Construction of the buildings making up the Central Malley SBB Real Estate project in the west of the Lausanne agglomeration is to start shortly. Therefore, the office and retail spaces in the buildings of this new neighbourhood have now been made available for rent.
The Central Malley project – the first stage in the redevelopment of the brownfield site of Malley – is located in the municipalities of Prilly and Renens close to Malley ice rink and Malley Lumières shopping centre. To the south of the new Prilly-Malley suburban train station, Central Malley connects the m1 metro line, the future t1 tram line and the future improved bus lines. A high-performance public transport network that fosters soft mobility. Not simply a gateway to western Lausanne, Central Malley will come to be a new destination in its own right.
Rental of the office and retail space. The project website central-malley.ch provides full information on this SBB Real Estate Division project, in particular the rental of office and retail space. The five buildings making up the future neighbourhood will provide 3,800m2 for retail and 23,700m2 for offices. This space will be available from 2024, but is already on the market. The homes will be rented out at a later date.
Timeline. Two architectural calls for tender for the project were made in 2018, one of which was won by the studio Aeby Perneger & Associés SA in Carouge and one by Pont 12 Architectes SA in Lausanne. The work is to start in autumn 2021 and be concluded in spring 2024. Investment in the project totals around 250 million francs.
