Planning permission granted for "NIDO" residential development in Ostermundigen

Planning permission for the "NIDO" residential development in Ostermundigen has now been granted, representing another important milestone for this project. This timber construction contains a total of 20 light and airy apartments for private ownership, ideal for couples and single-person households. Marketing of the attractive residential units – which are expected to be ready for occupation in autumn 2024 – is now under way. 
The planning permission granted by Ostermundigen municipal council for the "NIDO" project at Rütiweg, developed by Steiner AG, has now become legally effective. Due to the current delivery times for prefabricated timber elements, construction work is set to begin in the second quarter of 2023. The building will blend harmoniously into the surrounding neighbourhood and will be reached via access balconies. The attractive studios, 2.5- and 3.5-room apartments boast optimum views as well as spacious balconies and terraces. Ceiling heights of 2.70 m will ensure plenty of natural light and a pleasant ambience. 
Timber load-bearing structure
The "NIDO" project is based on the use of timber, a sustainable construction material. Featuring modern building services, this timber construction will provide a future-oriented home for people who value sustainable living. With its efficient technology, future residents will also benefit from low running and maintenance costs. The tranquil garden is planted with native shrubs and trees, thus making a valuable contribution to biodiversity. The low-maintenance private gardens offer a high recreational value with their neat gravel courtyards bordered by espalier fruit trees and greenery. In addition to the gardens for the ground-floor apartments, the outdoor space and access balconies will also offer spaces where residents can interact.
An urban municipality with a future
Ostermundigen offers everything you can expect from a thriving municipality close to a city: restaurants, schools, shops, small businesses, sports grounds and training facilities are all within walking distance. A development hub of the municipality of Ostermundigen is situated in the immediate vicinity, as is the future Bern-Ostermundigen tram line, which promises to make the site even more attractive in the future. Bern railway station is just 20 minutes away by bus, enabling residents to reach neighbouring towns and cities with ease. Thanks to the bypass and the nearby Bern-Wankdorf motorway junction, places such as Biel and Thun are just 30 minutes away.
