Urban development

Article L.300-1 of the French urban planning code defines development as follows:

"Development operations or actions are intended to implement an urban project, a local housing policy, organise the maintenance, extension or set-up of economic activities, foster the development of leisure and tourism, create community amenities, combat unsanitary conditions, enable urban renewal and safeguard or showcase heritage, whether developed or undeveloped, as well as public spaces".

As a developer, SEMAPA's role is to design and plan urban projects. It has part of the work carried out, particularly public amenities and spaces, and coordinates the overall project.

SEMAPA also manages the acquisition of land forming the Paris Rive Gauche ZAC (mixed development zone) vis-à-vis its owners. The main one being the SNCF (French railways) with which an agreement has been signed. As soon as a developer is identified, SEMAPA buys up the SNCF's land on the basis of a price indexed to the average sales price.

After purchasing the building rights, the developer entrusts its chosen architect with designing a building conforming to the specifications drawn up in liaison with SEMAPA and the urban planner/architect acting as coordinator for the district.
