The Avenue des Champs-Élysées, in Paris, 1.9 kilometers long, will be the subject of a major redevelopment following the Summer Olympics of 2024. Thought in 1697 by André Le Nôtre to extend the Tuileries Garden, it is today one of the most polluted arteries in the capital - more than the outer ring road. The project, entrusted to the architectural firm PCA-Stream , was validated by the mayor of Paris Anne Hidalgo . It has a budget of 250 million euros for its realization.
From Place de la Concorde to Place de l'Etoile, the plans provide for the creation of green areas, cycle paths with permeable surfaces, the planting of hundreds of trees as well as total pedestrianization of the central area of Concorde. To this should be added the installation of fun areas, sports and health routes, the reactivation of “Vacheries anglaises” and historic kiosks and the creation of cultural routes “outside the walls”.
