A policy to support business creation and trade, an innovative tourism and territorial marketing strategy, care in developing urban projects, rigorous requirements in architectural choices, investment towards the development of public areas, mobility, accessibility: Caen Normandie constantly asserts its will to develop and welcome.
The ‘Grande Mosaïque’ Guide Plan developed by Winy Maas’ MVRDV architectural agency presents the project for Caen’s Presqu’île: to develop, on the waterfront and in the vicinity of the railway station, the heart of the Caen metropolis, to welcome both families and activities (7,000 homes and 50,000m2 of economic activity).
The Global Development Project for Caen’s North Plateau has been devised by a pluridisciplinary team of experts and coordinated by the Devillers & Associés consultancy. The aim is to reorganise the North Plateau (2,000 ha, 16,000 jobs, 1,200 researchers, 14,000 students) in order to valorise its remarkable scientific potential and to create an environment designed to stimulate innovation and economic development.
This 7,500m2 site in the city centre will sustainably and continuously reunite populations from the world over: students, researchers, startupers, employees from SMEs/mid-market companies/large groups and citizens. Their shared aim: to work and live together, to invent the world of the future. Further information on the MoHo.
The Grande Halle project is the encounter between a heritage building, the former SMN electrical workshop, and a process – that of Third Places, sites aimed at working, creating, producing in an open, pluridisciplinary and collaborative manner.
The Grande Halle belongs to the semi-public company Normandie Aménagement, which has been studying how to breathe new life into this symbolic site since 2013. The company is working on the site’s reconversion with architects from Construire and Encore Heureux.
