Nice's Old Port, a historical gem of the Mediterranean city, is about to undergo a major transformation thanks to an exciting new real estate development. Located at 10-12 Quai Papacino, this real estate initiative, known as "Le Florian" is part of the effort to breathe new life into this iconic location in the heart of Nice while preserving its authentic charm.
The complex was originally designed by architect Charles Marra in 1975. It spans multiple levels, including an underground area housing parking spaces and cellars, a ground floor, six straight floors, and a seventh-floor penthouse. Access to the different parts is provided through a main entrance housing two staircases and two elevators serving all floors.
After the completion of renovations, the real estate complex will consist of 38 apartments spread from the first to the seventh floor, three commercial spaces on the ground floor, an office space on the first floor, as well as 69 indoor and outdoor parking spots. Delivery is scheduled for the summer of 2024.

For lovers of sustainable mobility, a bike path is located in front of the real estate development. It runs along the coast, providing easy and quick access to the city center. This initiative aligns with Nice's overall goal to promote an active and environmentally friendly lifestyle.
