Major project for the Saint-Etienne metropolis, Steel will open its doors on Wednesday September 16th, 2020 and will offer to its visitors a strong commercial offer, a generous customer experience, large landscaped living and relaxation areas, in compliance with strict health protocols.

Originally scheduled for May 13th, Steel’s opening has been postponed due to the global health crisis over the spread of the Covid-19, which resulted in a total halt in construction and development for more than a month. The Steel’s site started gradually to resume from April 20th  and a controlled ramp-up since then, having been monitored to ensure the safety of the companions at work (there are now 250 of them working on the site for the work of the contracting authority and those of the tenants). This upcoming opening is the result of the effective mobilization of all stakeholders : contracting authority, project management teams, companies, retailers and traders. Benefiting from the experience acquired by Apsys in its other shopping centers (such as Beaugrenelle and Eden in the Paris region, Muse in Metz), the customer path of Steel will be designed to ensure everyone’s safety, thanks to rigorous sanitary measures.

« We, the whole project team, are delighted with the upcoming opening of Steel and we are looking forward meeting all Stéphanois and Ligériens on Wednesday September 16th, to discover the generous living space, welcoming and reassuring that we are preparing for them! » Says Josselin Durand, Director of Steel.
