15 new chalets to be built in Saanen
vgm invest ag is planning the construction of 15 houses on the von-Grünigen-Matte at the entrance to Saanen. At least 1/6th of the usable space is earmarked for locals - errr- let's see at around 16% that should just about solve the local housing crisis; yes, the compassion for local needs is overwhelming. They are also planning underground parking for about 110 to 140 spaces for the apartments and a public parking for 90 to 100 cars (note to the planners, make that 110 and 90 so the spaces can fit more than a Fiat Panda, unlike the Unter Gstaad parking lot). The plan goes before the people of Saanenland in December 2010.
