Made a few trips to my dear old Paris 14 the last few days...

Campus Jourdan is very advanced, cladding has started:

Reminder of how the end product should look:

As you may remember (or not), Campus Jourdan is right near Cité Internationale Universitaire, and belongs to Ecole Normale Superieure (for their economics school).

On the other side of the road, RATP's construction site for Ateliers Jourdan is still just a big hole in the ground, despite work having started before Campus Jourdan:

Although, researching it a bit, these webcams suggest that the works are fairly advanced:





The person who has the webcams and the website documenting the progress of the project also has some nice webcam screenshots that document the progress from August 2013 (when the bus depot was still intact) to September 2014: http://portedorleans.free.fr/index.php5

Eiffage, the construction company, also has a website for the project but they only have some crappy renders on it, no photos, and Vimeo videos that can't be shared (the latest can be found in the column to the right, under "Vidéo à la une"): http://lesateliersjourdan.fr/le-proj...ion-du-projet/

This is the best there is, online, about the Ateliers Jourdan project:

The official presentation can be downloaded as a pdf file here: http://www.mairie14.paris.fr/mairie1...ortlet_id=1895

On this website you can find captures of the pdf file posted as images: http://portedorleans.free.fr/archives.php
And it also has a couple of webcams here: http://portedorleans.free.fr/index.php5


Some of the captures from the pdf:

Finally, at Alésia the cinema rebuilding is going like I've never seen before: nothing has been done on the actual site, but they're erecting the façade:

Behind the façade the site still looks like this:

(apologies for the thumb)

The structure left feels very awe-inspiring, like the skeleton of a marine monster left on a beach, between ships.

Actually, the concrete walls of the underground levels and theaters are done, and they are now working on the first level. The building is thus going up, but you can't yet see it from the avenue because of the white panels behind the fence, except if you look through the holes between those panels.

I wonder if they are waiting for the building to be higher to take care of the old arches without the need of building some high temporary reinforcement structure.

^interesting, I didn't realize there would be underground levels, but looking now on the transversal plan that Minato_ku posted it is quite obvious.

New metro of Paris will be the most "digital and modern" of the world. Will also add 100-200 billion more euros to the economy.

Don't worry, they are working on another project now, I heard it will be just a scaled down Phare since it was too big.

Grand Paris Express is indeed an amazing infrastructure. When you seehow it will connect with other metro lines and the RER it was just an evidence to build it. It will totally change the way we think Paris urban area. HOpefully it will change minds and give birth to a real Grand Paris. Phare abandonned is a huge desapointment. Let's stay positive and hope for a nice new project.
