A NEW HALL FOR BORDEAUX STATION
The brand-new Hall 3 of Bordeaux Saint-Jean station will be unveiled to the inhabitants of Bordeaux and users of the station from 11am on Friday 28 April 2017. The new building, designed by AREP in line with the renovation of the historic building, features specially designed furniture made of red leather, timber and corrugated iron.
The new building is designed to accommodate 2,500m² of halls and circulations, 1,800m² of services and retail outlets, 860 parking spaces and 370 secure bike racks. It will also accommodate 30% of the passenger flow, thus responding to the expected increase in passenger numbers due to the opening of the Sud Europe Atlantique high-speed rail line in July 2017. From this point forward, Bordeaux will be only two hours and four minutes away from Paris (instead of the current three hours and fifteen minutes).
The project was another opportunity for AREP Group to provide a wide range of services, such as design, engineering, programming, project management, and follow-up of the works.
