Bern: new building – ARK 147

Project under construction
A 220-unit aparthotel, commercial accommodation and 83 rental apartments will be built by August 2021 on the former site of Gebrüder Mueller AG at Murtenstrasse 147 in Bern. Marti Gesamtleistungen AG will undertake this project as the sole contractor.
Construction work on the new building began in May 2019 and it will be handed over to the clients in August 2021.

Project description
The location
The former industrial zone in Ausserholligen is a focal point for development in the city of Bern. The pioneering ARK 143 project laid the foundations for the reconstruction of this area: it is being transformed into a modern city district designed in harmony with environmental principles, with excellent access for both private and public transport. Facilities include a restaurant and shopping outlets together with a fitness centre and the nearby Bremgarten Forest for leisure and recreation. A
daycare centre for children is located in the district, and kindergartens as well as schools are within walking distance.

The project
The ARK147 project comprises rental apartments ranging in size from 1½ to 4½ rooms. Each apartment has a large loggia, an open kitchen, one or two bathrooms, and connections for a washing machine and tumbler-dryer directly in the apartment. Occupancy of the various units is scheduled from 2020 inwards.
