It was under a blue sky that on April 13, less than 18 months after the the first stone was laid, a few thousand customers gathered on the grounds of the last of the 23 McArthurGlen villages in Miramas, close to Salon de Provence.
Designed by architect Renaud Tarrazi and built by a group led by Eiffage Construction Méditerranée with the participation of
Eiffage Infrastructure, this circular village consisting of Provençal-style houses, contains nearly 150 shops and restaurants extending over an area of 25 000 square metres.
This high-consumption site is bright, designed with local materials such as tile, wood and Durance pebbles and is aiming for the BREAM Very Good certification.
It generates employment and purchasing power for the region.
Since its opening, the large crowds are proof that the site is a hit.
