Tertiary real estate: an inaccessible hyper-center of Bordeaux & nbsp ;? (4/14)
The Bordeaux Golden Triangle, built around the Place des Grands-Hommes, is the unofficial name of the area bounded by the alleys of Tourny, the Cours Clemenceau and the Cours de l'Intendance. The scarcity of goods drives the top prices (the highest on the market for a given number of transactions) to 300 € / m2. Naturally, this creates a certain inertia for the companies that are installed there and who wish to stay there. "We are in a situation of shortage, says Valery Carron, Director of Transactions of BNP Paribas Real Estate Bordeaux. Certainly, there are some operations in the old one but today there are no possibilities to exit new operations new offices, especially as the soaring prices in housing have generated competition. " In addition, the old one has charm but allows only a very moderate adaptation of spaces. "More expensive and less qualitative, often without air conditioning, with peaks at 250 € / m2 or more excluding taxes, charges, excluding parking, but very popular despite everything", summarizes a professional.
The city center can be delimited by the space delimited by the edge of the Chartrons district, that of Euratlantique and the Place de la Victoire at the end of rue Sainte-Catherine. This meager market has an office vacancy rate of just 3%, which means that places are expensive (in every way). Liberal professions, service companies ... are well established there. It is therefore better to count on a good network to find a good surprise. This is what happened for the startup Keyclic, which is evolving in the world of building management and the coordination of trades intended to intervene there. Accompanied and hosted by the eco-creative nursery of Chartrons, he had to leave this cozy nest: "We were mainly offered large areas sold as divisible. I also thought of renting an apartment and developing it in Finally, I found it on a stroke of luck, "explains its CEO Baptiste Yvenat. A discussion at the right time with someone who had the right information, and Keyclic found a place at the Data Factory, a stone's throw from Place Gambetta: "The building is superb, the services very good, there is a kitchen, swimming pool and location in hyper-center is perfect. The latter is very important in the context of recruiting tech profiles. This is one of the questions that is most quickly raised on the phone by the candidates. talk about salary, then they ask where the startup is located in the city center. " This Data Factory was also born from a thwarted real estate history. When looking for new premises for his company, Addinsoft, entrepreneur Thierry Fahmy comes across this particular building, developing 400 m2 and offering a roof terrace. The premises are too large for his SME, but the idea comes to him to share them with other companies gravitating in the world of computer data. The Data Factory was born this way, offering a total of 60 workstations. Keyclic will settle there in a few days.
