durable materials, green roofs and the facade made of classic solid stone outer shell, which also meets modern energy requirements, we are making an active contribution to the conservation of resources. The construction of the Flößerhof is making great strides. We are happy about this milestone!”
