A first step in the renovation of the Michelet district

In 2016, Eurosic launched a vast restructuring operation of its office building located in the Michelet district of La Défense. The work increased the office space from 30,000 to 37,000 sq.m., raised the building, and decoupled it from the two adjoining volumes. After restructuring, the Carré Michelet building, which is not a high-rise building, offers approximately 37,000 square meters of workspace with services (restaurant, business center, fitness center, etc.), with 2,700 square meters of expanded floor space around a courtyard. Three additional levels have been created on the upper level: the 9th floor has been raised and a mezzanine created to form a large, totally panoramic attic for new spaces. It develops 1,400 square meters of outdoor space with terraces, indoor garden and balconies. It offers an unprecedented quality of life with 90% of its space on the first day.

A large part has also been allocated to the planting of this complex.

This first operation, in the heart of the Michelet district, breathes new life into this sector of the business hub, which until now has been somewhat isolated, although it has been animated by shops and restaurants at the foot of the buildings (DS CAFE). It will allow Paris La Défense to create pedestrian links between the Puteaux train station and the "Esplanade de La Défense" metro station.
