Press release

PDF Version La Samaritaine duly notes with satisfaction the decision of the Conseil d’Etat which definitively approves the building permit for the renovation of the building located on rue de Rivoli. The building permit for the Seine facing side of La Samaritaine was issued in December 2012 by the Mairie de Paris and approved in April 2014 by the Tribunal Administratif de Paris. Ten years after the closure of La Samaritaine for safety reasons and after many years of litigation, these two permits are therefore now irrevocable. La Samaritaine is preparing to resume this ambitious project for the restoration and renovation of the entire site. The three years of works should generate around 1800 jobs. Overall once renovated, it will directly create more than 2200 jobs.
