New York: Brooklyn Navy Yard to become a hub for the new economy

A new 30-year masterplan has been revealed for the 121 hectares of Brooklyn Navy Yard. Conceived by WXY, it includes new public spaces and three buildings to house businesses, especially hi-tech, ship-building or fashion companies, and architects’ or cinema studios. Innovation will also be at the heart of the design of the buildings themselves, with vertical integration in the same building of all a manufacturer’s needs and functions. Farm production will be developed on a roof terrace. 8,500 people are presently working on the site. It is hoped to create 20,000 jobs by 2020 and 30,000 between 2030 and 2040.

Lyon: Port Edouard Herriot celebrates its 80th anniversary and positions itself as a key local player in its own right.

Operated by CNR and located in the Gerland district at the heart of the Lyon conurbation, the port naturally generates value for the Rhône corridor and promotes modal shift. As such, it contributes fully to the ambitions of the Port of Marseille, but it also has a role to play in the energy transition and as a partner for certain urban public services. Like many river ports facing pressure due to a lack of available land, there remains a vital need for Port Edouard Herriot to continually strengthen its links with the city and its residents.
