Finalization work will be carried out in 2025, after the Games. Unlike the Athletes' Village, there will be little reversibility work, the housing units being delivered from 2024 in their final phase. The finalization operations will therefore focus mainly on public spaces such as the development of roads, green spaces or the development of ground floors to accommodate future businesses.

The City of Paris made its bid to host the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games official on 23 June 2015. In September 2017, the International Olympic Committee (IOC) decided to award the 2024 and 2028 Games to the two competing cities, Paris and Los Angeles, at the same time, ensuring that each of them would organise one edition. The last Games organised by Paris were held in 1924.
Paris 2024 - The mission of the Organising Committee of the Olympic and Paralympic Games of Paris 2024 (OCOG) is to plan, organise, finance and deliver the Olympic and Paralympic Games of Paris in 2024, in accordance with the Host City Contract signed between the International Olympic Committee (IOC), the French National Olympic and Sports Committee (CNOSF) and the City of Paris. The Société de Livraison des Ouvrages Olympiques (SOLIDEO) is the public institution responsible for financing, supervising and delivering the works and development operations required for the 2024 Paris Olympic and Paralympic Games. SOLIDEO is the contracting authority for the "Olympic and Paralympic Village" Joint Development Zone (ZAC) and the "Media Cluster" Joint Development Zone (ZAC). The works and facilities are thought out and designed with a view to the legacy of the Games, where they will be converted into facilities, housing and offices. To know more about SOLIDEO.
The Olympic Games will take place from 26 July to 11 August 2024 and the Paralympic Games from 28 August to 8 September 2024.
The Olympic and Paralympic works are all the objects and fitting out operations necessary for the organisation of the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. There are a total of 58 structures of very different types: sports facilities, road infrastructure, training sites, pedestrian facilities and new districts such as the Athletes' Village and the Media Village. These structures are designed to last over time and constitute a legacy that will benefit the regions long after the Games.  
The 62 works are located in different territories, mainly in the Île-de-France region, but also in Marseille. Department of Seine-Saint-Denis

The works created for the 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games will meet a twofold challenge: to host this international event in the best possible conditions and to make it a lever for sustainable transformation for the regions. The construction and renovation of numerous infrastructures represent an opportunity to create a material legacy for many territories, particularly for the Seine-Saint-Denis department. For example, the Athletes' Village will welcome around 14,000 athletes and accompanying persons during the Games in 2024. From the Legacy phase in 2025, the housing, roofs, blocks and ground floor will be transformed to accommodate new residents and employees in lively neighbourhoods open to all.
An Athletes' Village is an infrastructure created for the Olympic and Paralympic Games located in the host city close to the competition venues. The Village brings together all international athletes in a single living space with all the necessary amenities (rooms, showers, restaurants, etc.). Around 14,000 athletes and accompanying persons from all over the world will be accommodated in the Athletes' Village during the Paris 2024 Olympic and Paralympic Games. The Village will be spread over three communes: Saint-Denis, Saint-Ouen-sur-Seine and L'Île-Saint-Denis.
The Athletes' Village will be located in the communes of Saint-Denis, Saint-Ouen-sur-Seine and L'Île-Saint-Denis in Seine-Saint-Denis. Anchored to the south in Vieux Saint-Ouen and connected to the Pleyel district on the Saint-Denis side, the Village will be developed within a stone's throw of one of the largest stations in the Grand Paris Express network: the Saint-Denis Pleyel station. Opening out into the heart of the Village overlooking the Seine, it will be linked to L'Île-Saint-Denis by a new footbridge creating a connection between the areas on either side of the river.
The development of the Athletes' Village can be broken down as follows:
  • The Olympic and Paralympic Village BIA located in the communes of Saint-Denis and Saint-Ouen-sur-Seine. SOLIDEO is in charge of the project management.
  • The Ecoquartier fluvial ZAC (riverside eco-district development zone) located in the commune of L'Île-Saint-Denis, with project management provided by SEM Plaine Commune Développement.
The Athletes' Village should leave as a legacy a district open to the Seine Valley, with all the urban functions associated with a city and living district: family and special housing (including 25 to 40% social housing depending on the municipality), various economic activities, shops and services on the ground floor of the buildings as well as the facilities needed to accommodate new populations. In Saint-Ouen-sur-Seine and Saint-Denis, once the Games are over, the athletes' accommodation will be transformed to create a lively neighbourhood open to all and offering a mix of uses. The neighbourhood will also benefit from new public facilities, including two school groups (nursery and elementary schools), two crèches, a renovated high school and sports facilities. With the development of the Saint-Denis Pleyel exchange hub (L13, 14, 15, 16 and 17 and RER D), and the completion of the pedestrian-bike-bus bridge to L'Île-Saint-Denis, the range of services available in the Athletes' Village will increase significantly. The reconfiguration and development of the bus routes will also make it easier to serve the Village by public transport.
Like its integration into the existing urban fabric, the Village must enable the ecological continuity of the area to be strengthened. This operation also pursues the challenges of the "green" and "blue" networks (all the terrestrial and aquatic ecological networks and continuities of a territory) defined by Plaine Commune. The ZAC will thus be exemplary in delivering as a legacy :
  • A 3 hectare park in its centre
  • The redevelopment of the banks of the Seine to link the operation to the river
  • Green public spaces.
A total of 7 ha of green spaces will be delivered with the development operation to guarantee a bucolic setting and rich biodiversity.
