With an eye on future economic growth and the development of land still available in a strategic region, Région Réunion planned to develop an airport business park in partnership with the Chamber of Commerce and Industry. This zone, next to Roland Garros airport and the RN2 main road, would house high-value activities in a fully fledged urban and business center.
The program was diversified and called for the different options chosen by CDE to be checked and audited, especially those linked to export, commercial real-estate and business tourism, three key sectors marked by development difficulties. With this planned extension of the airport’s catchment area, the first step was to open the project up to outside operators and diversify the business activities involved while building a premium positioning. To achieve this, links with aviation and airport functions were strengthened.
