How can one invest in Bern real estate?
All of the above-mentioned factors underscore Bern’s status as an extremely attractive and resilient location for real estate investors. As such, savvy investors must keep an eye on this city and act promptly when attractive real estate opportunities arise. That's why we have spent a long time looking for promising real estate opportunities with significant value-add potential in Bern, and our diligence has paid off.
The property is located at the Schauplatzgasse 22, only a stone’s throw away from the Federal Palace and Bern’s train station (the second busiest in Switzerland), previously used as a restaurant and office space. Our mission here goes beyond a mere renovation: our vision encompasses a complete interior reconstruction and repurposing of the building, creating the opportunity to bring 8 different revenue streams under one roof and ensure maximum diversification.
The top floors of the building will be converted into high-class apartments operated by Le Bijou and cater to short-term, long-term, and special-event clients. Thanks to its extensive network with over 7’000 active members, Moonshot, our co-operator in this project, forecasts a minimum occupancy of 30%, which is a perfect complement to our apartments on the top floors.
On the underground, ground, and first floor, as well as on the courtyard terrace, we will create a high-end coworking space tailored to the needs of C-level executives. As a special and truly futuristic feature, this space will be complemented by a sophisticated automated kitchen on the ground floor, serving coworking tenants, apartment guests, and take-away customers alike. This modern interpretation of healthy fast food reduces staff costs while, at the same time, providing an all-day service to our guests.
The Schauplatzgasse 22 building
To extend the day with networking and socializing possibilities, after 6 p.m. the building transforms into a unique social club, a place where diverse minds can gather and great ideas can flourish. The social club will also regularly host events, where successful business leaders, icons, and personalities will share their wisdom through discussion groups and keynote speeches.
Today, it is becoming increasingly difficult to find attractive real estate investments in prime locations as demand seems to exceed supply by far. It is even more difficult to identify opportunities that show exceptional potential on top of that.
In this article, we have argued why we are convinced that the city of Bern is particularly attractive for real estate investments: the consistently high demand for rental properties, the city’s status as the political capital of Switzerland as well as an important innovation and business hub, and its appeal to tourists are key factors that are rarely found in other Swiss cities.
As such, it comes as no surprise that we have, again, chosen the city of Bern for one of our latest real estate projects, and we strongly advise all savvy investors to take a closer look at the numerous real estate opportunities the city of Bern offers.
