Resort Dieni receives building permit

Resort Dieni Development AG has received a building permit from the municipality of Tujetsch for the construction of Resort Dieni.

A new part of the village with 13 buildings is to be built in Dieni/Sedrun with direct access to public transport and the slopes of the SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun (ski-in/ski-out).

“With the building permit now granted for our groundbreaking project, we can for the first time realize a larger construction project on the Graubünden side of the Andermatt-Sedrun destination,” says Raphael Krucker, CEO of Andermatt Swiss Alps AG, the parent company of Resort Dieni Development AG. “After our planning application has been thoroughly examined, we can now start the detailed planning.”

In a unique location at the end of the valley in Sedrun/Dieni, 13 buildings with 410 hotel rooms are to be built by 2029 on the site of the current parking lot opposite the Dieni valley station of the SkiArena Andermatt-Sedrun. 119 additional residential units are for sale and are managed for tourism purposes. These are units of different sizes, from studios to 5.5-room apartments.

A total of three objections were received as part of the building permit process, two of which were withdrawn after questions had been clarified. The main concerns of the Helvetia Nostra Foundation were taken into account in the building permit, with the building decision explicitly ensuring that the residential units for sale will be used as tourist apartments and that the hotel area will be built earlier or at the same time as the apartments. This also corresponds to the client’s stated intention.

The aim for the Dieni resort is to build and operate as sustainably as possible. This includes the choice of sustainable materials, but also state-of-the-art operations. The resort is supplied with heat in a CO2-neutral manner by a wood pellet heating system; 50 percent of the roof area will be equipped with 1,500 m2 of photovoltaics. Construction is scheduled to start in 2026.
