The vehemence with which the green-liberal municipal Council Sven Sobernheim suddenly argued, was a surprise to all. In a rapid speed, he took the place of sentence to sentence, barely caught up with air, growing louder and louder. His bottom line: you Either say no to the new city hall bridge made of concrete, or to endorse, call but not even a few umbrellas.
Only a few minutes previously had suggests barely anything on a dedicated counter-speech hung. Municipal councillors and councils agreed that The new building project of the city hall bridge, consider it as useful. Only the passage from the wine to the vegetables of the bridge, as it is called in the vernacular, was probably too tight. With an Amendment, and requested the city Council to ensure that this is wider.
Council Unanimously adopted the motion and approved for the project planning of the new building, additional 2.76 million Swiss francs. With this additional money, the project team drawn up by the company Bänziger Partner AG, 10:8 architects and F. Preisig AG and construction project. The basic parameters: the start of construction in 2023, the end of Construction in 2026, construction costs of around CHF 32 million. The Team got in last may, the award. The city highlighted the many free surfaces and the space character.
The AL-councillor Olivia Romanelli is missing but the shadow on the square. A further heat island in Zurich the threat. Therefore, Romanelli wants the city Council is examining whether it could be possible to have some shade in the summer on the square. To plant "trees on a bridge, it would be difficult," she admitted, "but you could, for example, a delicate and degradable steel construction with roller gates are in position, a kind of market hall."
The green-liberal Sobernheim just saw this very differently. In his hastily put forward to vote, he recalled the failure of Attempts to donate the Zurich courts, in retrospect, shadow of the wind-blown umbrellas on the six-ringing place, to the torn solar sails on the Münsterhof. He was pleased when one day at the river cleaning the sun screens from the river to be fished. He requested, accordingly, the novel, Ellis advance to reject.
This opinion was shared by only his GLP colleagues. Even the SVP was surprised. This quickly presented a vote have now privatized everything "extremely dramatic," said Stephan Iten. And AL-councillor Richard Wolff spoke of a "paradoxical Intervention". That would mean: "Either a hot bridge or no bridge." The city Council accept the proposal gladly, said Wolff. With 93 to 10 votes, the order was granted finally.
