Les Forges Young Workers Residence

Renovation of the Port Beaulieu Young Workers Residence

At the heart of the new Foundries district, the Les Forges residence for young working people (45 social apartments) is the first phase in the redevelopment of the Port-Beaulieu young workers foyer.

The Port-Beaulieu residence was redeveloped between 2006 and 2009, with 4 new or renovated buildings and 2 buildings demolished. The residence is managed by the Nantes company Adélis.

With the completion of Les Forges building on rue Louis Joxe, the demolition-reconstruction of the main building of the young workers foyer could begin. The first residents moved in in September 2007, to allow for the demolition of a building on Boulevard Vincent Gâche.

The new Les Forges foyer is located across from the Foundries Garden in a renovated warehouse. This development receives funding from the European Commission for its energy efficiency, under the act2 Project of the Concerto Initiative.
