The future is starting right here, right now: Bavaria Towers, Munich’s most forward-looking real-estate development, looks set to redefine the east of the city and create a striking new gateway to the Bogenhausen district. Ideally located, the building ensemble is comprised of four spectacular high-rises with inclined roofs and gently curved forms, which make a striking addition to the Munich skyline. The mix of three office towers and a hotel offer the perfect environment for discerning companies looking for stunning architecture, premium fixtures and fittings, and a high-end look and feel – with a first-rate infrastructure to boot.
Covering a total area of approx. 23,000 square metres, the plot is the property of Bogenhausener Tor Immobilien GmbH, jointly owned by the Von der Heyden Group and an institutional investor. The Munich-based development company Bayern Projekt GmbH is tasked with project development and representing the interests of the owners.

Bavaria Towers makes an architectural statement that will be felt far beyond the city where it is located. In and of themselves, each of the four towers is a design triumph: featuring a pentaganol floor plan, a slightly inclined mono-pitch roof, and a two-storey base building with a layout extending beyond that of the structure above. Together, they form a harmonious ensemble; a striking landmark that truly is one of a kind. A central plaza between the towers is home to a selection of eateries, attractive green spaces and water features – drawing tenants to this outdoor space and inviting them to stay a while.
With its soft, flowing lines and transparent facades, the ensemble creates a striking impression from all angles. By keeping the slightly inclined mono-pitch roofs free of any additional structures, the seamless continuity of the innovative design language is maintained. The architectural concept aims to counterbalance the complexity of the structures through recurring elements and variations on a theme. The pentagon is a shape often found in nature – in the formation of mineral crystals, for example. Intelligent elongation of selected sides of the floor plan maintains the basic pentagonal shape throughout while allowing visual proportions to vary, creating a unique architectural gem.
Few international architects have made a name for themselves as quickly as Fuensanta Nieto and Enrique Sobejano. With offices in Madrid and Berlin, the star duo from Spain already have an impressive portfolio of renowned international projects under their belt – from museums in their home country to plans for entire city districts in China. Their Munich office is currently working on the renovation of the Königshof Hotel. Many of the couple’s award-winning designs aim to integrate contemporary architecture into complex urban contexts. Bavaria Towers will be another fine example: the striking silhouette of the ensemble will beat a new path, while still slotting seamlessly into its surroundings. The towers’ organic shapes and striking façades represent the very best modern design has to offer, creating a welcome exception to the everyday monotony of conventional utilitarian architecture.

Sky Tower is the highest building in the Bavaria Towers ensemble. A spectacular roof terrace on the nineteenth floor provides a fabulous panorama view over Munich and beyond to the Alps. At a height of 83.6 metres, it is one of the tallest structures in the city and can be seen for miles around. Standing proud at the heart of Einsteinstrasse, it will be the first building that millions of visitors to the metropolis see when arriving from the east.

Located in the centre of Einsteinstrasse, the 72.3-metre-high Blue Tower is set to become a key landmark on the eastern periphery of Munich. Those working in the offices on the upper floors will enjoy an unparalleled view over the city and across to the foothills of the Alps. The property is ideal for companies wishing to combine a central location and first-rate transport links with an upmarket look and feel. A real highlight is the large terrace on the second floor: a great spot to escape to and unwind, offering an attractive view of the surrounding greenery.

It may be the smallest property in Bavaria Towers, but it still exceeds even the highest standards. Boasting silver-level DGNB certification and a spectacular roof terrace on the eighth floor, it is the perfect choice for any firm that wants a forward-looking building with a high-end look and feel. The tower forms the north-east corner of the complex, meaning it is set back somewhat from the busy main roads A94 and Einsteinstrasse – tranquil yet still at the heart of the action.

|Underground parking:||140 spaces|
Boasting a striking metallic façade, White Tower stands out from the rest of the complex and creates an exciting visual contrast to the other glass building fronts. All rental space in the tower has already been snapped up, with a business superior Hyperion-Hotel is set to open in the building in 2018. Guests from all over the world will stay in its 345 rooms and panorama suites, and enjoy a variety of restaurants and al fresco dining options.

Moreover, full-length windows and a floor-to-ceiling height of three metres lend a roomy, airy feeling to the rental units. And the upmarket design is rounded out by premium features such as external solar protection and openable window elements.
