Steiner AG today received official notice to proceed with the attractive Landskronhof housing development in the heart of Basel. The project comprises the construction of a five-storey block housing 15 prestigious 2.5- to 5.5-room apartments for private ownership. Future residents will enjoy all the benefits of a contemporary fit-out, spacious floorplans and inviting outdoor spaces. The apartments are scheduled for occupation in spring 2022.
These “dream flats”, to be created over the next two years, will take shape around a sheltered inner courtyard at a prime location amid the vibrant St. Johann quarter. The modern new-build scheme is being implemented by Steiner AG, one of Switzerland's leading real estate companies. With planning permission already granted for the residential complex on the site, Steiner AG's project development experts collaborated with architectural practice HHF Architekten GmbH – on board since inception – and a specialist designer team to further refine and optimise the project. The finished scheme is a textbook example of inner-city densification by virtue of its location in an inner courtyard previously occupied by garages and parking spaces. Stefan Gabriel, Team Leader of Real Estate Development at Steiner AG, is delighted to be going ahead with the project: "Today marks a major milestone and the culmination of a very intensive design phase. The project demonstrates in an exemplary way how urban densification can be carried out within a major city despite various challenges."
High residential amenity and quality of life
The Landskronhof project offers exclusive homes at a central location near the banks of the Rhine, excellent public transport access (bus and tram stops are close by) and a high degree of privacy thanks to the secluded and sheltered setting around an internal courtyard. Families, couples and single people of all ages will relish the exciting and attractive living experience. The new condominiums will be located at the heart of the bustling St. Johann quarter, only a few minutes' walk from the spacious Kannenfeldpark. From here, the public transport system provides fast and convenient services to Basel city centre, the main railway station and the EuroAirport. The nearby motorway junction can also be reached within a matter of minutes. The up-and-coming St. Johann district offers a wide range of shopping facilities plus numerous restaurants, bars and cafés to cater for all occasions and tastes.
Demand for the apartments is very positive: eight of the 15 flats have already been sold or are reserved.
