This urban renewal project, which covers the whole neighbourhood of 2.2 hectares, aims to prioritise both the quality of architecture and quality of life.
Jérôme Viaud, the mayor of Grasse, unveiled, at the end of January, the complete urban renewal project of the Martelly neighbourhood situated at the East entrance of the old town, in the centre of Grasse.
This neighbourhood will comprise not only housing (145 homes, 1/3 of which will be rent controlled), but also economic activity with 8 000 m² of local shops on street level, a supermarket (Monoprix) which will be refitted, and a hotel complex, as well as cultural activities with a multiscreen cinema which will work in synergy with the nearby Theatre of Grasse. Car parks and public spaces linked to public transport and the bus station will complete the overall development of this neighbourhood.
The development works, led by the Bouygues Immobilier/Wilmotte/Mus group, should start in 2 years with a final delivery in June 2021.
The French Riviera Chamber of Commerce and Industry (CCI) was naturally associated with the planning discussions and works about the future of this sector, initiated some ten years ago. Today, the CCI, which advocates city centre planning combining mixed use and a balance between living areas and areas of economic activity, praises the quality of this ambitious project: to revitalize a city centre and to strengthen the attractiveness of the Grasse area.
