Mon Trésor Smart City is an emerging coastal town, situated in close proximity to Mauritius’ international airport,in the Grand Port district, south-east of the island. The project involved the conceptualisation of a masterplan intervention for this development.
The initial proposed offering includes commercial, leisure, healthcare, educational and residential components within a planned urban fabric and intervention. The vision for the development wasto establish a cohesive infrastructure, conservation of biological diversity and the preservation of historical and natural heritage, all conceptualised within a vibrant district and planned approach.
The commercial components included retail, office and logistic park offerings, including a central square, a planned ‘high street’, offices and a logistics park. The leisure component included a proposed sports complex, further promoting the development’s mantra of a healthy lifestyle, and a connection to the sea with a Beach Club. The residential component was planned in a mix of villas, apartments, townhouses and a retirement village, all designed within a local vernacular. An educational and healthcare zone was established to further enhance the multi-use and integrated approach.

Further enhancing the sustainable approach of the development, green mobility was a major consideration and is integrated using cycle tracks and wide pedestrian boulevards along the variousnatural corridors.
