The master plan proposes the re-purposing of this former brownfield area, located on the outskirts of Zurich, using a urban block typology which combines different build heights. This height diversity is a result of the need to provide several dwelling typologies: row maisonettes, rooftop apartments, high-rise dwellings and live/work units. The urban block by EM2N runs along the perimeter creating a retail street on south and west facades.
