Geneva’s mega apartment project now underway – 1,000 apartments and 2,500 jobs


Last week, work started on a project to construct 1,000 apartments in Geneva. The project known as the Quartier de l’Etang will unfold over an 11 hectare site in Vernier, not far from Geneva airport.

The video above shows the commencement ceremony and a computer animation of the completed project.

The man behind it, Claude Berda, is a French-Swiss billionaire who started out selling jeans in the corridors of Dauphine University.

Berda bought and combined 15 adjacent plots to create a site large enough for the project.

Described as a town within a town, in addition to 1,000 apartments capable of housing 2,500 people, the complex will have 150,000 square metres of commercial space, a clinic and three hotels.

The expected completion date is sometime between 2021 and 2023.
