Completion date for Parisian 'garden tower' complex pushed back to 2020
POSTED 14 Mar 2019 . BY Andrew Manns
Work on the eye-catching Réalimenter Masséna (Recharge Masséna) project, the spiralling design of which has been likened to both mythological and real-life structures, such as the towers of Babel and Pisa, is now slated to begin in 2020.

The mid-rise, which is expected to implement practices derived from the circular economy model, will serve as a culinary hub, community attraction, and urban farm.

Set to rise near the grounds of the decommissioned Masséna train station in the 13th arrondissement of Paris, the 1,800 sq m property will feature a 750 sq m orchard, apartment units, a theatre, a canteen, and a market.

Originally designed by DGT Architectes, the building will now be planned solely by Lebanese architect Lina Ghotmeh, who established her own studio when the firm disbanded in 2016.

In a statement, Ghotmeh called the project a "cradle for new biodiversity" and a "symbol of the diversity of cultures of men and women".

Hertel Investment is spearheading the development of the site, while Bollinger-Grohmann will provide structural engineering oversight and support.

Réalimenter Masséna is one of several urban regeneration initiatives that have been greenlit by organisers for the citywide Reinventer Paris initiative.

The scheme was launched by the mayor in 2014 in a bid to creatively restore Paris's infrastructure and guarantee the city's future ecological viability.
