Eiffage wins a concession contract for eco-district in Châtenay-Malabry Parc-Centrale development area
The concession for the development of the 20-hectare historic site of Ecole Centrale Paris and a future mixed eco-district was signed on February 22. This followed the town of Châtenay-Malabry’s decision, announced earlier in February, to award this project to Eiffage Aménagement after a developer consultation process started in July last year.
This operation will be carried out under the auspices of a new type of French special-purpose public-private partnership (SEMOP). Eiffage Aménagement will be a majority shareholder alongside the town of Châtenay-Malabry.
The project will create a park-city combining optimal urban, architectural and landscaping qualities on an outstanding site adjacent to Parc de Sceaux, in the Grand Paris area.
Eiffage Aménagement will design and build an eco-district with a total floor area of 213,000 sq. m:
• providing a balanced response to urban, social, economic and environmental needs,
• with its own specific character while connecting the existing town with its history,
• including useful and attractive features that will encourage people to go there.
The project is based on a rich social and functional mix combining all the components required to create a pleasant, lively district.
• It will feature a wide range of accommodation with more than 2,000 homes.
• A new offering of innovative, connected offices catering for new working modes is to be developed at the gateway to the district and will boost the services sector and jobs in Châtenay-Malabry.
• It also includes 15,000 sq. m of shops and various public amenities (such as a gymnasium, school building, nursery and junior high school).
Services and innovations will be a key area of focus in line with sustainable city concepts Eiffage has been developing for a number of years.
