In addition to setting up the regional EDF Commerce Méditerranée division in the business district created by Euroméditerranée, the EDF Group has been closely involved since the start of the project. In particular, EDF and its subsidiaries were appointed energy provider for the SMARTSEILLE ecodistrict, at the service of its residents, with optimised energy expenditure. The EDF Group developed a heating/cooling solution there from a warm sea water loop. The sea water loop regulates energy exchanges by balancing supply and demand.

After the inauguration of our B&B, Marseilles La Joliette, end 2010, our second hotel, which opened end 2013, reinforced our presence in this emblematic and fully renovated district. We currently have 250 rooms in what can be considered to be the new Marseilles town centre, and which is the new business district in the city.
Georges Sampeur, B&B Hotels Group Chairman
We share the same ambition with Euroméditerranée, an attractive and extensive town centre in Marseilles. Not a single French town has attempted as many positive transformations over the last few years! It is therefore only naturally that Deloitte set up in the Docks, at the heart of the Euroméditerranée project.
Vincent Gros, Managing Partner Deloitte
Covivio (formerly Foncière des Régions), leading real estate operator in Europe, specialising in office and hotel real estate, is today the recognised partner of the companies and regions it accompanies in their property strategy. Ever present on flourishing markets, we chose Marseilles very early on! We have our heart set on sharing our vision of Marseilles and our beliefs in that respect, a dynamic and attractive territory which has considerable advantages and which must continue its development in a coordinated and consistent manner. The work requires significant investment, which must be continued!
Christophe Kullmann, Covivio General Manager
