Bouygues to build €258m eco-neighbourhood near Paris

French contractor Bouygues has won a €258m deal to build an eco-neighbourhood in Issy-les-Moulineaux, southwest of Paris.

Two of its subsidiaries, Bouygues Energies and Bouygues Services, will work on the 100,000 sq m Issy CÅ“ur de Ville, which aims to "reshape urban living" according to a press statement from the company.

Bouygues is working for French developer Altarea Cogedim, and alongside French architect Valode & Pistre, on the development, which will include five residential and three office buildings.

The neighbourhood will contain a retirement home, a school complex, a day-care centre, a community hall, 17,000 sq m of shops, restaurants and a seven-screen cinema.

The project is designed to meet the criteria for "Eco-neighbourhood level 1" and the BREEAM certification for office buildings and shops.

Alain Taravella, Altarea Cogedim founder, said: "Our ambition was to develop a genuine urban project that met the social challenges and reflects the current transitions the town of Issy-les-Moulineaux and its residents are experiencing."
