Caruso St John's project for a new office building adjacent to the Hardbrücke viaduct in Zurich West will be completed at the end of November. Works to the office interiors and planting in the cantilevered balconies are complete, and ground floor retail units are currently being finished. Tenants will occupy the building early in the new year.
Construction has completed on the Falconhoven Apartment Building in central Antwerp. The building contains fifty-one apartments, as well as shops, offices, and a kindergarten, and is the first completed building in a city block designed in collaboration with Flemish architects Bovenbouw and ONO Architectuur, and Dutch architects Rapp + Rapp.
Construction continues on the Swiss Life Arena, the new home for the ZSC Lions ice hockey team, and Caruso St John's largest project to date. The in situ concrete exposed shell of the building is currently being built and the project is set to complete in 2022.
