Over the coming years the Mörsenbroicher Ei, one of Dusseldorf’s major traffic junctions, will see the construction of the YRDS office tower, a new high-rise development and counterpart to the ARAG Tower, located directly opposite, with which it will form a new gateway to the city.
With its varying building heights, the 37,000m² complex will form a link between the existing high-rise buildings and the residential development to the north west. A seven-storey cut-out in the high-rise facade will open sightlines into the building from the adjacent landscaped public space and link it via an impressive, almost 30m-high lobby to the luxuriantly landscaped interior courtyard beyond. The building will offer a public restaurant positioned on the groundfloor and a 16th-floor conferencing and events space in the form of six-metre-high rooms with spacious terrace and a view over the city. YRDS will be completed as a Smart Building.
