Work began today on the Mariazellweg housing development in Sursee. Steiner AG won the design-and-build contract to construct 22 owner-occupied flats on the last available piece of building land enjoying open views across to the Sempachersee and the Alps. Construction work is scheduled for completion by the end of 2016.
Over the next 18 months, five apartment blocks comprising a total of 22 owner-occupied apartments are being built at a prime site in Sursee. The new development occupies an idyllic location on the Mariazell moraine hill, a plateau overlooking the Zellmoos nature reserve. It is situated in an existing district of detached houses with mature trees. Most of the flats enjoy magnificent and unhindered views across to the Alps and the nearby lake.
One housing development – two concepts
The 22 owner-occupied 3½- to 5½-room apartments occupy five blocks. To make the most of this prime site, Steiner AG designed the development in such a way that the largest possible number of flats would enjoy lake and mountain views. The three "Seehäuser" ("lake blocks") are embedded harmoniously in the landscape: their carefully structured architecture follows the flow of the lake-facing moraine hillside. The three free-standing buildings comprise four 4½- to 5½-room flats with 125–150 m² of floorspace each: one is a ground-floor garden apartment while the other three are upper-storey triplex apartments with living space on three floors (including attic). Each apartment has direct access to a basement car park.
The two "Plateauhäuser" ("plateau blocks") are located to the east of the hill and are designed to blend in with the adjoining buildings. Each of them comprises five wheelchair-accessible 3½- to 4½-room apartments with 80 and 145 m² of floorspace, and most enjoy mountain and lake views. The flats' spacious, modern layout will enable their future owners to realize their dream of living at a prime location while at the same time enjoying an interior fit-out tailored to their specific needs.
Demand for these apartments is exceptionally high: 16 of the 22 flats have already been sold or are reserved.
