An extraordinary Board of Directors of SNCF Mobilités met on Monday, July 9th, 2018 to enter into an exclusive negotiation with Ceetrus to accompany SNCF Gares & Connexions in the major transformation project of the Gare du Nord in Paris. The Gare du Nord will triple in size by 2024 in view of the reception. Ceetrus, accompanied by architect Denis Valode (Valode and Pistre architects) will lead a transformation as major as the one led by the architect Hittorff in 1864. Carried by SNCF Gares & Connexions and Ceetrus, this ambitious project is structured in an innovative way to to allow the first station of Europe to be at the rendez-vous of the Olympic Games of 2024.
“We are pleased to bring this project, alongside with SNCF - Stations and connections, which integrates all the urban issues of tomorrow: the animation of places of flux to make places of life, the positioning of the trade and its evolution, taking into account the needs of users, reconnection with the city. The Gare du Nord project illustrates Ceetrus’ commitment and its ambition to become a global urban actor at the service of the citizens and the city of tomorrow to forge links and embellish everyday life. Vianney MULLIEZ, President of Ceetrus
