The Tripode neighbourhood is taking shape
This new district provides an attractive tertiary offering, as well as housing, shops and services, in an area that takes advantage of its proximity to the Loire to reconnect the city with the river, via an original and ambitious public space project that aims to create a vibrant community.
Developed in the 1970s around the old Tripode building, this area today is a jumble of buildings on 21 hectares.
Today the redevelopment project is creating a new diverse neighbourhood as part of the Euronantes Business Park, combining businesses, housing, shops and public facilities (nearly 95,000 sq. m to be built) in a lovely setting for walking, biking and enjoying the Loire.
Like the other Ile de Nantes sites, the Tripode project was designed based on discussions with all the stakeholders involved.
Diversity, in terms of functions, populations and architecture, is one of the key features of the project. Offices, apartments, shops, recreational and green spaces are all on hand so that families and people who work in the area can share a common space at the heart of the city. The proximity to the Loire helps reconnect the area to the river. Pedestrian and bike paths have been created. Two ponds measuring 1500 sq. m and 2000 sq. m naturally filter rainwater runoff from the public spaces and the nearby real estate development.
The first phase was delivered in December 2009 (Block B, ponds and riverside redevelopment). A second phase will be delivered in the second half of 2010 (rue Tardieu, Riverside Park). The final phase will be completed in the second half of 2012, with the development of the public spaces around Block A.
