Baker McKenzie advised PSP Swiss Property ("PSP") on its acquisition of a top tier property in Geneva in a share deal.

PSP has acquired the commercial property at 3-5 Place de la Synagogue in a prime downtown location in Geneva for CHF 64 million (asset purchase price) by means of a share deal. This prestigious property has approximately 2,700 m2 of usable space, which is mainly used for offices. The property is fully let in the medium to long term, with the main tenant being the IWG-brand "Signature", a coworking operator.

This strategic transaction serves to support the ongoing portfolio optimization of PSP.
