Redevelopment of the Matabiau district, major projects on the horizon

With its station, its proximity to the town centre and its direct access to the airport, the metro, buses and tramway, the Matabiau business district aims to become the heart of the Toulouse economy by 2024!

To do this, a large-scale urban development project run by Toulouse Euro Sud Ouest (TESO), will be implemented in several phases. To make this business district attractive, three main objectives have been set:

◾Modernise Matabiau station

◾Develop the surrounding districts and extend downtown Toulouse

◾Build about 300,000 m² of offices, 2,000 new homes and 50,000 m² of shops

 

Matabiau station extension

Matabiau station will naturally be the heart of this new district, which will become a multimodal interchange hub, between the railway lines, metro line A and the future 3rd metro line.


The Occitanie tower, the new symbol of the project

The Occitanie tower project proposes 40 floors covering a total surface area of 30,000 m², including 11,000 m² of offices, 100 to 120 homes, a Hilton hotel and a panoramic restaurant-bar. For the time being, project delivery is scheduled for 2021.
