The PAV: Geneva's future city-centre
With a wide range of spaces for offices, shops, services, restaurants, and cafés, Pont-Rouge is the new business district in Geneva. Located in the heart of the Praille-Acacias-Vernets (PAV) neighbourhood, it is home to several renowned companies, including KPMG, EY, Crédit Agricole-next bank, and Swisscom. Pictet bank will also be moving into the neighbourhood by 2025, in a tower that will be almost 90 metres high and accommodate 2,500 people. Housing is also planned in the area.
Like the Prime Tower in Zurich, Swiss Prime Site Immobilien is building Alto Pont-Rouge, an elegant building geared towards companies and businesses. From the summer of 2023 onwards, companies and businesses will be able to move into high-quality, modular, and bright spaces.
Designed by brodbeck roulet architectes associés, Alto is in keeping with the Pont-Rouge neighbourhood’s architectural style. It differs widely, however, thanks to a reinterpretation of the façades which allow for ample natural light to flood the spaces. A central atrium – a grand and unique space – double-height floors, and special attention paid to the quality of the finishings used give it a striking character.
Its access to public transport and soft mobility puts it squarely at the heart of a vast, ultra-connected network. Moving into Alto Pont-Rouge means choosing a signature building in the heart of Geneva’s most accessible district.
Lancy Pont-Rouge: A place to live, too
Built close to the business centre, the new Adret Pont-Rouge neighbourhood is also an absolutely prime location. Large areas are reserved for green spaces and relaxation, with a large central park and promenade linking Tivoli and le Bachet and going via Surville and Pont-Rouge.
Phase One of the programme (100 “PPE”, or condominium, flats – all sold) has provided residents with new commercial and restaurant options. This major residential project will offer a total of 15 buildings with 640 flats housing about 1,800 residents, spread across 6 hectares and 3 municipalities (Lancy, Carouge, and Geneva).
