Société de la Tour Eiffel sells an asset located in Corbeil-Essonnes

– Société de la Tour Eiffel announces the sale of an office property complex in Corbeil-Essonnes to Foncière de Transformation Immobilière

Société de la Tour Eiffel announces the sale of a vacant office property complex of almost 7,000 m² located in Corbeil-Essonnes, in the Greater Paris region, to Foncière de Transformation Immobilière, subsidiary of Action Logement, a leader in social and intermediate housing in France. Meanwhile, the FTI will sign a construction lease agreement with Seqens, which will be the direct contractor on the project to convert this office building into a social student and intermediate housing residence.

Société de la Tour Eiffel and Foncière de Transformation Immobilière have worked in close collaboration with the city of Corbeil-Essonnes to develop plans to give the empty property a second life.

As a result, the existing site will undergo major renovation works in the coming months to be transformed into a 108-room social student residence and 23 intermediate rental units under the direct contracting authority of the lessor.

“With this transaction, Société de la Tour Eiffel takes the next step forward in its asset disposal plan initiated in 2019, refocusing its business on Grand Paris and high-potential regional cities,” said Bruno Meyer, Deputy Chief Executive Officer of Société de la Tour Eiffel.

Alexandre Chirier, Chairman of Foncière de Transformation Immobilière, stated: “This new programme to convert empty offices into housing is in line with the headline strategy launched by Foncière de Transformation Immobilière a little over a year ago. With its values and engineering, FTI has united energies to make this nice project a reality in the heart of Corbeil-Essonnes.”
