:The Génicart district, located near the centre of Lormont and adjacent to the town’s main urban and interurban network, consists primarily of collective and social housing. Comprising 10% of the city’smunicipal territory, it accommodates roughly 10,500 people and 50% of Lormont’s population. This ambitious urban and social renovation project is organized around four different residences, located on the South sector of the district: Saint-Hilaire, Leroy, La Boétie (105 units) and Villon. Lormont is a north-east suburb of the city and provides a typical example of the large-scale 1960s mass public housing that has proved such a problematic and provocative component of modern suburban France. The gigantic Génicart housing estate is home to 10,500 people, half of Lormont’s population and almost 5% of the entire city of Bordeaux. The estate alone takes up more than 10% of all municipal land owned by the city. Traditionally, Génicart has exhibited all the banlieue’s trademark ills. High crime and unemployment, widespread anti-social behaviour, crumbling fabric, poor design quality, inadequate maintenance, low cultural integration, a lack of social cohesion and pronounced physical, economic and cultural severance from the rest of the city.
