Paris: 10th arrondissement
The 10th is home to two of the major train stations in Paris, Gare du Nord and Gare de l’Est, attracting Brits who seek conveniently located pied-á-terres. The Canal Saint Martin has become the focal point for the changing face of this once hard, working-class neighborhood with shops, restaurants, bars, and a creative variety of housing options: repurposed factories turned hip lofts mix with more traditional apartments. The 10th is noted as being one of the most sought-after areas in Paris in terms of real estate investment because the affordably-priced property here is expected to go up dramatically in the coming years with the gentrification well under way.
Average price: €9,506/m2; -7.0% over one year; +22.4% over 10 years
As the area gradually gentrifies it has become increasingly difficult to find apartments at a bargain price in the 10th arrondissement, particularly because many owners don’t want to sell for fear they won’t be able to upgrade to a bigger apartment. Near the Canal Saint Martin and Place de la République, prices are climbing and the area has a hip, buzzy feel, but around La Villette and Saint Denis prices are still reasonable.
