The Nauentor development has set itself ambitious goals. In place of the Postreiter building, which is currently largely inaccessible to the public, a public space is to be created as a link between the railroad station, Nauenstrasse and Solothurnerstrasse – a lively, urban and well-connected urban building block. The site’s accessibility and connection to the existing urban fabric are of central importance. A new development of this area must aim to create added value for the city, its residents and the public space.
