Zug, 10 June 2022

Zug Estates AG has signed a ten-year rental contract with Utopia Music AG for space totalling 4,500 m2. Currently based in Zug, the company will start renting the entire Suurstoffi 6 building on the Suurstoffi site in Risch Rotkreuz in July 2022. This latest agreement will amount to a significant reduction in the vacancy rate for Zug Estates. 

Alain Baumgartner, Head of Portfolio Management at Zug Estates AG, is delighted to be welcoming the newest addition to Suurstoffi: “Utopia Music AG is one of the world’s leading music fintech companies and their innovative spirit tells me they will fit in perfectly with the other tenants at the site.” 

Markku Mäkeläinen, CEO Utopia Music, added: “Utopia is on a mission to create a better world for the music industry and a key part of this journey is awareness of our environmental impact. Being one of the most environmentally friendly buildings in Switzerland, Suurstoffi 6 is aligned with our company values and provides our people with a comfortable and ambient space to collaborate and innovate.”

Suurstoffi 6 is a wooden hybrid building with seven floors. With construction work having finished back in 2020, it’s now one of three buildings on construction site 1, which is also home to the Zug Rotkreuz campus of Lucerne University of Applied Sciences and Arts. The modern wooden construction meets the most stringent of sustainability requirements. Having been designed to keep the use of resources to a minimum, the building can be operated with almost zero carbon emissions being generated thanks to the site’s own energy system.

The Suurstoffi site in Risch Rotkreuz is an integrated, traffic-free neighbourhood with a combination of living, working and recreational facilities. It accommodates 1,400 residents and almost 2,000 students and provides space for over 2,500 jobs.
