The ex-Défense 2 building becomes Edenn
Between now and 2025, the demolition/reconstruction programme for the Immeuble Défense 2 includes a new programme with a surface area of approximately 30,500 m², known as the "Edenn Project". Located at the intersection of the Boulevards de La Défense, des Bouvets and Rue Célestin Hébert, the building will be inserted between Origine, the new Vinci Campus and the Axa headquarters in Nanterre.
Edenn will develop office space on the first floor, services dedicated to the building on the base level and shops open to the public on the ground floor. A food store and a restaurant will be part of the new development. It will include a ground floor with urban courtyards facing the existing boulevards and green spaces (patios, gardens, tree-lined walkways, green roofs).
A mixed programme mixing wood, concrete and metal
Like its neighbour Origine, Edenn will develop a mixed structure of wood, concrete and metal in order to benefit from "the best environmental labels and certifications (HQE Excellent level, BREEAM Excellent level, E+C-, LEED Platinum level, BBCA, OsmoZ, R2S)".
Numerous green spaces will adorn the different levels of Edenn.
Finally, a landscaped street of almost 1,000 m² will link the Boulevard de La Défense to the Boulevard des Bouvets between the Origine building and the new Edenn building. This space will be open to the public during the day.
To go further...
A programme that has already attracted one user. The real estate company has signed a lease in future state of completion (BEFA) with Schneider Electric for a surface area of approximately 16,000 square metres, i.e. 58% of the building. The world leader in digital energy solutions and automation for energy efficiency and sustainability will then leave its current headquarters in Rueil-Malmaison.
In Nanterre, the new headquarters will be able to be fully equipped with solutions that Schneider Electric develops and markets to meet the "highest level of energy, environmental, and digital performance.
