Marktgasse 70, Winterthur, Switzerland

Winterthur, Switzerland

Winterthur 2


Redevco refurbed in close cooperation with C&A the entire building which consists of in total four buildings. The whole technical installation of the building was replaced. Three façades are listed which made it extremely difficult to improve the building in terms of insulation. C&A made the whole fit-out and placed its new store concept. C&A’s GLA remained +/- the same. One direct access from the outside to the basement was closed. Together with an ecologist all flat roofs including courtyard (totally 670 sqm) were greened with local plants and bushes.
