Aldi and Edeka are planning residential construction in Munich

Already at a meeting in early 2018, the Munich retailers were enthusiastic about the idea of ​​OB Dieter Reiter to create housing by overbuilding already existing markets. Lidl made the start and submitted several apartment building plans in January 2019: In Sendling and Obermenzing, more than 30 apartments are to be built via one branch.

Now the competition wants to refill. As a spokesman for Aldi Süd confirmed , the plans are already running. They are, however, at an early stage, so nothing can be known about possible locations. The spokesman emphasized that Aldi Süd “had a great interest in realizing further multi-storey real estate projects with residential development in Munich”.

In 2008, the discounter last operated as the client in Munich: at Schwanseestraße 61 in Giesing. The apartments above the store were sold, according to a spokesman for completion.


Edeka also wants to be involved in the future on the Munich housing market. A spokeswoman for Edeka said that Edeka is already represented in many locations in mixed-use real estate and more will follow. Combining supermarkets with residential projects is an important issue in expansion work, especially in urban locations, according to the spokeswoman
