Seven sites in total are getting people-friendly makeovers, including tourist-frequented places like the streets around the Panthéon. This means expanding sidewalks and bike lanes, adding more greenery, and rolling out cafe chairs and tables. There’s very good precedent for this at the Place de la République, which underwent a similar makeover in 2013 that was so popular with Parisians the changes have remained to this day.Many of these overgrown rotaries already circle monuments or existing buildings. The overdesigned roundabouts of the State Line unfortunately create inaccessible dead space in the center.
Simplice! Simplice! Tojours le simplice!
