Mantes University mixed development zone

Creating the heart of an urban centre

Mantes-la-Ville / Buchelay / Mantes-la-jolie


At the intersection of the municipalities of Mantes-la-Ville, Buchelay and Mantes-la-Jolie, the EPAMSA is reclaiming disused industrial and railway sites in the heart of this urban setting by designing a mixed development in the vicinity of the SNCF station, forming a new multi-mode interchange which is to accommodate the RER EOLE by 2020.
The technological university centre, the shopping centre to be constructed from the redeveloped Sulzer factory building and public facilities will be incorporated into the existing fabric, thus restoring a coherent urban structure. Contemporary architecture will make its contribution to the renewal of the local image.
