The construction work is completed after almost exactly two years, the apartments are turnkey: The first residents are moving into the new complex with a total of 76 apartments on the property of the Munich district in the Putzbrunn forest colony. This is the end of a joint project: 54 of the apartments are occupied by employees of the district office, 22 are allocated to the municipality of Putzbrunn. Putzbrunn’s mayor Edwin Klostermeier (SPD) had always emphasized during the construction phase that these are primarily intended for community employees. “Last but not least, educators who you can no longer get on the market if you don’t offer them a place to live,” said the town hall chief. “And then locals who have problems on the rental market should also get a chance.” The net rent is ten euros per square meter.
District Administrator Christoph Göbel (CSU) is enthusiastic about the cooperation between state and municipal forces in the planning, financing and realization of the ultra-modern housing complex: “Without the provision of the property in question from the district’s own property portfolio and funding from the state government through the municipal housing subsidy program, there would be neither the implementation of the project was still feasible because of the net rent that has now been made possible, “emphasizes Göbel.
The two- to five-room apartments are “solid housing construction that has provided a livable environment for locals and employees of the community and district for decades”, according to a press release from the district office. The complex appears friendly and open because of its spacious balconies and the harmonious combination of building materials with the wood that defines the design, as well as the outdoor facilities and playgrounds.
All apartments are barrier-free, and three of the apartments in each municipality and district are also wheelchair-accessible. In terms of climate protection and modern equipment, modern technologies have been taken into account, so the system is heated with district heating mainly from geothermal energy. The roof areas of the buildings are used for a cooperative-operated photovoltaic system. Each apartment is assigned an underground parking space with a power connection so that electrically powered vehicles can be charged.
The total costs of the district and municipality will amount to around 29 million euros, the district portion is around 21 million euros. The Free State of Bavaria supports the project under the municipal housing subsidy program with 30 percent of the eligible costs, which means up to 8.5 million euros for the two district buildings.
“In my opinion, with the newly built residential complex we have created an extremely attractive offer with which we also meet our duty of care for our employees,” said District Administrator Göbel.
