The Olympic Village: At the Heart of the Paris 2012 Concept
Paris 2012ís concept†- "One Village, Two Clusters"†- sets the Olympic and Paralympic Village only 6 km away from the two competition venue sites where 75% of the sports competition will be held. The Olympic Lanes, in their immediate vicinity, will guarantee efficient, convenient travel, with both of the venue clusters less than 10 minutes away.
A Village Designed for Sporting Excellence
Able to host at the highest level 17,000 athletes and accompanying staff , the Village will offer athletes a safe and welcoming environment, with ideal pre-competition conditions. The Olympic Village is designed on nearly 50 hectares, in line with four key concepts: clarity, safety, ease of mind and mobility.
The Olympic Village†- the Gamesí Standout Legacy
The Olympic Village is planned as an exemplary urban regeneration project on one of the last areas in Paris still to be developed. The new Olympic Quarter will keep the memory of the 2012 Games alive in Paris, and will feature such components as low-income housing, student housing, public facilities, businesses and a 10 hectare park.
