Pretty interesting. And very ambitious too. Looking at a marine map of Monaco, I see this planned extension of the principality would need to reclaim land where the sea bed is 40 meters below the surface of the sea. For comparison, the sea bed at Fontvieille, reclaimed in the 1970s, was only 20 meters below the surface of the sea.

Monaco would have to reclaim it to the international community ? I wonder how many would it cost to buy an extension for a country.
We can sell them Roquebrune if they want, we need money

No, it's Monaco's territorial sea.

It will add only 5 to 6 hectares (12 to 15 acres) to the principality. So it will increase the land area of the principality by only 2.5% to 3.0%. Fontvieille, for comparison, which was reclaimed in the 1970s, added 22 hectares (54 acres) to the principality.

Some photos (taken by myself a few days ago) of the construction of the Tour Odéon:

T'aurais pas une vue prise de loin ? Ça serait bien de voir l'impact de la tour sur la skyline de la principauté.

Monaco €1 billion reclamation plan for luxury homes district

Monaco, the tiny principality surrounded on three sides by France and bearing a name synonymous with glamour and wealth, has growth on its mind. Long accustomed to punching above its weight, the city-state is planning to become bigger in the best way it can: out to sea.

The government of Prince Albert II, the reigning monarch and head of state, is inviting bids for a new district of luxury apartment blocks, shops and offices to occupy a six-hectare site that currently belongs to the Mediterranean. (...)

The cost of Monaco's new reclamation project is estimated at €1 billion but since this takes no account of superstructure including buildings, roads and service, the final figure is likely to be several times higher. The winning candidate will assume responsibility for the financing, design and implementation of the development. Competing bids must be submitted by July 23 and meet environmentally friendly criteria. The government has set a target of 2024 for work to be complete.

The newly reclaimed land will replace what is now an offshore area close to the Grimaldi Forum (pictured above), a concert hall and conference centre named after the Genoese dynasty that has ruled Monaco, with brief interruptions, since the end of the 13th century. Monaco's government says it will insist on the most rigorous environmental standards with "sustainable urban design" its guiding principle. For example, vehicles will have access but arrangements for pedestrians and cyclists will be given priority over those for motorised transport. The blocks of apartments will be restricted to six to 10 storeys with private gardens and public open spaces. (...)

(The National)

What authority issues the building permits in Monaco? Say one has a proposal for a new building; where does one turn?

You're on a need to know basis.

I would think the Prince has other things to attend to than construction projects? Or perhaps not.

I would guess the Ministry of Public Works, the Environment and Urban Development is the place to be.

Does anyone know what will happen to the old Conceil National-building once they move into the new one?

Converted into office space/apartiments or remain within the government?

A 22 storey tower has been approved for Rue Des Giroflees.

It means the loss of no less than SIX villas: numbers 1a 7,8,10,12 and 14 in that street. With only two handfuls left, Monaco can't afford to lose one villa let alone six, or the low rise space they provide. It's incredibly short sighted. This was a charming narrow street. Shockingly, there was only once Council vote against, and councillor one abstaining, who said in the paper he deplored "the loss of the charming villas." Un-fing-believable. Monaco gets uglier by the month. And worse, it's screwing its brand.

Very very sad. I thought the era of uninhibited demolishing was over...

Can't they replace the butt ugly 70s buildings? Alot of these makes no sense and could be rebuilt using alot more of the space.
Just take these two along the hairpin east of the Casino Square.


Both could be rebuilt and use more of the space; especially the taller one; it has almost only it's condos towards the water; why not towards the Casino Square?!

Couldn't agree more. There is just so much bad 60s and 70s tat that needs replacing. There are also at least 3 towers in critical positions that absolutely compromise views and need replacing with low rise. That would be challenging, but absorbing more people is the wrong way for Monaco. In an ideal world they would be taking a step back and working to enhance the quality of life it offers. First thing I'd do would be removing the heliport to lower noise pollution. There have been so many planning mistakes made. One example: burying the railway offered a major opportunity to create a superb urban greenway, and would have enabled creative redevelopment of neighbouring buildings so they took advantage of it in their aspect. It would have given Monaco invaluable 'breathing space' where the endless walls of apartments are the most visually oppressive. Instead, it was just built over.

I suppose there is a need for the heliport but I agree with what youre saying.
