Why are companies choosing to locate their offices in Paris?

Paris has always had a diverse economy and is home to major players from sectors ranging from energy to fashion, media to technology, and everything in between.

Paris office space is equally diverse ranging from 19th century terraces in the first arrondissement to Grade A office space in modern glass skyscrapers in Paris La Défense.

La Défense is 3kms outside of Central Paris and is Europe’s largest purpose-built business district comprising of 1,400 acres, over 70 buildings, many of which are skyscrapers, and 3.5 million square metres (38 million square feet) of office space. The district, which was incepted in 1958 hosts office occupiers including: Arcelor, AXA, EDF, Elf, Société Générale and Total, as well as hotels, restaurants, gyms, conference centres and other amenities.

Paris has been a major centre of finance since the nineteenth century and is today home to the European Securities and Markets Authority (ESMA). It is home to many organisations and institutions involved in equity trading, futures and options trading, insurance, corporate banking and asset management.

Paris has many institutions of higher education and there are also many business schools including HEC, INSEAD, and ESCP Europe, meaning that there is a deep talent pool from which businesses can recruit.

How much do serviced offices in Paris cost?

 Serviced office costs track the leasing costs of traditional office space which means there are many variables such as location – whether the office is in the 1starrondissement or in La Defense, and the quality of the office building, the amount of space taken, the particulars of a deal and many other factors.

With serviced offices, the monthly payment is inclusive of rent, taxes, utilities, cleaning, furnishings, repairs, insurance and other items that would normally have to be individually managed and paid in a traditionally rented office.

Please Contact us and we can let you know the latest serviced office pricing information that would be specific to your desired location, property, amount of space and your bespoke requirements.

What is included with serviced office space in Paris?

Aside from the aforementioned items, additional services often included with serviced offices are: call answering services, mail handling, meeting room hire, use of printers and copiers, access to networking events, and many other items that vary from office-to-office.
