residents and local politicians, miss urban Flair in the Schwabing district. Now there are concrete designs, a crossroads to the Central square redesign.By Stefan Mühleisen, Schwabing
The Park city Schwabing, the city bears in the name, but the urban Flair in the heart of the North of the Middle ring. At best the towers the Highlight Towers convey something a big-city feel. But if you walk through the streets of the 40-hectare area, experienced with the area as commercial-small-town - Osram, Amazon, and Microsoft have built their Complex. But the 2500 people in the square to live in a good village road, domagkstraße and A highway 9 gift-Giving, in a sense, surrounded by 12 000 jobs. But now the preparations are on-going, urban way of life in the office to bring City: Park city could get a Central Piazza.
In conversation for more than three years. At that time, in March 2015, stand Helmut rösch Inger on the twelfth floor of the Ostturms of the Highlight Towers and spoke in front of about 120 guests, on the last phase of construction for the Park city. On the last fallow land 1800 apartments and a Hotel are to be built - as well as a "new center" for the district, such as roses Inger, head of the real estate developer Argenta, the biggest land owner in Park city announced. It is also a place for these re-fired Central square was identified: the intersection Anni - Albers - Straße / Lyonel - Feininger - Straße, to the South, adjacent to the Hotel, the chain belongs to the Motel-One mode, where the spacious terrace area in front of the accommodation with a Restaurant, the future nucleus of the urban space flair. And that's exactly the way it should come, at least when it Schwabing, to the locally competent district Committee (BA)-free man.

Because, the Motel One is ready, the development plan process for the vacant lot diagonally, at the Südwesteck the intersection, and the Munich design office Andreas Hautum presented in the order of the Argenta plan sketches for the future of space structure. Planning spokeswoman Petra Piloty (SPD) presented the designs now available to the Public in the most recent meeting of the district Committee. The members of the panel were done, without debate, call on the city to "promptly" on this basis, with execution planning to get started came via decision. "With this design to kill two birds with one stone," says BA Chairman Werner Lederer-Piloty (SPD) is convinced. The problematic traffic situation will be solved, "and the Park city gets a beating heart."
And so Hautum the "new center" for the Park city: The North-South leadership of the Lyonel-Feininger-Straße is pivoted to the East, and a sealed open area in the front area of the Accenture office building was added. In order for the residents so odious through slow traffic from and to the Middle Ring of the housing would be redirected to the area in the Walter-Gropius-Strasse, on the commuter built between the highway and commercial drive along. Furthermore, a generous open area, to the East with access to the so-called Central Park, the green axis of the quarter would be in front of the Hotel. The urban atmosphere provide, on the one hand, the gastronomy of the Hotels on the North side, also on the South side of the sketch shows a Café. In addition, it should go on the West side of the square is busy: There's a twelve-storey residential buildings up to grow, where the ground floor areas for shops are reserved. The highlight: The design of the offices Hilmer Sattler architects Ahlers, Albrecht provides access situation, arcades, similar to those arcades in the pedestrian area of Munich's city centre. In addition, roads and sidewalks with uniform soil to boards designed similar to this on Wedekind.
However, the Hautum Plan is only a first sketch of the idea - and the Bulk of the area is not part of the Argenta, but in the public sector. Head of the company rösch Inger gives us to understand that he would like to see realized in the Piazza for Park city. "It is our sense that at this point, a kind of towns and cities created urban center," he says, and stresses its support "for the district Committee favored planning".
The urban planning unit, shows very open to the concept. "On the whole, the results with the planned design of an urban improvement in new residential buildings, with their demands on the environment," said authorities spokesman Thorsten Vogel the design, the proposal would also correspond to the desire of the residents of Park city for an "urban center". The office Hautum is now to concretize the plans and a cost estimate to present; also traffic studies are yet to come. "The further scope of testing will still take some time," says bird.
don't fail Alone, to the financing, Helmut rösch Inger can now look, this is the final building block for the Park city Schwabing, anyway. "We are basically ready to give our mite to contribute," says Argenta-in-chief.
