Historically located along the route de Paris, the Bois Perrin bloc is in direct link with the East entrance sequence of the town center. Ideally situated on a hill, the plot enjoys a natural double-orientation following the slopes, towards the Vilaine, to the South, and towards the stream, to the East. The Motte-au-Duc hospital was built on the site after the First World War, designed by the architect Jean-Marie Laloy. The hospital is integrated in a linear East-West organization, in successive strips.
The site, which was mostly preserved in its original layout, apart from some extensions of lesser quality, has become a subject of a discussion, regarding its future, started in 2011 through the Regional Health Plan. The health project for the Guillaume Régnier Hospital Center (CHGR) has brought along a reflection on the transformation of the site in its entirety. This important piece of land, currently disconnected from the surrounding fabric, presents a formidable property enhancement opportunity to reorganize the CHGR while creating a diverse, open neighborhood.
The frame-work agreement concerns the construction of a coherent urban project, from the definition of the project to the urban planning, to the supervision of the operational phase.
