Monaco in 2025

A dynamic city state, Monaco is planning for the future in order to cement its position on the global stage. The next decade will see expansion and land reclaimed from the sea, ambitious urban renewal projects and interests outside Monaco’s borders. Three projects alone will bring two new marinas, new cultural facilities and public spaces, and more than 100,000sqm of residential and commercial floorspace.

Future building - Sporting d'Hiver

Redeveloped as a whole new city quarter, Sporting d'Hiver will maximise use of an iconic site on Casino Square. The mixed-use scheme will provide an art gallery, conference centre, and residential and commercial space, all set within a high-quality public realm.
