With work now complete, Gilles BOISSONNET, Chairman of Altarea Commerce’s Management Board today opened the new Cap3000 shopping centre in Saint-Laurent-du-Var, close to Nice. Christian ESTROSI Nice Côte d’Azur President and Provence-Alpes-Côte d’Azur President and Joseph SEGURA, Mayor of Saint-Laurent-du-Var, attended the opening.

This event marked an important milestone in the renovation of this centre, which has been popular with shoppers for nearly 50 years. Equipped with an enhanced digital system, Cap3000, which enjoys a wonderful position overlooking the sea, is one of the most emblematic centres in Europe.

The work, which involved a refurbishment and the construction of the North section and car parks, has given Cap3000 increased potential. The renovation and extension work, which pooled the talents of architects and designers to create the overall design, has definitely made the most of the area and its assets.
