WOM, Wheel of Munich – a new landmark for Munich.
Munich. The Werksviertel is a new urban quarter to be developed in the east of Munich. At a place with a lively history, where in former times smoking stacks could be seen and, among other things, lubricants and potato dumplings were produced.
On the 39-hectare area at the east station, about 1,150 apartments will be built in the years to come. In addition, approx. 7,000 workplaces will be provided. More than 340 apartments will be available within government-assisted hous- ing construction. A four-tiered elementary school for approx. 400 pupils and several day care centers represent the social infrastructure of the new quarter.
Everyday necessities are covered as well. In the Werksviertel, working, dwelling, and living are optimally combined. Shopping facilities, hotels, catering, compre- hensive leisure opportunities and numerous cultural buildings will be provided. The new Munich concert hall to be built at the heart of the Werksviertel will be a special highlight. Until the start of construction work for the concert hall, the MAURER Ferris wheel will be located there from spring 2019 as a new landmark of Munich.
