For decades, the Fenaco agricultural cooperative has used the area west of the train station as a production and storage site. Now, this site will be converted into a lively neighborhood for the people of Herzogenbuchsee – directly at the entrance to the town. Its central location makes the site is an ideal location for growth within the municipality. The area is easily accessible by public and private transport. No cultivated land will be lost with the development of the site, but instead, an area which is already built-up will be upgraded.
The Bahnhof West neighborhood will be built on the site where agricultural products were still being produced, sold and stored up until 2019. This will be a sustainable settlement and economic development of the Municipality of Herzogenbuchsee, the region and the Canton. Soon, the neighborhood will be an attractive, lively place to live and work – easily accessible by public transport and private vehicle traffic.
Bahnhof West, a lively neighborhood that cleverly combines the old and the new. Generous green spaces and play areas are part of the development concept and are planned for the city levels and the rooftops. Typical industrial buildings, such as the bottling plant, the boiler house and the Moschti building will be integrated into the new neighborhood and used as residential, commercial and service areas. New smaller and larger buildings will harmoniously complement the existing buildings and create additional space. Our goal: a piece of the city with everything you could wish for.
Living, working, lingering and meeting one another in a low-traffic neighborhood with an urban flavor. The planned housing offer includes apartments and condominiums and is aimed at both young people and older people. Bahnhof West offers a modern, urban home in Herzogenbuchsee.
The planned housing offer is aimed at a broad section of the middle class. Families, working couples, singles and seniors will feel at home in Bahnhof West - an attractive housing mix is being planned to accomodate them. A wide variety of premises such as studios, commercial and service spaces are available for business people.
The central location with its attractive apartments and condominiums will greatly increase the available housing in Herzogenbuchsee and the entire region Old and new buildings will complement each other. The neighborhood will feature a wide variety of green spaces, playgrounds and recreational areas.
A network of pedestrian and bicycle paths are part of the neighborhood development and ensure low-traffic living. Motor vehicles will be able to access the area via a new and
extended neighborhood collector road and from there, vehicles will be routed to the main road.
Well-developed commercial areas offer many opportunities for regional companies as well as for newcomers. Office and sales areas for small and large service providers are available, as well as spaces for catering, cultural activities and public services.
The neighborhood offers attractive and welcoming meeting places for everyone. A new station square is the centerpiece and the gateway to the neighborhood. Other squares and nooks are being created in the neighborhood to provide quiet refuges for residents.
Public spaces for young and old: for playing and meeting, for shopping and enjoying. Services and retail areas designed to enhance the center will be created around the new station square.
The neighborhood is extremely important for the development of Herzogenbuchsee. It will make a significant contribution to the sustainable settlement and economic development of the municipality, the region and the canton.
