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.
I use the word "City" frequently in Swissgerman as a general term for "downtown". And the people I know as well. It can mean proper downtown or extended downtown (incl. districts adjacent to downtown).

It's also used in songs:
"Vo dä Agglo i d'City" - "yesterday suburbs - today downtown" - http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uIvxdV8_A2Y

There are many English words used in Swissgerman, some in the same way, some with a (slightly) different meaning.

And "City" IS also officially the name of a Zurich district. It's the area in the very center left side of the Limmat river where Bahnhofstrasse is located:
http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_(Z%C3%BCrich)#City
http://de.wikipedia.org/wiki/City_(Stadt_Z%C3%BCrich)

Furthermore, the trade and craft association of the Zurich inner city is called "City Vereinigung", there is the "City Parkhaus" (multi-storey car park), etc.

Why these pillars on the picture don't seem to have a regular pattern, btw?

The tower looks pretty much okay, similar to Bucharest's City Gate project.

it's not only the case with swissgerman, but german in general. the word city is used as often as the word baby nowadays. as you said, city is even often used officially in the german language. frankfurt for example also has a city-ring, an airport city, or the city west ...
