The frost-resistant Fuerstenstein granite (diorite) is, when polished, one of the few very dark, almost black, hard rocks mined in Germany. The office buildings of the senior building authorities in Munich, on the corner of Franz-Josef-Strauß-Ring and Prinzregentenstraße, were built in 1969 as a five-story, square main building and a three-story block-shaped adjacent building. In the last few years, the architects Schmidt-Schicketanz and Partner GmbH built a two-story new building for the examination hall in the space designated in the land-use plan.
