RE Capital, the privately owned, pan-European property investment, asset and development management company is moving its Geneva business to a prestigious new location in the city. The company’s new offices will be located at No. 6 Passage des Lions.
The site comprises an ensemble of five historical buildings, formerly occupied by UBS, which are bounded by rue de la Confédération, rue du Commerce, rue du Rhône, and the historic Passage des Lions.
“In 2009, UBS launched a competition for projects to transform these structures in order to bring them up to contemporary standards of use, functionality, safety, and energy efficiency,” says Johannes Gerzain, asset manager at RE Capital. “This revitalisation of an historic district is very much aligned with RE Capital’s own approach to property development and we are excited to be moving into this beautiful area of Geneva.”
“Due to RE Capital’s ongoing success,” says Newman Leech, CEO of RE Capital, “we opted to relocate to a place that will fit our business growth demands, while also highlighting our brand commitment to urban contemporary renewal, respectful preservation of historic sites, and the development of buildings that are designed to provide a significant reduction in the energy needed for heating, cooling and general functioning. We are long-term believers in the office as a part of working life and we are delighted to be able to offer our valued Geneva team an optimal working environment.”
