The job of Gateway Gardens Projektentwicklungs-GmbH is to facilitate the marketing process in the best interest of the City of Frankfurt am Main and in the interest of the other partners.
Operating one of the world's major aviation hubs, Fraport AG counts among the leading conglomerates in the international airport business.

More than 500 firms and institutions use the facilities provided by Fraport AG. Roughly 78,000 employees working at Frankfurt Airport make it Germany's largest local place of employment.
As one of Germany's leading owner-operated project development companies, Gross & Partner Grundstücksentwicklungsgesellschaft, concentrates on the development of high-end office, residential, and hospitality properties. Rather than limiting its work to the property as such, Gross & Partner keeps its eye on the overall urban planning idea when realising capital works projects such as Überseequartier, the centrepiece of HafenCity in Hamburg, or Gateway Gardens, the global business village at Frankfurt Airport City.

The city of Frankfurt am Main has been one of Germany's key metropolises since the middle ages. As Europe's leading trade fair location (most notably the auto fair and the book fair), it has always been a city of merchants and bankers. Home to the ECB, and still centrally located along the most important international transportation routes in Central Europe, this city of 700,000 has become a hub within the global economy.
