Does anyone know anything about the development underway adjacent to and on the North side of Boulevard Massena, close to where the road crosses the railway lines leading to Gare d'Austerlitz?

The reason why I'm curious about it relates to the disused railway, the 'Chemin de fer Petite Ceinture'. I saw at the weekend when I was in Paris that the new construction - at the moment at least - leaves just about enough space for a single railway track to still run through, but I'm wondering what the final state of affairs will be, and if the trackbed is going to be breached at some point.

Also, does anyone know of any latest proposals for the famous railway line?

Several high-rises are planned in this area.
We will have more information in 2012.



About the Petite Ceinture disused railway, I don't know what it will become.
The space for the tracks will remain as this line is still owned by the RFF (Réseau Ferré de France, the national company that owns train track).

590ft controversial 'Triangle' tower to be built in Paris
Paris town council has given the green light to a controversial "Triangle" tower rising 590ft above Paris which critics say is an "attack on the beauty of the French capital".



By Henry Samuel, Paris 3:55PM BST 31 Mar 2011

The 40-storey steel and glass building will be the first skyscraper to be built inside the French capital in more than 30 years and will cost 535m euros (£472 million)
The privately financed building, scheduled for completion by 2017, will overlook Paris from its southwestern extremity at the porte de Versailles, already home to a vast exhibition centre.
It will include mainly offices, a conference hall, panoramic restaurants and ground-floor shops, creating 5,000 jobs according to local authorities.
Earlier plans to include a hotel, swimming pool and museum have been scrapped.

Sarko wants to built a 106km long canal that will connect Paris to the North Sea

Quote:
Nicolas Sarkozy lance la dernière phase du canal Seine-Nord Europe

En lançant le « dialogue compétitif» qui départagera Bouygues et Vinci-Eiffage pour la construction de l'ouvrage, Nicolas Sarkozy ouvre la voie à la dernière phase du chantier. A la clef, au moins 25.000 emplois dans la logistique, les transports et l'industrie.

Ce n'est pas encore le premier coup de pioche, mais les partisans du canal Seine-Nord Europe ont de quoi reprendre espoir. Le président de la République s'est rendu mardi dans la Somme pour visiter le chantier d'abaissement de l'autoroute A29, financé par l'Etat dans le cadre du plan de relance, opération nécessaire à la construction de la voie d'eau de 106 kilomètres de long entre l'Oise et le puissant réseau fluvial de l'Europe du Nord (« Les Echos du 31 mars). A cette occasion, Nicolas Sarkozy a annoncé le lancement de la phase de « dialogue compétitif » pour la construction du canal à grand gabarit.
Cette phase sera menée avec les deux candidats retenus, Vinci associé à Eiffage d'une part, Bouygues de l'autre, pour ce partenariat public-privé. Le lancement du « dialogue compétitif » signifie que le choix du constructeur sera effectué «dans le courant de l'année prochaine», pour une mise service du canal en 2016 ou 2017, a précisé le chef de l'Etat lors d'un déplacement à Nesle (Somme). «Ce projet est central (...). C'est un projet de 4,5 milliards d'euros», a ajouté le président, en affirmant que «la réponse d'un pays à la crise n'est pas la rétractation, c'est au contraire l'investissement».
Le canal sera financé à hauteur de 2,1 milliards par son constructeur, tandis que l'Etat et les collectivités locales apporteront chacun 900 millions d'euros, alors que l'Europe doit contribuer au projet à hauteur de 330 millions d'euros. Reste donc encore à trouver le solde.
L'importance des sommes en jeu a suscité des interrogations jusqu'au sein du gouvernement, même si le projet présente de réels atouts, surtout dans un contexte de renchérissement de l'énergie. A elle seule, la possibilité de faire circuler des convois beaucoup plus importants que sur les canaux actuels permettrait d'assurer un trafic d'environ 14 millions de tonnes par an à l'horizon 2020 et de 25 millions de tonnes en 2050, selon les calculs de Voies Navigables de France (VNF). Le secteur agricole devrait fournir environ 30 % du trafic et le BTP 20 %, tandis que les produits industriels devraient représenter un gros tiers de l'activité, devant les produits énergétiques (environ 15 %).
Bénéficier de la mondialisation

Plus que tout, ce canal doit mettre en réseau les ports du Havre, de Rouen, de Paris, de Dunkerque, d'Anvers et de Rotterdam. Longtemps opposé au projet dans la mesure où il risquait de profiter d'abord à Anvers, le port du Havre y voit maintenant, à l'heure de la mondialisation, un atout. Avec des quais bientôt desservis par la voie d'eau et capables d'accueillir les plus gros porte-conteneurs du monde, le port normand développe avec Paris et Rouen une logique d'Axe Seine dans le cadre du Grand Paris. Il peut notamment espérer fixer en France les activités logistiques à haute valeur ajoutée liées à la mondialisation. « Ce sont des emplois non délocalisables », rappelle le directeur commercial du port du Havre, Hervé Cornède.
Outre les plates-formes logistiques du Havre, de Rouen de Paris, et du nord de la France, le canal Seine-Nord devrait accueillir quatre zones logistiques (Noyon, Nesle, Péronne Haute Picardie et Cambrai Marquion) ainsi que des quais de transbordement. S'y ajouteront cinq ports de plaisance ou à passagers pour développer le tourisme. « Seine-Nord Europe devrait créer entre 10.000 et 11.000 emplois, dont 4.000 sur le chantier, et à terme 25.000 dans la logistique, l'industrie et le transport », plaide-t-on à VNF.
L'établissement public pointe aussi son impact sur l'environnement. A l'horizon 2020, le futur canal soulagerait les autoroutes de 500.000 camions par an et permettrait d'économiser 550.000 tonnes de CO2 en 2050. Il devrait aussi limiter les risques d'inondations. Des bénéfices environnementaux que certains n'hésitent pas à chiffrer, à 2,4 milliards d'euros, auxquels s'ajouteraient 8 milliards d'économies sur les transports. S'ils se vérifient, ils susciteront des investissements importants au nord de Paris.


Quote:
- 106 kilomètres de long.
-54 mètres de large.

-55 millions de mètres cubes de terre déplacés.
- 7 écluses.
-3 ponts-canal.

-4 plates-formes d'activités intégrées au projet.
-5 quais céréaliers.
- 2 quais de transbordement.
-5 équipements pour la plaisance.
- 2 bassins réservoirs d'eau.
-4,3 milliards d'euros dont 2,1 milliards apportés par le constructeur.
- 25.000 emplois à terme.

Yes the Seine is navigable to the sea but this canal will allow new connection, especially with the Dunkirk, Antwerp and Rotterdam.

In the french forums, we don't have any idea about the Triangle's clad and it makes us very scared .... the only way to do not reproduce the Montparnasse's mistake is to make something transparent and NOT LONELY !! We have already fail this last point so.... a bad clad and it's all over . we risk it all....


( So sorry for my bad english, hope you understand...)

The exhibition venue in Porte de Versailles will gradually be too small..and another place will have to be found out of Paris city to replace it. I have the feeling that the current location will become a high-rise area and that the remaining halls next to Tour Triangle will be demolished to build skyscrapers...Time will tell.

Well, if you say so......Anyway, I wasn't complaining, I simply said I don't like this fugly Triangle tower..nothing more...

But, don't worry, I'm not the kind of guy who joins the "anti-tower associations"... Far from that, 'cause as a matter of fact, I don't care... (but still: I really, really don't like Triangle )

Located in Central Paris and in the very posh 7th arrondissement, the redevelopment of the old Laennec hospital.



-321 dwelling house
191 private appartement
80 social housing appartement
50 students room
-17,200m² of office space
-14 000m² of green space
-4,500 m² of commercial space
-Gerontology center
-Alzheimer's care center


Very conservative architecture





If you do not have a lot of money, it is not for you.



The work

Of course, Sarko wants a piece de resistance associated with him just like his predecessors. Don't see any seine reason to bring the North Sea to Paris.
