The Roguez Valley

An exemplary activity zone is to be developed within the Roguez Valley, ideally situated at the heart of the Eco-Vallée. The goal is to provide the Métropole Nice Côte d’Azur with a new area for industrial and artisanal activity, for both existing local actors and newcomers. Located on the townships of Colomars and Castagniers, it will total some ten companies, representing approximately one hundred jobs. A lot of ambitions are linked to this site, which will set high standards in terms of its sustainable development efforts and the quality of its architecture.
