A question for all the Parisians.

Given that two of the largest public spaces downtown have been (or are in the process of) renovating, i.e. République and Les Halles, what are the odds that Place de la Concorde will be regenerated as well, in the not-too-distant future ?

I can't stand it

It will also welcome one of the new Grand Paris Express Station planned for 2024 (also year of the XXXIIIth Olympiad )

Don't forget the Expo 2025 that has just gotten the support of the Prime Minister, Manuel Valls

I remember very well that there has been a project regarding Place de la Concorde in the late 90s when the Right Wing/conservatives were in charge at the City Hall, back then they had planned/proposed to make the inner part of the square 100% pedestrian and such, but when the socialists won the elections in the early 2000s they postponed that project, then they canceled it.

Well yeah, and it's also a nightmare to cross if you're on foot.

Being a central, extensive space, it's got huge potential. But it's a huge roundabout.

Right but please, other main square/streets of the city have been fully reviewed and rebuild (Stalingrad/republique/Les Halles, Rue de Rennes etc)
Next step in the starting block and according to New PAris Mayor Anne Hidalgo's program should be Place de la Nation and Bastille.

Other projects in a second time are for Place d'Italie and (we can dream) Montparnasse corner.

I think i heard something about Concorde but i don't remember where and any planning..

Ohhhh Right.. There is a lot to do on that place, for example close the place on the Parc des Tuileries side to become fully pedestrian and improve access to Champs Elysées

Bastille project


Place d'Italie (vision)


Avenue Foch (proposal)

I like the Bastille one!

Not too convinced by the other ones, but anyway great, I didn't know of these changes being discussed.

They are !
New Mayor has made of the redevelopment of these areas one of her priority, to improve fluidity and creaté tens of thousands housing and offices.
And as inner Paris start to be full, she has to innovate to find and develop new places to build, as optimize squares or build on rail roads

What I said in my post wasn't in order to bash the lefties at the city hall like you seem to believe, since I don't really care about those political stuff. Actually I simply answered the stravinsky's questions regarding Place de la Concorde with the facts that I know, nothing more dear, so no need to jump on quick conclusions .

Oh and BTW the Avenue Foch-Porte Dauphine project/proposal you just mentioned has been (thankfully) canceled during the last elections' campaign (as an inhabitant & voter of the XVIth arrondissement, where Avenue Foch is located, I even received about that a letter in my mailbox from the local socialist candidate, during the campaign).

A new space devoted to contemporary art has been inaugurated in Paris. Designed by American-Canadian architect Frank Gehry, the Louis Vuitton Foundation will house a permanent art collection, as well as temporary exhibitions and concerts in the auditorium.

Nevertheless if that "project" was only a proposal this avenue with such proportions (120m large..) clearly deserve a reflexion on its development.
In this proposal I thought balance between housing and park was interesting.
