Paris Nord 2 was designed and built by a public planner: Grand Paris Aménagement (Greater Paris Planning), previously AFTRP (Agence Foncière et Technique de la Région Parisienne (Parisian Region Property and Technical Agency)).

The foundation stone was laid in 1981. 300 hectares were then built and marketed, enabling the moving in of offices, activities, shops and services. This created a large private domain.

Architecture and Green Spaces

Green spaces

With 70 hectares of green spaces, Paris Nord 2 offers an outstanding work environment for companies and their employees. Wide avenues, wooded and landscaped spaces, ponds and fountains contribute to the park’s unique allure.

At the heart of Paris Nord 2 (300 ha) lies a green lung of 7,000 m²  and its water body, constituting a much-appreciated relaxation area.

The park was developed in harmony with its green heritage. Respect for the environment is a core concern.

Architecture favouring low-rise buildings, horizontal lines and glass  façades enabled a harmonious integration of the Park’s buildings and its environment.
