A new hotel complex for Bürgenstock Hotels overlooking Lake Lucerne is expected to be finished in 2011.  The main investors, a Qatari group, have requested that money made off alcohol be used for preventing alcoholism.

 

 

La Barwa Real Estate Company (Quatar) follows Islamic law, and have agreed to a compromise in which the profits from alcohol sales will go to an anti-alcoholism group, says Pierre Buyssens of Bürgenstock Hotels.

The negotiations between the real estate company, Rosebud Hotels Holding and the developers were not easy.  A casino, for example, was out of the question.

Banning any problems work is expected to start in mid-2009.  The hotel is expected to offer 800 jobs.
