Tenders sought for new youth project at former car museum in Fontvielle

youth centre car collection

The site on the Terrasses de Fontvieille that was once home to the Prince of Monaco’s Car Collection has been empty for the two years since the museum moved to its new location in Port Hercule, but the government is keen to revive the address with a new youth centre. The task now is to find the right people or person to run it.

For nearly 30 years, the massive 5,000sqm site was the premises for the Prince of Monaco’s Car Collection. The museum was relocated to a subterranean facility in Port Hercule in 2022 ahead of a planned redevelopment project in the Fontvieille area, which appears to have been paused for the time being.

Now it has been decided that the locale should be transformed into a play and leisure centre for the youth of the Principality, and the government has announced that a tendering process for the running and management of the concept will soon be opened.  

The official call for applications is set to be published in the Journal de Monaco on 5th July. To access the official platform, which is used to announce new bills and laws, click here.

It is available in both French and English, although some content is limited to French language.
