Redevelopment: the former Ludwig Beck department store in Munich-Laim

A prestigious property once more

We are redeveloping the former Ludwig Beck department store in Munich's Laim district, which has been standing empty since 1991, in close consultation with politicians and residents. In the past, numerous plans for redeveloping the property failed and as a result the building at Fürstenrieder Strasse 21, with its striking brick facade, has been falling into ruin.

By involving the district committee and city council as well as local residents, we have now developed a shared vision for this central site in the district. This transparent process has proved successful. We began comprehensive refurbishment of the building in 2017, before converting the empty commercial premises into a modern office and business complex.

This visually closes the gap to the neighboring buildings. A supermarket with a restaurant will be located on the ground and first floors. The spacious office units, with their flexible floor plans and light-industrial-style architecture with supporting steel columns, on the remaining floors have already been leased. The location provides easy access to public transport and offers a large number of bicycle stands. A particular highlight is the roof terraces for employees.

„In a growing city, where a housing shortage and lack of local amenities on the one hand and densification on the other are key issues for citizens, that's all you can ask for from planners and developers.“

Johannes Beetz, chief editor of "Wochenspiegel" and resident

Urban development with character

What once was a a ruin is being transformed into a building that will in the future have a positive impact on Laim. "This is how you inspire people and work with them to shape an urban development," says Johannes Beetz, Wochenspiegel editor-in-chief and a resident. "In a growing city, where a housing shortage and lack of local amenities on the one hand and densification on the other are key issues for its citizens, that’s all you can ask for from planners and developers."
