Strasbourg' real-estate projects stand out on the international scene!
Among the huge diversity of real-estate developments in cities the world over, Strasbourg’s projects speak for themselves.
MIPIM, the international real estate market for professionals, is celebrating its 30th anniversary. Strasbourg will be featuring strongly, with a number of standout ventures
What is MIPIM ?
- An international trade fair held every year in Cannes
- Over 27,000 visitors each year
- Attended by the leading lights in all sectors of the property market (offices, housing, retail outlets, health, sport, logistics and industry)
- Unrivalled access to the major development projects and to international capital sources (Europe and also China, the Emirates, Russia, Canada and many others).
Strasbourg is proud to present its 3 major ongoing real estate developments to this global audience.
- The new Strasbourg exhibition centre, which will be completed in 2021, highlights the importance of the growth in eco-construction within the city and its surroundings. The city is looking to showcase the very international basis of this major new urban development, which underpins Strasbourg’s determination to bring nature back into the urban infrastructure. The city has teamed up with internationally-renowned prize-winning Japanese architects, Kengo Kuma, to bring the project to life.
The aim? Making wood an inherent part of the urban environment. The design features a double building with an adjoining wood peristyle, constructed to blend in harmoniously with the Concert and Conference Centre, in a location right next to the European institutions and the new Archipel business district.
- Archipel, THE international business district of Strasbourg! Located next door to the European institutions, Archipel is a potent driver for development. One of the new district’s major USPs is its combined role as a centre for both business and international services.
What’s there? 105,000 m² of office space, including 5,000 m² of premium space, 250 housing units, shops and local facilities, 10,000 m² of hotel facilities and 300 parking spaces. A pedigree development ideal for driving new opportunities in and around Strasbourg.
- The COOP is one of these outstanding projects currently underway in Strasbourg. The city is also expanding eastwards towards Germany, driven by the Deux Rives urban development project. The project is being constructed on former military grounds, which previously formed a buffer zone between France and Germany and at over 11 ha, it is one of the biggest developments in France.
The standout feature? A development with a strong citizen and participatory input, based on brownfield rehabilitation driven by the creative, digital and cross-border economy. It’s a highly effective way of connecting the city’s districts and inhabitants to its strategic location.
These ongoing developments represent a dynamic impulse for the city, creating new jobs through unique growth opportunities. A wealth of new possibilities is opening up for securing the economic and social future of the citizens of Strasbourg.
