The lack of business premises is still a problem in Sophia Antipolis, particularly for offices in business centers.

Thus, in the Green Side business center, they offered me 11 m2 for 6.000 francs before tax per month ! The other business centers of Sophia are more reasonable (around 4.000 francs for about 15 m2 in H.Q at the Espaces of Sophia or in A.B.S. at the Algorythmes). But these centers are full.
