Quai Zurich (opens in 2021)
The Quai Zurich project is the redevelopment of our global headquarters at Mythenquai, Zurich, which we have proudly called home for over 115 years.
We have a long, rich history here, built on a great partnership with the city of Zurich. When finished, the development will be an important addition to this unique location and a landmark for the neighborhood. Bringing together heritage properties full of tradition and state-of-the-art construction, the project reflects the evolving nature of our company. Our mission is to provide Zurich employees, customers and visitors with a modern and inspiring environment that fosters creativity. “Quai Zurich” supports new ways of working and a people-centric culture with purpose-built spaces for collaboration, innovation and customer insights. It supports our mission to transform insurance while preserving our heritage and values. We are delighted that the development supports the city’s 2000-Watt-Society vision for an environmentally sustainable future and we’re targeting LEED Platinum certification.
