Swiss Life Asset Managers France has adapted the “Beehive” to meet tenants’ new needs for comfort, services and flexibility. The commercialisation of the office sector complex has accelerated over the past 12 months.

This office sector complex, designed by Icade, was delivered in the first quarter of 2020. The “Beehive” has found its market by surpassing the 3,000 sqm leased mark.

Strategically located asset

Ideally located at the exit of the A7, the “Beehive” is also close to the Griffon Park and large shopping areas (Grand Vitrolles and Plan Campagne). Marseille Provence Airport and the Aix TGV train station are less than 10 minutes away by car.

Many companies have been seduced by this location since the “Beehive” complexincludes major players in the industry and service sectors (Générali, Segula Technologies, Scalian, Ipeca Msae, Seafrigo Group, Baticel Construction, Onet Main Sécurité, Randstad and Actual).

A hybrid and friendly location aimed at guaranteeing the comfort of tenants…

Each floor has access to private terraces and many car parks allow the installation of charging stations. Fiber optics have been added to ensure tenants have a smooth and comfortable browsing experience. With the same aim in mind, La Ruche was created, a hybrid room that acts as a cafeteria, meeting room, coworking and afterwork space. Each tenant has access to this modular and friendly space. Potentially privatisable, La Ruche also has its own terrace.

… that responds to environmental challenges and participates in the dynamics of the territory

With certification as a sustainable high-performance building and aiming for an energy performance of RT 2012-30%, the "Beehive" is an effective response to the city’s goal of developing its service-sector offerings.

“We are pleased to lease these offices to quality companies and thank the local players for their support. Exemplary interms of energy consumption, the “Beehive” will make a lasting contribution to the dynamism and attractiveness of the municipality" says Anne-Marie Aurières-Perrin, Head of Asset Management and Real Estate Services at Swiss Life Asset Managers France.
