Located on a former SNCF wasteland called the Charcoal Court, the complex is enclosed between the road to Avignon, the railway line and the Saint-Baudile cemetery. The Amphi and the Atrium, delivered in December 2020, offer 258 accommodation units including 70 families (the Atrium) and 188 students (the Amphi). The two buildings are located in a wooded area of one hectare and they have secure parking spaces. The Amphi is also equipped with an e-concierge service, a laundry and the studios are served by the Tonnelles bus station.
This former Nîmes railway site is enjoying a second life with this project, which is part of the transformation of the Avignon route where Tram line 2 is deployed. ” I am happy because this project proves that Nîmes is developing and its residences are the link between the city center and the Chemin-bas district of Avignon, said Jean-Paul Fournier. Families and students will find a quiet place close to the heart of the city here. Nîmes has not finished developing and shining through France and the world. ”
