(Munich/Frankfurt am Main, July 13, 2022) With CANYON, CV Real Estate AG is developing a groundbreaking landmark in the middle of Frankfurt's banking district that is consistently geared to the future in all areas. At the "Frankfurt meets CANYON" event, the project development and investment company from Munich now presented details of its premium office property, which smartly combines sustainability, new work, innovative strength and exciting architecture. Christian Vogrincic, board member and CEO of CV Real Estate AG: "As the new, green heart of the Central Business District, CANYON symbolizes the future. We are pleased about the great interest in our special project, with which we will permanently change the face of the banking district in a prominent location." Numerous guests from business, politics and the media were able to get a personal idea of what it will be like in the future at this location during a tour of the existing property. But CV Real Estate AG is also committed to the future of Frankfurt in other ways: "We feel a strong connection to the city of Frankfurt am Main and it is a matter close to our hearts to support where help is most urgently needed. That's why we are donating a total of 20,000 euros to the Arche Kinderstiftung in Frankfurt and to Hilfe für krebskranke Kinder Frankfurt e. V. We hope this will go some way to improving the future prospects of disadvantaged children in Frankfurt."
Karin Reinhold-Kranz, Chairwoman of the Board of the association Hilfe für krebskranke Kinder Frankfurt e.V., at the symbolic presentation of the donation check: "We are extremely grateful and pleased about this generous donation from CV Real Estate AG. It helps us to support affected families, above all, quickly and unbureaucratically. Help - heal - research. These are our three pillars. Such generous donations help us to improve the chances of healing for children with cancer and give them a chance of a future without long-term consequences." Daniel Schröder, Head of the Arche Kinderstiftung in Frankfurt: "We would like to express our sincere thanks for this great commitment, which enables us to take a big step forward in our efforts to help children on the margins of society. Donations like those from CV Real Estate AG support us in our initiative against social exclusion and child poverty here in Frankfurt."
Business goes where nature grows
CANYON is Frankfurt's first business ensemble that consistently relies on the power of nature while being low-emission and CO2-absorbing. Christian Vogrincic: "We are reducing CO2 greenhouse gas emissions by 27% compared to the requirement value for new buildings. At the same time, the green facades and planted roof gardens absorb carbon dioxide and nitrogen oxides. With CANYON, we are thus launching a forward-looking project that not only reduces emissions, but also absorbs them at the same time." Annually, up to 2,000 kg of CO2 can be absorbed and nitrogen oxides can be reduced by up to 40% through the building's natural design in this way. In addition, the green roof structures and the green façade lead to energy savings of around 10% and even to an active reduction in particulate matter of around 10 to 30%.
Natural air conditioning and heat shield for Frankfurt
The Landmark's green roof gardens also serve as a water reservoir, which has a positive effect on the surrounding area, especially in the hot summer months. "With a daily water evaporation of two liters per square meter, we can not only increase the humidity, but at the same time act on the ambient temperature, lowering it by two to three degrees Celsius," says the CEO. CANYON thus literally forms a heat shield and acts like a natural air conditioning system for Frankfurt's Central Business District - and that in turn has a positive effect not only on the temperature but also on the future working climate in the premium office property. After all, elements and a high proportion of greenery like those in CANYON have proven positive effects on well-being, including that of the people who will be able to enjoy completely new working environments in this innovative ensemble.
