Paris' Golden Triangle
A concentration of wealth.
What is the Golden Triangle?
The Triangle d'Or, part of the Paris CBD, is the geographical area between the Champs-Élysées, Montaigne and George V avenues, in the 8th arrondissement of Paris. This area is renowned for its architecture and culture. Paris's Golden Triangle is an ideal location for offices because it is central and offers excellent access to public transport. What's more, it's a very lively area with lots of restaurants and shops.
While the sector is still mainly favoured by financial and luxury companies, in recent years it has become less attractive to major international law firms, real estate companies and, above all, tech companies, who now prefer the centre of Paris and, above all, the ""Silicon Way"" district. This business district of the capital, bounded by rue du Sentier, boulevard Sébastopol, boulevard Poissonnière and rue de Réaumur in the 2nd arrondissement of Paris, has become a landmark for French Tech and coworking firms.
The Golden Triangle is both a historical and a geographical concept. Initially, it was an area between Concorde and the Champs-Elysées that attracted the wealthiest companies, and as a result generated a lot of real estate pressure with high-quality buildings.
Over the last few years, this geographical area has been shifting in and around Paris as a result of the development of start-ups and tech players: we therefore have a golden triangle that is moving eastwards towards the Sentier. In fact, it's a subjective notion with one or more golden triangles specific to one's activities. Our mission is to find accommodation for the companies that entrust us with a search mandate, and one of the key criteria will be accessibility of that location.
At Factory, depending on the type of user, the expectations of the employees and the business cycles, we'll be looking for the right place and the right district in line with this whole dynamic. We're also going to take into account the project for a calmer Paris, which is increasingly part of our customers' specifications and their choice of location.
