As Bouygues Immobilier's first residential project in the Euroméditerranée district, the Floressence development benefits from the buzz of a newly revitalised neighbourhood in a prime location, close to the city centre and with excellent public transport links (bus, tramway, metro)
With 1,500 m² of ground-floor retail space and 239 apartments (46 social housing units, 95 rental units for students and young working people, and 98 apartments for family owner-occupiers), Floressence was designed from the outset with exacting demands for urban integration and functional and social diversity in mind.
The brainchild of architect Jean Michel Battesti, the development blends seamlessly into its surroundings, the look of its walls recalling that of the warehouses which used to occupy the site. Combining cosy intimacy with timber-structure verandahs, the light, airy and comfortable apartments open onto the outside, offering fine sea views.
Designed to be environment-friendly, the Floressence building has solar panels which provide the apartments with domestic hot water, meeting up to 80% of their needs in summer. It has "NF Logement" residential certification and is one of the first BBC-effinergie® low-energy buildings to be inaugurated in Marseille.
