Bold architecture for a shopping mecca
Forming a valuable link between the area south of the Loire and the Nantes city center, Beaulieu is the largest shopping venue in Nantes. Located on the Île de Nantes just 5 minutes from the rail station, Beaulieu is a center with a big personality. Its high-quality customer pathway and amazing exterior of colorful rectangles and enormous metal leaves present a spectacular public face to the city.
Its 120 stores, marketing promotions, hospitality policy and services have all contributed to a 5.7% increase in footfall in just one year. Beaulieu is fully committed to sustainable development, with a living roof clad in pre-planted turf that provides thermal insulation as well as rainwater storage, and a car park with 1,800 sq.m. of solar panels—a powerful photovoltaic generating plant in its own right.
Only 10 minutes from the historic center of Nantes by car, bus or bike, the Beaulieu center will eventually benefit from a total redesign of its surroundings and landscaping on the banks of the Loire.
Klépierre only manages this center.
