Valentin Shopping Centre - Besançon (25)

Shopping mall attached to the Carrefour Ecole-Valentin hypermarket in the process of being extended

  • 32 stores
  • 4,100 sqm
  • 550 parking spaces
  • Catchment area of 250,000 residents

The Valentin shopping centre constitutes one of the main retail facilities in “Le Grand Besançon”. It benefits from incredible accessibility to the intersection of the A36, which crosses the catchment area from east to west, and the RN57, which crosses from south-east to north.

The redevelopment of the shopping centre, carried out in conjunction with Carrefour Property which owns the conurbation’s leading food hypermarket, initially (in 2017) concerned the renovation of the inside of the mall and the existing facades in order to create a warm and modern environment. A second phase of works launched in 2018 consists of the redevelopment/extension of the mall coupled with the creation of an open-air car park. In 2020, the centre’s total floor area will have been increased to 6,600 sqm, housing 45 small retail units and 2 mid-size stores.
