The high school district was allowed to high,

just before closing virtually you could also say something to the largest remodeling project in the city, the political representatives of the people of Zurich. In the municipal Council, they debated yesterday, the building and zoning regulations (BZO) for the new high school district. The basis of all construction projects – in principle.

But the "Big Five" behind the generation project, the Canton government, city government, University, ETH and the University hospital, did not want to wait. You are forged ahead, took two steps to anticipate and the beginning of the year, the first two projects presented: the Uni-new building by Herzog & de Meuron, as well as the new hospital sector, initially by Christ & Gantenbein. For this reversal of the intended chronology, it was in the autumn of a complaint by the construction law course court. The people's representatives in the municipal Council were yesterday pretty upset about it – but that was it then already with the Unity.

conformists against idealists

There were two blocks: On the one hand, the conformists on the SP, FDP, GLP, on line building construction superintendent André Odermatt (SP) argument. Thus, everything runs in the high school district well, it's just a matter of filling the right half of the gap. To adopt a BZO, which is consistent with the previous planning.

On the other hand, the idealists, an atypical coalition of Green, AL and SVP, understood their job differently. They wanted to help shape, instead of just a planning to understand the surgery in her eyes to the large volume of construction. What culminated in the confession of SVP district Council Stefan Urech, he had rarely heard such a good Vote from the left, on the Council side. Because: "We are representatives of the city, not the Canton." This opposition bloc had formulated in the preparatory Committee, two amendments that would put the previous plan on its head. Your urban Maxim: The compression must primarily take place in the lower part of the district, close to the Rämistrasse. Therefore, they wanted to reduce the permitted maximum height of 27 meters. In addition, they argued for a zone plan, which follows the Terrain and seven floors, only the bottom of allowed, while the top of the slope, the limit would be four.

Green, AL and SVP wanted to make, instead of just plans to follow.

"So that the Council can set a framework, what works and what does not work", promoted Andrea Leitner Verhoeven (AL). He dispenses with it, giving to it the Canton a free pass and only could hope that he was taking advantage of this. Maria del Carmen Señorán (SVP) is not acknowledged, the first two construction projects be reluctant to have failed, but: "just trust that the future buildings will be deep enough." Gabi Kisker from the Greens said that they'll take the entire Expansion to the case, if you correct the "too large troubled amount costume". The Canton remain capable of action, because he could the BZO with a design plan oversteer – "he needs to be able to then justify but good".

Because the SP-in-law, in this debate, to the Annoyance of AL and Green, it was the FDP, and GLP, to keep. The green-liberal Ann-Catherine Nabholz was skeptical of the spatial concentration in the center, but held, in view of the far-advanced planning nothing of the "unnecessary restrictions". The liberal-minded Andri silver Schmidt said: "We are all in agreement that it would be nice to build down." But: If you throw now, the planning of the pile, throw the Unispital for years millions for pointless maintenance to the window. In the worst case, you have for many years not a hospital, more in the centre.

Almost all of them are failed against the old building

Although both applications clear, supported by the municipal Council later voted almost unanimously a other, similar in character to the request: The city should request the cantonal government to turn the old hospital sector, initially the architectural firm Haefeli Moser Steiger. That building, a relocation of new buildings, the direction of the Rämistrasse in the way. Representatives of SP and FDP declared that you are to the period of construction, during the to be used the house from the Unispital, but to the more distant future. Señoran (SVP) was upset that the hospital representatives want to use the outdated rooms, only for the geriatric. "An old hospital for old people – are you Serious?"

Only the city Council or Matt and Ernst Tanner (EPP) fought for the monument. You spoke of a senseless victim, particularly in view of the previously taken Decisions. Nevertheless, you need to advertise or Matt is now the councillor contre cœur. For this, he has a BZO to his liking in the bag – unless a Referendum is taken. The AL has already indicated, this would be a way to let the city residents about the neighborhood vote.
