French term or phrase:boîte
Ok, I have a document about a company's program to expand shopping centres and adjoining land. The term "boîte" comes up twice and I'm not sure what they're talking about here. Office space?
...La Direction des Extensions négociera avec l’aide des équipes Production les accords nécessaires, avant de leur passer le relais pour la phase réalisation des extensions de galeries ou des « boîtes » prévues...
Loisirs et Transactions continuera d’agir en structure légère de développement, intéressée principalement par : les boites et retail parks, voire les pieds d’immeubles.
