In the historic city centre of Bordeaux, a UNESCO heritage site, Redevco plans to create a haven of life.
This large-scale urban project, covering 19,000 sq. m., involves transforming an abandoned industrial site into a pleasant pedestrian district where life is organised around retail, leisure and housing. Located at the junction of rue Sainte Catherine and rue Porte Dijeaux, the buildings were previously owned by the newspaper Sud Ouest, which had its offices and print works there.
The 17,000 sq. m. open-air commercial development will house numerous retail brands spread over various levels. The plan is to bring together around ten shops with floor space between 400 and 1,500 sq. m., some twenty smaller shops and between 1,500 and 2,000 sq. m. of restaurants.
Above the shops it is planned to build apartments covering a total of 10,000 sq. m. Of this, 30% will be reserved for social housing, which will be built and owned by Domofrance on the site of the old C&A on rue de la Porte Dijeaux. The rest will be high-end apartments built by Nexity group.
