In 2006, Caen Normandie Développement, Rouen Normandy Invest and Le Havre Développement economic development agencies launched a truly original initiative by joining forces under the shared name of “Normandy Avenue Caen Rouen Le Havre”.
Thus, Normandy Avenue promotes a coherent, diversified and attractive area for French and international investors and project initiators, inviting them to join the urban and economic impetus already underway within Normandy’s technopolitan triangle.
Infrastructures, new facilities, district transformation and rehabilitation, private programmes… Normandy Avenue brings to light the emergence of major urban projects and the complementarity of its three constituent territories.
