The Street Terrace

“Which terrace?”

- Marco W., Fitness Center Manager

The public terrace above the two-story base of the Airgate building offers an amazing view over Thurgauerstrasse. This is where office employees can enjoy a Manhattan-like experience of smoking a cigarette between the high-rise buildings developed by the crème de la crème of Zuricher real estate. It is, however, an insider’s tip: the manager of the fitness studio underneath was not even aware of its existence. An employee says that he comes down to the terrace five or six times a day from his office – usually alone, sometimes with other employees – and enjoys the calm. The street noise is much softer than down on the sidewalk.
