The Marseille Fos Port has always contributed to the economic, touristic and cultural development of its surrounding area.
A major player in New Marseille, the Marseille Fos Port, in partnership with the City of Marseille and the Metropole, is working on redesigning the seafront of the Phocaean city. Major recent milestones such as the Silo Theatre and the more recent Terrasses du Port commercial centre are a testament to the port’s commitment to this objective.
Today, the Port of Marseille hopes to breathe a new life into one of its most emblematic buildings, the J1. This historic structure built by the sea, at the heart of the business district and a few steps away from the touristic centre, is now set to sail for a new future that espouses modernity all while being attuned to its prestigious past.
The J1, a link between a city and its port, awaits future generations.
The J1, a steel and concrete ship docked for eternity, is finally ready for new voyages into the 21st century.
The J1 and its 25,500 sq. meters of open areas are waiting to host your audacious and bold project.
The call for projects is opened: LE J1!
