The Bel-Air Tower, built by Alphonse Laverrière and completed in 1932, is one of the first skyscrapers in Switzerland.  The building and its 15-storey tower were planned from the design stage to accommodate offices, housing (equipped with the most modern technologies of the time such as electricity, refrigerators, showers and telephone), a restaurant and an auditorium, the Salle Métropole.
