The prices are a bit skewed because of someone who left extremely high prices which are totally wrong.
Some prices average out but the price per square meter apartment is way off the minimum is more accurate.
So about 10000/m2 CHF = 10836 USD in the center.
and about 8000/m2 CHF = 8669 USD outside of center.
