Start of construction and 90 percent occupancy rate for new “Food Garden” in the Main-Taunus-Zentrum

Start of construction and strong letting success for the new “Food Garden” in the Main-Taunus-Zentrum: In November, construction work began on the new highlight in the middle of the shopping center – a high-quality and varied range of restaurants with five free-standing restaurant buildings, partly covered and partly open terraces, green outdoor areas and sophisticated architecture. The opening is planned for spring 2025.

The letting of the new restaurant space has already progressed successfully: 90 percent of the new space has been let and the lease for the last available space is about to be signed. Well-known concepts such as the restaurant concept “Alex”, the pizza and pasta concept “L’Osteria” and the steakhouse concept “The Ash” have been secured as new anchor tenants in the gastronomy sector. Other well-known regional concepts will complement the high-quality tenant line-up and will be introduced in the coming months.

The new “Food Garden” is being built on an area of around 9,000 sq m and with a total rental area of 4,000 sq m in place of a former department store building. The aim of the strategic further development of the center is to supplement the high-quality tenant mix with further highlights and an extensive range of food outlets, thereby further increasing the quality of stay and length of stay in the Main-Taunus-Zentrum.

Deutsche EuroShop and a closed-end real estate fund are investing around 28 million euros in the project as owners. ECE Marketplaces, which is also responsible for the operation and leasing of the center, is responsible for the planning and implementation.

Opened in 1964, the Main-Taunus-Zentrum is one of the largest and highest-turnover shopping centers in Germany. The shopping center is fully let and has 170 stores on a sales area of over 90,000 sq m, including concepts such as Apple, Anson’s, Breuninger, Hollister and Zara as well as a multiplex cinema.
