Porte de Montreuil located on the eastern belt of Paris extends over 35 ha with 60,000 sqm for construction. The project is part of the overall strategy to upgrade the Gates of Paris and to transform them into real metropolitan squares of the Greater Paris. In addition to the environmental excellence, the City of Paris expects proposals to reinforce the connections between Paris et Montreuil, improve public spaces and develop new uses.
As part of the strategy aimed at transforming the gateways to the city into Greater Paris metropolitan areas, the ambition of this urban development project is to create links between Paris and its neighbouring cities.
The objective of the City of Paris and its partners is to make Porte de Montreuil a pilot district for environmental excellence and a laboratory of the new economy. The future “square” and its surrounding buildings should showcase the new ways of linking Paris and its neighbours. The total buildable area assigned to the perimeter concerned for project tenders is estimated at 60,000 m2.
Applicants will be allowed a high degree of flexibility as regards programming. Since the site is located within the Arc de l’Innovation area, they should pay special attention to innovation in the field of economy.
