“Inventing the Greater Paris Metropolis,” finalist at the MIPIM Awards 2020

Launched by the Greater Paris Metropolis in 2016, and with two successful editions under its belt, the “Inventing the Greater Paris Metropolis” contest attracted submissions from 644 teams, with 77 projects selected to redevelop a total of 260 hectares and create almost 20 hectares of green space. The Greater Paris Metropolis has succeeded in generating real momentum behind this scheme, with almost €10 billion in private investment raised to construct 18,000 homes and create 80,500 jobs, of which 61,500 will be permanent posts.

Bringing together architects, developers, promoters, investors, operators, start-ups and more, the great strength of “Inventing the Greater Paris Metropolis” is its dedication to reinventing the way we work and live in the city, combining innovation with ambitious environmental standards. The contest has now entered the operational phase, with building permits issued, construction work in progress and even the inauguration of the first winning projects.

“Inventing the Greater Paris Metropolis” has been shortlisted as a finalist at the MIPIM Awards, selected by an independent, international jury from among 228 applications from 45 countries all over the world.
