Les Lumières Pleyel is one of the largest projects of the Grand Paris initiative and the project is expected to be completed between 2023 and 2028. Snøhetta has been a lead architect and landscape architect on the project and has designed a 7,000m2 park area, which is located at the heart of Les Lumières Pleyel. Snøhetta has also designed two high-rises, the L8 and R3 buildings, and has developed a visual identity for Les Lumières Pleyel.

Les Lumières Pleyel is situated between the Stade de France and the docks of Saint-Ouen in the Parisian suburbs. The area runs along the existing railroad of and will be strategically placed next to the largest station of the Grand Paris Express metro, Saint-Denis Pleyel. Hence, Les Lumières Pleyel will become an important crossroad for commuters and residents, and will transform the current industrial area and increase the future attractiveness of St. Denis.
