RRP’s masterplan was for a key site which would link the medieval city centre with the new town. Covering an area of 100,000 m², this development - emphasising the importance of public pedestrianised spaces - would provide regeneration for what is a derelict sector of the town, creating:• a new public centre for Aix
• a new railway / bus station
• a theatre
• hotel / conference centre
• office space
• retail & residential units
The key to the masterplan is a series of core public spaces - piazza, station and flower market - the intent being to provide a strong core of public activity which in turn will create a coherence and clarity for the future development of the town.
