The planning permit for the new Glasi Quarter in Bülach now has legal force, which means that construction work on the new urban district can start in spring 2019. The neighbourhood will come to life as early as 2021 when the first of the 500-plus apartments and the over 20,000m2 of light-industrial and service-sector units are occupied.
Planning permission was originally granted to development partners Baugenossenschaft Glattal Zürich, Logis Suisse AG and Steiner AG by the town of Bülach on 22 June 2018. This has now taken legal effect. Beat Tschudi, Steiner AG's overall project manager for the Glasi Quarter development, was delighted at the news: "Planning permission marks a further major milestone and allows us to start preparations for the construction of this flagship urban scheme." The works are scheduled to begin in spring 2019.
High quality of life
The Glasi Quarter is an outstanding scheme in terms of its urban, architectural and spatial planning quality. In addition to rental and owner-occupied apartments, the new urban district will house service providers, tradespersons and catering facilities as well as a hotel, a care centre with retirement apartments and a crèche. It will attract both Bülach's existing population and residents new to the town.
Glasi Festival: the neighbourhood awakens
The Glasi Festival, held on 15 September, provided a foretaste of life in the community and the diverse opportunities for interacting with its other members. Around 1,000 visitors, young and old, met on the Glasi site to learn and play, to find out about the scheme and experience the setting.
JADE – a home with prospects
Marketing activities for the privately owned apartments in the JADE tower in the Glasi Quarter officially kicked off a few days ago. Prospective buyers can now register online on the www.jade-buelach.ch website and use the apartment configurator specially programmed for the high-rise to custom-design the layout and interior fabric of their desired apartments. A showroom in the on-site BIM Office at Schützenmattstrasse 12 in Bülach also provides visitors with an opportunity to view and compare the various fit-out options. Subject to prior arrangement, our on-the-spot experts are available for personal meetings with prospective buyers to present the top-class residential facilities available in the JADE tower.
