The project :

In 2017 Apollonia pitched to the city a new urban project which was different from the current organizations.

The possibility to talk through many events and cultural meetings allowed to extend the citizens’ needs.

This new project will include: a cultural and associative life, appartments, recreational spaces, sports and more meetup places to develop a social life. 

A hotel has been chosen as an exemple for the income budget. This will bring in a significant portion of the economical profit.

In order to realize this project it’s necessary to assemble a group of people based on their working skills: an architect, a landscape planner, a property management company and most of all, an investor.

This investment is risky because Apollonia has no experience about it. Despite that, the project has been created month after month. The investors have accepted the program. The utopia becomes reality, even though there are still many things to take care of.

 

The funding:

the estimated butget is 25 000 000 euros

the entire project is funded privately. About 10/100 of the budget is set aside for the audience.

 

The program in some numbers:

  • three parcels, a private and a public one : 1700+1200+1800 m2
  • An artistic and participative vegetable-garden of 1700 m2
  • An active and creative walk of 850 m
  • A combination of culture and pleasure which includes:

    – An art-hotel hybride  

    – A European art centre of 770 m2

    – A restaurant of 300 m2

    – About 80/100 rooms

    – A multifunctional space (co-working, dance, bar) of 2000 m2

 

An artistic and participatory garden:

The heart of “Sillon Verte” is going to be the future artistic participatory garden. It’s a place of participation, of culture, meetings and social connections. It’s a work of art.
