In Euralille, Nacarat signs an agreement with the Caisse d'Epargne Hauts de France to sell the ShAKe property programme
In late December, Nacarat and the Caisse d'Epargne Hauts de France signed an agreement for the sale before completion of the modernistic real estate building programme known as the ShAKe. With a surface area of over 30,000 sq. m., it is the largest mixed-use programme currently under development in the Euralille quarter of central Lille. Furthermore, it reinvents the supply of real estate in France’s third-largest business district, thereby enhancing the international renown of the Lille metropolitan area. The works will be carried out by the Rabot Dutilleul Construction and Louis de Waele companies, beginning in early 2019, for delivery in the second quarter of 2021.
The ShAKe programme proposes a uniquely innovative office property offering within the Lille metropolis. Its design results from in-depth thinking about contemporary trends in workspace management, combining high quality of use, economic functionality and the well-being of occupants. The ShAKe project seeks to qualify for excellent BREEAM environmental certification and for top energy-efficiency labelling (2017 BBC Effinergie level E2C1 label) by achieving high environmental and energy efficiency performance levels. Thus, it will notably feature natural lighting and ventilation, photovoltaic panels and be connected to the district heating network. In addition, biodiversity will be at the heart of the project’s landscaping.
The building will comprise over 22,000 sq. m. of office space (including 13,400 sq. m. dedicated to the future head office of Hauts de France savings bank); 3,600 sq. m. of co-working space; a 2,000 sq. m. incubator for start-ups and 300 sq. m. of retail space. It will be a real living-space with features that will help strike a balance between the multiple activities of each user, namely: a 350-seat auditorium, concierge services, a fitness centre, an aparthotel, a day nursery, a shared company restaurant and a Bread&Co café. The entire development will be structured around a 900 sq. m. village square at the epicentre of the project, set to become a forum for exchanges and sharing experiences. The building will also stand out because of its “5th façade”, i.e. some 4,000 sq. m. of terraces featuring, in particular, a viewing platform open to the public, a panoramic rooftop restaurant and a vegetable garden. The terraces will feature a spiral walkway, thus affording users opportunities to enjoy unprecedented views of the surrounding city.
