The ground-breaking ceremony was held today for the Weidsicht residential development in Pfäffikon, Canton of Zurich. Work on site had already commenced on 18 September 2017. The scheme, developed by design-and-build contractor Steiner AG, for six apartment blocks with a total of 38 owner-occupied apartments offers a unique combination of natural setting, high quality of life and contemporary architecture. The works are scheduled for completion by the second quarter of 2019.
The next 22 months will see the construction of six buildings housing a total of 38 upmarket owner-occupied apartments on the fringes of the village of Pfäffikon in the Canton of Zurich. Even at the development stage, Steiner AG's specialists made due allowance for a variety of living arrangements in order to attract as wide a range of potential occupants as possible. The success of this concept is impressively underlined by the marketing results to date, with over 80% of the apartments already sold prior to the start on site. Accordingly, today's ground-breaking ceremony was also attended by many future residents of the Weidsicht housing estate.
At the boundary between nature and the urban realm
Reminiscent of box-shaped village villas, the six apartment buildings blend harmoniously with the gently sloping topography of the site in the hilly Zürcher Oberland region. The peaceful location adjoining an agricultural zone creates a natural atmosphere, which is reinforced by the landscaping concept with park-like open areas. The 2½- to 5½-room apartments of the development impress with their spacious and subtle floorplans. The bright, open spaces are cleverly configured to create private areas to retreat to, while the numerous window fronts command expansive vistas. The earth-coloured facades with their elegantly framed "vantage-point" windows add a stylish note to the buildings.
The modern architecture is perfectly complemented by a full range of amenities. Most of the apartments include a storeroom and private washing machine and dryer. The basement storage compartments are conveniently served by lifts, with provision also made for direct, disabled access from all buildings to the 61-space basement car park. The idyllic lake (Pfäffikersee) and Pfäffikon railway station are within ten minutes' walk of the Weidsicht estate, and both a kindergarten and primary school can be reached on foot in under five minutes. Zurich and Winterthur are both about half an hour's drive from the site and are also easily reached by the S-Bahn rapid transit trains.
