Schaan – The cornerstone for the Zoschg development was laid on Monday at the former Thöny beverage site. The tallest building in the centre of Schaan is scheduled to open at the beginning of 2020.

The cornerstone was laid in the form of a tin box whose contents include an empty Löwengarten beer bottle, a Löwengarten sign, and a Löwengarten bottle opener. As the Volksblatt reports, the objects symbolize the beverage firm Thöny, which once stood on this site.

The Zoschg development will consist of two interconnected parts. A covered arcade on the ground floor will house stores and a restaurant, while the rest of the building will contain office space and residential apartments. At 22 metres high, the complex will be the tallest building in the centre of Schaan.

Given that the Zoschg development is a flagship project for developing Schaan’s urban centre, it is only fitting that Schaan’s mayor, Daniel Hilti, was present at the cornerstone ceremony. Josef Quaderer from the investor group Agora Immobilient Anstalt, spoke about a milestone and praised the efficient approval procedure. He said that the “striking building” will stand out in the centre of Schaan.
