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.
In Obersendling with excellent infrastructure
76 metres high, 22 storeys
Apartments, commercial units and daycare facilities are planned
Less than 5 minutes walk to the U and S Bahn
The area around the high-rise building at Baierbrunner Strasse 54 provides excellent infrastructure. Future building residents will find all the essentials such as supermarkets, restaurants, schools and childcare centres in the immediate vicinity.
The Siemenswerke S Bahn station is within walking distance, journey time to Munich Hauptbahnhof is just 14 minutes.
