CityGate, Basel

In November 2001, planning commenced for the repurposing of an industrial site to the east of the SBB rail station in Basel that had previously been used for milk processing. Various considerations as to its future utilization and a market analysis put the focus firmly on development of the site for service providers and residential properties. CityGate has a total of four sites, of which Sites C and D have already been completed. A 10-storey building with 117 rental apartments and commercial space is being built on Site A, while Site B will have a 12-storey residential and commercial property with 78 apartments and a hotel with 137 rooms.
