Le Portier is a planned residential area, expected for 2015, that will be part of the traditional Quartier of Monte Carlo in the Principality of Monaco. It will be the eleventh modern administrative Monégasque Ward.[1]

History

The project, started in early 2000s and scheduled for 2014, was abandoned in 2009 by the decision of the Prince Albert II due to the state of the national finances, but subsequently new funds were found and the project has been restarted in 2011.[2][3][4] In addition to the new residential area, it is also planned to build administrative buildings, museums and a theater.[1]

Geography

Le Portier will extend between the Port Hercule and the Grimaldi Forum, on an area of 27,5 hectares. It will border with the wards of Monte Carlo and Larvotto.[1]
