Pasteur area – Juvisy-sur-Orge (FR)
A disadvantaged urban area
The train station of Juvisy-sur-Orge is a transportation hub with over 1100 trains, 1500 buses and nearly 60 000 commuters daily. The largest train station of Ile de France outside Paris. The extension of the tramline T7 between Athis-Mons and Juvisy-sur-Orge under construction and in the future the station could accommodate TGV trains. Buts the areas around the station do not take advantage of this node of communication. Penalized by the urban separation through the rails and the national highway N7, subjected to population pressure and a growing poverty of its inhabitants, the old centre around the train station has been gradually asphyxiated by the non-renewal of its housing stock. Today the urban renewal is for the district Pasteur a major urban and social challenge. The buildings affected by the deterioration of housing are concentrated in three areas. These areas were defined in order to focus the actions on the housing conditions accompanied by interventions in public spaces and shops.
