"James" is an innovative building complex in Zurich-Albisrieden developed by the UBS (CH) Property Fund - Swiss Mixed «Sima» real estate fund, comprising three distinctive buildings (a long building with 107 apartments, a corner building with 100 apartments and a high-rise with 76 apartments) with usable space of some 23,000 m2. The unique aspect of the development lies in the fact that it not only offers comfortable apartments and offices at attractive rental prices, but also features modern communication and concierge services.
Every apartment is equipped with a tablet PC, providing "James" residents with an online connection to one another and to the concierge. The concierge team undertakes a range of services, including taking delivery of flowers, online shopping, post or parcels, car washing, bringing clothes to the dry cleaners, bookings for restaurants, cinemas, etc, and even watering plants and airing apartments during vacation absences - everything imaginable. Hence, "James" offers residents the much-desired additional benefit of convenience and time savings in one.
The long building and high-rise will be ready for occupancy in the course of this year. Up to now, more than 97% of the apartments in these buildings have been leased. Completion of the corner building is planned for 2009, and leasing of the units in the corner building will already start following the 2007 summer vacation.
