Finally someone is starting a thread about the massive urban regeneration projects in Marseille. Mieux vaut tard que jamais !

A few statistics and background information about Marseille. It's true that the city proper is the second most populated in France with 820,900 inhabitants as of January 1, 2005, but it is only the fourth most populated metro area of France after Paris, Lille, and Lyon. At the 1999 census the Marseille metro area had 1,516,340 inhabitants, which is about the size of the Valencia metro area in Spain.

The city prospered in the 19th and 20th century as the gateway to the colonies, the main port linking the vast French colonial empire and metropolitan France. Marseille was a bit the Liverpool of France. As a legacy of this period, Marseille is now one of the most cosmopolitan and ethnically diverse cities in Europe. At the 1999 census, 21% of the city proper residents were people born outside of metropolitan France.

As Liverpool, Marseille suffered a lot after the loss of the colonies and especially after the oil shock of the 1970s, but it is now experiecing something of a revival after two decades of slow economic and population growth. The new center-right municipality, elected in 1995 after many decades of Socialist rule, has been trying to change the image of Marseille and make it more pro-business. These skyscrapers and regeneration projects are part of their strategy. A bit like what happened in the London docklands or in the old harbor of Barcelona, they are trying to turn derelict old docks into a vibrant business center catering to service industries.

It seems their strategy is beginning to pay off as the city of Marseille proper is for the first time in many years attracting new residents. Since the oil shock of the 1970s, people tended to leave the city and its messy reputation as a dirty, tax-heavy, crime-ridden place to move to the wealthier suburbs, but things are changing now. The population of the city proper has increased from 798,430 at the 1999 census to 820,900 inhabitants in 2005.

In 2003 the GDP of the metro area was 44.9 billion euros (US$50,8 billion), which is approx. one-third the size of the economy of Ireland, up from 30.8 billion euros in 1995. Marseille international airport, with 6,110,000 passengers in 2006, is the fifth busiest in France after Paris-CDG, Paris-Orly, Nice, and Lyon.

Finally, a few shots of the city. Marseille is a unique mix of Mediterranean Naples, Haussmannian Paris, and ritzy French Riviera. I've tried to show the difference faces of the city.

With the upgrades in other Mediterranean cities, it was up to Marseille to change its image and not lag behind, because while it's no Toulon, it still doesn't have a good reputation.

I personally like the towers, and what I like the most is that they are willing to plan them in a cluster, and not leave it up to the developers, otherwise will be a mess with a tower here and there, nothing really interesting. Now we can expect a nice bouillabaisse cluster

Wow, I had no idea this Euromediterranée project is so big.
It looks great, especially Tour CMA CGM and the Euromed Center.

Marseille is clearly my second most favourite city in France. I just love its athmosphere. The thing is that it seems Marseille succeeded to devellop its specific identity. When you're in Marseille, you could be nowhere else.

Amazing stuff. I hope I am still alive to see this when it's finished. I take it, very little has started yet.
