The Lancy-Pont-Rouge train station and the Léman Express are driving strong urban growth in the Pont-Rouge district. Future tenants of the Alto building will get the benefit of this new hub of commercial, cultural, and leisure activities. With 16,000 users from 2019 and 27,000 by 2023, the Lancy-Pont-Rouge station is destined to become the western gateway to the future Étoile district.
Ideally located at the crossroads of the Geneva, Carouge, and Lancy municipalities, the Pont-Rouge district is the new metropolitan area of the canton, which continues to grow rapidly. This business district — next to the city centre and Lake Geneva — is where Alto Pont-Rouge will be built. The new building will complete the development of the neighbourhood, which has already gained strong momentum from companies such as KPMG, Procter & Gamble, Rolex, Cargill, Banque Pictet, and BCGE.
The appeal of this address is clear. Pont-Rouge and its surroundings already offer a host of amenities: the residential areas of Les Adrets and Lancy, shops and restaurants — the shopping centre and La Praille stadium are just a stone’s throw away — as well as many services that guarantee entertainment day and night. And there is an excellent quality of life to be found in this neighbourhood, with its tree-lined public spaces and the Aïre and Drize rivers, formerly covered, now above ground once more.

With direct access to the Léman Express and the motorway, Alto Pont-Rouge will be unrivalled in Geneva in terms of accessibility and transport options. The Lancy-Pont-Rouge railway station is undoubtedly the site’s greatest asset, allowing Alto commuters to shave precious minutes off their travel time.
The Léman Express serves 45 stations in the Swiss cantons of Geneva and Vaud, the French departments of Ain and Haute-Savoie. Six trains per hour connect the Lancy-Pont-Rouge railway station to the rest of the network, including four Léman Express and two RegioExpress trains.
The Lancy-Pont-Rouge station is a regional transport hub. It is the connection point for many bus routes and tram lines, which serve the various districts of the Canton of Geneva. Bicycle paths and bicycle parking spaces are also provided to encourage greener ways of getting around.
Located at the exit of Geneva’s bypass motorway, Alto Pont-Rouge has three underground parking levels, the second and third reserved for the building’s users. Furthermore, the adjoining Étoile park-and-ride facility offers fare subscriptions, including a parking space coupled with a travel pass for Geneva’s public transport system.
Extremely accessible and centrally located in Geneva, Alto Pont-Rouge is a strategic address for company offices.
