With plans in place to increase the district’s appeal to investors over the next 10 years, La Défense is set to become an even more attractive place for businesses. There has been a shift away from the objective to create new buildings and space, which has been replaced by an emphasis on improvements to current office space and renovations of the urban environment.
For companies looking for office space in and around Paris, La Défense is a great cost-effective option. While comparative spaces in the city centre can reach up to €1000 per person per month, the prices in La Défense are more likely to be in the bracket of €500 – 800 per person per month for serviced office space. It is always important to remember that serviced offices usually cover a variety of amenities such as meeting rooms, parking, business support services and Internet, and as such can offer great value for money when compared to traditional leases.
Instant Offices are able to accommodate most enquiries, from one person through to 100 or more depending on the specifics so whether you are an entrepreneur looking for coworking space, a small business or start-up looking for a small private office, or a major company in need of larger spaces, we’ll have an option to suit your needs.
Why choose La Défense?
While the majority of tourists that visit Paris each year tend to focus their excursions on Tour Eiffel, the Louvre and Notre Dame, if they travelled a little further west, outside of the centre of the city they would find an area that is sometimes described as ‘the world’s museum of modern architecture. Not only does the area have quick links to central Paris, it is also considerably cheaper to rent office space here making it the ideal option.
