Dreiländer Galerie in Weil-am-Rhein, Germany, wins planning permission

Chapman Taylor is pleased to report that Dreiländer Galerie, a brand new retail development in Weil-am-Rhein, Germany, has been awarded planning permission, with an anticipated opening date of late 2019.

Dreiländer Galerie, or ‘Three Countries Gallery’, will be a 55,00m² GBA shopping and services centre in the German town of Weil-am-Rhein, close to the meeting point of the French and Swiss borders with Germany.

Containing three levels of retail and two of parking for 560 cars, as well as a kindergarten on the roof, it is intended to attract visitors from across the Swiss border in Basel, aided by a new tram line from there complete with turning loop.

Built into a steep site with a 15 metre drop known locally as ‘Hangkante’ or ‘Edge of Slope’, the centre is planned as a multi-national shopping destination.

Chapman Taylor’s Düsseldorf studio, together with the investor CEMAGG GmbH, won a competition to provide a new shopping centre in Weil-am-Rhein in 2014. The local council voted to sell the one hectare site to CEMAGG so that Chapman Taylor’s design can be realised.
