Some opponents are coming out into the open. A few inhabitants of the municipality of Prilly and a neighbourhood association are contesting the impact of the project on the landscape.

A guy, that has been living in a neighbourhoud situated above the future highrise area for about 30 years, worries about the negative impact on his favourite view on lake Geneva from a nearby city park… That’s why he gave notice of opposition to the new neighbourhood plan.

Another guy, member of the neighbourhood association, worries about the fact that most of the new buildings would be higher than the existing ones… He also says that the combination of a multitude of activities and thousands of people will generate quite a bit of incivilities, which is not sufficiently considered.

In short, nothing is done yet.

Well, the new buildings will be higher. Presently, in the nearby area, you have three 50m-high residential buldings. But all the others are definitely smaller.

In Lausanne, some people totally panic when they hear about highrises. Their psychological limit tends to 4 or 5 five storeys at most. So, imagine there mental state when they hear about a 100m-high building. Recently, as a matter of fact, the inhabitants of Lausanne refused a 87m-high building next to the Palais de Beaulieu.

In principle the whole Malley area (PPA Viaduc is just a part of it) should host quite a few highrises (or tall houses): 1x100m, 1x76m, 1x65m, 1x62m, 2x50m. Two of them are missing on the above picture. But it will probably take years before the work can start, as long as it will one day. Urban projects are never easy in Switzerland.

Prilly authorities invited their citizens to a public meeting regarding the future and likely development of Malley. About 250 people attended the event at the Great Hall of Prilly Wednesday night. Reference was made to the Inter-communal Ice Skating Centre, the extension of the existing Galicien viaduct, the 100m-tall tower south of the same viaduct (PPA Viaduc), and the new Malley district that will be grow up on the old slaughterhouses site (Prilly and Renens). Several over 60-m tall buildings meters should raise there.

"This is the first time that I have such a positive return from a meeting on such an important subject, ensures the trustee Alain Gilliéron. I am confident in the event of a referendum.” If the explanations of the authorities were sometimes punctuated by applause, criticisms have also vehemently been voiced out to the high buildings planned in the course of this project.

The maximum height of the tallest building has finally been reduced from 100m to 90m, and finally 85m.
