How much the Gasteig, the city needs?
After the discussion the past few weeks, the city of Munich could lead to a General renovation of the Gasteig as planned. The SPD, however, preferred a stripped-down basic restoration for the cultural centre. She looks in the upcoming second phase of the process incalculable legal risks, which could lead to court proceedings and delays, and thus to skyrocketing costs. the Heiner Effern and Susanne Hermanski

miss sounds in the past weeks, enough to the Gasteig, now that the city will lead the begun refurbishment but, as planned. The opponents of this Plan - the SPD and the FDP in the city Council increasingly isolated.

the mayor and the Gasteig-Chairman of the Supervisory Board Manuel Pretzl (CSU), "according to the current state of a broad majority," the record in the first start-up failed procurement procedures and lead to a successful end. In addition to the CSU and the Greens, the Bavaria party, ÖDP, Linke and the Free voters for the General renovation. Thus the camp of the supporters of votes at least 49, if the city Council at its next full meeting on 20. Of March we have to vote. That is eight more than is necessary.

After the legal breakdown in the allocation and cancellation in January, the centre of weeks of excitement and uncertainty followed for the culture. The almost half a billion Euro of General renovation was on the edge. The Gasteig has developed several scenarios of how it will go further, and planning could be given.

43 million

Euro additional costs could arise if the procedures for the General renovation of the Gasteig would be abolished and in its place is a renovation planned to be. Four million euros of costs, which were flowed, until now, already in the planning of the General refurbishment, would be lost. On the basis of these estimates, the city does not follow the concerns of the SPD faction, which wanted to stop the procurement procedure for the General renovation of the Gasteig, because the first award from a formal / legal reasons, had been overturned.

In this time, had distanced himself, the SPD-fraction from the large-scale project and is now calling for a scaled-down renovation that is estimated to be 300 million euros. About a third of it alone should be in the improvement of the acoustics of the Philharmonie invested. A request to stop the already approved General renovation, not the SPD, "but that's certainly an Option," said the SPD-culture politician, Julia Schönfeld-Jerome. Your group was all about "show attitude".

The SPD looks in the upcoming second phase of the process incalculable legal risks, which could lead to court proceedings and delays, and thus to skyrocketing costs. The "Rollback" is the easier and faster solution, said box-Jerome.

The Gasteig GmbH has also examined this scenario. In a template for the Supervisory Board, the person responsible should have warned, according to the süddeutsche Zeitung, but in front of it. The phase-out of General refurbishment and the restart of a basic renovation could mean a delay of up to two years and eight months, were informed to the members.

The additional costs due to contracts already concluded, rendered services, compensation claims and further damage could amount to up to 43 million euros. Also if even the General rehabilitation to keep benevolent members of the Supervisory Board, the Figures are a little on the high side, you make it clear that a restart could cause problems.

None of the both variants will run smoothly, with the General renovation. The award of the chamber of Bavaria, the South had claimed the first try of the award that would have been lacking solid criteria for the appointment of the selected offices of Henn Architekten. The defeated competitors Auer Weber and Wulf were taken against it and had to get right.

The schedule is still open

Now it is a new procedure, in which not only the fees of the architect, or their approach to compliance with the construction cost, but also the architectural design will still have weight. The management of the Gasteig presented internally three scenarios: The more, the architecture plays a role, the higher the risk of a dispute.

a schedule is to give no one open, but some of the members of the Supervisory Board at least hope to achieve this year to be a safe assignment. The signs that the city will not give up the General renovation, condense. First of all, had been SPD-cultural officer Hans-Georg Küppers, clearly against his own party, their approach was "suboptimal". All users of the Institute of culture would benefit from a refurbishment, not only the Philharmonic.

In the connector is not met, the Supervisory Board of the Gasteig-open to the public. Participants reported that further steps had been decided for the General renovation. A decision to site the establishment of the interim headquarters in Sendling. Also, the SPD should have voted for members of the Supervisory Board.

The current Situation is a long SPD internal dispute. In 2017, followed the decision in Principle for the refurbishment of a number of social politicians in the party only "abdominal pain". However, the method provides anyway the possibilities to vary the cost. 25 modules includes the General renovation, which need not necessarily be implemented in all.

From the relevant parties in the city Council, only the FDP is so far to the side of the social Democrats. "We continue to strive for a new building and speak with the owners of the parcel post in the hall," says Alderman Thomas Ranft. Should not realize, speak the FDP, for reasons of cost for the small solution.

From the other comes a strong criticism of the SPD. The Gasteig is suitable "not for political games," says mayor Pretzl, who is also leader of the CSU. The Committee on community ÖDP and Left standing for the General refurbishment, says ÖDP-councillor Sonja Haider. It you surprised that the SPD wool shoot such a key investment projects for the city "". Ursula Sabathil want as soon as possible to come forward and criticized the damage to the image. "We don't have to worry about the airport was fun. To tear time on the belt", she appeals. And, not least, the Green party leader Florian Roth is angry about the reversal of the SPD. A "populist-air balloon" would this allow to rise, to emerge as a big Saver.

could, However, run a risk, the looks, the SPD, in fact, still delays and thus to a considerable increase in costs in the case of a General renovation. It relates to the copyright of the originating architects of the Gasteig. A representative of this team has been set to one of the three winning designs of the competition, who will compete again for the award, open to the public. The other two he out of the castle. One of these designs should win now, threaten the Gasteig new weeks and months full of discordant notes.
