Hammerson's Bercy 2, Charenton-le-Pont (You should have seen Bercy 1. Rubbish.)

"Hammerson France manages 10 regional shopping centres with a dominant presence in their catchment area and one of the largest retail parks in the south of the Paris region. Each year, our shopping centres attract more than 88 million visitors."

"This exceptional site at the eastern gateway to Paris benefits from a visibility second to none, facing the Boulevard Périphérique, the Paris ring road and the A4 motorway." [So come by car.]

Evening Standard:
"We must learn from France, not scorn it"

"Far from being a hopeless mess, French economic performance is significantly superior to that of the UK. If, for example, you think the ultimate test of economic efficiency is productivity — measured as the value added by one employee working for one hour — the French economy is significantly more efficient than ours.

"... Our Government has been too cowed by the markets and too blinded by ideology to seize the moment to build anything — and yet it wonders why our export performance is poor and we struggle to compete internationally.

"We need to remember that free-market liberalism is not a universal truth — however much bankers pocketing their bonuses might like to pretend otherwise. The blind embrace of its principles is a relatively recent phenomenon."
