Zug, 15 June 2021 – The Metall Zug Group is investing in a new part of town for an industrial ecosystem on the historic V-ZUG site in Zug. With the Tech Cluster Zug, it is setting an example for the future of industry. Thanks to the concrete implementation of new sustainability concepts, an attractive innovation quarter with great charisma is being created. Westhive AG is also part of this extraordinary transformation. In close cooperation with Tech Cluster Zug AG, Westhive is opening a flexible workspace location of over 2,000 square metres in the middle of the site.

The starting point for the Tech Cluster Zug (TCZ) project is the strategic renewal of the V-ZUG factory site. The modernisation and spatial concentration of V-ZUG’s production will enable additional industrial companies, start-ups, technology-related services, training facilities and housing to be established here.

In a light-flooded, completely renovated and air-conditioned shed hall, Westhive is creating more than 2,000 square metres of flexible workspace, most of it in the form of private offices. In addition to spacious lounges and a first-class meeting infrastructure, Westhive’s workspace includes a coffee bar, a fully equipped team kitchen and a dedicated gym exclusively for members. The rooftop terrace is the perfect place to meet during or after work, with fresh air and spectacular views of the Alps. «We are delighted to have found such a suitable location in Zug,» says Bruno Rambaldi, co-founder of Westhive. «And with Metall Zug we have an ideal partner for the realisation.»

The Tech Cluster Zug will be supplied with all the necessary energy in a climate-neutral way via a multi-energy hub that is unique in Switzerland. In the coming years, new outdoor spaces with squares, alleys and meadows will be created, as well as new neighbourhood amenities with restaurants, daycare centres, conference facilities, etc. «We want to develop a sustainable piece of the city that combines production, research and development, commerce and living in a small space with a high urban development quality,» says David Carnier, who is responsible for the Westhive project on behalf of Tech Cluster Zug AG, a subsidiary of Metall Zug AG. «The Flexible Workspace is an integral part of this. The concept and implementation of Westhive convinced us right away.»

Westhive Zug will open its doors in late summer 2022 in the Tech Cluster Zug at Oberallmendstrasse 18, 6300 Zug.
