Triangle de Gonesse, Paris
Area development between two airports
EPA Plaine de France is the State development company for the area north of Paris, and is in charge of developing the Triangle de Gonesse, 1,000 ha strategically located between Charles de Gaulle Airport (Europe’s second largest passenger airport) and Le Bourget (Europe’s largest business airport).
Triangle de Gonesse will offer a high quality business environment of circa 150 ha, which will accommodate more than 1 million m2 of airport-related offices, commercial activities and educational facilities. Furthermore, Triangle de Gonesse will host EuropaCity, Europe’s largest leisure and shopping centre, a project of Immochan, the real estate arm of Auchan.
EuropaCity will be an investment of more than € 1.8 billion with more than 600,000 m2, and eventually more than 30 million visitors per year. These developments will lead to a vibrant new city-like green working environment with a multimodal transport hub, sustainability, excellent accessibility by public transportation and creating maximum value for the larger airport corridor between both airports.
The consortium consists of Royal HaskoningDHV – Güller Güller – EBP – Paul van Beek. We performed in-depth international market analyses for a wide range of business functions, the marketing messages, real estate programming, and international benchmarking of best practices at leading airports with respect to state of the art business park developments. Furthermore, we provided specific services in the field of sustainability and water management.
