Laying of foundation stone for the cooperative apartments at Manegg Mitte in Zurich

Today the foundation stone was laid to mark the official launch of construction work on building C1 at Manegg Mitte, an attractive development on the banks of the River Sihl to the south of Zurich’s city centre. By 2022, Steiner AG – acting as total (design-and-build) contractor for this sub-project – will have built 101 modern cooperative apartments as well as commercial units for the Baugenossenschaft des Eidgenössischen Personals (BEP).

The Manegg Mitte complex, which was developed jointly by Steiner AG and the BEP cooperative, comprises not only the 101 rental apartments in Building C1 but also 151 spacious apartments in two further buildings, which will be marketed by Steiner as owner-occupied apartments under the Sihlterrassen brand. The light and airy cooperative apartments in the eight-storey C1 building on Allmendstrasse have efficiently laid-out floor plans and range in size from 2.5 to 5.5 rooms. They are intended for occupation by families, couples, flat-sharers and single people in all age brackets. The BEP building's three courtyard spaces offer future residents plenty of scope for secluded relaxation, and the banks of the Sihl are just a stone’s throw away. Moreover, the ground floor of the building will provide communal areas as well as high-quality commercial units.

From seat of industry to urban residential quarter Manegg is one of the last big areas in the city of Zurich still undergoing development. The entry into force of the private Manegg master plan in 2011 mapped out the future of this former industrial site in the south of the city. As it is served by the S4 line of the Sihltal Zürich Uetliberg railway (SZU), the district enjoys excellent public transport links. Directly adjacent to the Greencity and Sihlbogen developments, it is an up-and-coming urban quarter located very close to the River Sihl in Zurich's southern suburb of Wollishofen.
