Invested a lot lost everything

Aviva Linde sugar occurs on the balcony and look at the green courtyard, a recently built Playground, the surrounding buildings, the tenant knows them all by name: "all This," says Linde cker, "do you want to take that away from us." The voice, the 73-Year-old rolls over, a tear rolls down her cheek. The Baugespanne are already installed and sticking out like spears. They stand for what no one wants to have in the brunau Park come true: Four of the five buildings to be demolished. Last complete renovation: eight years ago. It is concerned with 239 apartments, around 400 tenants. Most have received at the end of March, the termination – also Aviva Linde, thickeners and her husband Nicolas.

Until the middle of 2020 to have the suitcase Packed. The pension Fund of the Credit Suisse is seeking as a owner of the value: For a 3.5-room apartment the rent should be between 2250 and 2600 francs.

to enter in "demolition of apartment"

The Lindeckers are residents of the first hour. Since 1980, you'll be in brunau Park, since last October in the current apartment. A dream property for many residents of Zurich: a three room, two toilet with bath, lots of light, lots of space, built in 1996.

As the children moved out of the house, had become the two, the old apartment is too big. For five years they kept on the lookout for a smaller place to Stay in the quarters. Great is the joy, as they were last year, finally found it: "We did not know at the time that we pull in a demolition of housing," says Nicolas Linde sugar. The Credit Suisse planned to Neuüberbauung since 2015, the demolition of most buildings was in the last year was already a done deal. But the tenants were not informed.

Some tenants complain that they had been led by their management company Wincasa intentionally misleading. In the summer of 2018 were released in the media for the first time, rumors circulated that the brunau Park will be demolished.

a Letter, available to the TA, tried the Wincasa to reassure the tenants – "so as not to false ideas and rumours," she wrote. There are various options would be considered for a redesign. "Even the only the Renovation of the retail space is to imagine." It's all for a good solution to be done – also in the interests of the tenants. "As soon as enough facts are available to make a decision, we will notify the tenants in a timely manner and in depth." The next Letter received by the tenant, the notice of termination.

Wasted investment

The architecture competition by 2017, the thrust of the planning is final: All four candidates offices saw a complete redesign of the brunau Park. This also applies to the industry. For the large branch of Migros will be created during the renovation period, a temporary.

the Smaller providers fear for their existence. About the Barber Orhan Sylqevci who invested a lot of money and heart-blood in his Salon Fashion Hair. The father of the family took over the business almost ten years ago and renovated it completely. In order to get capital, cashed in his pension Fund. Three years ago, he invested again 35'000 francs. Wincasa have him encouraged to take this step. Now, where the business at last, he had received the notice of termination, without notice, says Sylqevci. "I have next year to get out of here – and Nothing to stand in front of."

Renate Derungs, managing Director of a daycare center, criticized the information policy of Wincasa. You would have expected that the administrative search with her early in the conversation. The verdict was delivered to her at the end of March by Post, the same time as the other tenants: a notice of termination to the end of June, 2020, without the offer of a provisional restoration during the construction phase. Many parents are now confused, because the future of the daycare is unclear. A decline in demand was noticeable. The Playground was designed just new. Cost: around 15000 francs. "As the excavator for the Playground pulled out, were placed in the Baugespanne," said Derungs. On the grounds of the Kita, the CS wants to build a Showroom. "We make our stand and try to stay as long as possible."

resistance is growing throughout the district. At the beginning of March, the community of interest brunau Park was formed. In a Petition required by the CS, among other things, affordable housing, and withdrawal of already issued notices of termination. To the terminations, the big Bank want to hold on to how you communicate on request. On the accusation, to have fooled, not CS, and Wincasa: From data protection to individual tenancies could be taken objections.


Aviva Linde sugar breaks walk through the brunau Park, as he would be your living room. A short chat with a longtime neighbor, a mutual encouragement: "We can do this."

All of you are stuck in the brunau Park and, in turn, have got children – the grandchildren of the Lindeckers, the run around now in the neighborhood.

As part of a Jewish minority, they had to flee once from their homeland, Iraq. In Israel, she lived for many years in a refugee camp and took over the top sports the way to Europe. The brunau Park was for the end of a long journey: at last, a home in which the origin plays no great role any more. The neighborhood is home to both a large Jewish community as well as many Muslims. Life works according to Linde sugar. And more still: "We are like a big family that helps each other."

This solidarity has kept some of the residents, before going into the nursing home. The Migros-Restaurant is your meeting place, the cashier welcomes all with a first name. Coffee, cake, a dominant theme, and many questioning faces: How to proceed with the brunau Park? How can be saved the cherished world?

The Credit Suisse reiterated, meanwhile, that the notices of termination. These relate to the higher than average number of older people. The CS is aware of this fact consciously. 1.
