We concentrate on the best assets in the world’s most dynamic cities. Our shopping centres are true lifestyle destinations, hosted in the most desirable catchment areas. We operate the retail in airport retail facilities in the US. We develop state of the art office buildings with exceptional work environments. We add prime residential programmes to our best assets. We own and operate major convention & exhibition venues in the Paris region. We believe physical retail has a bright future.

We reinvent the retail experience through outstanding services, bold digital marketing, unique designs, premium retailers, and inspiring events. Our shopping centres are places where visitors can enjoy a constantly renewed experience. We provide a unique platform for international retailers, digital native brands and brand ventures. With an exceptional dining and entertainment offer, we make each visit a truly memorable moment.
