Neu-Oerlikon – Latest Developments in the North of Zurich
A new city district in the north of Zurich. Neu-Oerlikon creates living and working space.
In 2000, Zurich’s north experienced great change with the addition of Neu-Oerlikon. The former industrial premises were subject to one of the largest inner-city development projects in Switzerland. Over 12,000 new jobs and living space for 5,000 people were created. The industrial area has been transformed into a new and exciting city district containing schools, cultural institutions and attractive parkland, as well as many recreational opportunities.
Basis of this rapid development was a master plan, which was developed with the cooperation of the landowners and the City of Zurich in a complex process.
