AREP will be steering the development of the new international terminal (Cap Janet) on the east docks of the port of Marseilles. The key element of the project is the 1,800 sqm ferry terminal, which will be dedicated to maritime traffic with North Africa. 

The development of the new ferry terminal will allow passenger traffic with North Africa to be handled on a single site by 2020. Currently, two distinct sites serve the same purpose: Cap Janet (Morocco and Tunisia) and Joliette (Algeria).
The team of architects and urban planners of AREP Méditerranée worked hand in hand with the Bidding department. Their thorough understanding of the region was key to winning this project, which is a major operation for both the city of Marseilles and the organisation managing the port (GPMM).
The terminal will be located next to the warehouse 16, which will be transformed into a two-storey boarding facility (16,000 sqm). A road network and platforms will be constructed over a 20 ha zone as part of the project.

Client: Grand Port Maritime de Marseille (GPMM)
