A new vision of Paris: from Grand Paris to the future metropolis, by Nathalie Molho

real estate project for GRAND PARIS

Nicolas Sarkozy, then President of the Republic, initiates the project of Greater Paris,in 2008. Ten years later, this protean project is progressing, shaking up several domains: transport, urban planning, governance, carrying hopes and uncertainties Projects abound through several institutional frameworks such as the urban project "INVENTONS LA METROPOLE" or the Greater PARIS EXPRESS, which plans the construction of 200 km of additional metro tracks, 90% of which underground, which amounts to doubling the current
length subway.

Grand Paris future project

The goal is to harmonize Paris and its surroundings thanks to an urban policy conceived on the scale of an agglomeration and not only from the only Paris Intra Muros In term of inhabitant, Paris Intra Muros has a population of 2, 2 million inhabitants, far behind the largest cities in the world such as Beijing in China that exceed 20 million inhabitants. London, which has 8.6 million in the GREATER LONDON, was created as an administrative unit in 1965, encompassing the heart of LONDON with 3.2 million inhabitants. Paris and its future metropolis will have 7 million inhabitants

All the lines of the Grand Paris Express must enter into service in 2030, but the opening of the lines will be progressive from 2024. The line 15 will make a loop between the 3 departments of the small crown, the 16 will have to allow a better insertion of the North East, the 14 and 17 will reach the airports of Roissy and Orly, while the 18 will open up the technological hub of the Saclay plateau, all for a budget of more than 38 billion (which has already been reviewed at the increased several times) all using 65,500 people for 7 years

The real estate showcase of Greater Paris :

Urbanism through major architectural projects, whose investments are sometimes private, are one of the assets of the dynamics of the project: chosen by the mayors, the names of the 51 winners of the international call for projects "INVENTONS LA METROPOLE" have been unveiled last year
Near the new stations of the big Paris express will be on 55 sites of new housing, offices, trade, zones of leisures, green spaces, sports sites as well as cultural places

GRAND PARIS aims to be green

While some denounce concreting and its effects on the environment, others focus on the 8
hectares devoted to urban agriculture in Morangis.
A total of 27,400 inhabitants will be housed in 14,290 new housing units

New districts for new lifestyles
"The projects, which represent 7.2 billion euros of private investment, will benefit hundreds of thousands of inhabitants of Greater Paris The bet of a metropolis with international
influence is won! "

As Michèle Warnet points out in Les Echos,"torn between two opposing forces, the future of 
Greater Paris is yet to be written between dependence on the capital  and its necessary 
freedom to assert its own strengths, attract and create value. This peripheral area, which 
offers a bucolic and urban juxtaposition, could offer the oxygen that is lacking in congested 
Paris, with a density of close to 21,000 inhabitants per km² - the highest of Western cities, far
 ahead of New York and London. Improving mobility and enhancing attractiveness between
 the capital and its suburbs: "Greater Paris will be successful if it works both ways" 
summarizes Olivier Klein, Mayor of Clichy Sous-Bois
