Which are Lyon's business districts ?

The Part Dieu : the second most important tertiary centre, after la defense

La Part Dieu is the second largest business district in France after La Defense. In its large towers, typical of Lyon 3, are the offices of various companies: La Tour Part-Dieu also nicknamed le Crayon because of its shape (meaning the pencil” ; with its Radisson hotel and the famous Celest restaurant), the Swiss Life Tower, the Incity Tower, the Tour EDF, the Oxygene tower and the To-Lyon tower.

Access to workplaces is facilitated by the Part Dieu station (TGV, metro, bus and tram lines) and the Rhone Express (which provides direct and rapid transport from Lyon-Saint Exupery Airport).

Whether it is for a temporary / seasonal business stay of a few nights or weeks, or for a long-term furnished rental of several months, many professionals decide to book Urban Sejour’s self-catering apartments in this area.

Here are some examples of our apartments near Part Dieu:

Gerland : Lyon’s second business district, specialized in the health and research industries.

Many companies have their premises in Lyon near the Stade de Gerland / Halle Tony Garnier: Boehringer Ingelheim, Inserm, GREBE (Groupe de Recherche et d’Etude Biologie et Environnement); or even the laboratories of Merial, Sanofi Pasteur …

Despite its many offices, Gerland remains a pleasant district with green spaces and a variety of places to eat.

The Lyon 7 district is also convenient for accessing businesses south of Lyon (eg Renault in Venissieux).

Other developing business districts : The Carre de Soie, the Cite internationale…

The district of Lyon 6 brings together many diverse and varied businesses. There are entrepreneurs, travel agencies, training organizations, design, construction, communication, personal service, real estate companies …

More particularly, at the Cite Internationale, there are coworking spaces, consulting companies, IT / software agencies … surrounded by a beautiful setting with the Parc de la Tete d’Or a stone’s throw away, and the Museum of Contemporary art.

Some of the tenants who book temporary apartments (mostly for long-term stays) in Lyon 6 through Urban Sejour are indeed looking for proximity to a workplace at Interpol / la Cite Internationale.

However, many professionals (teleworking or not) and families from Lyon wish to spend their stay in Lyon 6 because it is a relatively quiet area (residential, family-friendly), and lively at the same time (thanks to its proximity to the Parc de la Tete d’Or, with cultural events, a friendly atmosphere, many small shops and cafes…).
