In an exposed location in downtown Cologne, ECE is developing the MesseCity Cologne together with STRABAG. This architecturally sophisticated project comprises office buildings, hotels, a cinema, culinary and event facilities distributed on six individual buildings. The functional core is the "trade fair balcony" between the building sites that constitutes the hinge on the foot route from the Messe-Deutz railway station to the southern trade fair entrance. The spacious open area with a view to the Cathedral is at the same time the heart of the new quarter. The special highlight is the imposing entrance to the outside with a staircase leading to the trade fair, whose interior is walkable and can be experienced as event location. Changing uses for events, musicals, and congresses are planned.

The premises offer an optimal connection to the most important transportation hubs in immediate proximity to Cologne's historical center. The project stands for innovative and efficient use of natural resources: Through high-level sustainable building, the DGNB gold certificate for the MesseCity Cologne is aimed for.
