Encompassing 54 hectares in the 17th arrondissement of Paris, the Clichy Batignolles’ project is one of the largest urban development projects underway in the Paris area. As with other ongoing projects, Clichy Batignolles has been developed on land previously occupied logistics and transport infrastructure, like the Saint-Lazare rail lines and the ring-road. Creating a dense urban environment in a constrained zone is the major challenge, along with with the diminution of the enclave effect created by the rail infrastructure.
The urban and landscape architecture has been designed by the architect François Grether, winner of the Grand Prize of Urbanism 2012, and Jacqueline Osty, and the technical support has been provided by OGI
Nowadays, Clichy-Batignolles is an area which connects the preexisting neighborhoods with a 10ha park and the Paris Law Court, a 160m building created by the architect Renzo Piano
Clichy Batignolles will host 7.500 inhabitants (with half in social housing) and 12.700 jobs, and will provide excellent connexion to public transport
The project is also a model in terms of sustainable urban development: the neighborhood embodies the ambitious goals set forward by Paris with respect to land use mix, energy efficiency, greenhouse gas emission reduction and biodiversity

P&Ma is in charge of six urban development projects in different districts of Paris.
The scale and ambition of the Clichy-Batignolles eco-district makes it one of the top ongoing urban projects in the Paris area. It's unfolding on 54 hectares at the former SNCF rail yard in the north of the Batignolles neighbourhood (Paris 17th arrondissement). This mixed-use area centres around Martin Luther King Park, one of Paris's largest, and has all the ingredients of a city unto itself. The architecture of the buildings maximises the benefits of the park, the railway landscape and opportunities to build apartment buildings up to 50m high.
In the north sector of the site, the obstacle of the ring road is reduced, making way for a new metropolitan hub centred on the emblematic 160m-high Paris Courthouse designed by the architect Renzo Piano.
