Utilization Strategy for Zurich's “Schlachthof” Site

The lease agreement between a Zurich-based slaughterhouse and the city of Zurich, the owner of the “Schlachthof” site, is set to expire in 2029. We worked with the City of Zurich to develop a usage strategy that defines the future usage goals, and elaborates and evaluates various utilization options. The usage strategy served the city council as a basis for decision-making and the subsequent test planning procedure.
