Kallmorgen Tower Hamburg: Ein radikal moderner Klassiker SPACES eröffnet in der Hochhaus-Ikone modernes Coworking-Center

Hamburg, 16 January 2018. For months now, the people of Hamburg have been witnessing the changes to the striking high-rise building at Willy-Brandt-Str. 23: Kallmorgen Tower, an office building constructed in 1968 for IBM and inspired by a Hollerith punch card, is currently being gutted and completely renovated by the real estate project devel­opment company QUEST Investment Partners. The tenant has now been deter­mined: starting in mid-2018, SPACES will offer creative profes­sionals, start-ups, project teams and freelancers modern workplaces, office and conference rooms, along with a range of other services in an inspiring atmos­phere. With an area of around 7,500 m², Kallmorgen Tower will be one of the largest co-working centres in Germany and the largest centre operated by Regus in the country. The office sizes range from 15 to 450 m². “We see great potential in Hamburg, not least because the start-up scene is currently growing tremen­dously. The conference floor is located on the 16th floor and boasts spectacular views of Hamburg and the Elbphil­har­monie. These premises can also be rented by third parties on an hourly basis,” says Daniel C. Grimm, Devel­opment Director Germany at SPACES operator Regus. Regus, the global market leader for flexible office solutions, operates around 3,300 business centres in 120 countries, 101 of them in Germany.

QUEST Investment Partners erwarb das von dem Hamburger Architekten Werner Kallmorgen entworfene siebzehn-geschossige Gebäude im Jahr 2016. Theja Geyer, geschäfts­führender Gesellschafter von QUEST: „Kallmorgen war ein Vordenker. 1968 wirkte sein Bau geradezu futur­is­tisch, heute ist er ein Klassiker. Spannend ist, dass sich die Zukun­ft­sori­en­tiertheit des Gebäudes nun mit der modernsten aller Büronutzungs­formen wiederholt: dem Coworking-Center.“ Seit Anfang 2017 ist QUEST dabei, das denkmalgeschützte Haus durch aufwändige bauliche Maßnahmen wieder auf das ursprüngliche, von Kallmorgen konzip­ierte Fassadenkonzept zurück­zuführen. Die Montage der neuen Außen­fassade begann im September.

Inter­essierte Bürger und Architek­turlieb­haber erhalten auf einer eigens eingerichteten Website spannende Einblicke in den Baufortschritt. Zahlreiche Fotos dokumen­tieren die Fertig­stellung der neuen und alten Hamburger Stilikone: http://www.kallmorgen-tower.de/
