New green areas will stretch either side of the famous landmark
"One evokes the union of two historic landscape typologies: classical French gardens, characterised by major axes that express power; and French picturesque gardens, as places of artistic experimentation," said Gustafson Porter + Bowman.
"In this urban landscape, green routes and gardens reserved for creative pursuits frame and soften the central axis."

New trees will be planted in One Line's new parks around the Eiffel Tower, to improve the biodiversity of the area. Out of a commitment to tackle the climate crisis, Paris is aiming to hold the most sustainable Olympic Games yet.

The first stage of the One Line project is due to be completed in 2023, in time for the Paris 2024 Olympic Games.
