In 2006, the developer Art Prom launched this project to renovate the former sorting centre of the Tours post office, destined to be demolished. The project offers a net surface area of 13,000 sqm divided equally between commercial activity and housing:
The original building was a parallelepiped: 100 m long, 25 m wide and 18 m high. The design of its reconfiguration aims to give rhythm to the ensemble and to include open spaces in a previously enclosed structure. The block was therefore split into two lengthwise, adding a large circulation structure that brings together all the common areas between the two sections.
The “Nef” building therefore owes its name to this vast central covered area that will house all the passageways leading to both the offices and housing.
