Europa City is definitely car-centric, as it seems. Very sad.

LVMH to Mix Luxury and Tourism in Paris



Luxury-goods giant LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton MC.FR -1.62% has a plan to mix class and mass tourism in the heart of Paris.

Eight years after concerns about fire safety forced LVMH to close its department store La Samaritaine, the retailer is set to break ground on a €460 million ($598.4 million) redevelopment of the iconic property.

Plans for the 860,000-square-foot complex, which haven't yet been announced, illustrate how retailers are redrafting their strategies to accommodate a major increase in tourists from emerging markets.

The building will mix different segments of consumers in an unprecedented way in Paris. La Samaritaine is set to house LVMH's first five-star Cheval Blanc hotel in the capital. But the ultraluxury hotel will be alongside LVMH's first DFS duty-free emporium in Europe, which relies largely on budget Chinese travelers, according to people close to the project.

LVMH is plotting how to allocate facilities to accommodate the diverse clientele, such as avoiding chauffeured sedans being caught in tour-bus traffic. LVMH declined to comment.

The arrival of DFS on LVMH's home turf comes as retailers throughout Europe increasingly are targeting tourists from emerging markets—mostly Chinese, but also Brazilians and Russians. Pierre Raynal, head of the retail division at real-estate firm Cushman & Wakefield in France, says the number of Chinese tourists visiting France is expected to hit eight million a year by 2020, up from the current one million.

In another project primarily targeting tourists, LVMH rival Cie. Financière Richemont, CFR.VX -1.76% owner of brands such as Cartier and Vacheron Constantin, has bankrolled a giant new watch store in Paris that is due to open this month, operated by Swiss chain Bucherer.

The goal is to drain some of the crowds away from Paris's jam-packed department stores Galeries Lafayette and Printemps. Luxury brands that are present in the department stores are concerned that the big retailers can't provide the right kind of service and attention to busloads of tourists.

"It's essential to welcome tourism shopping in Paris, not just for the luxury industry but for the entire French economy," Mr. Raynal says.

The long-delayed renovation of La Samaritaine, which closed in 2005, is scheduled to begin as soon as this month and to be completed by 2016. On a recent day, hard-hat construction workers were inspecting the Art Deco and Belle Epoque buildings, which are classified as historical monuments.

The renovation could be delayed further—or possibly derailed—by a complaint filed by several associations of local residents against the construction permit. The associations are opposed to the design of one of the buildings with an undulating glass facade they dubbed "the shower curtain."

LVMH has long had a real-estate strategy of bunching its brands, signing leases for several of its fashion labels on the same street, for instance. La Samaritaine will be a showcase for its luxury brands in LVMH's hometown, but adding DFS is an unusual step.

DFS, which sells clothing, accessories and beauty products from brands such as Burberry, Chanel and LVMH's own Louis Vuitton, has made a business of following in the footsteps of Asian tourism. The Chinese already are DFS's top clientele.

Until now, DFS stores have been centered in the Pacific, in such destinations as Macao, Hong Kong and Singapore. The farthest-flung outposts have been in Abu Dhabi and in U.S. airports such as New York's John F. Kennedy International Airport.

La Samaritaine, which originally opened in 1869, is around the corner from the Louvre and at the heart of the tourist circuit. The store has attracted locals in the past with its "You find everything at La Samaritaine" slogan.

But tourism spending in the area is increasing. Tourists now account for 30% of purchases along the Rue de Rivoli, which borders one side of the La Samaritaine complex, compared with 10% five years ago, according to Mr. Raynal.

Nearly 300,000 square feet of space in the La Samaritaine project is earmarked for retail shops, according to public documents with details of LVMH's plans, including two midsize stores and one department store. DFS and Louis Vuitton will be the two midsize stores, according to people close to the plans.

Plans for the renovation also include a mix of retail, office, residential and hotel space. About a 10th of the space will be given over to new social housing and a day care center—facilities that some say helped LVMH win construction approval from the city.

DFS is hoping to offer special entrances that can fit the tour buses that many Chinese visitors travel in, as well as multilingual staff and tax-free cash registers—all elements that will allow it to compete against Paris's existing department stores.

But the tourists spending at DFS aren't likely to be the same ones staying in the approximately 90 suites of the Cheval Blanc. The luxury hotel will occupy the part of the La Samaritaine complex overlooking the river, with a view of the Eiffel Tower.

Though the big shopping budgets of many Chinese tourists are sustaining the growth of the luxury-goods industry, the bus tours that escort most middle-class Chinese tourists in Europe usually book them into budget motels on the outskirts of Paris.

Another upper-class mall for Paris : Le Madeleine, Les Trois-Quartiers

Rehabilitation of the building Les Trois-Quartiers, in which C&A will install his flagship for Europe.

Quote:


Les Trois-Quartiers, which vivotaient Place de la Madeleine, will give way to spring a commercial building smarter, more sensual and more modern.

Work started there a little over a year. And do not be completed before the end of spring. I must say that the site was ambitious: to restore an aging building located at the corner of Duphot and boulevard de la Madeleine, an object of beauty and function more in line with its prestigious location. "It was a real challenge to redeem, in June 2009, this building mixing desks and a shopping arcade unattractive," says Jean-Philippe Olgiati, Director MGPA France, who undertook the complete renovation, interior and exterior, site .
Restore its luster but the building without close shops and offices, was not an easy task. "It took us surround ourselves with a team of outstanding professionals," says Jean-Philippe Olgiati. The architects and Sébastien Laurent Goudchaux Segers, who proposed to reclaim the history of this heritage building, give it back minerality and dressed again light the front of Carrara marble, has immediately caught the attention. "The choice of marble has become very fast, as it provides a lasting response to both traditional and cosmetic explains Sébastien Segers. It can be carved and allow us to tailor-made. We did not want prêt-à-porter, but a new dress tailored specifically for this building. "



Laurent Goudchaux, expert of the "Rehab" major sites (site ultra-complex the Court of Auditors, it is also him), highlights the difficulty of such rehabilitation on a busy site. "There is a side Rubik's cube, it treats spaces one after the other, by refining a pillar, then compensating moving stairs. And then we had to give light and horizontality reinstalling windows and windows 8 meters long. "An integral transformation of the technical façade restores its elegance, modernity and many a lot of sensuality. We must let his hand run on the marble façade matte but slightly polished to understand the attraction that will surely cause the building and dressed. What attract customers to the three stores that survive the disappearance of the Three Areas.
Because in these reinvented spaces, there will be over 13 shops that were there before work. Only three brands will be present at the reopening in spring: C & A will occupy 7000 square meters distributed between the ground floor and 1st floor.

A wooden totem plant

Marionnaud will be moved into a new space of 380 sqm overlooking the street Duphot while Decathlon, which remained open throughout the work, benefit from the same area in the basement, but with a redesigned store and benefiting from new access more visible.
Offices do not lose the changes. To offer a lobby worthy of their position at the entrance of the grand boulevards overlooking the Church of the Madeleine, the designer Ora-ïto was tasked with designing a separate lobby shops. It has also been moved about 16 meters to be more visible and fully dedicated to his reception function. "I wanted a complete consistency of the hall with the exterior designed by Laurent Goudchaux and Sebastien Segers, says the designer. It should be seen as an extension, an opening on the street that envelope, that draws the visitor. "Standing in the hall, a wooden totem plant, sheltering in its trunk a light system which makes the object almost alive, is spread over 7 meters in height. Before hitting a ceiling mirror. The game of reflection gives the impression that the trunk still stands as to accompany the stairs and almost holographic information scrolls on the wall temperature, the CAC 40 results, risks bottling ... What restore all his standing at that house, including offices Chanel.

Bucherer to Open “World’s Largest Jewellery and Watch Store” in Paris



Historical Swiss jewellery brand Bucherer is to open a new shop in Paris billed as the world’s largest store dedicated to watches and jewellery.

Located at 12 Boulevard des Capucines in the 9th Arrondisment of Paris, one of the city’s most prestigious shopping districts, the 2,200 square metre store will be spread over 3 floors and will host some of the world’s most iconic watch and jewellery brands.

Amongst the famous names taking up residence in the store will be Rolex, Tudor, Longines, Blancpain, Jaeger-LeCoultre, Vacheron Constantine, Baume & Mercier, Chopard, Girard-Perregaux, IWC , Montblanc, Panerai, Piaget, Roger Dubuis, Van Cleef & Arpels and Zenith.

The store’s lower ground floor will be given over to more contemporary brands, such as B SWISS, Mido, Oris, Rado and Tissot.

In addition to the brands on display, the store will also be home to a watchmaking workshop, where artisans trained in Bucherer traditions will be available for repairs and adjustments such as polishing, waterproofing and resizing.

Number 12 Boulevard des Capucines has a long and illustrious history, having been the former site of the Old England store where for generations high society from both Paris and further afield came to purchase their cashmere knitwear.

The store will be arranged in a figure eight – a reference to Bucherer’s birth date of 1888.

Boasting 15 boutiques in Switzerland, 8 in Germany and 1 in Austria, Bucherer has grown to become Europe's largest retailer of watches and jewellery.
