JSWD plans for Greencity Zurich

Senior living instead of offices

Building site B6 is the last undeveloped plot of land in the so-called Greencity. In order to ensure its socially and urbanistically sustainable development, the design plan was partially revised at the beginning of the year. The reason is a change in the initial situation: The use was previously limited to services and commerce, which, according to the city, no longer meets the needs of the neighborhood and the economy. Therefore, in addition to the previous commercial and service use, apartments for the elderly, care and educational facilities are also to be possible on construction site B6 (planning: JSWD). The change of use creates new qualities for the entire neighborhood and enables a broader range of offers in the Manegg.

Greencity is a project by Losinger Marazzi. On the 8-hectare former Sihlpapier site in the Manegg district, a sustainable urban quarter has been under construction since 2015.
