Located in the heart of the Lyon business district where Rue Garibaldi meets Cours Lafayette, the Incity Tower is part of an NF HQE initiative that aims to become the first city centre office tower certified "High Environmental Quality" and rubber stamped "Low Consumption Building" in France.

The first phase of deconstruction inside the old UAP tower is now complete and the second so-called "outside deconstruction" phase is underway.

Particular attention is paid to selecting methods and reducing nuisances: it is a "construction with low environmental impact" at the heart of the High Environmental Quality initiative.

Deconstruction will run until July 2012, giving way to construction of the Incity Tower.
