Un programa amplio y atrayente para el desarrollo de la zona Brossette, concluye con la transformación del Boulevard Vincent-Gâche en la Île de Nantes.
The development of the new Polaris district on the Île de Nantes / island of Nantes designed by LAN, is a vast urban renewal operation that includes the construction of six new buildings with mixed programs and public space.

The urban project by LAN is based on the theory that the identity of a city emanates from its urban forms. The Brossette city block comprised of two contrasting formal systems, on one hand the courtyards and garden, on the other the great housing estates, must achieve a synthesis of these two models, in a way that establishes continuity and creates harmonious interconnections.

The iconic building of this new district, the 18-storey panoramic tower, renamed "360° View" is now completed. The other 5 buildings that accommodate housing, offices, student residence, Vatel campus and business premises will be delivered in the course of 2018.
