First tree celebration in Arles

VIRTUO symbolically lays the first tree of its negative artificialization V.PARK in Arles.

Arles, September 22, 2022: the symbolic tree laying ceremony took place with Mrs. Catherine BALGUERIERAULET, Deputy Mayor of Arles, Head of Ecological Transition, Biodiversity and Natural Spaces, Urban Works and Development, Territorial Planning and also Community Councillor, together with the co investor AXA IM Alts and Gregory BLOUIN, President of VIRTUO as promoter and co-investor.

To celebrate the launch of the V.PARK ARLES construction site, VIRTUO has planted the first tree on the future logistics platform, a state-of-the-art 30,000 m2 facility built in partnership with the fund manager AXA IM Alts. Virtuo will be developing two buildings totaling approximately 45,000 m2 on a 10-hectare plot of land formerly owned by DHL.

Virtuo leads several sustainable development initiatives in Arles 1, including BREEAM VERY GOOD certification, and uses the roof to produce renewable energy that will be partly used by the building. This project is an example of land conservation in the era of Zero Net Artificialization, as it generates a positive balance. After completion of the work, we will be giving back 1.3 hectares of natural areas and biodiversity to nature.

Grégory Blouin, President of Virtuo Industrial Property: “We are proud to be giving new life to this site whilst participating in a virtuous circle of land de-artificialization. »

Virtuo Industrial Property is working alongside HTC as main contractor on this project. The delivery is expected for the end of 2022.
