After rehabilitating the site, a former Shell service station, Brownfields sold the property at 340, avenue Georges Clémenceau in Nanterre, France, to Eiffage so that the site could be redeveloped as residential space.

Brownfields purchased property at 340, avenue Georges Clémenceau in Nanterre, France, which had been operated by the Société des Pétroles SHELL (SHELL) as a service station until 2010. Located in a densely-populated urban area with mainly residential and commercial building space, the property is in a key location for new housing developments.

Brownfields performed site cleanup – including excavation work necessary for an underground parking space – and sold the property to the real estate developer Eiffage, who implemented a project with 49 housing units and 4 townhouses (40% of which are social housing), with a total floor space of 3,300 square meters.

By rehabilitating this land and making it available for collective and individual housing, Brownfields has proven its expertise in redeveloping former service stations and demonstrated the success of its integrated concept of cleanup and development, allowing urban infills to be replaced by new constructions, especially for residential use. As specialists in the redevelopment of brownfield sites, Brownfields contributes to the rehabilitation of former industrial sites and to the creation of new housing.

The project’s key points are :

  • 1. The integrated project concept of development and cleanup, including purchasing the site and taking over rehabilitation obligations
  • 2. An increase in buildable land inside the city
  • 3. The development of new value-added activities
