Baywobau, Rock Capital Group and UBM Development acquire adjoining plot in Munich-Obersendling to realize approx. 80 additional apartments for the “Gmunder Höfe” project

Munich/Vienna, March 31, 2021 – Already last year, Baywobau, Rock Capital Group and UBM Development succeeded in acquiring an adjoining property at Hofmann Straße 29 in Munich-Obersendling from a private seller. The Hofmannstraße site is directly adjacent to the collaborative “Gmunder Höfe” project. The planned project comprises 460 apartments in up to seven-story buildings. With the addition of the new plot, a further 80 apartments will be added to the project, for which planning permission has now also been granted.

Last year, the largest section of the “Gmunder Höfe” residential project in Munich, which was jointly developed by Baywobau, Rock Capital Group and UBM Development, was sold as a forward sale to the German housing company Vonovia: Here, Vonovia secured the first part of the project with 322 residential units as well as a daycare center. Construction on the approx. 14,000 m² site already started in March 2020, with completion and handover scheduled for the second half of 2023. This transaction is the largest forward sale in the residential construction sector in Munich in the last 10 years.

Construction work can now also start on the next development stage. But the third and final construction phase, with predominantly subsidized apartments, shall also not take much longer. Baywobau, Rock Capital and UBM expect to complete the entire construction project, which will then include around 540 apartments on the approximately 23,500 m² site, by summer 2024.

Details of the “Gmunder Höfe” project

The project on Gmunderstraße in Munich-Obersendling, which now has a total of around 540 residential units, also includes two daycare centers, a crèche, a cafe/restaurant area and over 550 parking spaces. The architectural design is by architect Prof. Dr. Rudolf Hierl, who was the winner of an international architectural competition. The area of Obersendling in Munich, formerly strongly influenced by Siemens AG and an important business location of the Bavarian metropolis, has increasingly developed into a sought-after residential area in recent years. Many Munich residents appreciate not least the proximity to the Isar River and the fast connection to the city center thanks to the subway and S-Bahn. The project is being developed and realized in almost equal parts by Rock Capital Group, Baywobau and UBM.

The parties have agreed not to disclose the purchase price.

UBM Development develops real estate for Europe’s metropolises. The strategic focus is on green building and smart office projects in major cities such as Vienna, Berlin, Munich and Prague. With over 145 years of experience, UBM offers all development services from a single source, from planning to commercialisation.
