Bouygues Bâtiment Ile-de-France and Bouygues Energies & Services, two subsidiaries of Bouygues Construction, are building the $289-million Issy Coeur de Ville under development in Issy-les-Moulineaux, near Paris. Envisioned as an eco-neighborhood, the 1,076,391-sq-ft project aims to provide residents an “environmentally responsible lifestyle.” The development is a connected block, located in the heart of Issy-les-Moulineaux. It will focus on pedestrian traffic and will be heavily landscaped. Designed by architect Valode & Pistre, the mixed-used development will consist of five residential buildings, including a retirement home, three office buildings and a range of civic amenities that include a school complex, a day-care center and a community hall. The development will also feature 182,986 sq ft of retail, restaurants and a seven-screen multiplex cinema.

The project will seek the Eco-neighborhood level 1 label, as well as NF-Habitat HQE certifications for the housing units. The office buildings and shops aim to achieve BEPOS, NF HQE Bâtiment Tertiaire and BREEAM labels. Based on its mission to re-establish nature in the city, it will also seek the BiodiverCity label and WELL Community certification.
