De la rente immobilière à la finance : la Société de la rue Impériale (Lyon 1854-2004)

Abstract : The Société de la Rue Impériale (SRI) is the oldest real estate company in France. With more than 150 years of estate management of « haussmannian » buildings situated in the main street of Lyon, it had a crucial role among real estate companies. From its beginning (1854) to its end (2007), the SRI has constantly placed estate management in the center of its activities. This long run activity contrasts with the ephemeral duration of other real estate companies in the XIXth century. Throughout its existence, the holding of exceptional real estate assets has ensured a rent on which it has based its expansion. It is progressively shifting to a finance-led model in the late 1960s, after a major takeover by the Lazard bank. The purchase of the SRI by Abou Dhabi's sovereign fund completes the financialisation process of this prestigious piece of real estate. Based on the archives of the Company, the history of the SRI allows to trace back transformations of urban spaces in the long term and to better understand interactions between financial capital and the production of the city. This book constitutes an original approach to the economic and urban development.
