Historic building a stone’s throw from Paris Halles area, the Poste du Louvre, opens this Monday January 10, 2022. In addition to the famous post office that is to open next week this 5-story place now provides a shopping mall, social housings, a 5-star hotel, a restaurant, a rooftop bar, and a plant-filled terrace.

The Poste du Louvre – a historic and iconic venue that used to be an office to send packages and letters at anytime of the day or night – unveils a new face and opens its doors again. Genuine new place of life, this building has it all to delight Parisians and tourists. As a matter of fact, in addition to the historic post office – back from January 17 – the place now unveils stores, social housings, a daycare, offices, and services, and a hotel that opened in October with restaurant and rooftop bar.

While waiting for the opening of the post next week, the complex is inaugurated this Monday January 10, 2022, in the afternoon by Minister of the Economy Bruno Le Maire, Paris mayor Anne Hidalgo and center mayor Ariel Weil.

The Poste du Louvre is set in the heart of Paris, right by the Châtelet-les-Halles railway station, a stone’s throw from the Canopée des Halles, the famous Bourse du Commerce and the Samaritaine.

Built in 1886 by architect Julien Guadet for the needs of the post office, this remarkable venue – because of its monumental stone cover and metallic framework displaying uncommon dimensions – reports about 32,000sqm surface. Closed in 2016, the La Poste group and real estate subsidiary Poste Immo – project owner and owner of the site – have launched major renovations to modernize the place and turn it into a genuine place open to all.

Architect Dominique Perrault has been entrusted with the creation of the architectural project after a European consultation. He was asked to keep the original concept but to add a modern touch.

The Poste du Louvre now opens to all with major highlights. The place, accessible through 5 entrances, giving access to the main and big patio. On the ground floor, a genuine shopping mall expects you with 13 stores. The place also plans many entertainments and experiences in art, culinary, sports, and technologies.

In addition to social housings, the place gathers a five-star hotel that opened recently. The hotel has kept the building’s 19th century architecture, at least on the ground floor. For once you went on the lift and went up, Madame Rêve, set on the fourth and fifth floors, takes guests to the 21st century. Including 82 bedrooms and suites, providing different views on the capital city, half of them enjoying a balcony, Madame Rêve also enjoys a cocktail bar and two restaurants. One serving Mediterranean-inspired menu, the other a panoramic restaurant with unobstructed views, called La Plume, and inspired by Japan.
