An operation piloted by the company Alderan, imagined by thearchitect Maud Coubet and made concrete on the ground by Fayat building. It is a question, while respecting the architectural identity of this emblematic building built in the 70s, of transforming its uses, while opening it up more to the surrounding city.
This particularly complex site, in an urban environment, which Batiactu was able to visit, is divided into three sub-operations: the creation of an agricultural greenhouse on the roof, the renovation of the ten levels of the tower and the transformation of the five basement levels (three of them will remain car parks ).
