Economic structural change will transform the port and industrial area around the ‘Dreiländereck’ in the coming years. Huge areas can be redeveloped or repurposed.
The three cities of Huningue, Weil am Rhein and Basel have recognized the opportunity that synergies arise with joint planning. They seize the unique opportunity to develop a large area in a coordinated and cross-border, sustainable and innovative way. The overarching joint planning and the coordinated individual planning of the cities will allow the cities to grow closer together in the coming years.
The project area at the ‘Dreiländereck’ includes neighborhoods of the cities of Huningue, Weil am Rhein, Basel and Saint-Louis. The Palmrain Bridge in the north and the Dreirosen Bridge in the south border the area. The two bridges connect Germany and France as well as two quarters of the city of Basel.
This area covers a total of 597 hectares. On about 82 hectares of it (approx. 120 football fields), space for 20,000 jobs and inhabitants is to be created in the next decades.
The 3Land in change
Only in the last century did the area grow more and more together with the three neighboring towns of Weil am Rhein, Huningue and Basel. Today, it forms a continuous urban area with a long (shared) port and industrial history. Embark on a journey through time in the 3Land!
