The project consists of the renovation of the Paketposthalle, the historical Post distribution center in Munich West, and the development of an urban, inner-city district with a mix of housing, business premises and spaces for social and cultural activities. The masterplan envisages placing two towers of around 155m in height to become a new landmark for the city. The Halle will be transformed into a new open public space, activated by different daily cultural activities, events and concerts, reaching a capacity of 10,000 visitors.
• maximizing connections with mass transit;
• ensuring connectivity with the surroundings to support the project density; and
• reducing car dependency and parking needs by promoting sustainable mobility.
A comprehensive study was carried out to stress/test the existing link to the train station. Pedestrian simulations verified the capacity of the system in case of large events, and strategies for crowd management and visitor guidance in case of a major event are applied.
Finally, an in-depth travel and parking demand was carried out to measure the parking areas and the accesses. The aim is to challenge the parking regulations by introducing a comprehensive mobility concept due to the vicinity of public transport. Through the reduction of parking space by applying a shared parking strategy due to the vicinity of public transport and a wide and differentiated shared network, a parking demand decrease is obtained.
