Commerce (Paris Métro)
|Paris Métro station|
15th arrondissement of Paris|
|Opened||27 July 1937|
The rue du Commerce, as its name suggests, is a shopping street in the district of Grenelle. The whole span of the street, from Motte-Picquet to the Eglise Saint-Jean-Baptiste, is occupied by a mix of high-street shopping, amongst which are about 20 national and international brands, and small, typically Parisian food stores and cafés. After major real estate development in the 1990s and early 2000s, the street and surrounding neighborhood have managed to maintain much of their peripheral faubourg or small-town feel while prospering as one of the major centers for population attraction in the 15th arrondissement.
The center section of the place du Commerce is occupied by a small urban park.
Commerce has two access points, one on each side of the Place du Commerce. Both points are entrance/exit types and lead to a central underground hall with ticket vending machines and an information booth. The southern access point is equipped with a street-bound mechanical elevator.
The Eglise Saint-Jean-Baptiste, at the southern extremity of the rue du Commerce was built in 1825, and was massively renovated between 1924 and 1926.
There are two Vélib' bicycle stations near Commerce station, one on rue Lakanal, opposite the station, and one on rue Violet, on the far side of Place du Commerce.
