I don't like this tower. The design doens't fit in Zurich. Zurich is so nice, but not with this tower.

Yes, the area really would be perfect. This part of the town is really booming at the moment, so in the far future there may be a cluster there.

crap

I never heard anyone use the word "city" for saying "Zentrum" in Switzerland. They are in fact signs in Basel and Zurich, where "Basel-City" oder "Zurich-City" is written, but that's all.

In Basel we have also the "City-Ring" circle-like road from the central railway station to the north.

But "city" isn't used at all, and there isn's a district called "Zurich-City", maybe you mean Zurich Innenstadt or the district around the HB.

Hm.. There are kind of met two different opinions in my head. First is cool facade, the colour and the shape, and second is fat looking.. The tower doesnt really looks that its 126 metres tall, but shorter than even 100m.

Cette tour est trop massive et pas du tout élégante. On diait que le projet a été baclé. Dommage, pour une fois qu'il se passe quelque chose dans le pays......

Sorry for opening a new threat, the search function seems to be broken

Wenn man keine Ahnung hat, einfach mal Fresse halten.

Vielleicht glaubst du ja Wikipedia oder dem Duden.
