In April 2022, 77 cranes were active in Rouen according to the attractiveness agency Rouen Normandy Invest. Indeed, there are many important projects underway and others have not yet started. Therefore, we take this opportunity to take stock* of these urban and real estate projects that will transform the landscape of the city. You can also take a look at these projects that will transform the churches of Rouen.
This is THE largest urban project underway in Rouen and there are still a few years to see the final result. Still, buildings begin to rise on the site of the Rouen Flaubert District (which is no longer called the “Flaubert ecological neighborhood”).
Work in progress refers to block B, located along avenue Jean-Rondeaux. An operation judiciously called “Flaubert’s Awakening.”
Linkcity, architects TVK and AZ Architectes, as well as OLM Paysages are building there 256 homes, 9000m² of offices and 300m² of commercial premises. Eventually, the whole of this block B should include 16,000 m² of offices (including those in Bouygues Bâtiment Grand Ouest) and 390 homes.
First phase delivery announced in 2023. At the same time, the many remaining sites in the Rouen-Flaubert district will continue for a few more years.
The 105, future trendy place on the docks
Here too, workers are busy on site from shed 105. The hole left in the docks on the left bank is progressively filled.
The ultra-modern building designed by Marc Mimram Y managed by the Metropolitan It will host a multitude of activities: the Rouf restaurant with its multiple environments and its roof terrace, a hotel, a coworking… In short, the 105 promises to be a new trendy place to live people from Rouen who have reclaimed the docks of the lower left bank in recent years.Videos: currently on Actu
Delivery of the 105 is expected before the next scheduled Armada in June 2023.
More than a metamorphosis, a renaissance awaits the Pépinières district, on the left bank of Rouen.
The last “Lods”, these buildings glass and steel if it is denounced, it must disappear to make way for an island of houses and vegetation in the heart of the Saint-Clément district.
The project led by Cogedim and Virgil should include 600 new homes (plus another 175 from Rouen Habitat), a park and it could also integrate a nursery, a medical center, a restaurant or even a bicycle repair shop.
For now, it’s time inquiry which will end on May 3. Then it will be necessary to be patient before seeing the delivery of the first phase of the operation, planned for 2026.
The rebirth of Ile Lacroix
In the next years, The island of Lacroix must become greener ! This district, slightly removed from Rouen, is at the heart of the great project of renaturation run by the municipality.
Thus a yard should see the light at the entrance of the neighborhood and the inhabitants voted for a more “natural” project than the other two, made up of wetlands and dense vegetation. Its development is scheduled for the second half of 2022.
But this is not the only great project of Île Lacroix. Océade’s ghost pool must become center focused on urban sports like riding a skateboard. In the district between two shores, we also expect a course tree climbing or even rehabilitation of the old VNF facilities. Longer-term projects that we will follow closely.
Two large projects with a large share of the hotel industry are currently under construction in Rouen.
First there is the Palace of the Consulsthat once housed the CPInearly arts theater. The monumental post-war building is densified to house a nursing home, apartments and two hotels, an Adagio Access with 72 rooms and a 4-star Novotel with 85 rooms.
will have to wait until 2023 to see the ensemble, made by Cap Horn Promotion and designed by Ataub architectes, see the light of day.
Another great hotel project, “skip school”. The trade name may not mean anything to you, but this is the great project of the Matmut within the former teacher training college, located on the Neufchâtel road.
The complex will not house a convention center as planned and has also suffered from the COVID-19. But the Matmut assures us that we will certainly find a prestigious 4-star Hyatt Hotel. There will also be a spa, a restaurant and offices.
The building designed by CBA Architectes should, according to Matmut, be delivered in 2022.
*The list of ongoing projects is obviously not exhaustive. Other large-scale projects are underway in Rouen and in metropolitan France. We have chosen to select the ones that seem most emblematic to us.
