Meret Oppenheim Tower, Basel

Herzog & de Meuron 

SBB is one of the largest landowners in Switzerland. This national railway company owns land in prime locations of the urban centers across the country. This previously underutilized potential of real estate has been increasingly developed in the last years, densifying the urban centers around the main stations. Such an urban renewal project is the Meret Oppenheim Tower, located in the Gundeldinger Quarter of Basel. The tower is part of the Südpark ensemble – also promoted by SBB and completed by Herzog
