The "Gare Basse" neighborhood, located in the heart of the city at the crossroads of multiple transport infrastructures, represents a zone that is now inert and surrounded by a series of constructed and natural obstacles: a high-speed train station and railroads to the east, ramparts of the city, an arm of the river and the A35 highway to the west.


Looking ahead to 2030, the Phosphore teams aimed to reduce the use of land area and the nuisances associated with transport infrastructures while connecting this neighborhood with the urban fabric of the city center and its agglomeration. A multi-modal transport hub associated with stores and a wide range of services make it a place for meeting and living that supports the renewal of the neighborhood.
