Rosental Mitte will be a lively neighbourhood with short commutes for employees who want to live in the city of Basel.

The wide variety of housing planned has the potential to accommodate approximately 1,100–2,200 residents and ranges from cooperative housing to residences in the future high-rise buildings, meaning there will be housing available in a broad range of price segments. A third of the housing built will be affordable housing.

The new housing, ranging from the perimeter of the site all the way to high-rise accommodation, will tie into the existing neighbourhood. Some of this living space will be built over the next few years, but most of it will be built after 2025.
