The 23 sites, many of them emblematic of Paris’ history, are located in nine of Paris’ twenty arrondissements and they are all very different in terms of their layout and characteristics, thereby enabling a multitude of possible responses from candidates.

The purpose of this Call for Innovative Urban Projects is to select innovative urban projects or constructions with a view to their practical implementation in the short term in the Paris area. The intention is that these projects should be developed on sites identified within the framework of this call  for projects.

These sites form a diverse supply of land and housing, spread over the Paris area and rapidly available. They comprise land and property owned by the City or its partners – social housing landlords or developers. For each of them, a specific procedure will be implemented so that the winning innovative project can be brought to fruition. For the sake of convenience, in the remainder of this document, the term “assignment of rights” means transfer of full ownership, assignment of real rights or any right to the construction volume resulting from either an emphyteutic lease or any other scheme intended to  dissociate the building from the land.

The proposed urban innovation will need to cover both content and form. For the content, innovative responses should be provided in terms of project content, programme and technical specificities. The form relates to proposed procedures, management methods, the form of partnerships and consultation, management procedures for deadlines and different project phases, and financing arrangements.
