Has a certain wow factor. I guess it'll be a marmite-thing where you love it or hate it.

Might be the type of photo or the way the light falls on my computer screen but the buildings look burnt out.

They look better than the typical highrise, though the color is far too dark for my taste.

Two of the small buildings have some kind of roof, do they plan for a rooftop restaurant or something?

I like the ones with a large terrace 90m2 terrace & 88m2 internal, better than most 2.5 room flats in ZH

Is Sauron living on the top floor?

They look very dark on the picture but it might be better in real.

Some of the Altstetten borders are very nice, such as Blümliquartier :-)

Re: Altstetten new apartment block.Whats your opinion?

I got a feeling that City of ZH was quite busy developing Oerlikon for the last 6-7 years and this is mostly achieved & completed.

We had the signals from local press that next development area would be ZH west and it would be mostly Altstetten.

I dont like this Vulcano building at all, it is my personal honest opinion,

however one thing is clear,

all those new-built buildings will attract many people to move out there, this will definitely play some role in "quartier" development of Altstetten.

My desk has a direct view of them. They are the nicest looking thing on that side of the tracks, for sure. Hugely expensive rents though, not sure they can be justified.

Nah, Oerlikon was not the only thing they where doing large things. Look at the project they did (And still are doing) at Brunau for example.

I always considered ZH West to be Bern.

And Indian and Pakistani and SriLankan and even Swiss

The plan is that only the privileged good earners will live in central Zürich.

Less earning people move into agglomeration
