The urban renewal of the Presqu'île de Caen (Caen Peninsula) is part of a vision of the future of the capital of Basse-Normandie in the French Department Calvados, and the Grand Paris. Caen envision to have a role in this project of Paris/Île-de-France urban development. These teams will operate in a 300ha site located between the city centre and the sea. Therefore it is occupied by industrial structures among which some industrial monuments. The project put the light in a new way of "making" city, precisely a new vision of mobility, and creation of conditions of collective use in terms of district heating, according to Habitat Durable, a French blog.
