south one Former corporate headquarters to become Germany’s most southerly multi-storey apartment building

Almost inconceivable: for decades, mile-wide views over town and country were either the privilege of executive suites or a feature of unpopular commuter towns in remote suburbs. But in Germany in the last few years, living in high-rise buildings is again being discussed and sought after as a genuine alternative to the lack of prospects of ground sealing in urban development areas.

The revitalisation of the former Siemens headquarters in Munich’s Obersendling district, is therefore a ground-breaking project in more ways than one – sober-looking offices are to be turned into around 310 attractive apartments in south one, Germany’s most southerly high-rise apartment building.
