It is only a short walk to the nearest supermarket, but the next cultural highlight is only a stone’s throw away: 450 apartments and a new creative district are to be built on the site of the Munich municipal utility (SWM) south of Gastig-Sendling. The city council’s planning committee unanimously decided on Wednesday to create a legal framework for the project. An urban planning and landscape planning ideas competition is being advertised for specific designs.
The 38,000 square meter area between Hans-Preisingerstrasse and Schaftlarnstrasse south of the Brudermühl tunnel exit largely belongs to the public utility company. They want to move training buildings, workshops and storage areas to other locations and create space for a “city district”. In the south, 450 apartments are planned according to Sobon principles in buildings with up to eight floors, possibly also with SWM company apartments, while in the north “an attractive mix of culture and creative industries” is to be created.
The Stadtwerk area was a creative quarter for decades before it housed the Isar Philharmonic Hall, adult education center, city library and university for music and theater in the course of the general renovation of Gastig a year earlier. Gasteig-Interim added the suffix HP8 to its name, the abbreviation for the address Hans-Preisinger-Straße 8, which originally referred to the creative and business scene there. Around 70 companies with around 400 employees were involved, from architects to carpenters, from photographers to dancers. Some of these tenants had to move out because Gastig needed their space.
hospitable meanwhile largely unknown
Those who are still there should be able to live: “The aim is to preserve the structures of cultural, creative and commercial use that have grown in the planning area,” says the planning department’s submission. For example, there should be space for creative people and craftsmen on the ground floor areas of the houses along Schäftlarnstrasse. In discussions in the planning committee, Heike Kenz and Alexander Riesel (both CSU) made a strong case for small companies.
Representatives of the town hall coalition received words of praise for the renovation project in the committee. According to Paul Bickelbacher (Greens), this could be the third quarter after the factory and creative quarters in which a mixture of culture, business and life is created. The aim is to create as much affordable housing as possible, stressed Simone Berger (SPD). “For us, it’s about making life possible for bus drivers and tram drivers in the Isar floodplains.”
The big unknown in all planning is the Gastig interim – the question is, for example, what will happen to the Iserphilharmonie when the Philharmoniker no longer need it. That was actually intended as an interim solution, but demolition has been in question for a long time: “In concrete terms, the whereabouts of the concert hall” should be examined and, if necessary, integrated into the urban planning concept. should be done,” explains the planning department.
It is also unclear how long the general renovation of Gasting will take, i.e. how long the VHS, the city library and the company will occupy the northern part of the HP8 site. But because things have to be done quickly, you start at the other end: The new district will be developed from south to north, including a daycare center with four crèches and four kindergarten clusters, specifically geared to the daycare deficit in Sendling. must also be removed. ,
Whether after-school care and primary school locations are sufficient is still being examined, at least with regard to shopping: there will be no large-scale retail trade in the new city quarter, mostly “small addition” offer”. Because the subway station Brudermühlstraße should not have any competition with the “close area center”. This However, supermarket is a ten minute walk away.
