A compromise with the VCS Aargau makes it after years of litigation, The Migros cooperative Aare, and the Credit-Suisse-Asset Management, can directly next to the shopping centre Tivoli your project Tivoli garden. This consists of an OBI DIY store and two high-rise buildings with over 400 apartments. Yesterday, the parties appeared with this message in front of the media. Both were, as for compromises, half-satisfied.
"We have set the Parking charges, the other figures in the Journey," concluded Jürg Caflisch, the President of the VCS in Aarau,. Thus, the VCS has scored, however, in the case of a highly emotional topic: The Shoppi Tivoli must, if the Tivoli garden, Parking on its whole Area from the first Minute to manage. So far, the first 45 minutes were free, then the first hour of 50 at a cost of cents. Starting in 2023 will be: The first hour costs two francs.
300 Parking spaces less
The operator of the Shoppi Tivoli will have to reduce the whole Area and 300 Parking spaces. They planned 4200 Park fields and get a 3900 – the VCS, however, was only 3000 Parking spaces in the negotiations. Nevertheless, Patrick Stäuble, head of the Center of the Shoppi Tivoli, spoke yesterday of a breakthrough: "For us, it was the Central concern that the deadlock resolved the Situation and the way for the further development of the area." There is another project is already in planning: In the area of Neumatt when Shoppi two buildings, each with two almost a hundred meters high high-rise buildings. The VCS is committed in the agreement to demand no further environmental legal measures.
For Caflisch have been improved with this compromise, the environmental impact of the total investment is clear, as is also the Situation for the Bicycle and foot traffic will be better solved. An important role for both sides of the Limmat valley railway (LTB) played, there is a stop in the Tivoli garden is provided, with which the whole shopping centre will be developed. Since the new Parking regime applies only as of the opening of the Tivoli gardens circa mid-2023, if the LTB is already in operation, was this justified, was Stäuble.
The VCS is hoped that with the agreement, the ratio of car traffic (MiV) and public transport is at least clear is improved. This modal split is at the Shoppi Tivoli is a lot worse than in comparable shopping centres. He is 86 per cent in favour of the MiV. In the smooth centre, it is located at 66 percent, and in 2017 opened "Mall of Switzerland" in Lucerne, Ebikon at 60 percent. This means that two-fifths of the customers to arrive by public transport to the shopping centre.

The year-long, part rough – and – tumble negotiations, the Tivoli gardens have raised questions-and some answers-that beyond the individual case. The shopping center Spreitenbach is not have been built, such as the smooth centre, the Volkiland or the Letzipark, times in which environmental measures in the building permits were still the rule. Therefore, they can offer up free Parking. For new shopping centres is, however, at least in the Canton of Zurich, the Parking fee from the first Minute is usually a prerequisite for a building permit.
The Federal court held now in connection with the case of Tivoli garden to the Intervention of the VCS of Aargau in February 2016, an environment must be created impact assessment for the whole Area, if the whole complex is traffic-technically connected to each other. The end-to-end Parking management and the reduction in the number of Parking spaces are the result of it.
Now it's time to go forward
The municipality has now submitted pursuant to this agreement a revised design plan to the Canton. The blade Bacher Mayor Valentin Schmid is confident that the remaining steps will go up to the valid building permit is progressing rapidly. Because the time not in a hurry just for the client, Migros.
Also, the leaders of the limmattal rail sat on pins and needles. "For us, this compromise really came at the very last Moment," said LTB managing Director Daniel Issler. In order for the city to train as planned at the end of the year 2022, according to Killwangen-Spreitenbach, must be begun in September 2019 with the construction of the stop Shoppi Tivoli in the lower level of the pedestal building of the Tivoli garden.
