CONSTRUCTION WORK & RESTRICTIONS
Impact on the store entrance as well as our Bründl shops
We began demolishing our annex on the south side on 6 April 2020. As of mid-May and until the end of November 2020, Nikolaus-Gassner-Straße from our Flagship Store to the Tauernhof will be blocked off.
Here you will find all the milestones we have achieved, from groundbreaking until the grand reopening.
You can also follow @bruendlsports & #bruendlflagship2021 on Instagram to keep up with construction progress.
After a two-year planning period, construction had been planned with meticulous attention to every detail and was scheduled to begin on 16 March 2020. But due to the totally new situation (i.e. the corona pandemic), the start had to be postponed. Restrictions in all areas of daily life, particularly those affecting the building trade & tourism, the high investment volume… Days-long discussions, evaluations, re-planning begin.
We began by demolishing the building on the south side. It’s still open to question when we will actually begin the building phase.
Why we intend to follow through on our building project despite the current situation:
- We intend to live up to our responsibilities and keep our promises to the local community, neighbors, general contractors, craftsmen etc.
- We believe in the future of extraordinary in-person shopping experiences in a compelling retail setting
- Even in difficult times such as these, our values – courage, confidence, vision – continue to be embodied in our actions
- After the corona crisis especially, we want to be even stronger and more unique than ever
In the last two weeks, our building on the south side has been almost completely removed.
With the completion of the demolition works of the old buildings and the breakdown of Nikolaus Gassner Straße the expansion of the underground parking starts.

the concrete ceiling of the first floor is done and in the underground parking the first lines and wires are being installed.
Schon vier Etagen des Rohbaus sind fertiggestellt und die Baustelle vor dem Store wieder immer kleiner.
Die Straße vor unserem Flagshipstore wird wieder geöffnet. Der Rohbau ist kurz vor der Fertigstellung und man kann bereits die Dimension des neuen Flagshipstores und sogar die neue Dachterrasse mit einmaliger Aussicht erkennen.
Now we can also see progress inside our new flagship store. Even access to the roof terrace is possible already. Even though just for construction worker.
Neben den Fertigstellungen der Haustechnik von UG1 bis OG3, enstehen schon die ersten Wände für die Werkstätten im Untergeschoss.
Ein Highlight des neuen Flagshipstores wird sichtbar. Der neue Glassteg mit Blick über Kaprun und auf das Kitzsteinhorn wird angeliefert und im vierten Stock installiert.
