The University must vacate villas

Persistent political struggles of the living room is not lived in Zurich, only it usually goes to villas on the Zurichberg. Therefore falls out of the frame, what SP city councillor André Odermatt reported recently as a success: that a contract is signed, according to which almost two dozen inappropriate properties around the University of habitable need to be made – including some of the impressive mansions on offer in Zurich.

Today are set up in these houses, Annexes between the University and the University hospital. Libraries, Seminar Rooms, Copying Apparatus, Coffee Machines. It is a decades-old emergency solution that will be obsolete, if in eight years, as planned, the first new buildings in the transformed high school for the door to be opened.

high-seat of the Altsprachler

The 150-year-old Villa Tann-eck on Rämistrasse is one of those converted manor houses, and in which never really grew together, what belongs together. Since 1991, the high seat of the Altsprachler. From the balcony right at the top in a decorated Bay window, the view is a romantic Park. Fly indoors-painted swallows a vaulted ceiling, and cast-iron Putten lounge on an antique Radiator.

All of this collides with the standardized work tables and bookcases that dominate the room: Here it's not about worldly things. Here are the texts of medieval philosophers such as Duns Scotus, or the ill-fated Abelard, emasculated, due to the love affair with a student once. The philologists dealing with so what, are small in number, only a few dozen. A positive side effect for the Public: Who wants to read an afternoon in a stately Salon with a book or just in the Park sitting, you can do that here easily.

The day on which the Villa snatched Tanneck is your determination and the public Good, can be dated to the 12. December 1974. It is the day on which a Liquidator sold the entire Household goods of the last resident, a deceased millionaire's widow named Martha Bruppacher was. The antique writing chest of drawers, large rugs, Biedermeier sofa, everything had to get out. Shortly thereafter, the Canton acquired the Villa, and the University moved in.

space University

This was in the Sixties and seventies of the System. Because the colleges were bursting at the seams, they stepped into the adjoining quarters. In the city, this soon became a political issue, and honored with a terminology that is more reminiscent of Oncology as to education and training policy: From a "growth process" was the speech again and again.

in 1977, issued the city then special regulations for the high school district, which said a further use of the living room. What moves the current city Council to designate the contractually-agreed of "living return" as a "for Zürich very important topic" is unclear. Because it will take many years until then, he has not yet specified what plans he followed. The promotion of low-cost housing, it is likely but not exceeding in the individual case, the contract between the city, the Canton and the educational institutions. Because this treat two types of real estate.

Many privately owned villas

There are nine houses in private ownership. The city has rented little influence, such as this after the statement of the University and the University hospital. You can only dictate to the residential share. What kind of houses it is, is not yet open to the public. There are 14 properties such as the Villa Tanneck is in the possession of the Canton are, on the other hand (see map). Since this does not occur, in contrast to the city as a landlord of housing, he will sell you. According to the building Department, he is likely to offer you first to the city to purchase and if there is no interest, also Private.

In the Villa, Including the Philosophical Seminar.

the Latter is probably because it is questionable why the city is representative of residential properties it should acquire. Especially since the price would be high. On the zürichberg cost of similar objects according to industry experts, fast, a two-digit million amount – and the majority of the 14 cantonal real estate belongs in this category.

in Addition, you would have to raise more money, because the houses lining that part down, or simply be too uncomfortable. The venerable Villa Wehrli to the Board street, for example, since 1971, a sort of Villa villekulla for the English, made two years ago made headlines, because a part of the plaster ceiling on a teacher fell all the way down. And the high on the hillside, this Villa Eichhorst, in 1896, built in the Chateau style, impressed from the outside, but the interior fittings for the Philosophical Seminar have the charm of a doctor's clinic.

The need of rehabilitation of Villa Wehrli is used by the anglicist.

Although the city has shown in the case of the so-called rotten houses on the long street that she is willing to invest double-digit millions of dollars in distressed real estate. There was a total of 81 small apartments and 30 single rooms. In the Uniquartier it would be because of the floor plans of the villas, much less apartments.

No Plan in the luxury segment

In the high-price segment of the city, according to its own information, not investment objective. It has today about apartments, which cost more than 5000 Swiss francs a month, but it is only a handful out of a total of 9200 objects. In addition, they are in the care of historical monuments, houses that have long been owned by the city.

Everything indicates that after the construction of the new Unigebäudes, which was presented last week, several of the Zurich mountain villas come on the market. The most impressive residence, in the students, in and out, not one of them: The Villa Hagmann on the Zollikerstrasse, an investment in the neo-Renaissance style with a huge garden and has been from the previous owner to the University, bequeathed with the Express edition, a ethics centre. And it remains – in a spacious environment, large thrive thoughts.
