Lyon's first post office building, the beautiful Art Deco building at 10 place Antonin-Poncet already housed all the postal entities on the same site, from the sorting centre to the departmental management. With its stone facades, sash windows and bas-reliefs on the history of the city, it has been designated as a 20th century heritage building. Built between 1935 and 1938 by the architect Michel Roux-Spitz, winner of the Grand Prix de Rome, this innovative building is 142 metres long, 100 metres wide, 12 metres deep and has 4 to 5 storeys.
Built around a courtyard and the distribution centre, its renovation by CALQ in an occupied site now includes a "Village la Poste". The creation of a patio and planted areas on the roof has made it possible to reintegrate breathing spaces into this mineral building. In this spacious and connected space, the post office, sorting centre, multi-service business centre, coworking area, RIE space with 500 seats, pick-up station, road test preparation screen and housing centre are all dedicated spaces in a building that has been revived while respecting its heritage history.
