West Gate, Baar (Switzerland)
In 2000 the Mutschler Group acquired a half-finished building in the Swiss canton Zug, located directly at the autobahn exit Baar. The building had a negative past: failed investments and constantly changing tenants. Consequently, it required overall rehabilitation and new long-term tenants.
The Mutschler Group drew up a concept for reconstruction and renovation with a new floor plan. The concept included total renovation of the façade and a new tenant structure. By the time reconstruction was completed after seven months, almost 70% of the commercial space had already been leased out to companies including BMW, a traditional industrial company from Zug, and the French fashion store chain LaHalle. The West Gate complex changed from being a crisis object to becoming a profitable commercial property with a long-term tenant structure.
