The Lugano Cassarate business centre is housed in a red brick building created by the famous architect Mario Botta and located on Via Maggio, a tree-lined street 200 metres from the lake. In the city centre, in the heart of the business district, it enjoys a prestigious address famous for both the originality of the building and its architect. Lugano, the cultural and economic centre of the Italian-speaking part of the country, is also the third largest financial centre of Switzerland.
The district's occupants include one of Europe's leading real estate and business tax consultants, as well as companies active in various sectors such as construction, services, property management, insurance and fashion. The centre is close to Università della Svizzera Italiana, an institution with an international reputation, and has good public transport links (bus no. 2 to the central station) or private transport. The centre is 10 minutes from the E35 motorway linking Milan to Switzerland and it has a private car park. Shops, banks and restaurants in the vicinity make this site a pleasant and stimulating place.
