In the historic city centre of Bordeaux Redevco developed a large-scale urban project, transforming an abandoned industrial site into a pleasant pedestrian district where life is organised around retail, leisure and housing. Promenade Sainte-Catherine, a 28,000 m2 large inner-city open air scheme including 19,000 m2 retail experience, is located right at the junction of rue Sainte Catherine and rue Porte Dijeaux, Bordeaux’s busiest high streets.
From design to construction, we integrated the concept of sustainability to all of the processes to ensure a clean site during and beyond the construction phase. This project combines respect for the environment and energy efficiency with an integrated architectural setting that adds value to the city.
The new nerve centre of Bordeaux comprises new and familiar brand names, both international and local, accommodated around a new central square in Bordeaux. All of them offer strong concepts in fashion, beauty, home furnishings, leisure and gastronomy. Many top brand names are here, like Lego, Bershka, Starbucks, Blue Box and Citadium to name a few. Promenade Sainte-Catherine is the perfect example of transforming a forgotten urban location into a vibrant place where people like to meet, to shop, to eat and to drink, in other words to create an experience.
