Gecina: 10,585 sq.m let in the Horizons building to Sodexo in France
PARIS -- October 24, 2012
Gecina (Paris:GFC) has let 10,585 sq.m in the Horizons building in Boulogne
Billancourt to the Sodexo group, the global market leader for quality of life
services, which will be basing several of its French operational entities out
of this site. Sodexo will occupy three floors in this building's lower section
under a nine-year closed lease from July 1, 2013.
Following this transaction, Gecina will have let 77% of this asset.
The Horizons “non-tower” was designed by Ateliers Jean Nouvel and its
construction was completed in June 2011. This asset, which is high
environmental quality (HQE) and very high energy efficiency (THPE) certified
for its build, offers 34,393 sq.m of office space, with 15,644 sq.m let to
Laboratoire Roche in 2011. Today, there are only 7,508 sq.m left to let.
The Horizons building is part of Gecina’s extensive urban development project
in Boulogne Billancourt, reflected in the construction of four flagship
buildings between 2008 and 2011: L’Angle, Khapa, Anthos and Horizons, all
designed by leading architects (Jean-Paul Viguier, Elisabeth Naud and Luc
Poux, Foster & Partners, Ateliers 234, Ateliers Jean Nouvel) and high
environmental quality certified for their construction (HQE). This approach,
rolled out in line with Gecina’s Made for People project, has contributed
towards the revival of the Ile Seguin-Rives de Seine district, offering
tenants emblematic buildings with optimum accessibility.
