1 document Published on

Located in Lyon, La Confluence is one of the largest urban projects in Europe aimed at expanding a city centre. Spread over 150 hectares where the Rhône and Saône rivers meet, the site offers an exceptional environment in the city centre, surrounded by water and hills and with a promenade stretching over 1.5 kilometres along the banks of the Saône. La Confluence results from ambitious plans for transforming the area's vacant industrial land into a showcase of the city of tomorrow :
• Smart and sustainable
• Respecting the environment and biodiversity
• Supporting new forms of mobility and the walkable city
• Distinctive architectural design
• Open to all and promoting social diversity
• Economically and culturally attractive
