The classified elements of the building such as the front facade and the entrance hall are restored, and will be integrated in a new 8 storey project. The building will include 135 student flats, common rooms and a small indoor garden.

The construction of a student residence on rue Saint-Pierre will help bring back housing structures to the district, liven up the area in a controlled way, thus meeting the revitalisation and renovation objective of this part of the Pentagon, as well as the great need for high-quality student accommodation in the city centre.
