PASTEUR

Bordered by the 7th and 14th arrondissements, the Pasteur district is located to the east of the 15th and notably hosts the arrondissement town hall.

Lively and urban, Pasteur is a district in perpetual motion, animated by its many brasseries, restaurants and shops.

Along its vegetated boulevards, the district is constantly reinventing itself to win over new residents, such as with the complete transformation of the Pasteur museum, or the height gain from the Montparnasse tower culminating at 209 meters and offering the most beautiful panorama. all over Paris.
A must-see cultural venue in the district, the Bourdelle Museum, formerly the sculptor’s studio, offers the public exhibition spaces opening onto gardens adorned with the artist’s grandiose sculptures. We are intrigued by Villa M, a huge glass house with a hybrid concept around well-being and nature, the work of the Franco-Brazilian agency Triptyque Architecture, under the artistic direction of Philippe Starck.

A district in full swing, appreciated by these inhabitants for its places of proximity and centers of interest.

CAMBRONNE

It is in the 15th arrondissement of Paris that the peaceful district of Cambronne takes place.

Cambronne escapes the tourist tumult of the city and offers a green local setting with on one side the square Cambronne and on the other, the square Garibaldi.

Rich in leisure opportunities and hosting several schools, family life is particularly pleasant. 810 meters long and offering a wide range of local shops, rue Cambronne stretches from rue de Vaugirard to place Cambronne where bistros and cafés invite you to relax.

Cambronne is a privileged residential urban sector, which harmoniously combines luxury Haussmann buildings and cubic buildings from the 1970s.

GRENELLE

To the northwest of the 15th arrondissement, bordering the very chic 7th arrondissement and its Champs de Mars, is the Grenelle district, directly linked to the 16th by the famous Pont Bir Hakeim.

Until the end of the 19th century Grenelle was a vast sandy plain where rabbits reigned. Today, the district is better known for its large residential towers and for its brand new shopping center than for its historical past of which few vestiges remain. Built in 1905, the essential Passy viaduct, renamed by General De Gaulle “Pont de Bir Hakeim” has since served as the setting for many films.

To the north of the district and adjoining the 7th arrondissement, don’t miss the Swiss Village, today an essential micro-district for art collectors and antique hunters. Built for the Universal Exhibition of 1900, it was at the time a reconstruction of a real Swiss village to become in the 1960s, the village that we know, with modernist architecture, with its glass tiles and its patios.

The Grenelle district offers a living environment where history and architecture mingle.

BEAUGRENELLE

Between rue du Théâtre and rue de la Convention, the Beaugrenelle district is modern and commercial.

Located along the Seine, the Beaugrenelle district is a remarkable model of the post-Corbuséen pavement architecture of the 1970s. Its urban and modern landscape is shaped by high buildings with glass walls offering an unrestricted view of the capital. The Beaugrenelle shopping centre is the focal point of the district and has become an essential shopping address in the 15th arrondissement. Rehabilitated in 2013 by architects Valode & Pistre, its building invites us into its galleries with their organic curves, lit by the zenithal light of its immense glass structure.

Comprising the southern tip of the Ile aux Cygnes, the district provides easy access to this green setting in which the Statue of Liberty of Paris, erected in 1885, can be admired.

With its futuristic architecture, Beaugrenelle is a new district, both dynamic and peaceful, turned towards the future.

COMMERCE

The 15th arrondissement is home to the very welcoming Commerce district in its centre. Its advantageous location offers many advantages to its inhabitants.

The architecture of this district is varied and has a large number of buildings built to 19th century standards. Thus, the suburban buildings rising to three floors have been preserved and contrast with the large Haussmann buildings. There are also original buildings such as the neo-Palladian house which housed the former town hall of Grenelle or the church of Saint-Jean-Baptiste de Grenelle, mixing neo-Romanesque and neo-Gothic architecture.

The life of the district revolves around the rue du Commerce. As its name suggests, it has always concentrated shops, perfumeries and other local shops… The inhabitants benefit from all the comfort and services at the foot of their interiors. It is also along this street that the pleasant and rectangular Place du Commerce is located, with the charming square Yvettes-Chauviré which amply satisfies the bowlers and children of the district.

Vaugirard | Brassens

Located in the south-east of the 15th arrondissement, the Vaugirard-Brassens district hosts the largest street in Paris and the largest park in its arrondissement.

Placed on the old slaughterhouses of Vaugirard and not very touristy, the district hosts pretty dead ends with country airs and reserves hidden addresses, in a calm environment. The Villa Santos-Dumont created in 1926 by the architect Raphaël Paynot is probably one of the most beautiful neighborhood streets, with its houses and studio windows covered in greenery. Several artists have lived there, including the painter Fernand Léger, the Italian mosaicist Gatti and the sculptor Zadkine, a few meters from the former residence of Georges Brassens.

Also, the Georges Brassens park offers country walks around its garden of scents, its apiary and its Pinot Noir grape vines, whose vinification and bottling take place in the basement of the former town hall of Grenelle. Every Saturday and Sunday, the old Halle aux Chevaux has an old book market as well as many activities for children.

A rural area with an airy and residential living environment, very popular with families.
