Marseille and Paris seek XXL development bids

The role of housing as a sort of lynchpin to urban regeneration is evident in large-scale developments across France, and some ambitious projects were on show at MIPIM 2015.

Nowhere more ambitious than Marseille, where 37 ha of former industrial and maritime space in the city’s Arenc sector will be redeveloped over the next three years into 1,800 homes.

The project is led by town planners Yves Lion and François Kern, with urban landscape architect Guerric Péré – in other words, the same team behind the latest addition to the 20-year-old Euroméditerranée waterfront development in Marseille. Euroméditerranée won the Best Urban Regeneration Project category at this year’s MIPIM Awards.

Elsewhere in Marseille is a development to deliver a new high-rise building, La Marseillaise, designed by Jean Nouvel, and the Ilot Allar block, a 58,000 sq m mixed-use scheme that will include the new headquarters of EDF as well as office, retail and yet more housing.

Residential also figures prominently for Plaine de France EPA, the government-founded urban planning agency representing the area of north-east Paris around Charles de Gaulle Airport.

The agency was at MIPIM to promote three major developments designed to boost the area’s long term economic health and which will represent billions of euros of investment.

Top of the list is the Louvres & Puiseux eco-neighborhood. Prospective developers heard how this neighbourhood will be the biggest housing project in the north east district of the capital and will provide 3,300 dwellings over the next decade or so. Today the two component towns, Louvres and Puiseux, have a combined population of 10,000 but this will double by 2028.

“It is a very important project,” said Plaine de France EPA’s chief executive Damien Robert, who explained that there are 90,000 employees at the airport but accommodation is hard to find within a reasonable radius.

Such housing shortages have become the major real estate challenges for many European cities. But the supply/demand imbalance also partly explains why many institutional investors are increasing their allocations to residential and why some major property companies are willing to move up the risk curve and once again tackle large-scale development, including new housing.

Delegates at MIPIM heard how the Dutch residential sector is attracting record amounts of capital and how residential features prominently in a series of bold development projects in Turkey. They also learned a little more about Unibail-Rodamco’s new development agreement with the City of Hamburg to undertake Uberseequartier, the latest phase of HafenCity, which is Europe’s biggest inner city regeneration project.

The projects in Marseille and Paris may not match the scale of HafenCity – which pre-dates the global financial crisis and is surely Europe’s longest-running development – but they are all emblematic of renewed appetite for urban regeneration, and with it the need for more housing.

    In short, think of the essay as a chance to challenge yourself and to contribute to the on-going conversation among scholars about the subject under discussion.

    There are certainly a lot of details like that to take into consideration. That is a great point to bring up. I offer the thoughts above as general inspiration but clearly there are questions like the one you bring up where the most important thing will be working in honest good faith. I don?t know if best practices have emerged around things like that, but I am sure that your job is clearly identified as a fair game.

    She flicked off the lights and pushed him against the wall. A frame fell face down on the floor and shattered next to them. She didn’t allow him to take notice. She bit at his bottom lip, tugging his face, commanding him to follow her lead as she walked backwards down the hallway, deeper into the darkness, her darkness. And he, submitting to her bestial strength, simply weaved his fingers into the rust of her hair and bowed to her dominion. Like a lowly, unassuming insect, captivated by her hellfire glow.

    Halfway down the hall, she slammed him back first into the wall again, harder than before — no frames there that time. She clawed at his chest under his shirt as she ate his kiss once more and bit down his neck; the groans he breathed out into the obscurity flinched sharply as her fangs grew less and less forgiving.

    His buckle caught the flash of lamplight seeping in from somewhere outside as she tugged at the leather strap of his belt. She ran her fingers up and back down the front of his chest, back down to his waist, and unclasped his belt, plucking it from the loops with a single sliding pull. Feverishly, she tore his pants open and moved them, along with his boxers, down just enough to reveal his smug erection. With both palms on his board-firm chest, she smirked at him, kissed him once more, a little softer than before, and squatted down before him.
