Brucity was designed by an association of architects comprising the Atelier Bruno Albert, Archi+I and Pierre Lallemand. It is being built on a site previously occupied by Parking 58.
The building covers 37,200 m² above ground (of which ca.33,500 m² to be let) over 9 levels. It will play host to some forty counters intended to welcome the population and will become the new working environment for 1900 municipal civil servants.
The 4-level basement (22,500 m²) will comprise 109 parking places reserved for the City, a bike parking facility with 176 places, a public parking facility with 450 places run by Interparking, as well as 1500 m² intended for archives.
The preparation works and the construction proper have started in January 2017 and will cose in June 2022. The public administration will open its doors in the first trimester of 2023.
A discussion on the overall design has been conducted since the beginning in order to reduce to the maximum the environmental footprint and operating charges of this new building which will bear the “BREEAM VERY GOOD” label. The architecture of the building is in line with the concept of sustainable development.
