  SwissTech Convention Center, Ecublens 
Owner CS REF Hospitality 
A conference center, retail space, and residential building for students were opened on the campus of the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology of Lausanne (EPFL) in 2014. With 3 000 seats, the conference center's state-of-the-art infrastructure is unique in Europe. The 2 200-seat auditorium can be transformed into a single, level space in a matter of minutes. A residential building comprising 516 rooms for students is being built on the same 29 825 m2 site, which the Swiss government has made available under a 99-year ground lease. The two real estate funds Credit Suisse Real Estate Fund Living Plus and Credit Suisse Real Estate Fund Hospitality are investing CHF 225 million in the construction of a pioneering conference center as well as a building with residential units for students.
