Roche lays foundation stone for highest building in Switzerland

Roche is about to realize the biggest building project in its 115 year history. The office tower in Basel will be 178 meters high and surmount the Zürich Prime Tower, the currently highest building in Switzerland, by 52 meters.


What matters about «Bau 1» is not records but function, said President of the Board Franz Humer during the laying of the foundation stone on Wednesday. The building will cost CHF550 million and will house over 2000 workers, who are currently spread all over Basel, in its 42 floors. Employees from the sectors research, development, production and marketing will work in the new building.

The structural work will be finished in December 2014 and the tower ready in the second half of 2015. The Basel star architects Herzog & de Meuron designed the «Bau 1». This is their fourth project for Roche.

Roche counts the investment as a sign of confidence in Basel, where the pharma and diagnostics group employs around 9000 of its 80'000 employees worldwide. Humer is convinced that Switzerland will remain one of the best spots for science and innovation, as long as the currently existing advantages continue to be developed.

not sure if i said it b4...

i think the design would perfectly fit into Bangkok's skyline
and there it would be "nothing special"

but i'm happy about any highrise in Basel, and i already got some vantage points
in mind, at german side, to get good shots when it finally rise above ground :-)

btw, so far my fav one is the tower next to St.Jacob Stadium,
but i wish it was built at least twice as high.

Bald dürfte nun das EG erstellt werden.

Since the stated goal of concentrating the various offices leased around the city will not be achieved by the building there is hope that when they finish this one they will build a few smaller ones in addition. I do hope for a interesting ensemble.

See these two slides from Jaques Herzog (at at talk)

As you can see in the titel the tower is being constructed by the company Roche, one of the biggest pharmaceutical company in the world with headquarter in Basel.
