Chapman Taylor can report that a 130,000m² scheme to link Evry2 shopping centre, which we are currently refurbishing, with Evry town centre, has been publicly unveiled by our clients SCC at the prestigious SIEC retail conference.

Built in 1975, Evry2 is a super-regional shopping centre near Paris which hosts 220 shops. The development’s refurbishment will refresh and extend the offer, providing a diverse range of retail, leisure and entertainment options for visitors.

The transformed space will house a new, 6,000m² F&B zone, with everything from street food to fine dining available.

The city’s Place de l’Agora and Place des Terrasses will be transformed, becoming vibrant public squares which will knit Evry2 into the urban fabric of the town centre, creating a unified shopping and leisure experience at the heart of Evry.

The scheme also includes a renovated cinema, a 1,000m² gym and an exhibition space to add to the existing events venue, swimming pool and ice rink, providing a day-out experience for people of all generations.

Chapman Taylor’s Brussels and Paris studios are working together with Brainjuice design consultants on the project, with the Brussels studio working on the refurbishment and, alongside designers Brainjuice, on the new-build elements. The Paris studio is focusing on working with the local authority to deliver the Brainjuice design for the public amenities around the development.
