Paris 2024 Olympic Games: Emmanuel Macron will inaugurate the Olympic village in Seine-Saint-Denis on Thursday

Emmanuel Macron will inaugurate the Olympic village in Seine-Saint-Denis, in the Paris suburbs, on Thursday. An “important step towards the Games” this summer in Paris, the Elysée declared on Tuesday.

The Head of State will attend the “handing over of the keys” by the delivery company for the 2024 Olympics works (Solideo) to the organizing committee. The site will then be formally opened in July shortly before the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

This “athletes' village”, straddling Saint-Denis, Saint-Ouen and Saint-Denis Island, close to the Seine, is Solideo's largest construction site, with 2,800 housing units to be delivered, or nearly 14,250 beds. .

For the president's entourage, who had already visited the site at the start of construction in October 2021, it is proof that France is "capable of delivering this impressive Olympic village on time", which has "mobilized up to nearly 4,000 workers and companions.

And this “in the announced budget”, with “646 million euros of public support which has been mobilized, including 542 million euros by the State, for a total budget of around two billion euros ". The Elysée mentions an additional cost of less than 3% excluding inflation.

It is an “open-air manifesto of the low-carbon city of tomorrow” and a “showcase of French excellence and innovation”, insists an advisor to the president.

Emmanuel Macron will thank the workers, developers, architects and SMEs involved on the site, in the presence of local elected officials and a representation of athletes.
