This 24 m high building of 1,400 sqm is by size and design a monumental witness of the industrial past of Saint-Denis. The site, located in the Quartier Pleyel, is directly adjacent to the Olympic site of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic games and it hosts major metropolitan projects such as a future new metro station of the Grand Paris Express.

Innovative scheme, in particular with regard to its ability to highlight the height (24m) of the building without any internal load-bearing structure, as well as the monumentality of the hall and the synergy of the three buildings.
Possible phasing linked to the Olympic Games: short-term planning (before 2023) and long-term planning (after 2024).
RTE (Réseau de Transport d'Électricité, the French transmission system operator).
Plot of land BQ0029 with an area of 1400 sqm: three adjacent buildings including the hall. This plot could be divided into several, so that the land directly concerned by the Call for Projects (the buildings by themselves) could be dissociated from the adjoining land ENEDIS electric setup that should be demolished by 2021). The height of the “hall” building is 24m, which is equivalent to a seven-storey building. The second building has two storeys, and the third one only one.
Plot of land BQ0020 including the foreman’s building and with a total area for the plot of 293 sqm.
Type of transfer intended
As RTE is a public institution, the acquisition of the plot of land is not a prerequisite for the call for projects.
RTE is in favour of selling this property and will be involved at each stage of the call for projects process, first as a stakeholder in drawing up the specifications which will be sent to candidates, and then will be present during the negotiation phases. As the owner of the site, RTE will be part of the final jury to determine the winner of the proposals.
