The densification of Paris Nord 2

Double the property portfolio by 2030…

The constant and controlled growth of Paris Nord 2, associated with the dynamism and the development of the North-East region of Paris (in particular around Paris-Charles de Gaulle airport), naturally leads the Park to plan its development in terms of densification.
Paris Nord 2 therefore will strengthen its property portfolio by implementing a new urban plan based on the increase of multiple hundreds of thousands of square meters of buildable surface area, while conserving the landscape quality.
At the end of 2013, the three consulting firms mandated by Grand Paris Aménagement – previously A.F.T.R.P. (public planner for the park), finalised the study and the draft of the densification and registered it in the Local Urban Plans of the municipalities in question.
The process of densification will occur progressively, according to the needs and the requests of the owners and investors. By constructing buildings with one to two extra floors on average, Paris Nord 2 could obtain more than 2 million square meters (double present capacity) and accommodate between 50,000 and 70,000 employees.

Plan de Déplacements InterEntreprises (PDIE)

Paris Nord 2 has committed to a Multi-company Mobility Plan.

This is a voluntary process of analysis of home-work and business travel generated by the employees and companies of the park.

This process culminated in the setting up of an eco-mobility action plan aiming to improve travel conditions in the business park, improving their costs and their environmental impact.

New transport methods

New modes of transport at Paris Nord 2…

Paris Nord 2 is directly concerned by major transport projects in the zone of Grand Roissy, and more generally of Greater Paris. This increased offer is essential to the development of Paris Nord 2, whose densification project involves the accommodation of more than 70,000 employees within 30 years.
The “Parc des Expositions” station will be entirely redeveloped to accommodate by 2027 the automatic line 17 of Grand Paris Express, enabling direct links with all of the strategic economic zones of the Parisian region.
New bus lines and soft transport methods (car sharing, car-pooling, electric bikes, shuttles) will complement and reinforce this offer.

Electric bikes for Paris Nord 2…

In the framework of its ISO 14001 certification, Paris Nord 2 is invested in developing transport methods which respect the environment: car sharing, High Level Service Buses, and electric bikes.
In addition to the Department Scheme for Cycle Routes and shared networks, Paris Nord 2 is using its own cycle route, almost 15 km of routes open to users.
To complete and consolidate the deployment of the cycling route in the park, Paris Nord 2 offers an electric bike rental service. Its main objective is to enable employees who use bus and RER to reach their company quickly via the rail hub with a practical and environmentally-friendly transport method.
Thanks to the commitment entered into with the EDF regarding renewable energies, the bikes will be powered with green energy.

Urban lighting

Modernisation of the urban lighting of Paris Nord 2:

  • Security
  • Comfort
  • Energy saving

Very committed to environmental concerns, the management centre of the Paris Nord 2 park is launching renovation works on the urban lighting infrastructure. These works are motivated by the ageing of the current infrastructure (over 35 years), which has been rendered obsolete by the major technical development in this sector in the last few decades, and also by the increasingly high operational maintenance costs of the equipment year on year.
In total, more than 21 km of power lines and 611 light points, street and pedestrian, which are concerned by the renovation program, began works in March 2018 for a total period of 19 months.
Several measures are underway to enable the park to meet the recommendations of the AFE (French Lighting Association), such as the removal of concrete masts, higher-performance lighting sources, reliable electricity networks They will enable 50% energy savings while at the same time resulting in more efficient lighting.
Furthermore, the lighting masts are or shall be equipped with sensor media, Wi-Fi terminals, video surveillance cameras, and event lighting. This adds value to the existing infrastructure.
However, the performance of such works is not without its inconveniences. We also ask you to remain vigilant when approaching worksite zones marked out with specific security equipment.
