Ilot 13 nearing completion

Construction of KAAN Architecten's mixed use complex in Lille, France is in its final stages. Located right along the canal of the Deûle river, the set of buildings will encompass residential units, offices and a group of commercial spaces located on the lower levels.

End of construction is expected in 2019. Once completed, Ilot 13 will be the fourth project by KAAN Architecten built in France including recently inaugurated Institut des Sciences Moléculaires d’Orsay. In addition, the monolithic Cité de Métiers et de l’Artisanat in Lille will open its doors to the public at the beginning of 2019.
