A dynamic new district will soon be developed under the name 'The Mattenhof Micropolis' on the border between Lucerne, Kriens and Horw. The project will create an ultramodern living space in which the micropolitans can live, work, shop and meet. In all, some 300 state-of-the-art 1.5- to 4.5-bedroom flats with total living space of between 50 and 120 square metres will be built. The flats will be characterised by the modern design of the façade, their ingenious layouts and wonderful loggias, balconies and terraces. Some 20,000 square metres of utilisable office space will also be created, offering everything from small office units for start-ups and creative companies via generously sized solutions for all kinds of SMEs to company headquarters spanning several storeys. About 7000 square metres of retail space on the ground floor will offer ample room for a variety of shops and businesses, which will benefit from readily adaptable layouts, outstanding visibility and an excellent location. Mattenhof’s attractiveness will be enhanced further by a hotel with 160 rooms spread across 4000 square metres as well as a 600-space multi-storey car park. Thanks to the perfect location, residents and visitors will have access to a diverse range of shopping opportunities, catering outlets, sports, recreational and leisure facilities in the immediate vicinity, as well as Mattenhof train station, several bus lines and motorway junctions.
The “Flon” district stretches over 55,000m2. It was converted over a period of ten years into a modern, attractive district of Lausanne. In the direct vicinity of Lausanne-Flon metro station there are now dozens of businesses, cafés, restaurants and nightclubs, as well as art galleries, an accident & emergency centre, a music school, bank branches, a municipality building and a Migros-Klubschule (adult education centre). A large underground garage for over 900 vehicles, a series of lofts and a designer hotel (currently under construction) complete the package. The area has further development potential, and plans are currently being made to take advantage of this potential.
Torfeld Süd is in a central location near the main Aarau train station. It has a surface area of more than 45,000 square metres, with approximately 80,000 square metres of gross floor space. Voters approved a rezoning in June 2010 to transform the area from an industrial zone to a mixed use area of housing, recreation and office space. Mobimo has now launched a plan to develop a lively area for both living and working that features a wide diversity of residents, visitors and workers. The conversion of the old Aeschbachhalle will play an important role in this plan, as it will act as the initial spark for the redevelopment and for the new “downtown” space for this part of the city.
This area, which covers 12,600 m2, is located in the centre of Lausanne close to the station. Its key benefits include a magnificent view of Lake Geneva, the city and the Alps. It also offers the possibility of developing some 20,000 m2 of additional usable space for businesses, hotels or housing.
Lausanne – La Rasude
La Rasude, which is located in the centre of Lausanne close to Lausanne station, will be the site of a major development. Mobimo and CFF Immobilier, which own the plots concerned, intend to develop a major complex comprising rented office space, housing, services and businesses over an area of 76,000 m2.
