Covivio acquired 125 avenue Brancolar in Nice's Cimiez district in 2001. At the time, the site was occupied by ENEDIS teams and was an enclosed space that could not be crossed by local residents. Moreover, the main building was remarkable for its concrete tripod shape. When Enedis decided to leave the site in 2021, Covivio initiated a project to transform the office space into a residential development open to the neighbourhood and its residents.

Breathing new life into a neighbourhood

Through this redevelopment project, Covivio’s ambition is to breathe new life into this area, reconnecting it with its surroundings and offering local residents a new destination. This ambitious programme is being carried out in consultation with the city of Nice and local residents, and is part of Covivio’s drive to contribute to the regeneration of France’s property stock.

The project also aims to provide local services for local residents. The redevelopment of the site will make it easier to access existing shops and services, and will enable 3 new shops and a nursery to be set up. The revitalisation of the area’s commercial life should also generate the creation of around 50 new jobs.

This project is a real team effort, based on ongoing dialogue with the city of Nice, local residents and our partners. We are developing it with the ambition of building well-being, enhancing the quality of life of the residents, rebuilding the city on itself and preserving the environment, while at the same time designing homes for our customers that are more open to nature, with local service areas that are essential for the area.

Offering a new place to live

This redevelopment project aims to develop a top-of-the-range, inclusive and intergenerational programme comprising :

  • Senior citizens’ residence (113 rooms)
  • 109 free housing units
  • 12 residential units under a Solidarity Lease
  • 4 inclusive homes (41 units) managed by associations for people with disabilities
  • 7 social housing units
  • 6,300 m² of green spaces

The ambition of the project is to offer a diverse range of housing adapted to the different profiles of residents (families, young professionals, the elderly, people with disabilities, etc.). Our aim is to create a new living space with multiple and diverse uses, guided by the principles of well-being, diversity and sharing,

Living in the heart of a park

In order to create new uses and new functions (meeting places, places for people to pass through, places to relax, etc.), a vast park of more than 3,000 m² will be created, offering a diversified programme with a public lawn, vegetable garden, greenhouses, play areas, etc.
