Sustainable urban development in Zurich
Under the UN’s 17 Sustainability Development Goals, SDG 11 focuses on cities and communities. These should be inclusive, safe, resilient and sustainable, with a balance between social, economic and ecological sustainability. Swiss Prime Site is further developing the Maag site with these aspects in mind. «maaglive» will complement the existing office spaces on the site with living and cultural spaces. The intention is to open up a significant proportion of the flexibly usable spaces for cultural activities. The three buildings will also be arranged around a tree-lined square. Together with other green spaces, this will contribute to heat reduction in Zurich-West. This goes hand in hand with Swiss Prime Site’s climate goal of reducing emissions to net zero by 2040.
