The ground-breaking ceremony for the Am Südhang residential development in Brügg in the Bernese Seeland region took place today in glorious sunshine. The new-build project, developed and implemented by "total" (design-and-build) contractor Steiner AG, comprises three freestanding blocks containing a total of 24 high-quality apartments for private ownership. Occupying a charming hillside site on the eastern fringes of the municipality of Brügg, with views of the Alps and the Swiss central plateau, the scheme is scheduled for completion in two years' time and strikes an effortless balance between urban and rural living.
Though resembling a group of detached single-family houses, the Am Südhang development nonetheless offers all the benefits of shared amenities. At the centre of the 3.5- to 5.5-room flats is an open living/dining area which merges seamlessly into the surrounding spaces, while expansive glass fronts and floor-to-ceiling sliding doors afford views in three directions. At ground-floor level, gravel forecourts and gardens lend the buildings the character of single-family homes. Some of the penthouse apartments have split levels that neatly separate private from guest spaces. Residents can, however, dispense with the optional partition in order to enjoy a living environment with a much more spacious and airy feel. A 37-space basement car park providing direct access to the buildings further enhances the appeal of the exquisite Am Südhang ensemble.
Sought-after commonhold apartments
Located to the south of Biel/Bienne on the Nidau-Büren Canal, the municipality of Brügg effortlessly combines the benefits of town and countryside, and retains a village feel despite its urban attributes. The A6 motorway bound for Biel/Bienne, Bern and Neuchâtel can be reached from the Am Südhang site in just a few minutes. Travel time to the centre of Biel/Bienne is around ten minutes. The site also has good public transport connections (bus and S-Bahn rapid-transit systems). In the family-friendly neighbourhood, nursery, primary and secondary schools as well as various shopping facilities are within easy walking distance.
Marketing activities for the exclusive owner-occupied apartments in the Bernese Seeland region kicked off successfully last autumn. Ursula Berchtold, the Steiner AG officer responsible for marketing the Am Südhang properties, is highly satisfied with the sales achieved so far: "To date, we have managed to find buyers or sign reservation contracts for roughly half the units. So anyone thinking of buying an apartment at the Am Südhang site in Brügg will have to hurry."
