Public Car Park in Zollhafen Mainz completed
Mainz, 11 December 2020 – CA Immo has completed the new public car park in the Mainz district development Zollhafen Mainz and opened it today with PMG Parken in Mainz GmbH and Mainz Regional Traffic Head Katrin Eder. The approx. 12,400 m² GFA car park offers approx. 400 parking spaces for cars and will be operated by PMG in the future. CA Immo's investment volume runs to some 7.2 million euros.
The public car park is situated in the northern part of Zollhafen Mainz, directly on Inge-Reitz-Strasse near Rheinallee. Mainz Regional Traffic Head Katrin Eder explained during the opening: “Urban quarters are living space for residents. Thanks to the new district car park, fewer cars will park in public areas, which means more room for quality of life. And thanks to pooling in the car park, car traffic in the district will be reduced to a minimum, benefiting pedestrians, cyclists and the environment in equal measure. What’s more, the building is conveniently situated at the edge of the city centre with bus and tram connections and is therefore available to passengers transferring from cars to public transport.”
Matthias Winkelhardt, head of CA Immo Frankfurt adds: “The car park also plays an important role for commercial buildings, such as our ZigZag or the Super 8 Hotel. Companies can rent parking spaces here both for their guests and for employees in the immediate vicinity. In PMG, we have found an experienced partner to operate the car park, one that has already proven its skill with numerous car parks in Mainz.
“We are very glad to be given the chance to operate the largest car park in Zollhafen for CA Immo. Thank you again for this from the bottom of our heart. At the same time, we will also use this chance to implement a new technology here,” said Nils Teske, managing director of PMG. “Of course, our customers can use the ‘Park & Go’ card in this car park as well. But for the first time, we’ve installed a special scanner that will make it possible to scan QR or bar codes.” The technology allows hotels, restaurants or retailers, for example, to send a QR code to guests and customers so that they can enter the car park by holding their smartphones up to the scanner by the entrance barrier. Billing and time logging is handled in the car park, and all discounts are stored there. This makes it possible, say, for retailers to create a whole new form of customer loyalty. There are also plans for a corresponding app. “We can test this technology here in the car park with the adjoining hotels and then retrofit it over time in all the other PMG car parks,” said Teske.
The car park offers a total of around 400 parking spaces across seven parking levels. Further-more, 14 spaces are set up to accommodate charging stations for electric cars.
The architectural design of the car park's façade was the work of YES ARCHITECTURE, Munich. The façade’s structure picks up on the ebb and flow in the movement of the Rhine's water, and the play of colour on the vertical slats reflects the colouration of the neighbouring buildings. The multi-storey car park therefore fits into the urban environment.
CA Immo is also currently working on the office building ZigZag, which is close to the car park and at the edge of the northern port basin with a rental space of around 4,600 m². ZigZag is due to be opened by the end of 2020. A rental agreement was recently concluded here with Verband Pflegehilfe (an elderly care association) for approx. 1,600 m² of rental space (we reported this on 25 November 2020). Furthermore, in a joint venture with UBM Development Deutschland GmbH, CA Immo is currently developing the mixed-use building complex Kaufmannshof with 50 flats and an additional approx. 3,100 m² of office space (completion expected 2022).
