Chäsimatt Rotkreuz, Switzerland / 2017 - Expected Completion 2023
Rotkreuz has undergone a dynamic growth spurt in the last 60 years from a handful of residents to a township of 10,500 following the connection of the main railway line between Zürich and Luzern. With pharmaceutical companies setting up their diagnostic headquarters and a new IT school, the population is expected to grow by another 20 percent in the next 10 years. Chäsimatt is one of the last remaining empty plots in the center of the township. The project envisions to become a lively urban development, and a key puzzle piece to connect the northern side of the railway tracks with the denser southern side. The mixed-use complex will spread over a 14,892m2 site where a cheese factory once operated.
AMA has been given a direct contract to design and execute affordable apartments, a Landi store, commercial spaces and ateliers, a hotel, a daycare center, and a rock climbing hall. The project is expected to be inhabited in 2023.
