Enjoying a strategic location in the east of the Montpellier, Parc Marianne eco-district primarily efforts on the quality of life of its inhabitants. It opens to the Mediterranean by the Dugrand Raymond Avenue, rambla configured to accommodate a new tram line.
Parc Marianne is a mixed neighborhood, combining shops, offices, public facilities, cultural and housing. Along the avenue buildings form a dense facade, pulsating shopping and park side, they stepped to homes and offer views on the vast green lung Georges Charpak park.
In order to reconcile the scale of the city across the pedestrian, the geometry of the frame and the molding of Parc Marianne buildings will meet and interact with the park and green spaces. They create a real piece of the city where quality of life is synonymous with environmental quality. Built heritage become quality public spaces, geometry of the landscape and the ripple of the river are the two movements that have served as guides to the urban composition. Parc Marianne neighborhood surprises with its ability to combine city and nature, quality of life and centrality. This specificity is organized around two main points: environmental quality and a strategic location. Looking ahead, the project has also been awarded with the prize EcoQuartier2011 in "global ecological approach" category.

Alongside the community since 1961, SERM, equipment Société Region Montpelliéraine, implements and supports the implementation of urban projects. In a few decades it gave substance to the development of the city of Montpellier and its agglomeration, experiencing one of the highest population growth in France. For years, the SERM has linked its name to the key achievements that have allowed the City to welcome new residents. This ability to support their growth while respecting the requirements of an urban quality policy, is expressed today through the construction of new neighborhoods such as Port Marianne.

Biodiversity and natural areas
The habitat is designed around a large wooded park of about eight hectares, crossed from end to end by the river Lironde. Wide aisles facing south will add to the coolness of the water, natural ventilation and southern brightness. And the presence of pergolas optimize the interaction between an inner snug organized by each, and exceptional environment to enjoy the privileged climate. To the west, the basin Jacques Heart (future marina) and the Lez reinforce the attractiveness and originality of this urban area, carried around a farm originally natural heritage.
The vast park landscaped by the City is the lung area. Extending the basin Jacques Heart, it creates an axis of transparency between the projects of the City Hall and the Contemporary Art Centre. The urbanization of the area is organized around this axis ...
"Some agricultural plots will be organized around a large meadow and each plot will be abundantly planted with trees. Green and white oaks, almond trees and ornamental fruit trees will be planted on dry land under a strict alignment, however, disturbed by groves of pines. "Michel Desvigne.
Energy management is a strong point of the neighborhood. The accommodations are designed with an objective of low energy consumption. They are equipped with solar panels to produce hot water, photovoltaic panels for electricity supply and for some, external insulation. In addition to these facilities, the area will be served by a district heating network supplied based renewable energy: wood.
