Office rental at Nantes, a complete offer catering for every requirement
Theme or general spaces
At Nantes and in the outlying areas, entrepreneurs can lease an office in spaces dedicated to digital like the Hub Créatic (photo opposite) or La Cantine, to the social and solidarity economy, the Solilab, or to the field of health and wellness at the Creative Care Factory.
Other spaces are more general: the business incubators of the Créatic network and most of the business centres on the outskirts of Nantes are equipped to host all types of activity.
Internationally oriented office spaces
Two business centres, in particular, have an international outlook: the Nantes St-Nazaire CCI business centre and the Nuage B business centre, also located at Montreal in Canada.
Unconventional business spaces
Entrepreneurs wanting to lease an office in an attractive space will be delighted with the Petite Serre, a business house in the city centre adjacent to the Botanical Gardens or the Baya Axess, a business centre set up in a former historic town house.
Another unconventional office space located on the Nantes Ouest outskirts, the Buroo Espace business centre allows companies to benefit from the tax advantages of the Urban Free Trade Zone (exoneration of taxes and social contributions) under certain conditions.

On the Île de Nantes, the district of creative and cultural industries
New pole of attraction for the metropolis, Île de Nantes is an extension of the historical centre. A dynamic area where people live and work, it is at the heart of an urban project aimed at increasing the offer to 10 000 dwellings (700 000 m2) and 450 000 m2 of services and offices by 2030. Île de Nantes hosts in particular the Creative Arts District – including the famous Machines de l’Île and the Eléphant – with spaces dedicated to the creative and cultural industries, such as the Karting and the Centrale, which attract startups. The renovated Alstom Halls will soon house a business development centre and the Cantine Numérique alongside a university centre, the School of Fine Arts and the School of Design.
Three business centres propose offices for rent on the Île de Nantes: ABG+, Nuage B and BURO Club Nantes Beaulieu.
