Our three key goals
French Tech Totem: the Halle’s predecessor
Just a few steps from the Saint Roch train station and the city’s central Place de la Comédie, French Tech colors fly high over Montpellier’s former City Hall. The building now hosts companies on four floors. The ground floor is devoted to meetings, co-working, and French Tech activities. Starting in 2020, the French Tech Halle, a 12,000 sq. meter complex serving as the emblematic and unifying feature of the new Cambacérès district, will stand across from the new Montpellier Sud de France train station. The building will be a melting pot for innovation in the heart of a business park filled with startups, small- and medium-sized companies, and major groups.
Complementing the French Tech Halle, two schools will set up in the district: a school for digital studies (5,000 sq. meters / 1,000 students), and Montpellier Business School (25,000 sq. meters / 3,000 students).
