French utility ENGIE is teaming up with real estate developer Nexity to develop a sustainable “eco-district” in Paris.

They have joined forces to transform a nine hectares plot of industrial land at La Garenne-Colombes in the Hauts-de-Seine department, showcasing the energy and environmental transition.

The bespoke ENGIE campus covering more than 120,000m² will be built in addition to housing, offices, shops and a hotel and will be energy efficient and reduce emissions.

Pierre Deheunynck, ENGIE Executive Vice President said: “This project will be the showcase of the ENGIE Group’s strategy, part of an environmental approach contributing both to economic and social progress that is harmonious and sustainable. Located in a wooded urban site near Paris, this future eco-campus will illustrate the expertise of ENGIE and its teams in building the smart city of tomorrow.”

The project is expected to be completed by 2022-2023.
