Actimo real estate Lyon

The Lyon metropolitan area brings together 56 municipalities and nearly 1.6 million inhabitants. Its economic, political and cultural influence and brilliance, both nationally and internationally, has continued to grow.

Irrigated by the Rhône and the Saône, which cross the city and form its peninsula, it has become its economic, political and cultural lung.

Indeed, from the Place Bellecour, three main roads emerge, namely the Rue de la République, Rue du Président Herriot and Rue Victor Hugo. They are the vectors of the economic life of the city centre.
In addition to this layout, there is a tangle of streets with often thematic and dynamic offers due to their proximity to these axes.

Moreover, the development of the city, inspired by the metropolis, is extending to its periphery.
In this sense, districts and sites with thematic offers are developing everywhere in the communes of the Lyon metropolis, namely the Confluence, Silk, Part-Dieu, Gerland districts or the Groupama stadium site, which are all dynamic and forward-looking places that organise and support the economic life of Lyon.

The main trade routes

Rue de la République links Place Bellecour and Place de l'Opéra.
This route is considered to be the preferred axis for retailers, with 10 million visits per year. We find 80% of the shops there: Zara, Starbuck, JD Sports, Fnac, Maxi Bazar. Note the presence of the big city centre shops: Printemps and Monoprix.

Rue du Président Eduard Herriot has a high-end offer. The first section of this axis connects Place Bellecour to Place des Jacobins and is considered the luxury axis: Louis Vuitton, Hermes, Rolex, Longchamp, etc. It is introduced into the "Golden Square" of the city.
The second section continues to the Place des Terreaux. It displays a high-end pap offer: El Ganso, Massimo Duti, Boggi, Bexley, Graphity, but also some cafés and restaurants: Grand café des négociants, Perle.

From Place Bellecour, Rue Victor Hugo leads to Perrache station and Place Carnot. It is an exclusively pedestrian street and is bordered by the metro.
It is reputed to be one of the best shopping streets in Lyon. The street is home to cafés, restaurants, shops, services and hotels: MacDonald's, Bagel Corner, Alain Afflelou...
