ROSA-ALSCHER GROUP COMMISSIONS KÖSTER AS GENERAL CONTRACTOR
ROSA-ALSCHER Group commissions Köster as general contractor
Munich, 10 December 2021 – The Munich ROSA-ALSCHER Group is pushing ahead with the development of the district center of Freiham Nord. Now Köster has been commissioned as general contractor for the building plot MK 2(3) - a construction company that is unrivalled in managing projects of this size and a reliable partner for realizing all building measures at the new gateway to the west of Munich.
A site for remarkable architecture
The passionless code MK 2(3) does not give away much about the architectural quality that is planned for this part of the center of the new Munich urban quarter. However, when the jury of the architectural competition awarded the Hamburg architects Störmer Murphy and Partners GbR the first prize in 2019, it praised their design in which the use of perspectives “playfully” creates “vertical lines of sight”.
The plans for this site feature buildings with green inner court yards on 2nd-floor level. Like the arcades at the close-by Mahatma Gandhi Square, also here there is a row of two-story arcades on the eastern and northern side. On the one hand you have a Mediterranean lightness and a concept that cleverly uses the effect of space - and on the other there is the attractive mix of restaurants, retail and offices.
Generous planning in all aspects
Above ground, the total floor area on the construction site MK 2(3) will be 24,700 m2; below the surface there will be an additional 12,200 m2. These comprise of a two-story underground car park as well as a single-story underground car park under the public square that links MK 2(3) and the neighbouring MK 2(4). On the site MK 2(3), which is just one of four in the center of Freiham Nord, the buildings are due to comprise a total volume of 144,800 m3 - a figure that not only planners, architects and construction companies will be amazed at. On the ground floor and the first floor of these buildings, there will be shops, restaurants and cafes; above that, three floors of office space.
Köster commences work in January 2022
