Land scarcity and diminishing natural resources are pushing real estate developers to rethink how to build and revitalise our cities.
When it comes to emblematic and historical buildings, there is an increasing desire to preserve the past of these places, bringing them into the current time, in a way that modernises and allows for the new ways of using buildings to be accentuated.
METAL 57, demonstrator of BNP Paribas Real Estate’s know-how is an example of how an emblematic building has been transformed into a structure that sits perfectly in its surroundings.
In this episode of Real Catch Up, Caroline Sainderichin, Deputy Managing Director, in charge of tertiary production, retraces the history of the building and the transformation from a Renault factory and an event space into a mixed-use office building. By preserving the original elements of the building and even recreating the emblematic sheds, METAL 57 preserves its history while metamorphing into an iconic place capable of generating rich experiences within the sustainable city.
