Development, construction and energy

Gare CEVA de Champel, aménagement des arbres

With its 800 apartment blocks and public buildings, its streets and squares, the City of Geneva distinguishes itself by the size and diversity of its real estate portfolio. Every year, it invests in development, construction and maintenance projects, taking both the issue of energy-saving and the notion of heritage conservation into account.

These projects serve to create and renovate museums, schools, squares and roads. The City of Geneva must also implement large-scale development projects, for example creating the public areas around the CEVA station in les Eaux-Vives or the construction of new districts such as the Jonction eco-district, in collaboration with its partners. 

By incorporating both the issue of energy-saving and the notion of heritage conservation into the construction and renovation process, the City of Geneva serves as a driving force in the field of sustainable development for the conurbation as a whole. The municipality is also strongly committed to sustainable mobility and the maintenance of housing in the city.
