Tour Esplanade

Tour Esplanade is a 36-story office tower featuring a rentable area of 572,145 square feet and a two-story parking garage. The property is located in the heart of the business district of La Défense in Paris, the largest business district in Europe.

Tour Esplanade was built to a modern, high-quality standard by the architects Andrault & Parat in 1990. The shape of the tower—a sail—offers occupants direct access to natural light, and its privileged location—between the CNIT and the ring road—provides a panoramic view of Paris and its surroundings. The 32 upper floors have a surface area of 18,299 square feet. The building area is approximately 511,100 square feet, featuring suspended ceilings. The property is entirely let to SFR, one of the largest telecommunications service providers in France.

Additional amenities of Tour Esplanade include conference facilities, a sports center, a 150-seat auditorium, a 670-seat restaurant, and 552 private car parking spaces. At the foot of the building is a landscaped area of over 10,764 square feet and an enclosed patio. The property itself, situated between the CNIT Exhibition Centre and the Grande Arche, shares its general location with numerous prestigious occupants, including GDF-SUEZ, KPMG, SNCF, and Société Générale.

Tour Esplanade lies in a central location of the business district La Défense, just 820 feet from the main pedestrian avenue. La Défense offers 32 million square feet of office space, hosting 3,600 companies, 1,500 headquarters, and 200,000 employees. Located 2 miles west of Paris’s city limits at Porte Maillot, La Défense extends at length from the main east-west thoroughfare starting at the Louvre, progressing up the Champs Elysées and avenue de la Grande Armée, through the city limits at Porte Maillot, on along the avenue Charles de Gaulle in Neuilly and culminating at the Grande Arche of La Défense. The plentiful transport amenities include Metro Line 1 (Esplanade Station and Grande Arche Station), the main east-west RER Line A, the southern suburbs tramway, the western residential SNCF railway, and various bus routes.
