UXCO Group has just begun the construction of the future ECLA premium XXL coliving residence in Archamps - Greater Geneva, which is scheduled for the summer of 2025.
This new-generation co-living residence takes place in a former office and retail building. Once the renovation completed, the property will feature 800 beds and 3,000m2 of common areas for students and local young professionals.
The location of the future residence is part of the Archamps business park launched in 1989 by the mixed development syndicate managing ArchParc (SMAG), a key partner making possible this new ECLA project.
Led by OCEANIS Promotion, designer and developer of UXCO Group’s ECLA concept, and the architectural agency Patriarche, this residence aims to to offer future residents the lifestyle guaranteed by the ECLA concept while minimizing the building’s transformation environmental and energy footprint.
The sustainable aspect is indeed at the heart of this concept, with the use of materials and construction methods to optimize the site’s energy performance, focusing on improving the existing facilities and minimizing waste.
This latest ECLA residence will thus become the first residential building to achieve a “Very Good” rating by BREEAM, an internationally recognized standard for assessing the environmental performance of buildings.
Our OCEANIS Promotion teams are ready to take up the challenge of the next 22 months of building works through our unique expertise in transforming tertiary buildings into housing. The project we are launching today in Archamps – greater Geneva, as well as our ECLA Paris Noisy-le-Grand residence that opened last year, are proof that transformation projects like this can be successful. We can rethink the way we develop the French real-estate landscape to reflect changing lifestyles while achieving our CSR commitments and ambitions.
