OKKO HOTELS ANNOUNCES FOUR PROJECTS FOR PARIS
PRESS RELEASE
OKKO HOTELS ANNOUNCES
FOUR PROJECTS FOR PARIS
FEBRUARY 2015
2014 proved to be a busy twelve months for the young French hotel chain, as
its first three hotels opened their doors in Nantes, Grenoble and Lyon. Many
customers have already fallen for the charms of the four-star urban hotel concept
created by Olivier Devys, and it has also won over property developers and cities
alike, attracted by this resolutely innovative product that fulfils all the needs of
today’s travellers. The expansion of OKKO HOTELS continues apace and the start
of 2015 holds much promise, with construction work starting on the first OKKO
hotel in the Parisian region, as well as the confirmation of three more projects in
France’s capital.
OKKO HOTELS
WILL REACH THE OUTSKIRTS OF PARIS
IN 2016…

Rueil-Malmaison
On 31st January – in the company of Patrick Ollier, MP and mayor of the commune
of Rueil-Malmaison, and Gérald Azancot, the president of project developer
FIMINCO – Olivier Devys celebrated the first brick being laid at OKKO HOTELS’
newest construction site. The new hotel forms part of the ambitious redevelopment
and modernisation of the RER Mobipôle train station. Located only 10 minutes
from the centre of Paris by public transport, OKKO’s guests will be made to feel
welcome in a 110-room hotel that will feature a first-floor Club area boasting a
wonderful terrace, all the work of designer Patrick Norguet.
This elegant dressed-stone building, which will also house a garden centre, a student
residence and two restaurants, has been designed by the architect Loïc Richalet.
The doors to OKKO’s first hotel in the Parisian region will be open to the
public during the first half of 2016, offering high-quality and contemporary
accommodation at the heart of Rueil-Malmaison’s “garden station”.

…PORTE DE SÈVRES
IN 2017…
A 3D vision of the future OKKO HOTELS
Porte de Sèvres
On the site of the Pullman Paris Rive-Gauche hotel, formerly Sofitel-Porte de Sèvres,
the developer Bouygues Immobilier has undertaken an ambitious project designed
to accommodate the future headquarters of insurance firm SMA, as well as the
future OKKO HOTELS. Jean-Michel Wilmotte is the man behind the architecture
of this 149-bedroom hotel, held within a sculpted building that will effortlessly
blend into the heart of this fast-evolving district. Construction work is soon to get
underway on the hotel, whose doors should be open to the public in 2017. OKKO’s
guests will find that the proximity of the tram service, the Balard metro stop and
the Porte de Versailles make this hotel the ideal stop-off for a business trip.
…THE SURROUNDINGS OF THE MONTPARNASSE
RAILWAY STATION IN 2018…
Perfectly located at only a short walk from the Montparnasse railway station,
OKKO’s second Paris city hotel will open in 2018. The construction permit is
currently being drawn up by the prospective developer, for a project that will fit
in perfectly with a district currently undergoing a contemporary makeover.

…AND THE GARE DE L’EST
IN 2019
The French national railway company SNCF recently signed off on their “Green
Balcony” project for the Gare de l’Est train station in Paris. While doing so, they
announced that OKKO HOTELS had been chosen to install a 170-room hotel
beside the station’s platforms, along a stretch of land leading to the nearby Gare
du Nord. An entirely unique 2,600 m² area of public gardens will be installed on
the roof terrace of this building, owned by the City of Paris and accessible via
walkways from the Rue d’Alsace. This major project, managed by the developer
Spie Batignolles Immobilier, should see the light of day in 2019.
