In order to ensure the economic and environmental sustainability of Place Lalla Yeddouna pragmatic interventions at ground level that allow all public services on site to be upgraded have been proposed. New services will help support subsequent redevelopment efforts and must be implemented at the preliminary stages of work when costs can be maintained at a minimum, allowing limited resources to be used most efficiently. Once new services are installed, new surface pavement must necessarily be built. This becomes a valuable opportunity to create a unique design that provides a new identity for the Lalla Yeddouna neighborhood while remaining modest and respectful of existing structures and congruent with artistic traditions based on geometry and patterns.
