Back to the list


The Terra et Casa Foundation has built a residential building consisting of 93 housing units, with three separate entrances, on a plot of land it owns in the Petit-Saconnex neighbourhood, between the Avenue Trembley and the Chemin des Crêts.  The Foundation has sold 37 apartments in condominium ownership, 25 apartments under a state-controlled rental arrangement and 31 affordable-rent apartments are being rented.

The major advantage

One of the great advantages of this development is its excellent location close to where most of the international organisations are concentrated.

The project

In 2008, our Foundation acquired two plots of land totalling 5,417 m2 and, in the following year, organised an architectural competition to select the project best suited to the development envisaged for this site. At the end of 2012 finally the site was reclassified as a class-3 development area, and in October 2017 the building permit was granted. All new residents moved into their apartments between September and December 2020.
