Two exemplary buildings in terms of sustainable development
The first building, designed primarily for families, will contain suspended gardens and terraces, in addition to urban agriculture spaces on the roofs. It will also be home to local food businesses and a childcare centre on the ground floor. The second building, built on top of the maintenance warehouses following the RATP's superposition and mixed development principles, will contain housing units with outdoor spaces of around 30% of their surface area.
The omnipresence of greenery in the two buildings and the outdoor areas is in line with the Objectif 100 hectares (100 hectare goal) charter of the City of Paris(1) signed by the RATP. The project, which is aiming for the BiodiverCity certification label, is fully in line with the Governmental Energie-Carbone (Carbon Energy) certification label as a pilot project.
Inaugural issue of a Green Bond
The funds will finance or refinance assets and projects of the Foncière Tertiaire (offices and business parks) respecting the demanding and transparent eligibility criteria regarding sustainable development and social responsibility.
