The “Pershing” plot and the transferable volume over the Périphérique, Avenue de la Porte des Ternes for the construction of a bridging building, are located between the Porte Maillot and the Porte des Ternes next to the Palais des Congrès de Paris. This currently under-used site will be at the heart of the Porte Maillot renewal operation, a strategic part of Greater Paris, linking the central business district with La Défense.

The exceptional visibility of this plot and the importance of the traffic flows through it call for an innovative and cutting-edge project. Although the terrain currently has a parking lot and a bus station, it is destined to be developed, with the possibility of being extended by the development of a bridging building over the Périphérique in line with the Avenue de la Porte des Ternes. Its enhancement will go hand in hand with the different infrastructure and development projects in the sector.
