“Amarrage”, 206 housing units, including 180 student apartments, sold to Gecina at the heart of the Euroméditerranée project
Firmly anchored between Marseille’s historic center and the Euroméditerranée sector, the “Amarrage” program, developed jointly by Pitch Promotion and Constructa, covers a total of 6,736 sq.m and includes a next-generation student residence with 180 studios and 26 high-end first-time buyer apartments, already delivered in March 2017, as well as 102 underground parking spaces on two levels.
Following on from the Vieux-Port sector, the real estate complex is positioned at the heart of one of the largest urban redevelopment operations currently underway in Europe, whose list of achievements already includes the Regards de Provence Museum, the Museum of European and Mediterranean Civilizations (MUCEM), the Villa Méditerranée and the Voûtes de la Major. Owned by Gecina, the “Campuséa Marseille La Major” student residence marks the completion of the “Amarrage” program’s first high-end phase.
Overview from the Amarrage program
“Campuséa La Major”, a next-generation student residence on Marseille’s harbor-front
Designed by the architects Poissonnier Ferran, this next-generation student residence, with 180 studios, offers expansive volumes and recreates a typically Marseille living environment, just a short walk from all the city’s conveniences: shops, services, schools, leisure and sports facilities, etc.
Open since August 2017, this residence is notably home to students from one of the campuses of KEDGE, the leading business school located nearby. The residence combines high-quality functional accommodation with a vibrant living environment, offering a selection of communal areas to meet up, including a lounge and fitness room, as well as a laundry room and a range of on-demand services. These amenities are particularly popular with international students, who make up 70% of the residence’s customers.
Lastly, “Campuséa La Major” also offers high environmental and energy efficiency performance ratings and is Habitat & Environnement and Effinergie + certified.
