Built at the end of the 1970s, the Beaugrenelle Shopping Centre was officially reopened in October 2013 after huge renovation work. With a surface area of 60,000 m2, Beaugrenelle houses cinemas, restaurants, small and medium-sized retailers, boutiques and street-level shops, the result of a considered approach to urban design, commercial architecture and the environment.
The inside of the center is very spacious and this impression of spaciousness is stressed by the fact that the majority of the escalators are on the sides leaving the central area open. The digitalization starts fr om the entrance wh ere guests are welcomed by an interactive map of the building and giant screens. Visit the center is a very pleasant experience and there are many relaxation areas with free WIFI. Although we like the environment, warmer design and architecture elements would improve the “soul” of Beaugrenelle.

Features mall architecture
The expansion and restructuring of Beaugrenelle Shopping Centre make it representative of a new generation of shopping and leisure complexes located in city centres. The unique silk-screened glass used on the façade and the simplicity and fluidity of the structures give the complex an unmistakeable identity. Beyond the shops located at street level, the outlets are accessed via two atriums, spanning two city blocks. Located on the Left Bank beside the Pont de Grenelle, the two atriums form a symbolic gateway to the 15th arrondissement, and make a significant contribution to Paris’s urban design.
Aerated and bright, Beaugrenelle seduces so much by its gigantic size and its streamlined architecture. Tourists and Parisian will undoubtedly go to the top floor of the center to try out the panoramic bar of 1000 square metters which offers an incredible view of the capital.
Designed as a department store, it boasts six floors, with monumental windows, an atrium and amazing footbridges.
