- Building permit granted for the conversion of a former office building

- 395 furnished micro-apartments to be created as part of an innovative living concept for service sector employees

- Construction scheduled for completion in summer 2020


Frankfurt/Main, 10 July 2019: EVANGroup plc ("EVAN") (ISIN DE000A19L426 / WKN A19L42) can begin its conversion of the "Lyoner Straße" property in Frankfurt's Niederrad district into a residential complex containing micro-apartments. Due to the building's listed façade, it has taken an unusually long time for development approval to be granted in order to convert the ten-floor former office building dating from the 1970s. Other procedures that were required for the repurposing of the building also contributed to the delay. Despite the hold-up, EVAN is sticking to its existing timetable and expects the construction project to be completed in summer 2020. The sum invested amounts to more than EUR 55 million.

395 micro-apartments between just under 19 m² and around 32 m² are planned within a total floor area of 20,000 m² and a living space covering approximately 8,820 m². As part of EVAN's livinit concept, the offer is primarily aimed at employers in the hotel and catering industry as well as other service sector segments who can use the facilities to accommodate their employees and thus enhance their attractiveness as employers. The cooperation partner for the project is the Rhine-Main District Association of DEHOGA Hesse. The monthly rent is planned to start at EUR 590 and range upwards depending upon the size of the apartment. Each unit will have its own kitchenette and bathroom and will be fully furnished, even to the extent of including items such as crockery and bed linen.

"The granting of permission for the conversion is a milestone for us because we couldn't simply demolish the old building and erect a new one owing to the preservation order. Our experience with the digital modelling process has helped us with the structural analysis, which enables us to set new standards in project planning before the start of construction. As we already did in a different project, we have made use of the very latest digital Building Information Modelling (BIM) process," explains Dr Michael Nave, Director and CEO of EVANGroup. "The building has already been completely gutted. The next task is to carry out preparatory measures for the extensive renovation before we then convert this extensive building as it stands into attractive living space. It is important to us that the future residents feel comfortable and enjoy living there. That's why we asked them about their specific needs at an early stage and included such considerations in our planning right from the start."

An area of 1,600 m² on the ground floor is earmarked for appropriate supply and service facilities. With this project EVAN is complementing the infrastructure offers available in the district and revitalising the former "Office Town" vicinity, which is increasingly turning into a residential quarter. "We are registering a high demand for our commercial premises," Nave points out. He adds: "We are engaged in intensive negotiations with interesting groups and individuals, which are gradually reaching a conclusion. Here, too, the needs of our target groups have top priority as far as we are concerned."
