Optima-Aegidius purchases building complex for loft offices in Munich from ISARIA Wohnbau AG

  • 7,400 m² of listed, historic conversion space

  • Part of the Diamaltpark district development in Munich with 721 residential units

Munich, November 20, 2019: The Optima-Aegidius-Group has purchased property encompassing approximately 7,400 square meters of gross floor area in Munich-Allach from ISARIA Wohnbau. Conversion of the historic baking powder and malt facilities on the former Diamalt grounds into loft offices is set to begin in early 2020. It will also see the creation of 25 apartments and 91 parking spaces for the employees of the future loft tenants.

Additional features include a public square, a daycare center that will be devolved to the City of Munich and, in a separate production tract, a community room, which will serve as a central meeting point for residents.

The Optima-Aegidius-Group is investing around 40 million euros into the project, which will go by the name “The Malt.” Office space is expected to be offered starting at 20 euros per square meter.

“Allach isn’t necessarily at the center of Munich’s office market, but the uniqueness of this historic industrial site with ceilings up to six meters high and an unbeatable view of the Alps is the ideal place for innovative companies looking to offer their employees something extraordinary and creative with an industrial charm,” say the Laub brothers, who are investing on behalf of the Optima-Aegidius-Group.

“The loft offices and condominiums planned are an excellent addition to the Diamaltpark grounds. They truly underscore the appeal of this district,” explains Gerhard Wirth, COO of ISARIA Wohnbau AG.

ISARIA Wohnbau is currently constructing approximately 50,000 square meters of residential space comprising around 700 residential units on the part of the Diamaltpark grounds that has not been sold.
