Implenia acquires 20,000 m of land

Thanks to its expertise, Implenia will play a significant role in the development of the Steinacker district in Kloten

Dietlikon, 17 March 2020 – Implenia has purchased two major plots, together covering 20,000m2, in Kloten’s Steinacker district. The previous owner, not-for-profit foundation “Hans A. Bill”, chose to sell to Implenia primarily because of the Group’s extensive expertise in site development. The foundation is thus helping the town of Kloten to realise its “Vision Steinacker” project.

Kloten has been working for many years to improve the balance between places to live and places to work in the town. The Steinacker district, which lies to the east of the town centre, is an important but as yet underused element in Kloten’s urban development programme. The undeveloped plots acquired by Implenia in January play a key role in the transformation of the area into a mixed-use district.

Canton Zurich’s work on extending the Glatttal railway from the airport freight depot into the Steinacker district and up to the edge of Bassersdorf will further enhance the district's appeal. As part of the rail project, flood protection along the Altbach river is being improved, the river bed is being renaturalised and access to the river optimised. The riverside pedestrian and bike path is also being widened. In parallel with the Glatttal railway extension, Implenia expects to finish the first stage of district redevelopment by 2027. Implenia is very happy to be working closely with Kloten’s civic authorities and other landowners in the district to help develop the plots it has bought and transform the whole Steinacker district.
