The airport itself is growing: it acquired a new landing runway just a few years ago, and work to build a third terminal has already begun. Also, and especially, the Airport City is expanding into more commercial districts with many attractive real estate offerings.
The new Runway Northwest was inaugurated on October 21, 2011. Together with the planned third terminal and the new A380 maintenance base, it meets the prerequisites for Frankfurt Airport to keep pace with growing aviation volumes on a long-term basis. Soon 88 million passengers a year will be able to land, depart, and transfer in Frankfurt. Terminals 1 and 2 are also being modernized while doubling the retail offerings there to create an even more varied ambiance for passengers and employees. A planned expansion of the CargoCity South of the airport will cover another 27 hectares. This will provide plenty of room for cargo specialists to grow with the site.
Airport City Projects
Around the airport, space is available to meet every need. All of the development projects include offices to accommodate a wide range of wishes, each with its own special character:
• The unique architecture of THE SQUAIRE is a new hallmark of the Airport City. This premium property offers an exclusive working environment with seminar rooms, shops, restaurants, and two Hilton hotels.
• Not far from there, with convenient access to central Frankfurt and the terminals, the new Gateway Gardens district is enriching the eastern part of the Airport City with lively urbanity amid relaxing greenery.
• The Mönchhof Site in the northwest of the Airport City is becoming the Rhine-Main region's largest contiguous commercial park for logistics companies, airport-related businesses, and retail outlets.
