The French statistical office INSEE has just published the 2009 GDP figures for Greater Paris (Île-de-France). In 2009 Greater Paris experienced a recession, like the rest of the Western world, but it was rather limited, with only -2.29%. The recession in Greater Paris was more limited than in the rest of France (-2.79%), and of course more limited than in most other Western economies.

Here was GDP growth in 2009 for Greater Paris and the main Western economies:
- Greater Paris: -2.29%
- Canada: -2.46%
- US: -2.63%
- rest of France: -2.79%
- Spain: -3.72%
- Germany: -4.72%
- UK: -4.90%
- Italy: -5.04%
- Japan: -5.22%

Overall the GDP of Greater Paris in 2009 was 768.9 billion US dollars. If it was a country by itself, Greater Paris would have the 17th largest economy in the world, between Turkey (US$614 bn) and the Netherlands (US$797 bn). As for the GDP per capita of Greater Paris, it was US$65,439 in 2009.

In terms of how the economic sectors in Greater Paris fared in 2009, the most affected sector was the manufacturing sector (except the car industry, which benefited from the government stimulus). The least affected sector was, oddly enough, financial services and real estate, which actually managed to grow in 2009! The other least affected sector was education, health services, and social services, which is understandable given the government stimulus. I have no clue why financial services and real estate in Greater Paris managed to grow in 2009. It goes against conventional wisdom. Unless Paris benefited from the repatriation of financial services from the much more battered City of London. We'll probably find out more when more detailed studies are published.

Some renderings about the future multimodal hub of Le Bourget, 11 km north east from the city center. Part of the project is to create a futuristic and brand new train station for the future Grand Paris underground project, the Tangentielle Nord tram-train, the possible extension of the line 5 and 7 and the hypothetical TGV station.



Some more precisions on the press release here.

You're welcome Galik! As far as a return in the french forum is concerned, it's not topical I'm afraid dude...unless a couple of mods is changed obviously , but no worries I'll be staying in the english section, I feel good on here! Bye for now!

PS: great project Sacré Coeur, hope it gets built, this station looks awesome!

Paris 13th: New towers near Massena !

15 november 2010




Quote:
The Bruneseau Massena neighborhood, in the 13th 'arrondissement', is currently a wasteland. But ultimately, it could include one or more towers 180 metres high. That is what the planning regulations, soon changed, according to Le Parisien.

The sector requires for the time limit construction to 37 meters high, but local officials are studying the possible introduction of tall buildings: "The project foresees the possibility of building towers 180 meters high up to four places. For now, one tower is sure, one that would take place at the end of the Avenue de France, dedicated to the office and activity. The work could be started in 2013-2014, "said the daily.

Need social housing

The complex, once upgraded, would include 50% social housing. That's where the rub, because some elected members of the opposition complain that the neighborhood already has 33%. Side of the town hall, the emphasis on the growing need for housing for Parisians. The mayor of the 13th District, Jerome Coumet (PS), sees the positive aspects of such a project: "We will create a new connection with Ivry, build public amenities, green space," he told the newspaper.

Great news today: the demolition work to make way for the 337m (1,106 ft) Hermitage Towers will start on January 3, 2011. It's the start of a new era for La Défense and Paris!

Fantastic news Brisavoine!!!

I remember Alpin13 saying a couple of months ago: '17 November 2010, bear in mind this particular day guys'... actually, that's probably what he was refering to...

I can't wait for this breathtaking project to take shape...

So he's the newest prophet, the announced Messiah who will return all mankind to the true religion of god, he who will build the new Tower of Babel.
