Südpark is located near the main Railway Station Basel SBB. The total ground floor level is designed to accommodate shops (since August 2011 the Swiss Supermarket Coop is settled in 70% of the ground floor area). The upper floors are designed around the first floor's enclosed garden. The lower part (4 floors) in the south-west side of the volume accommodates several office spaces. The higher part (9 floors) at the north-east side of the volume accommodates 100 apartments for elderly people, an elderly home with 28 beds and an internal restaurant. The inner yard is part of the elderly house. The façade of the whole building exists of a silver broom texture. The tetris like windows on the north, east and west façade make it hard to read the floor plan from the outside. The south façade is a spread of different sizes of windows at apparent places.
