Since 2015 Monaco has been home to a 2 billion euros construction site on its waterfront. This huge figure shows the greatness of the project. Private Driver Monaco tells you all about it.
A new surface out of the water
The work site does not stand on the seashore, it stands in the sea! Indeed, located between the beaches and the mountains, the city of Monaco has difficulty to expand. In fact, it is one, if not the first, of the densest cities in the world in terms of number of inhabitants per square kilometer. To add six new hectares, it was therefore necessary to make room where it was possible, which means by extending towards the sea.
It is expected to be completed by 2025 and will house five buildings and fourteen villas. However, it was not a foregone conclusion. Between safeguarding the local fauna and flora, soundproofing and succeeding in backfilling all the volume of water that this represented, the construction site is on a large scale.
The foundations are supposed to be finished by the end of 2020, hoping that the pandemic has not delayed everything.
Finally, the first buildings will be completed by 2022 and our private drivers will be able to transport you to the extension of the Grimaldi Forum scheduled for 2024.
