Infrastructure

We create attractive, flexible living spaces that are integrated into urban and neighbourhood development and which take the spatial and urban planning environment into account.

Property und Asset Management

The portfolio of the group company Swiss Prime Site Immobilien consists of first-rate properties with a stable value in prime locations, primarily with office and services floor space, in the most densely populated regions and cities in Switzerland. As its core business, Swiss Prime Site invests in high-quality, socially beneficial and environmentally friendly sites and properties. Conversions and developments create living spaces for customers and society as a whole that are in line with market needs and fit for the future.

We ensure a balanced and attractive mix of tenants, which adds value to our properties and sites and benefits the users, local residents and public spaces. Furthermore, a wide range of different tenants helps to diversify risks and secure long-term rental income.

Whenever possible, we contribute to the design of public zones, green spaces and mobility offers. When constructing new buildings and converting existing ones, we aim to design open spaces and paths that can be used by everyone. Further, we provide charging stations for electric vehicles in parking garages and other locations. At the end of 2021, the property portfolio had 51 electric charging stations with 80 charging points. At the beginning of 2022, a further 50 e-parking spaces were installed in the Shopping Arena St. Gallen alone.

FUTURE- AND MARKET-ORIENTED NEW BUILDINGS AND RENOVATION PROJECTS

We place great emphasis on environmental, health and safety factors, which are becoming increasingly important in the face of the climate crisis. We design our sites and buildings in accordance with the principles of climate-adapted construction. With our new construction project JED in Schlieren, we are creating a property that represents a counter-concept to high-tech real estate development. JED uses the solid construction method and has especially thick external walls. 

In the field of life sciences, start-ups or even established companies will one day be able to begin their research and work at various locations in Switzerland from the first day of the contract. Swiss Prime Site is making this possible through its partnership with Superlab Suisse. The Swiss start-up has set itself the goal of being the first address for life science companies when it comes to offering increasingly rare research and laboratory space. Together with Swiss Prime Site, the young company has developed a concept to roll out a network of sites throughout Switzerland. Superlab Suisse has the necessary know-how and knows the research processes in great detail. Swiss Prime Site has the necessary real estate knowledge and the competence as well as the development resources to contribute the associated «hardware».

So far, Swiss Prime Site and Superlab have identified two suitable locations for the first fully fitted out laboratory and research spaces with accompanying operational services. When finding locations, proximity to existing «clusters» or «ecosystems» in the life sciences sector plays a major role. Based on its history, the Basel region, for example, with its prominent pharmaceutical industry, is extremely well suited. Stücki Park in Basel already houses a laboratory building and a technology park that brings together various start-ups from the life science sector. Another cutting-edge building is planned, featuring laboratory and research space from Superlab Suisse. The second site will be built in Schlieren, near Zurich. A life sciences cluster has evolved on the site of a former railway carriage factory. Next door to this, Swiss Prime Site is planning a modern and remarkably sustainable new construction project on the JED site.

Another example is our new building YOND in Zurich. Completed in 2020 the property offers space for small, medium-sized and large businesses in the service, creative and trade industries, as well as for start-ups. The open building design and communal spaces encourage interaction and collaboration between tenants, fostering synergies and creating a dynamic ecosystem. The site also includes gastronomy and healthcare offerings, everyday goods retailers and a daycare centre.

Messeturm Basel was completely renovated in 2021 according to energy and sustainability aspects. The new office spaces were converted into ecological and healthy office worlds using environmentally friendly pollutant-free materials in accordance with the Cradle to Cradle® principle. For example, the Cradle to Cradle certified wall paint «Airlite» was used and VOC-free (Volatile Organic Compounds) Cradle to Cradle certified cast floors were used in the renovation. This makes it a symbol for contemporary working models today. With numerous shared services and attractive lounges and meeting areas, the glass tower forms its own ecosystem in the middle of the city of Basel. The Cradle to Cradle principle was also applied for the first time in other selected properties. For example, in the Swiss Prime Site offices in the Prime Tower Zurich.

Objects

Our portfolio is made up of high-quality properties in prime locations with stable value, primarily occupied by commercial tenants and worth a total of around CHF 13 billion.
