After a year of in-depth work alongside the city, the agglomeration and the OPAC du Rhône, AMT, in association with Mazoyer and AGI2D for sustainable development, presented the Guide Plan for the Belleroche area to governing authorities at Villefranche-sur-Saône. Themes to be developed in the upcoming development phase are: an opening onto the Monts du Beaujolais landscape through a balcony park, the connection with the garden city Vieux Belleroche, the creation of equipped neighborhood entrances, freshly inhabited blocks offering new neighborhoods.
The development project for public space of the Vigne-aux-Roses suburb enters into the execution drawing PRO phase. The central square is an emblematic place. As part of this friendly neighborhood, it holds a pathway linking the neighborhood to the Yon Park and the city entrance. It also offers community gardens created with the residents and a platform for occasional neighborhood festivities.

The Canton of Geneva has mandated AMT to draw up an Urbanism Guide for the public spaces of the Acacias neighborhood following the PLQ (Localized Neighborhood Plan) mission that AMT carried out alongside F&M, CITEC, Energys and Biol consulting. While the project is adhering to regulatory steps to become operational, the Canton chose to explore the ecological and user qualities beneficial to public space in order to fully meet ambitions for creating a lively and enjoyable neighborhood in this changing area at Geneva’s heart.
The renewal of the public space project of the ZAC des Facultés in Saint-Maur-des-Fossés for which AMT and INGETEC were commissioned by Grand Paris Aménagement has begun. Located in front of the Varennes Chennevières urban train station, located on one of the last remaining municipal plots of land, the project aims at creating a mixed-use neighborhood and a new urban center. The public spaces, entirely pedestrian and abundantly planted, will offer a place to live and a source of inspiration for the future inhabitants and nearby residents of the Facultés district.
The urban planning agency of the Saint-Nazaire region (ADDRN) has entrusted AMT with the realization of the Urbanism Plan for the Heinlex-Océanis sector. Located at the entrance to the city along the departmental road RD 92, complete with a diversity of metropolitan functions such as the university and the hospital, this peripheral area will become a district in its own right. Reform proposals relating to mobility and based on the new TCSP clean transportation offer, the opening up of metropolitan functions, the accommodation of diversified housing and the restoration of landscape areas, will allow the singularity of this district to be qualified as the interface at the agglomeration’s center, the Loire countryside and the coast of Nazaire.
In Épinal, a meeting is taking place with the residents of Bitola and Champbeauvert about the preliminary project to requalify the two neighborhoods. The first is a large housing project and the second is a suburban housing area, both built in connection with the industrial development of the valley. The project focuses on all the dimensions of the city, from the ground floor and the thresholds of the buildings to the landscape ranging to the Moselle River, including the public places in the heart of the district, so that all feel invited to rediscover these outlying districts.
Several consultation meetings have slipped into the autumn agenda before the lockdowns are reinitiated. In Creil, the meeting took place with the residents of the Cité du Rouher. Built in the 1930s by the architect Alfred Agache, this town has all the innovative features found in the first garden cities. The residents are emotionally attached to it but are just as eager to transform and adapt their housing to today's needs. It is to meet these aspirations that the city of Creil has commissioned AMT associated with ISLA as part of its continuing mandate for urban project management in the Hauts de Creil
The whole AMT team went for a few days to visit urban renewal projects in Lyon: La Duchère, Mermoz, Carré de Soie, Part-Dieu... We warmly thank the project landowners, associations and partners who told us about these project adventures and with whom we were able to exchange about our respective experiences in this field.
The launch of work on site initiates the modification of this large sector at the entrance to the city, a transformation in which the public spaces are the founding element. The objectives are to provide friendlier conditions for pedestrians, to enhance the value of public facilities, to lay the foundations for future construction, to make room for everyday activities and to stage the various stages for the project... The first work phase concerns the Place de la Mairie in Torcy (71). The Pilon Park and the Avenue du 8 mai 1945 will follow.
Grand Paris Aménagement has selected AMT in association with INGETEC to manage public space in the Village as part of an overall urban renewal project in the center of Villiers-le-Bel. The Village is the historical center of the town and is characterized by a delicate urban fabric that combines landscape and architectural motifs. AMT has proposed a measured and site sensitive intervention aiming to reveal the variety and unity of this urban heritage: pathways, courtyards, gardens and squares.
