A little further, always in this same arrondissement, you find the district of Motte-Picquet-Grenelle and the famous “rue du Commerce”; the Beaugrenelle shopping center (open Sundays) and the notorious delicatessen of the St-Charles street; the shopping area of Montparnasse and Sèvres-Babylone with the famous Le Bon Marché. These three major Parisian shopping areas are very different:
•Located on the Front de Seine, the Beaugrenelle shopping mall was redesigned by Valode and Pistre architects in a style reminiscent of the classic Parisian department stores with an oval atrium and colourful skylights providing natural light. It provides an area of about 46,500 sqm of retail and leisure, 110 stores, a department store, restaurants and a movie theater multiplex (ten screens). The stores are a mix of traditional French luxury brands such as Guerlain or Baccarat, international brand names and even a large Marks & Spencer. Most of the restaurants offer a view of the Seine and the roof top of the center is planted with native regional flowers and hosts honey producing
• The “rue du Commerce” is still a major shopping street with many shops of perfume, lingerie, clothing, tableware, decoration and gifts, banks, a few restaurants and cafes including the famous Café du Commerce, and delicate food stores (bakeries, butchers, etc.).
•Le Bon Marché is a famous French luxury store with among others the "Grande Epicerie" which proclaims itself as the largest food store in Paris. Actually you find there many of food artisan shops (fish, cheese, meat, sausages, pastry, etc.), a wine cellar, right next or on the upper floors, of big luxury brands of perfume, clothing, etc…and on the top floor a restaurant under its glass roof.
Park - With its many parks and gardens, the 15th is a district that puts the green spaces in the spotlight, especially with three of them, and one of them the Georges Brassens Park, is just at 5 minutes walk:
•The Parc George Brassens - It is named after the famous singer and poet, who lived nearby. It is located in the 15th arrondissement, near Paris Expo Porte de Versailles. The park is a lovely, relaxing place for a walk with its river, little bridge and belvedere. It also contains beautiful trees, some rare species of birds, magnificent statues, a vineyard (pinot noir) and a beehive. The honey is sold on site one Saturday a month. Parents bring their kids to the park to enjoy the swings, pony rides and puppet theatre. The Monfort Théâtre, in the centre of the park, offers a multidisciplinary and contemporary programme encompassing dance, theatre and circus. Lovers of old books flock to the covered market every weekend for the old and second-hand book market.
• The Parc André Citroën – It is located on the site of the former Parisian Citroën factory. Opened in 1992, with a surface area of 14 hectares, it is one of the newest parks in the capital. This futuristic site, designed by renowned landscapers and architects (Alain Provost, Gilles Clément, Patrick Berger, Jean-Paul Viguier and François Jodry), offers a beautiful view of the Seine and is the only green space in Paris that opens directly onto the river. The park is divided into three themed areas: the Jardin Blanc, the Jardin Noir and the big central park area. Visitors can discover numerous exotic trees and rare plants, two impressive hothouses and many other surprises. The various facilities at the park are great for relaxation or a source of entertainment. Children can take advantage of the ball-games area, ping-pong tables, spring-based toys and toboggans, not to mention the tethered air balloon offering a 150m high ride for children and adults.
• The Petite Ceinture verte - it is a former railway line, which once encircled Paris inside the boulevards des Maréchaux. Disused since 1934, its tracks are now a haven for a rare biodiversity of wild flowers and fauna; it boasts more than 200 species of plants and more than 70 animal species. In 2007, a first section was opened to walkers in the 16th arrondissement, between the Porte d’Auteuil and the Gare de la Muette. Since 2013, a part of the Petite Ceinture in the 15th arrondissement, opened to the public, between the Place Balard and the Rue Olivier de Serres. Some 1.5 kilometres long, its entrance is located at 99 Rue Olivier de Serres. The last section opened to the public (September 2015) is located in the 13th arrondissement.
15e arrondissement - Traditional, quiet, popular, “bobo”, innovative ... the 15th is a vast land full of promises, which attracts more and more Parisians. With large aristocratic avenues next to Ségur, HLM lines close to Pote de Brancion, stunning villas around the Georges Brassens park, a village atmosphere in the “rue du Commerce” and more provincial at Convention or Saint-Lambert ... and with over 230 000 inhabitants, the 15th is a large heterogeneous agglomeration, as populous than Bordeaux,.
The 15th arrondissement is further broken up administratively into four quartiers: Grenelle, Necker, Saint-Lambert and Javel:
•Grenelle is the quarter closest to the 7th arrondissement and thus directly neighbouring the Champs-de-Mars and the Eiffel Tower. Therefore, it houses many hotels advertising the proximity of the Tower. The waterfront part of Grenelle is home to the 1970s high rise residential development of Beaugrenelle, and the eponymous shopping mall. The more inland parts of the quarter are filled with 19th-century Haussmannian buildings, interspersed with some more modern ones.
•The quarter of Necker, situated between Grenelle and the quarter of Montparnasse of the 14th arrondissement, is home to some of the locations named after Montparnasse, most notably the Tour Montparnasse and Gare du Montparnasse.It is also the location fo the famous Hôpital des Enfants malades and the notorious Institut Pasteur and its well known Museum in between many late 20th-century residential buildings.
•The southeast quarter of Saint-Lambert is most known for the Parc des expositions de la porte de Versailles, which is one of the largest and most important exposition centres in France and Europe.
• The southwestern quartier Javel had long been an industrial area of Paris, but has been reclaimed as office, residential, and recreational over the decades. It contains the Parc Andre Citroen, created over the former Citroen factory grounds, as well as the Heliport of Paris in its southern extremity.
Known for its many parks, the 15th stands out also for the development of a center of excellence in the field of medical and space research, with the Pompidou hospital, the transformation of the Necker Hospital, the launching of the Imagine Foundation for genetic diseases, the new research center of the Pasteur Institut, and the renovation of the European Space agency ... in the same way, it is worth to mention the recent installation of the Ministry of Defence at Balard, the famous "Balardgone".
