Some 600 jobs are to be based on the new site in the immediate vicinity of the railway station in Renens, with a rentable area of 12,000 m2. Occupancy is planned for late 2008. Fully indexed 10-year leases with an option of a further 10-year extension have been concluded with the two companies mentioned, which are renting around 75% of the available area. There is considerable interest in the remaining free areas, and we therefore expect that the property will be fully let upon completion.
