Cooperative Newbuilds

With your GenossenSchaffen subscription you’re the first to hear about new cooperative listings in Zurich. Apart from ads for individual flats there’s also an alternative route to a cooperative flat: newbuilds. Cooperatives regularly replace older buildings with newer, often larger ones that contain more flats. Sometimes dated terraced houses have to make space for larger apartment blocks. In any case, such projects mean that a large number of flats go online in one go – this increases your odds of obtaining a cooperative apartment. All you need to do is find the projects on the websites of the cooperatives and apply at the right moment. To help you we have searched the internet for cooperative newbuilds. You find the results below, whereby we have roughly ordered them chronologically by expected move-in date.
