A fabulous urban adventure
Val d’Europe is an urban adventure born from an unprecedented public-private partnership, creating an environment on a human scale. The streets and squares have been designed as living spaces and not simply as transit areas. This city at the heart of Europe, born in 1987, has constantly expanded, always placing the human aspects at the centre of its development.
Tomorrow is already here
The additional investment of €8b – including €1.8b for Villages Nature – will take Val d’Europe to a new dimension. 70,000 additional direct jobs are expected.
