Jean-Luc Biamonti, CEO of the Société des Bains de Mer (SBM), revealed the main change will concern the centre of the square: the area will now be flattened and palm trees will be used to separate pedestrian areas from cars.
Landscape designer Michel Desvigne, who has already redesigned the Boulingrins gardens, has planned to cover the square with beige paving stones. A newly designed water fountain at the centre of the square will be integrated with the artwork by Anish Kapoor.
The renovation will expand the pedestrian area preventing cars from passing in front of the Casino de Monte-Carlo or the Café de Paris. The idea is to give more space to tourists and casino visitors as well as using the square for events. Some of the palm trees will be planted in moveable pots and can be moved whenever necessary.
“The idea is to be able to host, once in a while, big events. And to use this place for demonstrations, car launches, cocktails. From now on, we will be able to sell this very prestigious space to our clients…,” said Jean-Luc Biamonti.
