Paris continues work on eco-friendly urban development project
Clichy-Batignolles is referred to in its brochure as a “a model for sustainable urban development.” Having been in the works since 2002, the urban development project is evidence of the initiative towards environmental sustainability that the city of Paris has made.
The buildings in development will follow many strict energy guidelines and will make use of sustainable technologies, such as insulating green roofs and garden space, geothermal heating and solar panels. Additionally, the design of the project area limits space for cars, preferring pedestrians, cutting back on carbon emissions even further. The area will feature schools, medical buildings, office space, residential areas and more.
