History of the Prinz-Eugen-Park
From military school to a showcase project
Located in the eastern Munich, the former Prinz-Eugen-Kaserne area used to be a military school, but now it has been turned into an ecological residential area by the City of Munich, as part of a large scale urban development planning of the City. 1,800 apartments will be built on this site by 2021, offering sustainable and affordable living spaces for approximately 4,000 residents.
Energy and climate policies for urban development
The development of this area serves several goals of the City of Munich. Firstly, to strengthen the sustainable energy and climate policy during the process of urban development, about 1/3 of the Prinz-Eugen-Park is planned as the model of ecological residential area. It promotes buildings with high energy efficiency performance, as well as the use of sustainable building materials. On behalf of the construction community, Der kleine Prinz GbR, Renggli International AG is responsible for realizing 15 apartments and 24 atrium buildings in timber construction. All these buildings meet the standard of “KfW Efficient House 55” – the highest level in the KfW’s (Germany’s Reconstruction Loan Coporation, KfW) financial supporting program for energy-efficient buildings.
Promoting social integration
Furthermore, different types of buildings are designed and developed in this area to meet a wide variety of housing needs, both for rent and for sell, as well as to encourage the communication and integration among the residents from different age, population and income groups.
Promoting affordable housing
Last but not the least, the City of Munich sets out a plan of providing 50% affordable housing construction in the City’s housing development area to address the ever increasing housing shortage, the same target also applies to the Prinz-Eugen-Park. With the speed much faster than the conventional construction approaches, the modern timber construction has demonstrated its strong capability in supporting an efficient growth of the housing market with not only the top quality, but also the competitive price.
