To the east of Monaco, a new, six-hectare eco-district is taking shape. Designed by the architects Renzo Piano and Valode et Pistre, the buildings being constructed in the sea will be completed in 2025. It’s an enormous technical and environmental challenge.

Work on the Portier Cove project began in autumn 2017. This new eco-district being built on six hectares of reclaimed land will be home to 60,000 mof luxury housing, an extension to the Grimaldi Forum, Monaco’s cultural and convention centre, a one-hectare park, a marina and public facilities.

This addition to Monaco’s territory will promote the Principality’s dynamic economy, architecture and culture, while staying true to the approach established by Prince Albert II: “Building in the sea while safeguarding the environment”.

To this end, the project is supervised by a high-level independent committee of environmental experts.

The project developer, SAM Anse du Portier, and the builder, Bouygues Travaux Publics, are also employing a large number of innovative techniques to minimise the impact of construction on marine ecosystems and develop the new construction technologies that make this possible.

It’s a huge challenge, with urban extension projects globally mainly taking place in coastal regions.

The creation of this new district represents EUR 2 billion in investment. With this innovative project, the Principality hopes to show that it is possible to reconcile offshore urban development and environmental protection by setting extremely demanding specifications.
