Listed elements adorn the property

Statues enthroned on consoles, designed by the Düsseldorf sculptor Erich Kuhn, decorate the neoclassical property. The portal shows a monumentalized pillar construction spanning two storeys. Five console heads are attached to the southern axis of the building, each marking a new floor. In the representative building, which also impresses with its listed building components on the inside, the AOK insurance company uses office space of more than 10,000 m². A comprehensive revitalization is planned for the building – the building application for this was submitted in February 2023. The start of the full refurbishment is planned from Q4 2024 after the existing tenant has moved out. In the course of the renovation work, the building will be sustainably refurbished in terms of energy and equipped with smart technologies. The office floors will be refurbished from the core, while individual landmarked room structures and building components will be preserved. The result will be high-quality boutique offices offering generous interior design and state-of-the-art digital infrastructure. The office spaces will be equipped with mechanical ventilation and heating/cooling ceiling sails. Both DGNB certification (gold) and EU taxonomy compliance are being sought.
