Eiffage Immobilier inaugurates a mixed-use development in Cherbourg-en-Cotentin, as part of the vast

Gwendal GAUTIER, Grand-Ouest Director of Eiffage Immobilier, Gilbert LEPOITTEVIN, President of Presqu'Île Habitat, Hervé DUPONT, Operations Support Director at Domitys and Pascal PLEUVY, Basse Normandie and Centre Director of Eiffage Construction, inaugurated the three residences of the "Zac des Bassins" in the presence of Benoit ARRIVE, Mayor of Cherbourg-en-Cotentin, on 11 October 2022.

In the heart of the Bassins district, Eiffage immobilier has just delivered a 119-unit senior citizens' residence in co-development with Aegide and operated by Domitys, with 30 social housing units and 30 units for sale to the public. This property complex, with a floor area of 10,930 m², is being built on a plot of land transferred by SHEMA, the developer of the district for the city in 2019.

Created in 2005, the ZAC des Bassins is a vast urban renewal operation whose development project concerns the creation of a new district, a real link between the town centre and the Val de Saire district, where the Centre Hospitalier Public du Cotentin is located.

The architect who designed the project, Bienvenu Architects, was able to conceive a project that fully integrates into the urban and landscaped environment of the ZAC des Bassins project.

The senior citizens' residence, called "Les Salines" and operated by Domitys, has 119 flats (from studios to three-roomed flats) with well-appointed facilities adapted to senior citizens, and has more than 800 m2 of user-friendly spaces for relaxation and services.  
This residence is helping to revitalise the local economy as it will generate around twenty jobs when it opens in November 2022.

The second building, "Quai Rive Droite", is a contemporary residence of 30 flats (from T2 to T3), to be delivered in spring 2022 by Eiffage Immobilier, which is in line with the changing urban landscape. On its façade, the diversity of expression of the forms and colours gives the building a visual singularity. All the flats have terraces or balconies, some of which open onto a landscaped area in the heart of the block.

The residence complies with current construction standards for the comfort of its residents, two-thirds of whom are owner-occupiers. Particular care has been taken with the equipment designed to reduce the energy impact.

Finally, the third building, comprising 30 homes, will be delivered in mid-June 2022 and is entitled "Résidence Le Calypso". It is a social residence for which the VEFA (Vente en l'Etat Futur d'Achèvement) has been signed with Presqu'île Habitat, a Cherbourg-based social landlord. 

The work, entrusted to Eiffage Construction, began in August 2020 and will have mobilised nearly 100 workers at the height of the activity.

With this major project, the teams from the Grand-Ouest region of Eiffage Immobilier and Eiffage Construction have confirmed their expertise in managing large-scale projects. Congratulations to them on this project, which was delivered without reservation!
