Glattpark - JCB moving earth...why?

Hi all,


I live near Glattpark and from my window can see a JCB clearing a patch of all grass and trees in front of the post office and apotheke on Wright-Strasse.


I don't see on the Glattpark plans what is meant to be built there - does anyone know? Currently it resembles a wet, muddy skatepark

So, plot thickens. I called the number on glattpark.ch to inquire and at first the guy said it's all online...it isn't. He then said he didn't know what was going on, and to call back next week...

Suspicious!

They're building a new pan-galactic highway. Didn't you hear?

Sweet. Not sure I want all those immigrant Andromedans though, they don't understand our Milky ways.

in case you still don't know, this is what they plan there: https://wunderkammer-glattpark.ch/wunderkammer/

by now, the dirt bikepark looks almost finished

the patch already looks much better now than before in my opinion

I thought it was going to be for BMX style things. Dirt bikes is a funking disaster, the bedroom wing looks right over it, it will be noisy as hell!

Keep calm. It is for push bikes only.

Edit: I am not sure but it may be temporary only. Zou can see where thez want put buildings in the future: http://www.glattpark.ch/grundlagen/i...&title=Nutzung
(Outline of the buildings are just examples.)

Re: Glattpark - JCB moving earth...why?

this patch of land is owned by the city of zurich. even if its part of Opfikon, but the city of zurich is the owner of the land. sooner or later, something will be built there. currently, it is part of zurich's expansion land "treasure" ("Baulandreserven"). Same for the patch behind the Kameha Hotel. With the current situation, Zurich is not gonna sell or build anything there and keep it as a reserve for the next couple of years

Good to hear it is BMX type bikes only, they can go knock themselves out, and probably will.


Will be interesting to see what they would build there otherwise, it was more or less waste ground, so would be good to see it turned into something, ideally with some commercial stuff on the ground floor.
