A true technical feat, Latitude is the restructuring of an old building from the 1970s (Berkeley Building) and a parking lot that was located below Patrick-Devedjian Boulevard. Latitude was developed by Générale Continentale Investissements (GCI) in partnership with Benson Elliot Capital Management (BECM). Latitude was designed to provide an inclusive work environment through the spatial-architectural considerations of state-of-the-art facilities and services. With a bold design by Studios Architecture, the building is located just a stone's throw from the CNIT and on the banks of Patrick-Devedjian Boulevard, and enjoys high visibility. Latitude is distinguished by specific architectural elements with a curved writing and a wave of ribbons that envelops the building.
The design of the complex is based on the trilogy "one address - one idea - one community". In addition to high-performance offices, Latitude offers an unprecedented range of services throughout the day, with reversible spaces that bring a sense of urbanity to the building. The animated base contributes to the emulation of its users, so that the work destination, whatever the time of day, becomes a pleasure. In the extension of its lobby, its services pole has been imagined as an interior street "à la Parisienne" with a brasserie, a pizzeria, a grocery store, a coffee bar... which can evolve into work spaces, multipurpose rooms and reception areas. Its purpose is to create a friendly and attractive living space within the building. Ideally located in an environment redeveloped by Paris La Défense and benefiting from easy access (elevators, new stairs...) to the multimodal hub "Coeur Transport". Latitude is home to the management of Sopra Steria's France division as well as several operational and functional entities located in the Paris region, bringing together nearly 2,000 employees on this site.
Latitude is :
- 22,141 m² of office space spread over 8 floors ;
- 267 parking spaces for cars, 33 motorized bicycles and 55 bicycle spaces;
- spacious, efficient and bright office space with an average floor area of 2,200 m²;
- a diversified offer of restaurants and services on the first floor;
- environmental certifications and labels: HQE 'Exceptional', BREEAM 'Excellent', Effinergie+, ready for Well Core and Shell label, Wiredscore level 'Platinum';
- excellent visibility from the ring road and the CNIT. Less than 5 minutes walk from La Défense public transport (RER A, Métro 1), easily accessible by elevators, escalators and newly built staircases.
