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 arrondissement 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.
Located on the right bank of the River Seine, it contains two of the six Paris railway stations, considered among the busiest in Europe, built in the 19th century.
As the area cleans up (or, to some, gentrifies) it has become quite difficult to find apartments at a reasonable 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.
