Fedex to invest $1.54 billion in France to double capacity at Roissy airport

Quote:
Package delivery company FedEX Corp said on Tuesday it would invest 1.4 billion euros ($1.54 billion) to double the capacity of its logistics activities at the Charles de Gaulle International Airport in the Paris suburb of Roissy.

The initial investment by the U.S-listed firm will amount to 200 million euros ($220 million).

Under the plan, the U.S. group plans to open a new package sorting facility in 2019, creating between 200 and 400 jobs, according to a document handed out during a visit by President Francois Hollande.

The extra 25,000 square metres of space will make FedEx's Roissy center its second biggest in the world after the one in Memphis in the United States.
Delivery service company TNT Express, which was bought in May by FedEX, also plans to open a new facility in the Parisian region, according to the same document.

The Val d'Europe agglomeration in Outer Paris wants to build a 6K indoor arena (in Bailly-Romainvilliers more exactly). If I understand right the idea has started in their minds when they were bidding for the new location of Roland Garos (which eventually remained where it is). They do not know yet what sport it will host (besides concerts, congresses etc.) but they have made a call for projects to the French sports federations. They feel they have a good position because of vicinity of Disney and the under construction "Nature Village", which means hotel rooms, national train connections by TGV and connection to Paris by RER. The foreseen cost is 48M euro in a PPP. They are wishing to sort out the financing this autumn and start the operation stage this winter.

Nooo, that's Arena 92.

This would be a competitor to the House of Handball (to be built in Créteil).

I posted this in the demographics thread, but I thought people here might find it interesting too:

Khan puts the overall number of new homes that the capital needs to build each year at 50,000, but in 2015 the figure was only 24,610 — and that was the highest total in a decade.
Quote:

Those are very low numbers compared to Paris (63,200 in 2015, and growing). And the official objectives (50,000 per year for London, 25,000 per year for Berlin) are also quite low.

In Paris the official objective of yearly dwelling construction was raised to 70,000 per year in 2010 when the French Parliament passed the so-called Greater Paris Act ('Loi relative au Grand Paris') in June of that year. This law was a watershed moment in the history of Paris, but the demographic consequences are yet to be observed given that it will take a few years to materialize, and so far the only data we have are from the January 2013 census.

In a nutshell, this Greater Paris Act reversed 140 years of anti-Parisian national policies which aimed to contain and block the growth of Paris, seen as a threat to the rest of the country ('Paris and the French desert' was the title of a very influential book published in 1947).



Many policies were designed to limit the growth of the Paris Region: firms needed special administrative authorizations to open plants in the Paris Region (the administration tried to discourage them and push them to open their plants in the provinces instead), companies established in the Paris Region had to pay a special tax, you could not build white-collar offices in the Paris Region without special administrative authorizations and special fees. More insidiously, various French governments made a point not to finance transport and housing projects in the Paris Region, the reasoning being that if there was no housing available and transportation was a nightmare, people would not move to Paris or would even leave it (turned out these policies became successful only after 1970, when the net migration of the Paris Region finally became negative, and has remained so to this day).

Various books have been published on the issue. For example this one: 'The enemies of Paris. Hatred of the big city from the Enlightenment to the present time.'



In the 2000s, a great shift took place in the thinking of the French elites. With continuous weakness of the French economy, they became aware of the importance of global cities in a now globalized world. The world economy is now said to be a network of global cities linked with each other. The concept of "national economies" is becoming increasingly outdated. The works of scholars like Saskia Sassen (who speaks very good French and is listened to a lot in France) played a great role. The same realization actually took place in the UK with London, albeit 10 years earlier than in France with Paris.

As a consequence, 10 to 15 years late compared to the UK, the French authorities also reversed their anti-metropolis policies in the late 2000s and have now embraced high growth for Paris again, the first time this is explicitly formulated and defended by the national authorities since the days of Haussmann and Napoléon III (1852-1870).

The Greater Paris Act of June 2010 determined some zones (areas) of economic and urban development in the Paris Region. These zones will form clusters with each cluster having a specialization in the global economy (copying the Silicone Valley cluster; for example there will be a cluster specialized in biotechnologies in the northern part of Essonne, another one specialized in finance around La Défense, etc). The goal stated in the law is to bring within a decade the GDP growth rate of the Paris Region to +4% per year, and to create 800,000 jobs.

The most famous provision of the Greater Paris Act is of course the creation of nearly 200 km of new subway lines linking all these economic clusters, the Grand Paris Express, which will form lines 15, 16, 17, 18 of the Paris métro network, and whose construction finally started on June 4, 2016, but also the extension of line 14 and line E of the métro and RER networks (line E will link La Défense to St Lazare and Gare du Nord, thus bypassing Châtelet-Les Halles).





In order to reduce pressure on the housing market and accommodate new inhabitants needed by the (hoped for) growing economy, the Greater Paris Act has established special development areas in a radius of 400 meters around the future métro stations. Within these areas, eminent domain and preemption (mandatory purchase by a public authority when a piece of real estate is on sale) will be used to buy current real estate and unbuilt land, demolish whatever is on site, and build high density housing developments.

Within that context, the Greater Paris Act set a very ambitious objective of 70,000 new dwellings built per year. Ambitious, because the previous objective of 53,000 new dwellings per year set in 1994 had never been achieved, yet as can be see in the graph below it turns out the streamlining of administrative procedures, the reinforced cooperation between various public authorities (communes, departments, intercommunalities, region, metropolis, and all their attached public entities), plus the tax breaks and various legal advantages granted to private developers have almost already achieved this new objective before the development zones around the future métro stations even started to be developed! (the dwellings in the special development areas around the future métro stations won't start to appear before the very end of the 2010s).

In 2015, the construction of 63,200 new dwellings was started throughout the Paris Region, the highest number since the 1980s, and in 2016 the data we have so far show further progress: in the 12 months ending in August 2016, 69,600 new dwellings have started construction. This is the highest number for any 12-month period since the start of records in 1989, and it nearly reaches the objective of 70,000. Now the business world (Greater Paris Chamber of Commerce and Industry, etc) are pushing for an even more ambitious objective: 90,000 new dwellings started every year.



For an idea of what this potentially means for the demographics of Paris, in the 1980s when construction was slightly above 60,000 dwellings per year, the population of the Paris Region grew by +0.75% per year, compared to just +0.5% per year in the 2000s and early 2010s (today that would mean going from a net growth of +60,000 people per year to a net growth of +90,000 people per year).

These are pictures and videos shot during some of our urban explorations showing two development areas along the extension of line 14. These projects predate the Greater Paris Act of 2010, which is why they are already rising and already pushing up the number of dwelling constructions in Greater Paris. They illustrate how the new development areas around the future métro stations of the Grand Paris Express will look like.

I think, why not, if it's integrated nicely. It can be smaller I suppose.
