VAILLANTE 1st DISTRICT
Third stop : Le Center Pôle.

First : thanks for your great comments…

SO…

In the beginning of the eighties, the city of Vaillante wanted to create a major transportation, commercial and business pole in the east of the first district. So was build le Center Pole : a huge structure that included a mall, a transit subway station and offices buildings. This combo has been constructed right in the middle of traditional residential buildings.

In the nineties, a plazza has been created with a movieplex and other stores. A big and modern hotel has been also constructed in front of that plazza.

Today, Le Center Pôle is still a very attractive place where a lot of people transit every days for their shopping, work and tourism. It looks a little bit oldie now and some people of Vaillante would like to see it disappeared cause it looks so ugly in the city landscape. Le Center Pôle Side was inspired by the Montparnasse area in Paris : a mall, a skyscraper (the tallest of inner Paris) and a massive train station that was build in the eightees right in the middle of a traditional Parisian urban area.

Where is Vaillante Le Center Pôle in Vaillante 1st District ?
