The site in Dietikon is directly accessible from the motorway and is located in the Silbern industrial area. The industrial area is well served by a city bus line that runs every 15 minutes.

Site overview

The entire site is composed of various building types, which have been somewhat expanded over the years. Sufficient parking places are available in the underground garage as well as outdoors. Rails run along Riedstrasse, which indicate its former purely industrial use. To make the area in front of the business units more attractive for passers-by and customers, the tracks will be removed. Additional seating with greenery will spruce up the walkway.

All of the areas are located in the industrial zone with permits for commerce and services.

The Retail site is located at the entrance to the Silbern-Lerzen-Stierenmatt (SLS) industrial area of the city of Dietikon. Various well-known and very popular companies in the retail industry have settled at the site as long-term tenants.

The high traffic volume forced the city of Dietikon to take measures that have been taken up again in the cantonal design plan for the Silbern area. This includes an approach that aims to reduce retail to a smaller part of the area. The land parcels of the HIAG site are a part of this. The focus is therefore on maintaining and completing the existing retail offer. To make a stroll by the various retail units more pleasant, some work has been planned to update the site. Seating and quiet areas as well as new greenery will be provided for. Implementation of this renovation work is to be finished by the end of 2015.


The area of today's Retail site in Dietikon was undeveloped until 1982.

  • In 1980, a municipal vote took place. The purchase of the industrial land parcels (category No. 9700/11’907 m²) on Riedstrasse by the company HOLZCO Schalungstechnik AG was proposed.
  • In 1982, the HOLZCO Schalungstechnik AG buildings were completed and began operations.
  • HIAG Handel also settled there with storage areas.
  • However, for profitability reasons, the warehouse at this well-developed site was closed and moved, so that the premises could be put to better use.
  • In 1984, LIPO became a tenant at the site. The cornerstone for retail tenants at the site was thus laid.
  • In 1999, Media Markt followed as a tenant.
  • The HOLZCO company remained at the site until 2002 as an economically important company. However, the existing space had become too small. For example, a delivery truck could only approach in reverse to make a delivery. In addition, the railway was no longer operational. A change of location was becoming increasingly necessary.
  • Athleticum was won over as a tenant for the vacated area.
  • Today, there is a very good mix of tenants that complement each other, and the renovation of the surroundings will increase the quality of the site for customers and employees of the resident companies.
