PARIS — Interparfums has acquired new Parisian headquarters, located at 10 Rue de Solférino in the 7th arrondissement, from property developer Apsys.
A Left Bank office complex that had comprised a large part of the former Socialist Party headquarters, it spans about 40,000 square feet and is comprised of three buildings connected by two inner courtyards.
The purchase price of 125 million euros includes the site’s complete renovation and is financed by a 10-year, 120 million euro bank loan benefiting from today’s interest rates.
“This purchase is an exceptional opportunity,” Philippe Benacin and Jean Madar, cofounders of the Interparfums Group, said in a joint statement.
“This new headquarters will make it possible in spring 2022 to house all the teams at a single site, contribute to a new, more flexible and convivial work organization, and provide a showcase of excellence for all the company’s partners,” Interparfums SA, the French subsidiary of Interparfums Inc., said in the statement.
Interparfums SA’s longstanding headquarters in Paris has been on the Right Bank, at 4 Rond-Point des Champs-Élysées, while its recently acquired Rochas fashion label’s headquarters stands across the street, at 1 Rond-Point des Champs-Élysées.
