Over a hundred catering facilities in the main train station, dozens of the bottom of the Bahnhofstrasse and Löwenstrasse – too many for the City Association. President Milan Prenosil said recently on the occasion of the opening of the Lucerne Confiserie Bachmann on the Bahnhofstrasse: "we Had sated earlier on the lower part of Bahnhofstrasse to many dress shops, the market is there now with the fast food."
it was gratifying, when the Bahnhofstrasse change. However, in this environment, an Oversupply exists in the case of catering. Prenosil knows the area well. He is not only head of the umbrella organisation of the municipal sector, but also Chairman of the Board of Sprüngli, with the principal place of business at Paradeplatz, a branch on the Bahnhofstrasse and in the lion's court, as well as four branches in the Hauptbahnhof itself.
hundreds of thousands of customers
in fact, from the total of 202 stores, the lists, the Shop Ville, just half the food and drinks: of the twelve kiosks over the four Burger King stores, the butcher shop merchant, or the Restaurant Au Premier, to the Large retailers Migros and Coop. The Baur au Lac sold exclusive wines, Drinks of the World has Beers from all over the world in the offer.
most of The shops are open from early morning until late in the evening, Take-away stalls and Restaurants until midnight. The number of potential customers is high: half a Million passengers flows on a daily basis through the corridors and halls of the Zurich HB. In the vicinity of the main train station, it counts far more than three dozen Restaurants, bars and shops where the customers eat, drink, or across the alley sandwiches, ham croissants, burgers, chocolate, Sushi, and other Snacks available for purchase. Where big shops like Migros offer at the same time, behind the lions square or the globe, a huge selection of Takeaway dishes.
food court lion street
In the lower part of Bahnhofstrasse is the supply of fast food to Take away not so great: Since the Confiserie Bachmann is, compared to the Sushi restaurant Yoji's, Appunto Take away and for some months the Vicafe that sells coffee on the street.
To the actual Food-mile is developed, however, the lions road. McDonald's has settled there, because it became clear that the Fast-Food giant could not hold the branch on the nearby Pestalozzi place. Right next to it has set out for the Holy Cow, which also serves mostly burgers. In front of the globe, two food trucks are always available, and sell the pretzels to the supplier, hot dogs, burgers, or Tacos. The lions square Sprüngli is represented, just around the corner of the Grisons, the cult of the butcher, a trendy Eatery has Hatecke,. Not far from Migros, which is also the Thai Fast-Food Stand Kaimug-operates Box. On the lions road soon, also an Indian and an Italian Restaurant.
more recently, has sold a men's outfitters suits, and shoes for business people. It is not the only fashion business to make a Catering restaurant: Where a McDonald's Burger is frying, was formerly the men's fashion business Mettler. At the Holy Cow PKZ offered not too long ago, also Mr dresses. These are all Local to the lion's road to a much stronger change of the fashion to the food court through the Bahnhofstrasse.
But even there the Trend is observed. Latest example is the Confiserie Bachmann, which offers its products in the rooms where the fashion chain Yendi until the bankruptcy in the spring of 2017 was home. The crisis of the fashion industry, mainly caused by online shopping and purchases over the border, has not been immune to the attractive inner city of Zurich.
real estate professionals who know the Bahnhofstrasse and its surroundings, however, are not of the view that the Board is a Glut. It was a good Supplement to the offer, the Bahnhofstrasse is evolving in the right direction. "The supply in the area has changed, it was diversified. And it will continue to change," says Urs Küng, co-owner of partners Real Estate. Dress chains would be partly suppressed, because the necessary added value achieved. Küng knows that, in addition to shops from the technology sector are pulling on the road. "With products that you can buy online, where but it is important that you can see in the Original and in the Hand." Two contracts with such a company had recently been signed. For more information, to Küng.
tenant mix is important
Robert Weinert, head of the Immo-Monitoring Wüest Partner, confirms the Trend towards Food. He explained to him in advance with the passers-by frequencies that were close to the station is very high; these companies should be instructed to make sales. The individual house owners benefited from the strong demand for spaces and you don't have to pay attention to a good mix of tenants, as landlords in shopping centres would do.
According to Küng, the rents on Zurich's Bahnhofstrasse are currently stable. He expects that they will rise in the future. "Anyone who moves here, has a big added value." Weinert says, the Rents on the Bahnhofstrasse were under pressure, in contrast to Prime locations in other cities, but still. (Editorial Tamedia)
