La Française buys office building in Puteaux, France

La Française Real Estate Managers (REM) has purchased Campus Cyber, an office building in Puteaux (92), located at 5/7 rue Bellini, in the heart of La Défense from Altarea Entreprise.

Close to the Esplanade de La Défense (Metro Line 1) and the Parvis de La Défense (RER A, Transilien L and U, Metro Line 1, Tramway T2), the tower boasts exceptional accessibility.

Delivered in 2021 and designed by Christian de Portzamparc, Campus Cyber is part of the State’s cybersecurity acceleration strategy.

The 26,500 m² building is made up of 5 basement levels and 13 superstructure floors, along with a rooftop and cutting-edge service areas: sky bar, showroom, catering concept. 

The building is highly efficient from an environmental standpoint and was built to the latest environmental standards. It has top-level labels and certifications: NF HQE Exceptional, Effinergie +, Wiredscore Platinium, BREEAM level “Excellent”, Well Silver and its energy performance will be equivalent to RT 2012 minus 40%. 

The Campus Cyber is fully leased for a period of 10 years to a single lessee, 45% of which is comprised of the French state and 55% of large private groups.

Philippe Depoux, Chairman of La Française Real Estate Managers said, “In the wake of the record inflows of the SCPI market recorded in the first half of 2022, La Française REM has signed its largest acquisition for collective real estate investment vehicles with the “Campus Cyber”. We are proud to be investing in a building that can truly be said to be iconic in many different ways: in terms of its architecture, its sustainability credentials – it is one of the very rare assets aligned with the Taxonomy – in terms of technology and services, as well as cybersecurity, which is in line with our group’s commitment to sustainability.” 

Adrien Blanc, Chairman of Altarea Entreprise noted, “We are very proud to have closed this deal with La Française Real Estate Managers, a move that consolidates Altarea Entreprise’s ability to carry out large-scale projects for leading players on the market. This building offers everything needed by the office of the future: an exceptional location, flexible and convertible spaces with services tailored to individual company needs, and an environmental performance that fulfils the highest-level international standards. We are also delighted that a French company will be taking over Campus Cyber.”
