How Can the Site Contribute to the Productive City?
The site includes a large concentration of business activities (commercial & artisanal spaces, a dynamic business district and high-quality services), as well as a large range of housing types. The challenge is to upgrade a heterogeneous area rich in contrasts: uniting zones that have degraded with those that are emerging. In a highly competitive environment, the site has to find new force. The city and municipalities wish to guide the changes already at work on this site towards a variety of functions that would reinforce productive activity. What urban composition and mix of architectural typology should be proposed?
