Looks like two alternative plans for Cite and St. Louis islands (the ones in the center of the map and in the upper right).

No, they definitly planned to combine two islands into one (the names of both former islands are seen). But there are two different projects of this combined island street plan and it seems strange to put both on the same map.

I misunderstood you. I thought you meant that one was a proposal for Île de la Cité and the other for Île Saint-Louis. I think you are right, it does looks like two different proposed plans to combine the islands but I don't know anything more about it.
