A hyper-connected destination


Designed by the architecture firm Cro&Co with the support of URW’s Concept Studio, work began on the extension in 2020, capitalising on the construction of the new transport hub under the CNIT building. The extension of RER E train line to the west of the Paris region makes Westfield CNIT another gateway to the La Défense district, with almost 70,000 commuters a day expected to pass through the station.

"The extension of Westfield CNIT illustrates the Group's strategy of adapting to urban infrastructure and increasing the density of our assets without land artificialisation," said Bruno Donjon de Saint Martin, Chief Operating Officer Southern Europe for URW. "The extension of RER E into the heart of the first business district in Europe is an expression of the dynamism of La Défense. URW is supporting the development of this area by reinforcing the offer in a hyper-connected asset that already boasts an unrivalled mix, and by contributing to the area's environmental transition."


Over 90% of visitors to Westfield CNIT today use sustainable modes of transport. This percentage is now set to increase thanks to the site's connection to more than 28 public transport lines.


In step with URW's "Better Places" sustainability roadmap, the project has received BREEAM In-Use "Excellent" certification. Thanks to its architecture, the natural thermal regulation of the subterranean space guarantees the comfort of visitors without the need for heating or air conditioning. The extension project also makes a positive contribution to the economy of the local area with the creation of more than 300 jobs.
