Raised ground floor – Lots of views in Bellevue

Almost 300 apartments with a lake view were built in Bellevue near Geneva. That changes the community. Also in the press: Uetlihof in Zurich, Pilatusplatz in Lucerne, research in Wittenbach and 175 years of railways.

Two years ago, City Councilor Daniel Leupi asserted that the city would not act as a major buyer on the real estate market. Now the city council is offering “with a lot of enthusiasm and foreign money” in a billion-dollar deal. – Traffic management at Pilatusplatz in Lucerne has been causing headaches for decades. Neighborhoods and the city are in favor of the ‹Y variant›, business prefers the ‹standard variant›. Now the canton has checked both and m…
