Histoire de Paris

Crédit Foncier de France
Sur des terrains vendus en 1719 par Guillaume Leduc ont été élevés les deux hôtels occupés depuis 1854 et 1858 par le Crèdit foncier. Tannevot les construisit, celui du 15 pour le fermier général Louis-Philippe Des Vieux, ancien directeur de la Compagnie des Indes, celui du 17-19.pour François Castanier, également directeur de la Compagnie des Indes. Autorisé par décret du 28 mars 1852 sous le nom de Banque foncière de Paris, le Crédit foncier de France était à l’origine une société de prêteurs prenant des gages hypothécaires sur les propriétés immobilières de ses emprunteurs.

History of Paris

Credit Loan Bank of France
On land sold in 1719 by Guillaume Leduc, the two hotels occupied since 1854 and 1858 by Crèdit Landaire were built. Tannevot built them, that of the 15th for the farmer general Louis-Philippe Des Vieux, former director of the Compagnie des Indes, that of 17-19 for François Castanier, also director of the Compagnie des Indes. Authorized by decree of March 28, 1852 under the name of Paris Land Bank, the Crédit Foncier de France was originally a company of lenders taking mortgage pledges on the real estate properties of its borrowers.

Its powers were extended in 1860 to loans to municipalities and departments, then to various operations of national interest allocated by the State.
