THE GENERAL POST OFFICE

A PLACE FULL OF HISTORY

 

The General Post Office is the focal point of the Place Wilson.

Neo-Classical in style, it imposes its noble image, and boasts its rich past.

 

The architects, Annibale Carlo and Horace Grassi, have masterfully recreated the rigour, order and symmetry inherited from French Classicism. The Italian influence is felt in the introduction of more liberal patterns and forms: wreaths, scrolls, vases, balustrades and statues that soften and purify this magnificent building.

 

In the shade of the plane trees that line the Place Wilson, the exterior of this building immerses us in the Belle Époque. And you start to await the arrival of the next carriage, expecting an elegant lady to alight, parasol in hand.

Wilson Plaza

DYNAMISM, MODERNITY, PRESTIGE

 

The Wilson Plaza combines past, present and future, and blends perfectly into all ages. It combines historical roots, contemporary resorts and visionary urban planning.

 

Just like the Belle Époque, the Wilson Plaza dances to a three step waltz.

Its location makes everyday life easier, thanks to the post office located on the ground floor and the local shops nearby, all of which are opportunities for friendly encounters and interaction.

 

Its role in economic life, through the creation of modern and prestigious offices, is perfectly suited to the requirements of modern business.

 

Its “palace spirit” is enhanced by its rooftop villas and exceptional apartments, fully in keeping with the illustrious Negresco, Régina, and Winter Palace.
