Set in an important business hub east of the French capital, the Paris Gare de Lyon centre occupies the fourth to eighth floors of an eight-storey building located just steps away from the railway station. This is an efficient modern building compared to many of the neighbouring tower-block properties, which were built in the 1970s. It looks out over the tree-lined avenue and offers a great strategic location near the first TGV station with links to Marseilles, Lyon and the south of France, as well as excellent metro links. Gare de Lyon is a desirable and dynamic business district. Many large national companies have established their headquarters in the area, including major players in sectors such as financial services, chemicals, rail, digital communications and pharmaceuticals.
