Building application «AuPark» is submitted today

After the private design plan for the current industrial site in Au-Wädenswil became legally binding in July of this year, Intershop will now submit the building application based on it.

The project, which has been drawn up by three different architectural studios, provides for the construction of 231 apartments and a supplementary neighbourhood service. 54 apartments are reserved for affordable housing. It is planned to construct the buildings in accordance with the Swiss Sustainable Building Standard (SNBS) and with energy supply by heat pumps. Great attention will also be paid to biodiversity.

The «AuPark» comprises a varied range of housing, which is characterised equally by a nature-oriented character. Thanks to different floor plans, from traditional to innovative, an intergenerational offer will be created. Due to the attractive location of the area, all residential units have unique views.

In addition, a spacious public park is being created in the middle of the site as a connecting element and attractive meeting zone for the population of Au.

The new building for the Zimmerberg secondary school is being constructed by the Canton of Zurich and is not included in the building application.

The development of the area is planned in stages. Initial dismantling work inside the buildings is scheduled to begin in autumn 2021, while demolition is scheduled to begin in winter 2021/2022. According to current planning, the first building, including the commercial use and park, should be ready for occupation in winter 2024/2025.
