Massy is one of the Essonne département’s major economic hubs. In 1958, the government gave the green light to a high-rise social housing development – the Massy-Antony Grand Ensemble – followed in the 1970s by the Nouveau Villaine. At the same time, the Champs-Ronds area (now the Atlantis district) began to fill with industrial companies. Under the impetus of the town council, modern Massy is booming again: a TGV (high-speed train) station opened in 1991, while the Vilmorin residential area and the Atlantis mixed residential and business area have recently been developed.
Massy’s cultural offerings are also by no means insignificant. It has the only opera house outside Paris and the Île-de-France region, inaugurated in 1993, and the Paul B Cultural Centre, acclaimed for “Les Primeurs de Massy”, a festival for up-and-coming musicians who have just released their first album. The town also has a wide range of sporting facilities equipped to host high-level competitive events.
