New ultra-modern waterfront residences in a privileged and exceptional location, facing the Seine River
Paris’ allure is as enduring as ever for international property buyers as it continues to hold the title of The Most Visited City in the World, attracting more than 15 million international visitors each year. With its robust foreign demand, elegant sophistication, cosmopolitan lifestyle and transparent tax and legal systems, Paris remains amongst the elite tier of “global cities”.
European buyers were the most active in the Paris luxury homes market in 2011, according to research from Knight Frank, but buyers from Russia, the Middle East and Asia increased their presence. Prices soared by 22% last year, according to Knight Frank’s Prime Global Cities Index – the highest of any city monitored – helped by demand from international buyers keen to find a base in the magnificent city. The capital provides heritage, culture and beauty, but its added advantage is that the price of prime Parisian property still represents value compared with many other key world cities.
Paris is seen as a “safe haven” in uncertain times, attracting a flow of investment from those seeking protection for their wealth. Due to the strong demand from both French and overseas investors, Paris offers attractive long-term capital growth opportunities.
It is a historic city, rich in culture, majestic Haussmann architecture, magnificent avenues, fashionable boutiques, traditional cafés and outstanding restaurants, all acting as a major pull factor for buyers seeking to combine property investment with a fine lifestyle.
The concentrated space means property supply is limited and new-build developments are rare in the centre of the city, and much sought-after. Demand will always exceed supply due to the absence of construction of new luxury residences in the capital.
Here is the first new-build development on the River Seine in 25 years, offering a rare opportunity to invest in “old Paris” in a location that affords river views. The excellent location and the striking design make it a unique proposition for luxury Paris real estate.
Located in the centre of Paris on the banks of the Seine River, the new residences will be truly extraordinary. The property offers the wonderfully unique combination of waterfront living and convenient access to the fantastic restaurants, charming cafés, chic boutiques and fine culture.
Superbly located in the heart of Paris’ 4th arrondissement, it is a short walk from the Marais, the Bastille and the Quartier Latin. Jog along the river banks and through the Jardin des Plantes, fill up on fresh food at the Boulevard Richard Lenoir market, visit the quaint shops on Rue Saint-Antoine, moor the boat at the Port de l’Arsenal, dream of yesteryear at Notre-Dame Cathedral, enjoy the beauty of Place des Vosges, savour a meal at a Rue de la Roquette restaurant, catch a movie at the cinema or a classic opera at the Bastille. The choices are endless.
The day-to-day is easy here, thanks to nearby access to public transportation and main thoroughfares, prestigious high schools and famous Latin Quarter universities.
With only 73 riverfront residences, here is a limited-edition collection of condominium homes that offer the very best in city living.
Combining the latest developments in eco-friendly design with strikingly modern architecture, the property presents a contemporary approach to exclusive urban living. Inspired by the adjacent water, the glamorous, ultra-modern building showcases an unmistakable free-flowing style reflecting the river. The high-performance and architecturally distinctive homes will incorporate the latest environmentally friendly technology, including energy-efficient heating systems, solar panels and state-of-the-art insulation.
Conceived to maximise space and luminosity, the über-stylish apartments afford residents an open-air feel, coupled with sleek architecture and high comfort. Iconically designed, the many floor-to-ceiling windows feature stunning views of the constantly changing panoramas. The elegant studios and 1-to-4-bedroom residences come with private balconies or terraces that allow the living space to be extended outdoors. The atmosphere blurs the line between inside and out and orchestrates light and shade to create a peaceful urban oasis.
Each of the luxury apartments has a unique layout to ensure owners experience a bespoke living quality, whilst giving each resident their one-of-a-kind Parisian home. With this in mind, the living space of 37-130m² guarantees maximum exposure to light and many different vantage points to the spectacular views of the city.
Intelligent spacing with few walls allows areas to open up into one another or be closed off, according to need. The same area can take on many different looks and uses, thanks to the optional Priva-Lite glass partitions. Opaque or transparent at the flick of a switch, the innovative dividers allow for instant layout changes.
In addition to the highly sought riverside location, the property captures the natural beauty, with three lovely gardens designed by landscape architects Bassinet Turquin. The expansive gardens blend charm and Old World beauty with modern flair and elegance, showcasing glorious trees and a wide array of carefully selected aromatic plants.
Offering investors an unmatched quality of life and an attractive investment, this is Paris at its best.
