Pantin had for a long time turned its back on the Canal de l'Ourcq. Today, the Ourcq district, which stretches to Porte de Pantin is now a key strategic hub. Newly built accommodation and many companies have settled here not forgetting its intense cultural activities.
These formerly industrial suburbs, the town hall district and the banks of Canal de l'Ourcq now play a significant role as a business creative quarter. The new standard of this territory now attracts artists and business professionals. Many industrial buildings, companies and warehouses which were built along Canal de l'Ourcq have been reconverted. One big advantage this quarter has is its accessibility on the Parisian public transport, metro line 5, RER line E at Pantin station, several bus lines and a tramway nearby.
