The conversion of the Macdonald warehouse in Paris’s 19th arrondissement on the edge of the ring road is a major part of the Paris Nord Est urban renewal project, which will create a new neighbourhood in 2015.

As part of the vast programme, two consortiums formed by VINCI Construction France built a 550 metre long base over which 1,126 housing units spread over 15 buildings will be built. A 40 metre long "bridge" building was the first structure built to accommodate construction of the light rail line roadbed along the site.
