"uptownBasel" - the competence centre for industry 4.0.

With 100,000 m2 of lettable space, "uptownBasel" offers outstanding location conditions for innovative companies with modern jobs, benefitting their digital transformation.

The company Fankhauser Arealentwicklungen AG has established a competence center for industry 4.0 in the former Schorenareal in Arlesheim, which sets new standards in the Basel economic region.

Flexibility, speed, networks, innovation and resource efficiency are the decisive criteria to be successful in the future. By developing a new generation of infrastructure and modular, flexible buildings, companies in the field of data sciences and analytics, additive manufacturing (3D printing) and precision engineering will be able to settle down by 2020.

Also smaller companies benefit from the synergies in the site's infrastructure and service offerings, which can thereby optimize their market appearance and access to talents.

The office and production rooms offer space for up to 2000 workplaces and are easy to reach via direct motorway connection and public transportation. The nature park along the river Birs as well as experience-oriented catering opportunities and an attractive selection of leisure time activities on site ensure satisfied and efficient employees. 

uptownBasel AG is a source of inspiration in an inspiring environment, is committed, innovative, productive and has the potential to become the first "smart manufacturing hub" in Northwestern Switzerland. © FANKHAUSER
