Frankfurt Airport, Germany – Commercial planning for the newly developed Terminal 1 B Pier Halls for Schengen and Non-Schengen. Client: Fraport AG, Infrastructure department.


Frankfurt Airport (72 mmpa) will drastically redevelop its T1 B-Pier and centralise its B-security processor. With that, it creates the opportunity for two large, open, light central market squares (for Schengen and Non-Schengen). Market Square / Johan Schölvinck was invited to provide a commercial plan for both halls including a concession plan, tenant mix, category split, and sales and concession fee forecast. Also to provide benchmarks and inspiration thinking ‘outside the box’ with good local Frankfurt flavour and sense of place, dynamic new retail and F&B concepts and other modern ideas to Fraport. September 2019 – now.
