Complete break over Maison de Sophia plan
The offer of the Funel plot, which had been proposed to Danone this summer to settle its world research center, implied the end of the building plan for a new Maison de Sophia: it was especially on that wonderful 9 hectares plot the building would have been built. A heavy investment (60 million francs), the Prefecture did not appreciate. The cancellation was pronounced by the Regional Council at the end of last week during a budgetary meeting. The authorization of a 17 million franc program, voted last year as a first stage was cancelled. The amount will remain to the technopole and will be used for land purchases.
