It's the "Freitag" Flagship-Store. Freitag produces bags from truck tarps and car seatbelts. This is the reason why they decided to build their flagship store out of used containers

Gott bewahre

Nein, aber diverses Aufträge und zwei/drei davon in Zusammenarbeit mit deren Pressestelle. Und ansonsten viel "Dreistheit" für Streetfotografie

I loved Zurich when I was there back in 2000 and 2001. It's a fantastic city. I actually much preferred it to Genevé.

I'll assume that these are your own pictures, and will move this to the Urban Showcase section. Any future postings placed in the Cityscapes/Skyline section are for properly credited photos by other people.
pm me if these are not your own.

Nice, looks quit big for Swiss standards. How high will it become?

By the way, I visited Zurich just ones on a cold and grey weekend and I thought Zurich was rather clean and...even a bit boring. I know I was wrong because a friend who lived there liked it very much.
I must admit on your pics the city looks very impressive and cosmpolitic and it's worth a second visit!

Primetower will be 126m high which is indeed much for Swiss standards. It will be the biggest highrise in Switzerland at the time finishing (2010). Construction started two weeks ago.

Downtown is clean mostly, but I wouldn't say its cleaner than in other cities I've seen (Downtown London for example)
As nearly every city so is Zurich not really a beauty at cold/grey days - especially for visitors. But on hot and sunny summerdays, Zurich is just the best city in the world If you travel to Zurich once again feel free to ask in the SSC Zurich Forum or via PN for some tipps

I mean YOUR avatar

Yesterday I was just taking a stroll through Zürich West. It's really fascinating to see and feel this change it was undergoing in the last 10 years! Only the traffic is still a major problem - with bad influences to the air quality But who will care in the 30th floor of Kleeblatt or the 50th in Prime Tower

Well I also love YOUR town BTW, and especially your capital (which has a lot in common with Zurich)
Kippis!
