In this time of struggle against urban sprawl, the 90 hectares to restructure along the Seine of the Flaubert eco district are an incredible opportunity for the development of a new well-balanced and pleasant centrality on the left riverside of Rouen
Remarkable and innovative sustainable development
The Flaubert eco district aims for an ambitious sustainable development which takes into consideration the climate change adjustment and anticipates the global warming consequences. Regarding the mobility, a new bus line is serving the banks of the Seine, and the work on the T4 high level service transport has already started and will end in 2019. With time, a T5 line, connection through all Rouen Seine Cité, will reinforce the Flaubert servicing and complete the pedestrian cycle access network connecting the different blocks of the operation. The water management is particularly outstanding. A greenway network composed of large tree lined ditches collects rain waters, stimulates the biodiversity and handles water related hazards. It will be reinforced by the development of a canal offering a viewpoint to the banks of the Seine. This green set will offer a natural connection between the district urbanity, the banks of the Seine and the left riverside city centre.
15 hectares of gardens made up of a wooded hill and green areas, handle former activity impacts of the district while offering a nice walk alongside the river
