The situation on Munich’s market for apartments for rent is becoming almost unbearable, even though the plans of the City Of Munich for new apartments are being fulfilled during the past years. Munich’s Mayor Dieter Reiter has presented a long-term plan for new apartments at the Bavarian capital yesterday, July 14, 2016 Munich’s local media and the official site of the City of Munich report. The plan goes until 2030 and shows the possibilities of building 61,200 new apartments within the city limits of the Bavarian capital.
4,000 apartments could be built in central Munich, 16,000 in the northern districts of the city, 8,000 in the west and a total of some 30,000 in the southern and eastern parts of the city. This means that residents will have to live denser than currently, as many of the new buildings are planned to be raised in areas which already are residential. Bureaucracy regarding construction is planned to be simplified and development plans changed in order to allow for more residents in certain areas and other measures will be taken in order to make construction in Munich cheaper.
Currently in Munich there is an example of how fast things can be done in the Bavarian capital. In December 2015, the idea emerged to build a module house with 100 apartments above the parking area of the Dantebad and by December 2016 the first residents are going to move in! Half of the new apartments are going to be rented out to people without a place to live and the other half to refugees. 60 per cent of the refugees moving in will be male and 40 per cent female. The newly built apartments are of decent quality and are planned to last for at least 50 years, TZ reports in today’s printed edition.
