The foundation stone of the Silex1 operation has been laid in the heart of the Part-Dieu district, in the presence of Gérard Collomb, Senator and Mayor of Lyon and President of Grand Lyon, Thierry Philip, Mayor of the 3rd Lyon arrondissement, and Christophe Kullmann, Chief Executive Officer of Foncière des Régions.
This step marks the official launch of the iconic operation to renovate the main business district in Lyon.
A leading real estate player, Foncière des Régions took a major step forward towards the completion of the Silex1 project, which it is developing in the forefront of the Part-Dieu district. Launched in 2014, the operation consists of the demolition and reconstruction of a building comprising 10,000 m² of new offices, services and retail outlets, with delivery scheduled for end-2016.
An iconic project driving the transformation of the second-largest business hub in France, Silex1 embodies Foncière des Régions' ambition for the office and city of the future.
Thanks to its many qualities, Silex1 aims for dual certification: NF HQETM "Excellent" passport and BREEAM® "Excellent" rating, combined with the BBC-effinergie energy performance label.
In keeping with its partnership culture, Foncière des Régions is taking a collaborative approach to this operation through close collaboration with the Société Publique Locale Lyon Part-Dieu and the Metropolis of Lyon.
