The CALICO housing project is located in a residential area in Forest next to Place Saint-Denis, Abbaye de Forest and Parc Duden. The building is located less than 300 metres away from the Châtaignes tram stop, 900 metres from the Forest train station and 1.5 km from the Gare du Midi train station.
Launched in November 2018 with funding from the European Union’s Urban Innovative Actions initiative, the CALICO project has entered the year of its move-in in 2021. All the residents, divided between CLTB, Pass-ages and Angela.D spaces, will be moved-in in October 2021. The community space is currently occupied by the association Rézone in order to create a “place of connections.” The birthing home and end-of-life home will be operational in 2022.
The involvement of CALICO residents will be more important than in other CLTB buildings. The values of mutual assistance, gender equality, and care for others are fundamental to the whole of the project.
