Who are we?
Founded by Laurent Dumas, Emerige is one of the main players in the real estate sector in Paris and surroundings. It specializes in the development of office and housing buildings as well as in the refurbishment of real estate assets. Since 2014 the company is also established in Spain with building programmes in Barcelona and Madrid.
Over the past twenty-five years, it has built a reputation of excellence by bringing together heritage, art, and innovation, and collaborating with the best architects, designers and artisans.
Emerige has an intuition for great projects. In 2016, it was named winner of “Réinventer Paris” (a competition for innovative urban projects launched by the City of Paris) for its ambitious program “Morland Mixité Capitale” (43,000 square meters in the heart of Paris), which includes an intervention by the artist Olafur Eliasson. It also launched an emblematic housing program with an architectural design inspired by nature, UNIC, in the Batignolles neighborhood (Paris, 17th arrondissement).
The Group and its partner AOG are also developing a major project: a cultural and artistic hub on the upstream end of the Ile Seguin (Boulogne-Billancourt), which, once completed, will be one of the biggest cultural hubs in Europe.
Convinced that art can change everyday life, Emerige is an active patron of culture. The Group supports young French artists, through initiatives such as the Emerige Revelations Grant, and supports artistic and cultural education programmes. It also encourages the presence of art in the city with the acquisition and commissioning of contemporary artworks as part of the “1 immeuble, 1 oeuvre” charter, an initiative it co-founded in 2015 under the aegis of the French Ministry for Culture. Over the past year, it has financed the creation of over forty works of art to be presented in buildings constructed or restored by Emerige.
