For Christian Estrosi, Mayor of Nice, President of the Metropole Nice Côte d’Azur, Deputy Chairman of the Provence-Alpes-Côte d' Azur Region and Chairman of the Board of EPA NICE ÉCOVALLÉE, "This new district will be a lively and active urban area, unlike the usual suburban neighborhoods. Joia Meridia meets our critera of thoughtful urban planning, state-of-the-art architecture and landscape and will fully encourage quality of life echoing our traditional Mediterranean city. ". According to Olivier Sassi, CEO of EPA NICE ÉCOVALLÉE, "Joia Méridia embodies EPA's ambition to develop in accordance with predominant criteria of sustainability, innovation, landscaping and high architectural quality. This district is a renewed invitation to a Riviera lifestyle ".

The winning team's mission will be to build this new neighborhood over a six-year period with EPA NICE ÉCOVALLÉE, that meets the challenges of environmental and social innovation and urban activity. A place of architectural reference but also and above all a new place to live, this mixed district, endowed with a high quality of use will be exemplary in terms of environmental impact. It is part of the EcoCity and smart grid approach, developed by the Métropole Nice Côte d' Azur and EPA NICE ÉCOVALLÉE on the Meridia joint development zone and the territory of NICE ÉCOVALLÉE.
