SEMAPA is designing and planning the development of Paris Rive Gauche. It is having part of the constructions built, particularly the public spaces, while coordinating implementation of the entire project.
Paris Rive Gauche is an urban zone extending from the Gare d'Austerlitz to Boulevard Général Jean-Simon, running along the Seine on one side and Rue du Chevaleret on the other. Around its flagship building of the Bibliothèque nationale de France, new districts are springing up featuring all the usual amenities for everyday life. Housing, offices and activities, commercial outlets, services, schools, universities, public and cultural amenities are all gradually being created: little by little, everything which makes a city truly liveable is being established and integrated.
