In Neuilly, a Citroën garage gives way to a brand new building
He was well known to the people of Neuilly sur Seine (92) but will no longer be part of the landscape of this affluent commune of Hauts-de-Seine. A Citroën garage, almost centenary, has just been completely demolished (see our slideshow in the main illustration) and will be replaced by the summer of 2025 by a brand new 7-storey building. “This is the kind of site (the garage) what we are looking for for our programs: a hollow tooth in the heart of the cityexplains Marc Deletang, director of the Paris & Hauts-de-Seine agency of Bouygues Immobilier.
The developer, in partnership with Novaxia, which specializes in the transformation of obsolete buildings into housing, has opted for Neuilly-sur-Seine, renowned for its quality of life, and an avenue very popular with property buyers, particularly for its shops and its position. central in the city. This is Avenue Achille Peretti (see map below), for connoisseurs, named after the former mayor of the city (mayor from 1947 to 1983) who preceded Nicolas Sarkozy (from 1983 to 2002 ). “Nothing sells for less than 11,000 euros per m² in this district“says a real estate agent. Add outdoor space and proximity to the Bois de Boulogne, and prices can soar far beyond that.
This will be the case for the next apartments that will see the light of day close to the town hall. The prices are dizzying: from 1.65 million to 3.3 million euros. For homes of 4 to 6 rooms. The m² is negotiated, for the most part, between 16,000 and 17,000 euros. But can be around 22,000 euros per m² (!) like this 80 m² apartment with a 138 m² terrace and located on the 6th floor, which is for sale at 1.75 million euros. Rates that have seducedmany Neuilléans but also families of French expatriates from Qatar, China or the United States who will make their new home their second home», explains Coralie Deforge, program manager of the Paris & Hauts-de-Seine agency of Bouygues Immobilier. “In addition to the address, these properties benefit from a unique architecture, most of them have a terrace which offers views of the city, the surrounding gardens and well beyond, towards Paris and the west of Paris, but also innovations adapted to new uses“, underlines Mélanie Michoux, director of operations of the same agency.
A camera that detects your license plate
Thus, at the entrance to the car park, a camera identifies the license plates and automatically detects the vehicles of the residents who will therefore not need to present an access card. For fans of soft mobility, a 44 m² room will be equipped with bicycle racks and another 9 m² will be dedicated to electric scooters. The corridor of the entrance hall will be entitled to an artistic touch since it will be transformed, for two years, into an art gallery where works by contemporary painters will be exhibited. Hence the name of the program: Galerie Peretti. Like in a museum.
A total of 56 homes will come out of the ground within two and a half years: 39 private, 9 of which will be resold in usufruct to Seqens (subsidiary of Action Logement) which will manage the other 17 apartments which are social housing. If you are interested, know that there are only four left for sale, including two exceptional apartments which benefit from an artist’s studio or 2 adjoining studios. Their prices vary between 1.6 and 3.3 million euros for surfaces between 80 and 182 m². “The program is a great success», rejoices Marc Deletang.
Not sure, however, that the neighbors appreciate the site very much. Because, as you can see in our slideshow (in the main illustration), the future building will be embedded between two other residences. In addition to noise pollution, access to the site risks being particularly complicated for machinery, especially in an avenue as busy as Avenue Achille Peretti. “We will increase public meetings with local residents to keep them informed of the progress of the work.“, tries to reassure Marc Deletang.
