The city of Zurich is planning schools, sports facilities and streets for a population that will increase by a good 80,000 people by 2040. However, there are a few indications that growth could slow significantly after the corona slump.

Zurich has been growing rapidly for years – which has made it necessary to build new facilities, such as the development of the university area here.

Zurich has been growing at an incredible pace for years – and yet the city had more inhabitants at the beginning of the 1960s than it does today. In 1962 a good 440,000 people lived here. The number then fell rapidly and in 1989 reached a low of 355,000. Only after the turn of the millennium did strong growth resume: in 2019 the population had reached 434,000, and it was foreseeable that the previous high from the sixties would be cracked in the first few months of 2021.
