The attraction of Greater Paris continues to evolve
Health crisis, transformation of working methods, quest for a better quality of life... For almost two years now, our society has been undergoing profound transformations that are pushing us to collectively modify our apprehension of territories. Whether for the resident or for the company, the question remains the same: in one's relationship with the city, should one favour proximity of access to goods and services and therefore accept density, promiscuity even, or on the contrary be attached to a greener, more spacious, calmer living space?
Do companies still need so much office space?
Following on from the work that Colliers France carried out in 2019 on the impact of the arrival of the Grand Paris Express, we have extended our reflection by exploring variables that are more related to quality of life. This third part of our report on the Grand Paris region focuses on the areas that will be more effectively integrated into the Ile-de-France urban system in the years to come, highlighting the opportunities or, on the contrary, the risks that will weigh on the Ile-de-France region in the future.
In the years to come, companies will be looking to better combine economic performance and territorial efficiency; to have a high quality urban setting, maximum accessibility, in a building with a high level of services, all for an acceptable price. Therefore, anticipating the buildings or districts subject to disaffection also means better preparing their reconversion. What will be the consequences of remote work? Colliers anticipates an increased concentration of companies around the major hubs in the Ile-de-France region, and in particular the railway stations, but also a renewed interest by companies in the provinces and therefore the beginning of a new dynamic in the heart of territories that are sometimes remote but very well connected to Paris.
