Vulcano, Zurich

Holiday-style living environment: the spectacular Vulcano high-rise trio caters for every demand.


Take-away service, rooftop sauna, yoga studio and ample greenery for a breath of fresh air: the imposing Vulcano high-rise ensemble turns each day into a vacation. Just come to Zurich-Altstetten, rent one of nearly 300 choice apartments, move in, wind down and savour the flair and lifestyle of a holiday resort.


With its digitally networked apartments and exclusive services, Vulcano is a pioneering development for the city.


It is hard to believe that the over 12'000 m2 site was once used to manufacture cars, motorboats and concrete products. The old factories have now been replaced by a modern living and working environment with attractive business premises, child daycare centre and in-house hotel. The three black, 80 m tall towers have already been hailed as Zurich's new landmark.


Location analysis, design competition, adjudication and turnkey handover spanned a period of only six years – an exceptional achievement for a project of this scale. It was all down to fruitful collaboration between Steiner, as project developer and design-and-build contractor, owner CSA Real Estate Switzerland and the City of Zurich.


Use of smartphone technology on the way home to switch on the heating and have a coffee ready and waiting: Vulcano's “smart home” solutions enable residents to control all technical functions, such as lighting, air-conditioning and appliances, at the press of a mobile phone button.


In the approx. 5,000 m2 green space behind the high-rise complex, residents may wish to put away their smartphones and enjoy a refreshing contrast to the vibrant promenade at the front. On the subject of "green": Vulcano also sets the bar high in terms of sustainability, meeting the most stringent environmental standards of the MINERGIE-P-ECO and greenproperty Gold labels.
