Urban Development

Four ways to a prosperous and cosmopolitan Zürich

The Office for Urban Development contains the four subdivisions; Office for Cross-cultural Issues, City and Neighborhood Development, Economic Development, and the Office for Foreign Affairs. In interdisciplinary teams the four subdivisions work out strategic guidelines on social, economic and socio-demographic matters, as well as fostering an open-minded and prosperous Zürich. The office stays in close contact with Zürich’s citizens and enterprises, while addressing the current questions about actual urban development projects. With its various activities the four teams contribute to strengthening the brand «Zürich» in- and outside Switzerland.
