Sold off-plan in October 2018, this building is part of the Karré block developed by Icade. This mixed-use block is ideally located in the Carré de Soie district, one of the four major business hubs in Greater Lyon: a booming business ecosystem and one of the largest employment areas in Lyon.
Designed by Rue Royale Architectes, the K-Bis building is strategically located and enjoys excellent transport links: right next to a T3 tram station and a Line A metro station, close to a ring road exit and only 10 minutes from the Saint-Exupéry Airport. It consists of a four-storey and a seven-storey section with spacious accessible terraces and 82 underground parking spaces.
The building aims to obtain the best environmental labels and certifications, including the Effinergie+ label and HQE certification for service sector buildings with an Excellent rating. The goal is also for the building to surpass Thermal Regulation RT 2012 by at least -40%. In addition, K-Bis received a Pyramide d'Argent from the French Federation of Real Estate Developers (FPI) in the Lyon area.
“After completing the 144-unit Karré Velvet residential building in 2019 and the 9,930-sq.m Karré office building, the end of work on K-Bis means that the Karré block is now complete. This major urban development project will add to the appeal of Carré de Soie, a district that is now an ideal, genuinely diverse place to live and work. This project is therefore fully in line with Icade's Purpose and confirms our role as a partner of choice for Greater Lyon.”, declared Emmanuel Desmaizières, CEO of Icade Promotion.
“We are very pleased to have been handed over the K-Bis building. It has been a unique opportunity to be a part of an ambitious urban project and expand our presence in Greater Lyon. This building's location and design are both socially and environmentally responsible and perfectly reflect the vision and strategy of Société de la Tour Eiffel,” explained Thomas Georgeon, CEO of Société de la Tour Eiffel.
