Hello

I'm a frelance reporter for an international news outlet and I'm writing a feature about the most recent land restoration project in Monaco.

I would be interested in finding out how this will influence Monaco and if will offer something different. I'm intereted in learning the advantages and the disadvantages from an environmental, business, architects, construction perspective.

I look forward to hearing from you.

Yours faithfully.


Claire

Hello.
Nice to see international media covering this.
I am not a resident of Monaco, but a frequent visitor so I can only give you my personal opinion.

Among the pro's are that the country grows in an orderly fashion. If you google "Portier extension" you quickly realize that this choice was among the most conservative ones.
The others included floating islands and a bunch of other strange things.

Further, I hope this will lessen the destruction of old buildings in Monaco.
Because of the high demand of residences in Monaco, several older buildings, 19th century villas and smaller buildings have given way to high residential towers and buildings; slowly eradicating the soul of Monaco.
I hear there is talk of protective legislation to preserve old buildings going on so that might help aswell.

New berths for yachts and boats is greatly welcomed. It is in high demand all along the riviera, but Monaco is especially in need since it is essentially the yachting capital of the world.
Port Hercule is big but pretty filled and this will relieve that somewhat.

I also like the greenery. Monaco is the worlds most desenly populated country but there is quite alot greenery, but this will increase it much more.


I don't really see any negative aspects. Other than they chose modern architecture it's mostly positive.
Monaco is on the forefront of marine perservation and there are two marine reserves on either side of the Portier section (one in Larvotto, in front of the beach and the other outside of the Fairmont Hotel), so this will not be an issue.

Edit: Please let us know when and were you will post the article, looking forward to reading it.

I had some spare time yesterday and imagined how the beach could be redone thanks to the new Anser du Portier.

I moved the western breakwater further out, aproximately just outside the last building in Anser du Portier.
Then I added a eastern breakwater outside Sporting Summer / Jimmy'z on the Larvotto Peninsula.
The middle breakwater is moved slightly to the east and much farther out.
The old eastern breakwater is somewhat more out in the ocean, but much smaller.

This way, more sand can be added on the beach, making it bigger.
Also, I added a walkway straight from the middle breakwater, to a stair up to the Avenue Princesse Grace (perhaps further up to the Boulevard Du Larvotto?).

The eastern breakwater could expand the room for the Sporting Monaco / Jimmy'z.

I think it looks great. What do you think?

It's quite deep farther out in the sea, so making the beach bigger will require some sand...

Finally google maps has taken new aerial photos over Monaco! Now you can see all the new buildings/constructions from the last nine years, when the old photos were taken!
Notice the beach villas, tour odon, Ilot Rainier 3, Ilt Canton, the Monte-Carlo Pavilions, La petite Afrique, the yacht club, le simona, the rose garden, the hospital and many other projects!

Haha, yes! But the pictures have really bad quality for being 2015, it's quite a shame...

True.
I also hope they will renew the Street View; that hasn't been updated for a while.

I think it will be placed here, next to the Casino Gardens, but I'm not sure:
maps.google.com

I guessed right. That building is now torn down.

Highrises are nice and everything, but Monaco should only replace bland post-war architecture for these. And more New Classical projects should be realised in the city.

Classy classical architecture along with the coastal landscape and yachts is what makes the place so special. Or what used to make it special, because all the bland highrises and modernist buildings somehow make it appear more exchangeable, taking away its uniqueness. It turns into some nouveau-rich sort of Benidorm if it doesn't pay attention...

I walked past the construction site of Hotel De Paris and saw this thing on the edge of the garden towards the harbour.

Looks like a big structure of some sort, but the roof looks like it's in Belle Epoque style, so that is reassuring.

But I wonder what it is?

I think it would be better to expand through artificial islands connected to the mainland by a bridge , so the mainland would be like an '' old town district '' and could preserve its architecture.

I totally agree. It would also be better in many other aspects. But I think the government thinks it's too expensive.

Just buy some French land, Monaco. It can't be that expensive.

Very quiet here for a while now.
Any news on that building at the end of Quai Antoine 1er?

Or anything new on L'Anse du Portier?

I stumbled upon this rather odd picture on a real estate site.

It seems to be a proposal for different buildings in the Port Hercule Area.
The jettys look different, a low building just before the Quai Rainier III, some sort of mini-tower at Tabac etc.

Anyone know what this is?

I found this article from 2009 that speaks of a planed expansion of the Rock of Monaco, going out towards Fontvielle.

http://www.telegraph.co.uk/news/worl...ore-space.html

Does anyone know anything about this?
