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.
This five-storey building is located in the heart of the lively and vibrant old town of Geneva, just a few metres from the historic centre and the imposing St. Peter’s Cathedral.
The ensemble, built in 1880, radiates pure charm. It is located in the historic centre of Geneva. Around 1,100 sqm of office space and around 570 sqm of sales and storage space are spread over 6 floors.
The wooden shop fronts and the stately designed entrances underline the charming, historical aesthetics.
The ensemble is accessed via one staircase and one lift.
There is retail space on the ground floor and partly on the first floor, the office space is distributed over the floors above.
The areas of the ensemble at Rue Verdaine 10/12 are all equipped to a high standard. For example, parts of the offices have high-quality parquet flooring. Of course, office kitchens are provided on each floor.
The division of space and the expansion of the approximately 1,100 sqm of office and medical practice space can be flexibly arranged according to agreement and availability.
The ground and first floors contain dining and retail space, which is let to high-quality retailers and a traditional patisserie.
The offices are used by companies from the financial sector and a renowned law firm, among others.
No wonder, the address in the heart of the old town is extremely prestigious. At the same time, the colourful mix underlines the special character of the building and its surroundings.
This is where "classic Geneva" lives and works – not in a “cold” office district with glass towers.
The ensemble is located in the centre of the old town just a few steps away from St. Peter’s Cathedral. The cultural and intellectual heart of the city once beat here. John Calvin preached and taught here. The Place du Bourg-de-Four and the Palais de Justice are also in the neighbourhood. The location benefits from its excellent connections.
Whether on foot, by public transport or in your own car – the Saint-Antoine car park with over 440 parking spaces is in the immediate vicinity. Local amenities, shopping and recreational opportunities are correspondingly good here in the old town, and the business address is first-class.
