Bottiére Chênaie is a new district and landscape transformation in the north-eastern part of Nantes.
The aim of the project was to revitalize a high-traffic area (Sainte-Luce Street, tram line and railway lines) and bring residential, commercial and office buildings together into a comfortable whole. Located in the south-western corner, îlot 24 is now under construction and will have offices, a supermarket, residential units and parking. An axis that draws pedestrian activities to the east is furnished with a small square for relaxation and rainwater collection. The large central block has ground-level shops facing Sainte-Luce Street and a parking area, and has housing units on the upper floors. At the north-eastern end, îlot 23 is now in the preliminary design phase and will be characterized by ground-level shops and a residential tower, which will add a strong, compelling element to the landscape.
