The very colourful La Marseillaise tower
31 October 2018 - Events - France
The La Marseillaise tower, erected by VINCI Construction France for Constructa, was inaugurated on 25 October in Marseille (south of France) in the presence of Marc Pietri, chairman & CEO of Constructa, Jean Nouvel, architect, Xavier Huillard, chairman & CEO of VINCI and Hugues Fourmentraux, chairman of VINCI Construction France.
Located in the heart of the Euroméditerranée neighbourhood, alongside the CMA CGM tower, also built by VINCI Construction France, this new structure dominates the harbour of Marseille. Its creation required 18,000 sq. metres of concrete, 1,700 tonnes of steel and 3,820 sun screen panels in ultra-high performance fibre concrete (UHPFC) decorated in 30 different colours.
Designed by architect Jean Nouvel, the 135 m-high, 31-storey tower is the first very tall building of developer Constructa’s Quais d’Arenc project. Offering 35,000 sq. metres of office space, a staff restaurant (2,500 sq. metres), a crèche and a concierge service, and with provision for five shops around the impressive entrance hall, it also features a business centre and collaborative workspaces.
The tower was inaugurated on 25 October 2018.
