Behold: a taste of the recently announced €250 million plan to turn the world-famous 1.9km long Champs-Éysées into an ‘extraordinary garden’.
The revamp is scheduled to begin after the 2024 Summer Olympics, halving traffic, creating tunnels of trees and vastly improving the current Périphérique levels of pollution. Designer PCA-stream sez:
…the étoile intersection is reinvented as a public plaza geared towards tourists and Parisians who come to contemplate the Arc de Triomphe. on the avenue, the promenade experience makes a comeback and flâneurs will be able to stroll up and down the historic boulevard in an atmosphere greatly improved by the reduction in motor traffic.
