The Paris Haussmann Centre occupies all six floors of an elegant Art Déco property that features a glass-covered interior courtyard, ensuring plenty of natural light close to Boulevard Haussmann. The building has been renovated to incorporate air conditioning. This part of the Madeleine district is known for its architecture.
It is within easy reach of metro and suburban train stations, and near one the city's biggest department stores, Printemps Haussmann. Paris is recognised as the world capital of fashion but its diverse economy is strong in a number of sectors, including aeronautics, automotive manufacturing, IT, chemicals, electronics and food processing. The city also attracts a significant number of research organisations.
