In Montpellier, Eiffage Immobilier signs the VEFA of a wooden office complex with Groupama Gan REIM

Groupama Gan REIM, on behalf of the OPCI Groupama Gan Pierre 1, is acquiring from Eiffage Immobilier, on a pre-purchase basis, a 3,900 sqm two-storey office complex located in Montpellier (34), in the heart of the Parc Eureka, which is the major tertiary centre of the city.

The asset will be delivered in October 2023 and will be certified "BREEAM Very Good". Comprising a mix of 2,100 cubic meters of concrete with a reduced carbon footprint and 1,600 sqm of wood-frame facades, the building is also aiming for the E2C1 label, which can be upgraded to E3C1 thanks to the possibility of installing photovoltaic panels.

This €12.47 million investment (including fees) reflects the commitment and desire of the OPCI Groupama Gan Pierre 1 to position itself in new buildings that are part of a virtuous environmental approach.

The design of the building, composed of a shell of metal scales with multiple perforations, was imagined by the architectural firm 2A Design, in order to adapt to its environment and to respond to the problem of sunlight.

The complex will include tailor-made and evolving spaces with flexible use possibilities.

The user-friendliness and layout of the spaces have been particularly studied in order to guarantee the quality of life at work for the future occupants. The building will include a 150 sqm green patio, 4 loggias, terraces, balconies and gardens accessible to office users. 

Matthieu Reynier, Territorial Director of Eiffage Immobilier, Occitanie region, states:
"As both the developer and builder of this operation, Eiffage Immobilier has chosen to orient its project towards a global approach to sustainable urban development, which takes into account the environmental, economic and sociological aspects of the city. Green and resilient, made of wood and concrete with a reduced carbon footprint, the building reflects the know-how and ambitions of Eiffage Construction's cross-disciplinary and collaborative innovation policy.

Alexandre Hamon, Investment Director of Groupama Gan REIM, said:
"This investment is particularly structuring for the OPCI Groupama Gan Pierre 1 as it allows us to position ourselves in the Montpellier market and to acquire an asset with top quality technical fundamentals. Groupama Gan REIM is once again demonstrating its ability to identify and conclude benchmark transactions that enable the FIAs under management to be part of a long-term value creation strategy based on assets that meet the highest standards of comfort, flexibility and compliance with environmental standards.

For this transaction, the buyer was advised by the notary's office of acte 2 (Me Baffoy), Archers (Me Moutet) for the legal aspects, the company Setim for the technical aspects and CBRE for the acquisition advice. The seller was advised by the Lexnot notary office.

Congratulations to the teams and thanks to our partners!
