Paris mulls over building skyscrapers to accommodate banks fleeing Brexit

Paris has ramped up efforts to lure jobs from London as Europe’s leading business hub post-Brexit after announcing a huge investment in its main business district, La Défense.

The French capital hasn’t constructed any buildings that are taller than 100m for more than 40 years, but in a bid to attract financial firms it will now build seven new skyscrapers in La Défense by 2021.

The towers will create 375,000 sq m of new office space as well as new restaurants and co-working areas, Defacto, the organisation which is promoting the development, said on Wednesday.

Marie-Célie Guillaume, chief executive of Defacto, said, “Brexit represents a huge opportunity for Paris.
