The world looks to Geneva. The United Nations has its European headquarters here. The WHO, the WTO, the ICRC and the UNHCR are at home in Geneva. Over 250 NGOs with consultative status at the UN operate offices here. And 176 nations are present with permanent representations or missions.

Moreover, Geneva is also a watchmaking and financial metropolis. The Global Financial Centres Index lists Geneva as the second most important financial centre in Switzerland and number 5 in Europe. Watches from the canton of Geneva are considered the best in the world. The Geneva area has gained an international reputation as a scientific centre thanks to CERN.

Geneva also knows the value of quality of life. The spectacular location on Lake Geneva, the unique alpine panorama, numerous parks and a wide range of cultural activities all combine to ensure this.

The seven-storey, historic commercial building is located in the historic business centre of Geneva on the edge of the old town.

Epochal architecture and renowned address

The prestigious, historic corner property was built in 1887 and last completely renovated in 2002. During this process, all interiors were brought up to the latest standards and underwent extensive technical updates. Since then, the building has been cared for in great detail.

Today it offers modern offices in a first-class prime location on 1,173 sqm. The architecture of this stylish building, with its French windows so typical of this era, is thoroughly representative of the period.

The ground floor houses high-quality retail outlets. And last but not least, the building on the edge of the old town impresses with its outstanding location in the heart of Geneva’s business centre. The Rhône, the left bank of the lake and the renowned shopping street Rue du Rhône are only a few steps away.
