Paris, France

Bonjour French Property Insider Subscriber,

Today’s FPI is focused on the past, the present and the future of Paris. We live in the present in a city and a country with a formidable past, dating to pre-historic times, yet the architects of today have a sharp eye on the future.

Just yesterday, very much a part of our ‘present,’ the owners at 9 Place des Vosges granted us permission to change the facade of their 400 year-old structure…clearly a move toward the future. Read all about the five hour meeting that changed the course of history in today’s issue.

President Nicolas Sarkozy has big plans for Paris’ future, to make his mark on the landscape, as had his predecessors the way the Centre Pompidou, the Pyramide du Louvre and the Bibliothèque Nationale de changed Paris and reminds us all of the presidents who were responsible. Learn more in today’s issue.

Remnants of the distant past crop up in the present in Saumur, Loire Valley, thanks to a 5,000 year-old stone dolmen once a prehistoric burial chamber, now for sale on the property market! It’s a flash from the past…and well worth a read.

Tomorrow is May Day, Labor Day, Play Day and Pay Day.

The Purpose of Permissions at Place des Vosges
By Adrian Leeds

It was a long-awaited "Assemblée Générale" — the annual meeting of the 9 Place des Vosges "copropriété" (homeowners association). We had been preparing for it for months, knowing full
well that the outcome of the m
eeting would determine the future for the renovation plans of "Le Palace des Vosges," the Fractional Ownership property designed for 13 lucky owners.

From the outset, we had decided to change the windows and doors of the apartment, as well as the doors of the garages. Making any exterior change requires not only the approval of the Architects des Bâtiments de France (ABF, www.archi.fr/ANABF/), but also of the Direction de l’Urbanisme de Mairie de Paris (DU). This is largely due to the nature of the property as historic.

An architect came to survey the property and made recommendations. Our OWN architect made drawings to reflect their recommendations for further approval by the Mairie. The style they suggested was "atelier," similar in design to what already existed in the building.

Although it may seem very simple and straightforward, the whole process took many months to accomplish and the ‘hitch’ when all was done is that the city does not issue a ‘permis de construire," but in fact, does the opposite — nothing, so that if you hear nothing from them, then you have their approval!

It’s a bit backwards way of looking at the permit required to present to the copropriété, which in actuality has the final approval. Without the accord of the other owners, nothing could be accomplished, and even the work to get the approval of the ABF or the DU would have been for naught.

We did NOT feel comfortable ordering the production of the massive glass and aluminum structures without this approval, nor did we want to go the assemblée without something in writing from the DU. Getting an "Attestation" from the City Hall was no easy task, but it was accomplished, just the morning of the assemblée!

We had other issues to request — the ability to add a lantern over the entry door along with a switch so that leaving and entering the apartment would always be well lit, and the approval to add planters along with an outdoor table and chairs.

Interior Architect Martine di Matteo attended the meeting with me to ensure success in getting all the necessary approvals. It was held in the conference room of the Académie d’Architecture (www.archi.fr)on the first floor at 9 Place des Vosges. The large windows overlooked the Place des Vosges, outfitted with an enormous table and chairs around the table. The Place was sunny and the linden trees full with bright green leaves.

As the owners filed in, they greeted one another and took a seat. It seemed like a normal meeting, just like the many I’ve attended over the years, but it wasn’t. It was a cast of characters, and as Martine remarked, much like a Fellini movie.

There was the American woman who owns the Gallery Nikki Diana Marquardt, which has an entrance both on rue de Turenne and Place des Vosges as well as about 20 owners ranging from elderly well-suited French men (one wearing an ascot) to young women in jeans and all those in between. The meeting was led by the owner of Dauchez Copropriétés, the managing agency known as the "Syndic," and the woman who handles the account, with whom we have had direct dealings.

I will tell you that it was the most charged-up meeting I have ever experienced, lasting almost five hours. There were 34 items to discuss on the agenda and ours was added to the end, meaning we must stay till the end to see it through. The owners were clearly disgruntled with the service they were getting from the agency, and because of their lack of management skills, one of the owners virtually took over the running of the procedures in order to move it along more quickly.

Several really productive things came out of the meeting however. First, we got the approval to renovate the windows and doors of the apartment and garages! Secondly, we made friends with the owners in our building (building I) who were thrilled to hear of our plans to add a lantern and plants in the courtyard…they will surely be of assistance to get it approved. And thirdly, we were able to maintain the existing cellar as owned by the copropriété, but with access to it only via our apartment with permission…in essence, free ownership.

Luckily these meetings only transpire one time a year. And hopefully next year, we will need no further permissions! But we felt very privileged to be a part of the co-ownership of such an illustrious group of residents…as in the Place des Vosges, and to have gotten so much accomplished!

Sarkozy to Unveil Designs for Paris of the Future
By Elizabeth Pineau

Tuesday April 28, 2009

PARIS (Reuters) – Futuristic glass towers, monorails high above the traffic or an artificial island in the Seine are among 10 projects that could transform Paris in the decades ahead.

French President Nicolas Sarkozy is due to outline on Wednesday what is billed as one of the biggest redevelopments of the French capital since Baron Haussmann carved grand boulevards out of the city in the 19th century.

The projects included in an initial selection go on display in the Cite de l’Architecture et du Patrimoine, the Paris architectural museum where Sarkozy first called for a "bold" design overhaul in September 2007.

Britain’s Richard Rogers, who designed the 1970s landmark Pompidou Center, Antoine Grumbach, a French architect who wants to link Paris with Le Havre on the Atlantic coast, or Roland Castro, who envisions a new business center built on an artificial island in the Seine have presented designs.

The projects could enable Sarkozy to leave Paris with the kind of "Grands Travaux" (Major Projects) beloved of past presidents such as Francois Mitterrand, patron of monuments such as the new National Library or the glass pyramid at the Louvre.

But pressing economic, environmental and demographic constraints facing Paris and the surrounding Isle de France region are driving the plans…

…The redevelopment is seen as a chance to create a greener city with local power generation and recycling stations buried beneath parkland and tight-knit tram and light rail networks.

Among the plans on the table is an unmanned underground rail link between future business centers and central train stations and airports and a new metro network binding what is now the city of Paris with the suburbs by 2020…

London Invaded by Real Estate Enthusiasts


The Hottest New Trend in Lifestyle Property is Fractional Ownership. A world forum in London attracted hundreds of real estate agents, developers and service professionals to see the future of real estate through this two day event. World Class Group CEO, Michael J. Tolan, gives his reaction to the forum

A World Forum on Fractional

Ownership i
n London, England, was sold out do to the overwhelming popularity of the hottest new trend in real estate.

Delegates from Dubai to Delhi, USA to Mexico swarmed to take hot market tips from fractional ownership gurus who were hand picked by Fractional Life, the organizer, to share experiences and provide guidance to the delegates…

…Fractional Ownership, unlike its predecessor vacation timeshare, offers the investor a real equity stake in the asset. In most cases the assets are vacation properties or unique residences in idealistic locations.

Fractional Ownership is a concept that developed in the US and is clearly being looked at closely by dozens of investor developers who realize its potential long term benefits as a business model. In simple terms, it allows the participants to co-own an asset and to share the costs and to benefit from maximum utilization…

…Consumers will enjoy co-owning an apartment in Paris or a castle in France but will only pay a fraction of the cost, and in most cases share in the deed registration or beneficial ownership rights. Typically a 1/8 interest would allow the fractional owner six weeks usage a year.

"Most of all delegates agree that Fractional Ownership will become a household word in Europe and in the Middle East within the next five years because it’s the most sensible method to acquire amazing experiences without shelling out all the capital," said Michael J. Tolan, CEO World Class Group…

…"Fractional Ownership is an up-market product with integrity and taste and will heavily impact the revitalization of real estate sales now and in the future," added Tolan. "This product and its various forms of conveyance and structure defy the economic situation due to its consumer friendly value proposition and in fact, will thrive in these conditions," he said…

For sale: Des Res with Burial Chamber
By Jon Bryant


Jon Bryant visits a property in the Loire Valley with its own 5,000-year-old tourist attraction in the garden

Sylviane Normand and her husband, Pascal, have been trying to sell their property in Saumur on the Loire for three years, but it’s proving a challenge. The reason? What the French call a "nuisance", like living next door to an abattoir. Yet their nuisance is probably one of France’s most extraordinary monuments which would make
new-age druid go weak at the knees.

Looking out of their kitchen window is a 23-metre long, three-metre high, 5,000-year-old stone dolmen – a prehistoric burial chamber.

"It’s the largest in France and it’s in our garden," says Normand. "We are looking to sell it because it’s not financially viable. My husband has had to go to Paris to find work and so I’m stuck here with the dolmen."

Forcing apart chestnut trees and the backyard tulip beds, the burial chamber is a remarkable – yet wholly incongruous – addition to an elegant, bourgeois town better known for its cavalry academy, sparkling wine and as the birthplace of Coco Chanel.

A decade of looking after the monument has ground down the Normand family’s enthusiasm for their view. "The problem is, we can’t come up with a price. The ‘professionals’ don’t know what it’s worth and so if someone shows an interest we can discuss a figure."

They have about 2,000 visitors a year and charge €3.50 (£3.15) for adults and €2 for children…

"The English love it. I think it’s more in the Anglo-Saxon nature to like things like that," Sylviane says. "Here, it’s all about the chateaux and French culture."

…To satisfy the curiosity of the dolmen’s visitors, the Normands have a small museum in what would be their sitting room. Many ancient sites were looted for quarry, and farm owners would try to bury menhirs so they could use the land without restrictions. But the Great Dolmen of Bagneux is simply too big to touch. "They reckon it was put there about the same time as the first pyramids in Egypt," she says…

…The Normands are selling the dolmen with the bar-brasserie they run next door and two neighbouring apartments. Average house prices in Saumur are around €1,500-2,000 per sq metre, but Normand says the dolmen has been an obstacle for potential buyers…
