Unibail-Rodamco partners with  Socri to  develop Polygone  Riveria, the  first 
open air shopping centre in France that brings together art and shopping

For the first time in France, a green  and open air centre will offer to  take 
visitors on a real journey around art, shopping and leisure. Polygone  Riveria 
will open  to  the public  in  the fall  of  2015. With  a  construction  cost 
estimated at  €350  Mn,  the  project  will create  1,500  jobs  and  have  an 
environmental performance on par with the international standards of BREEAM.

The design of Polygone Riviera was entrusted to a team of renowned architects,
under the  direction of  José  Ignacio Galán  Martinez,  the architect  of  La 
Maquinista in Barcelona. The  landscape artist Jean  Mus drew his  inspiration 
from the  "French  Riviera', a  Mediterranean  spirit and  ambiance  that  has 
contributed to the success of this region  for over a century. Sacha Sosno,  a 
famous visual artist from the region will select and display original art from
renowned artists in order  to give visitors a  unique experience with  fashion 
and contemporary art.

Polygone Riveria is a mall offering visitors for the first time a place for  a 
scenic stroll by the river, surrounded by  works of art, or a place to  lounge 
around the many different fashion, beauty and home decoration brands, as  well 
as shops revolving around culture. The mall will also include a movie  theatre 
with ten screens  and a casino.  Polygone Riveria represents  a collection  of 
brands and a concentration of possibilities, never seen in the region before.

30 years after Nicetoile, Unibail-Rodamco  again partners with Socri to  build 
the largest shopping centre in the South  of France. With 75,000 m² of  retail 
space, restaurants, art and culture,  Polygone Riveria will allow visitors  to 
shop for all their needs in one place.

Polygone Riveria is organised around four districts:

  oThe ART DE VIVRE district: a haven for interior design and nature ;
  oThe LIFESTYLE district: the largest retail and entertainment offer in the
    South of France ;
  oThe PREMIUM district: a collection of iconic brands and fashion ;
  oThe LUXURY district: offering an array of prestigious brands.

Polygone Riveria is located in a region with 1.1 million inhabitants, of which
28% of households have  above average wealth. The  region attracts 14  million 
tourists per annum, including 20%  from business tourism. The shopping  centre 
targets a local and international demand: a place that is easy to access, in a
scenic environment, where the mix of premium brands includes the best of those
found in international capital cities.

Polygone Riveria will also have  the recognition of Unibail-Rodamco's  highest 
quality standards: the 4 Star Label,  which welcomes visitors with a range  of 
innovative services that match the  standards of a luxury hotel.  Furthermore, 
The Dining Experience will also be implemented, a unique concept that offers a
collection of the best restaurateurs and new international food brands.

Polygone Riviera is part of the 'New Art of Shopping' revolution in the French
