Owned by Covivio since 2020, ICON is one of Düsseldorf’s iconic architectural landmarks. Build in the 1970s, this office building is currently undergoing a facelift in order to house shops as well as offices offering a flexible working environment, concierge services, a gym, meeting rooms and green outdoor spaces promoting encounters and relaxation.

We are going to keep ICON’s emblematic profile while transforming the interior completely in order to create a state-of-the-art, multi-purpose building. The ground floor shops will give the district a new lease of life. As for the office section, spaces will be rethought in keeping with new work practices with a strong focus on collective spaces and services. The renovation has also been designed in accordance with a virtuous, sustainable environmental approach.

Virtuous building

The renovation was carried out with a view to reducing ICON’s carbon footprint, including:

  • rooftop solar panels
  • efficient technical systems optimised via an energy management system
  • greening of courtyards and interior spaces
  • strong focus on biodiversity

Promoting green transport

ICON promotes green transport in order to offer a sustainable and vibrant environment suited to multiple purposes:

  • public transport right in front of the building
  • 982 parking spaces including electrical vehicle charging stations
  • bicycle parking facilities with charging stations for e-bikes


  • WiredScore Platinum
  • DGNB Gold (pending)

Flexibility is key

More flexible, more services, including both collective and individual spaces: workspace expectations have changed significantly over the last few years. Which is why ICON tenants can choose Covivio’s new “BU” modular space concept featuring freely configurable work areas, high-quality design and sustainable materials. New tenants will be able to call on Covivio to design the layout and furnishing of their spaces.

ICON in 3 words


Instantly recognisable for its 1970s architecture, the building is a prominent landmark on the Düsseldorf skyline.


ICON offers maximum workspace flexibility via its furnished and fitted office offering.


The ICON renovation aims to be sustainable in terms of materials, tools and facilities.
