Great projects by themselves, but unfortunalty they contribute to making Marseille loose it's identity by exploding housing prices in the center.

Maybe a couple will be completed, but I suspect most will never see the light of day and there will be little change in the city.

Just as a reminder, this thread is about the project of Marseille Euromed District (there are other projects in the city but I don't speak of them on this thread). Euromed Marseille is the biggest project of redevelopment ever being planned in France since Paris La Defense. As a consequence it is one of Europe's biggest project.
All those towers have been approved. All of them are plan to be built within 5 years.
Cma cgm tower is the first: it is currently underconstruction. Icade tower is subsidized by Deutschbank invetors and sas suede project is financed by Morgan and Stanley. The city is experiencing a boom and there is a big shortage to face the offices' demand.

Let's continue with Euromed Center (which I agree has taken a lot of delay).

Architect: Massimiliano Fuksas

I was in Marseille the last week and really loved it!
I'm glad they are redoing the site sourrounding the Cathedral, it's really not up to the standard of the beautiful building.

The Tour CMA CGM looks really great and I like the fact that the skyscrapers are located a bit outside of downtown and in a cluster.

What is this sqaure called and where is it exactly? I must have missed it

Hi Lpioe,

This square is called Place Sadi Carnot and is located on the biggest "Haussmanian Avenue in the world" (as promotors sell it) which is Rue de la Republique. The whole street is being reshaped and redeveloped, it will be one the most commercial street in downtown Marseilles.



Here is a photo taken a few month ago (before the opening of the tramway): (as you can see the place is still "under construction"))
The street that you see in front is another street.

Here are three photos of typical haussmanian architecture in Rue de la Republique.

Thanks for the info.
I think I actually passed this square but didn't notice it
I took the tramway from the metro station Joliet to the Canebière.
Rue de la Republique is one of the nicest streets I've ever seen, really loved it.

Really like the first render, the towers look great.
Do you know what's the height of these?

The Euromed Center by Fuksas is great. I'm sure it will become a landmark for Marseille. It reminds me a bit of Calatrava's opera in Valencia.

Overall some pretty nice projects, but I think that for the Sas Suede project the tower in the middle is a bit too much, it should've had a more simple design/facade.

I've always had a desire to visit Marseille and now I guess I'm gonna wait for these projects to be completed.
