Viaduc Village to Open in Summer – Second Phase 2022 Completed

Groupe Idec Invest, the property investment company of Groupe Idec, recently announced the opening of Viaduc Village, its first outlet project, for summer 2019.

Lionel Mary, Managing Director of Idec Invest, vouched for the architectural success of this village, thanks to Torg’s outlet expertise, leader in its field in the United States.

Next to the Millau Viaduct and strongly anchored in its regional heritage, the village will present a selection of products made in the area, such as leather, gloves, and cutlery, as well as internationally renowned brands.

In addition, sports and leisure brands will reflect the influence of the environment on Viaduc Village, which is located in the heart of the Parc des Grands Causses in the Languedoc-Roussillon Midi-Pyrénées department, a region favored by 30 million tourists and hundreds of thousands of outdoor enthusiasts every year.

The food offer will pay tribute to the gastronomic wealth of this region with two major concepts: one developed in close collaboration with a local chef and the other with a French operator. In total, 40 stores will open for the first phase of the project.

The construction of the second phase will begin once the first phase is completed, with an opening planned for the summer of 2022. It will include about 60 additional stores over an area of more than 16,000 sq m, with a hundred stores in total.
