The new center for the Grand Paris
Le Millénaire opened in April 2011, just 200 yards from the Porte d’Aubervilliers. Its 130 boutiques, its architecture, and its exceptional setting draw residents from the area just North of Paris and Parisians who live in the northeast of Paris.
The mall benefits from a transportation hub: direct access to the freeway, a tramway, 4 bus lines, Paris métro lines 12 and 7, and a water taxi. In 2015, two pedestrian walkways will connect the center directly to the Claude Bernard urban development zone, the Macdonald warehouses and the RER E Rosa Parks station.
More and more businesses are choosing to locate in North Paris. The EMGP business park, Alain Afflelou, BNP Paribas, SFR, Xerox, AFNOR, AB Groupe and, in 2015, la Cité de la Justice (1,500 people), then, in 2017, the headquarters of Veolia (3,000 people), not to mention the students studying on the Condorcet campus (15,500 people).
