Facts

  • The original design plan showed a 82 meter tall tower with 24 floors but according to the 'Heimatschutzes' a tower of such height would have had a too much impact on the city's silhouette and the height was reduced.
  • The final design received a 69% approval rate in a referendum held among the citizens of Basel in the early 1970s.
