Apartments for rent
The cooperative currently has a total of 97 apartments on the Kalkbreite property. When renting out the apartments, we give special attention to creating a balanced mix of residents, as per the relevant requirements stated in the rental regulations (german only). The apartments are rented by a letting committee made up of residents, office members and external persons. The committee makes the final decision as to whom the vacant apartments will be allocated, taking into account the tenants directly adjacent to the vacant apartment, the guidelines set out in the rental regulations and the goal of creating an appropriate mix of residents.
The rent is calculated depending on the location and the individual standard of the building; the fund share amounts to CHF 260 per m2.
All apartments are rented at the moment. We advertise vacant apartments via email among the members of the cooperative, as well as available rooms in shared-flats, subletting and temporary rental options. Non-cooperative members may also apply for shared rooms and sublets. However, you must become a member within one year of moving in.

Spaces that become available will be rented out by the office. Letting does not follow any predetermined rules. However, a mix of usage must be ensured in the long-term and the areas of use must be taken into account. Especially on the ground floor, low-threshold and neighborhood-related offers are preferred. Moderate rent splitting and the possibility of turnover-based rents allow for reduced rental rates in some locations, which promotes the desired diversity and facilitate occupancy by non-profit organizations or tenants worthy of support.
