Offices in The Circle are proving very popular: three buildings are fully let
Much of the office space at The Circle has already been let. The building at the south square, which comprises around 25,000 m2 of office space, is now fully occupied, as an existing tenant recently decided to expand.
The global biopharmaceutical company MSD (Merck Sharp & Dohme AG) already decided at the end of last year to occupy 4,300 m2 at The Circle at Zurich Airport as it is expanding its business in Switzerland. The community-based approach and synergies with other tenants were key factors in the decision to move to Zurich. Another reason behind the decision in favour of The Circle was to offer employees, clients and partners a modern, future-oriented work environment at Switzerland’s best-connected location. Thanks to the positive feedback and high demand from employees, MSD decided to expand its premises by 2,800 m2.
The available office space of around 25,000 m2 in the building at the south square is thus fully let. In the past few months, other existing tenants besides MSD, including Inventx and Raiffeisen, have decided to expand their premises at The Circle.
A large part of the office space has therefore been let. Around 16,000 m2 of office space is still available, including both small and large areas at a central location. The innovative concept and variety of uses at The Circle anticipates the changes in the world of work and consumer habits. For instance, the needs of employees are decisive in designing offices. Employees today want flexibility – in terms of working hours, workplaces and work-life balance. They expect arrangements that accommodate free time and family management as well as optimum accessibility. Companies can find the perfect campus for all their needs at The Circle.
The joint ownership company The Circle, comprising Flughafen Zürich AG (51%) and Swiss Life AG (49%) wishes to thank its marketing partners SPG Intercity Zurich AG and CBRE Switzerland for their support.
About The Circle
The Circle will become a central attraction that strengthens Zurich Airport. Once it opens, it will be possible to hold conferences for up to 2,500 guests directly at Switzerland’s largest national airport. Two Hyatt Group hotels, various brand worlds, an outpatient healthcare centre run by the University Hospital of Zurich, attractive office space, and arts, culture, restaurants and education facilities will round out the wide range at Zurich Airport. The Circle will thus enrich the whole region, both culturally and economically. The project is being built by a joint ownership company, with Flughafen Zürich AG and Swiss Life AG holding stakes of 51% and 49% respectively.
