The highest degree at Gateway Gardens

Alpha Rotex

Since August 2013, DB Schenker has been centring its managerial functions at Gateway Gardens at Frankfurt Airport, which houses the world’s second largest logistics company in the 16-storey ALPHA ROTEX – a prominent landmark building soaring to a height of 68 m.

 

The internationally renowned architecture firm Jo. Franzke designed the ALPHA ROTEX based on a rounded triangular floor plan. Each wing revolves around the building’s core, alternating their orientation from the eighth floor up using the principle of point reflection. This creates a unique shape, different to the conventional building block.

All levels provide access to the 30-metre-high conservatories, with sweeping views of the skyline, airfield and central park of Gateway Gardens.
