Parking Garage of the Future

The planned Mobility Hub Zug Nord (MHZN) is not an ordinary parking garage. It forms the entrance to the Tech Cluster Zug (TCZ) via the curved pedestrian bridge but is also the gateway to the city. It is a building directly connected to the Zug-Baar motorway bypass and to a public transport network that in the future will no longer consist only of trains or buses.

At the MHZN, for example, visitors will change to a self-driven bus, which will take them either to the TCZ or to the city. In addition, car park users can rent e-bikes or e-scooters at any time to cover individual routes with great precision. The fact that such a hub will be equipped with charging stations for electric vehicles is hardly worth mentioning these days. The MHZN will, however, be designed in such a way that in the future it will have a fully automated parking system with self-parking vehicles.

Well thought-out concepts such as these are what makes the MHZN an intelligent building. The initial construction has already started. The demolition of the old SFS warehouse and retail building was finished at the end of March 2020. The opening of the MHZN with an integrated café and a shop of HandwerkStadt Zug is planned for August 2021. The MHZN is intended not the least to advance the development of Zug as a Smart City by testing and refining novel mobility concepts.

The Tech Cluster Zug is a development project which will transform the factory site of V-Zug over many phases into an innovative cluster of urban industry. Since 2013, Hosoya Schaefer Architects are working on the masterplan and transformation.
