A committed real estate policy

RATP Group has been pursuing an ambitious and innovative real estate policy for over 30 years. Our aim is to meet the challenges of the urban integration of our industrial sites and to promote functional diversity by redeveloping our wealth of industrial and tertiary sites (around 100) in the heart of the city.

This puts us in a unique position to respond to the increasingly complex challenges facing cities today: addressing density, climate pressure, boom in e-commerce, growth of teleworking, social inequalities…

Whether supporting new projects stemming from network extensions or redeveloping our properties, we offer sustainable and innovative solutions to bring value to the heart of the city. We are therefore creating real neighbourhoods by juxtaposing or superimposing housing, offices or gardens.

Creating neighbourhoods

RATP Group has been developing a strategy of urban integration of its industrial sites for over 30 years and has implemented innovative and bold projects both in terms of architecture and technology. They all share a common eco-design approach and meet demanding environmental and energy requirements.

 

The redevelopment of industrial sites, driving concerted urban integration

The Group’s industrial sites are in the midst of a transformation due to the energy transition and changing mobility. Bus depots are moving to bio-NGV and electrical power, and the gradual automation of metro lines is leading to the renewal of more efficient rolling stock. Our industrial sites are located in the heart of the cities and are therefore ideally placed to develop urban service activities beyond their primary vocation.
Depending on the needs expressed, our redevelopment projects will, on a case-by-case basis, prioritise the construction of housing, student residences, public amenities, gardens and shops on a single site.

Confronting the challenge of a complex architecture.

RATP Group pays particular attention to the architectural quality of its real estate projects to ensure their urban integration into the city. As every project must adopt an environmentally friendly urban form, RATP invites tenders from architects for each project. This collaborative approach ensures that the projects are better adapted to and integrated into the city.

Céline Tignol, Real Estate Director, RATP Group
“Urban and pedestrian travel through strategic city centre areas was impossible until now due to the enclosed nature of our industrial sites like Vaugirard, which covers 2 hectares in the middle of the 15th arrondissement. Opening these areas up has enabled other features to emerge in these neighbourhoods and new connections are being created within the urban fabric. With this project, we firmly believe and demonstrate that a productive city can be synonymous with a quality urban environment which serves both the residents and the regions.”

Intensifying building uses

Since 2021, RATP Logistics has provided an integrated service within Solutions Ville by RATP Group to enable logistics companies to use partially unoccupied RATP sites during the day with no modifications or costly investment required. The sites are made available in the form of time and space sharing: an example of this is the bus depots used by logistics companies during limited time periods. On other sites, an area is set up and equipped for full-time logistics use. These new logistic bases house fleets of the company’s own clean vehicles used for last-mile deliveries.

"Urban logistics, a major challenge regarding quality of life in cities."

Véronique Bennegent, Head of Development Urban Logistics Solutions City
“Our bus depots have industrial volumes and are partially unoccupied during the day. For example, the Corentin bus depot near Porte d’Orléans, where 200 buses are parked at night, is almost completely empty during the daytime, and provides an area of nearly 900 m² for green deliveries which can be made between 7:00 a.m. and 7:00 p.m.”

Designing new workspaces

Remote working became the norm during the pandemic, and is now revolutionising working methods and encouraging us to rethink spaces to combine periods of concentration and co-creation. RATP Group is following this movement by inventing open and dynamic spaces that adapt to these new needs.

Simplifying the activities of workers and increasing flexibility

Our subsidiary company, RATP Real Estate, has recently launched its Urban Station corpoworking offering, which includes consulting, development and rental of B2B workspaces and meeting rooms. Owners who subscribe to this service are guaranteed a long-term, more secure lease or service contract. Urban Station is aiming to develop over 140,000 m² of corpoworking space by 2025.

“RATP Real Estate has been developing large-scale property projects for RATP but also for public or private sector clients for over 30 years. Its aim is to transform, develop, open up and develop innovative and inclusive spaces that simplify activities, accompany changes and new uses.

In this spirit, RATP Real Estate has just launched Urban Station, a corpoworking space and events offering to connect urban dwellers in the heart of cities.”

Making the city more unified and inclusive

Supporting residents of the Île-de-France region throughout their life journey

RATP Habitat, the Group’s social housing subsidiary, was created over 60 years ago and now builds, refurbishes and manages approximately 9,000 rental properties in the Île-de-France region. By providing access to properties that are below market price, it undertakes to buy back the property and rehouse the occupants in the event of difficulties. In addition, by using the community land trust system, it can offer access to property for nearly 30% lower than prices on the private market on average.

"RATP Habitat: a local landlord"

Claire Goudineau, RATP Habitat director
“RATP Habitat is exceptional in its complex project management expertise. As part of the Group, we are specifically developing our housing offering on top of industrial sites that are frequently closed-off in the heart of the city and require real expertise in managing projects in constrained environments and through local management. We listen to our tenants and offer an optimal, consistent quality of service.
With some 150 employees, including 67 caretakers available to them within our buildings, and an in-house Customer Centre, RATP Habitat handles their requests directly, as quickly as possible. Where necessary, our social and family finance advisors help our tenants with various procedures, including claims for assistance and paying off their debts.
We also have the capacity to find emergency solutions, such as rapidly re-homing women who are victims of domestic abuse. I can say, with humility but also a little pride, that our policy pays dividends: a recent survey of one-third of the tenants of our properties revealed a 90.6% satisfaction rate among respondents.”

Making the city come alive, together, through transitional urban planning

Urban change takes a long time with regard to project design. The transition period can last up to several years, but the act of breathing life and activity into the sites where these projects will be implemented is preferable to abandoning them. For RATP Group, the conversion of its industrial sites and the implementation of real estate projects are opportunities to include a phase of transitional occupation of its land while setting up future projects to make its sites available for social, community, artistic and recreational projects with the aim of keeping neighbourhoods alive and encouraging the mixing of people and practices.
