Thanks to all.
Noyon is a small (15 000 inhabitants) * but nice town, we even have a cathedral, +++
https://www.youtube.com/results?search_ ... +cathedral
http://www.oisetourisme.com/la-cathedrale-de-noyon the oldest of its type in the North of France
Charlemagne was crowned there.
Later Hugues Capet, king of the Francs.
That IS something in terms of French history.
http://www.ville-noyon.fr/-Les-temps-fo ... e-de-.html

Accomodation is cheap, food well ... it is France, so, need I say more ?
Access is easy from Paris. Train or A1 (motorway 1) for 90% of the journey.
We have a lovely town centre, lovely buildings (real old stones, not the massive bricks as you can find furher North) a bowling, a movie theatre with latest technology inc Atmos sound, a lot of sport equipments, open markets, a huge commercial area with big Auchan supermarket, and so on ...
To me it is lovely, and price of the real estate is just so damn low (or maybe it is the true price ; and in fact it is in Paris that is this so damn high :wink: 1 square meter in Paris, on average, costs the price of 12 square meters in Noyon, on average)

I already met the Mayor and well he is happy if this can happen.
Also contacts with the hospital about best type of company to make donations (charity).
Unemployment is high here, it is one of these cities where industries have closed over the past decades.
A lot of people take the train everyday to go and work in Paris or the suburbs.
We have at last the project of a new canal passing nearby and it should wake up a bit the area for a couple of years during the construction, and create some jobs, which is, of course, excellent news.
https://fr.wikipedia.org/wiki/Canal_du_Nord_(France)
Sorry you will have to use Google translate.

* with 6 000 youngsters IIRC as all colleges and schools are in this town and not in the surrounding villages.
+++ less than 10 minutes on foot from my buildings. Noyon was more important than its nearby (30 kms) Compiegne town, a few hundred years ago.

Note : maybe I need to add that I have 2 houses so full of retro machines that I can hardly circulate ... and I am not joking, this is near needing psychological treatment. I must aplogize each time the postman or postwoman brings me some parcels.
And the guys from UPS or DHL well, we are almost pals :lol:
On stardot they had opened a thread for me 'ZAP (Zarchos Acorn Pile ...') : http://www.stardot.org.uk/forums/viewto ... zap+museum
I am known as the strange guy in the street :shrug: with a Sinclair C5 8O
Even one of my bathrooms is full of parcels.
I am going to sell one of them to get some cash for the project.(house, not bathroom !).

Now let's be frank : I am not a weirdo.
If the museum and all other ideas work, that is great.
If it fails I already have several ideas of what to do with the buildings : I am a pro in real estate investment, so, like a cat, I will always fall on my feet, not on my back. Like I (with partner + bank) did for 10 years in the heart of Paris, dealing with entire buildings in the 1500 - 2000 square meters area (and with tenants, which is the worst. But I am quite good at understanding laws and dealing with lawsuits).

All this to say if some people give me a hand for my projects, I wasn't born yesteday, and yes, I mean business.

Great project. But it will be sporty to renovate the locations for an opening in 2019! Anyhow, thumbs up, I'll be there for opening ceremony if it fits in my schedule.

Yes that is right.
Sporty for the renovation works, and too short for early 2019, as for the needed parking lot for xxx vehicules, there is the very next building to my place which has been bought by the town, to extend the parking lot of the railway station ; it means if/once built I do not have to create my own parkig lot in the piece of land (with buildings) I have just bought. (Local rules about real estate impose creating parking lot for this or that business, receiving up to xxx people, which is my situation, IF no parking lot at a minimal distance of xxx meters is available).
This is excellent news as I didn't know that when I signed the pre contract (commitment to buy the buildings) 3 months ago.
I need to know how fast these car park lots will be built (or at least financed for and voted), as my building permit will, of course, take all this into account.
I hope I will not be flying drones for too many years before starting my real projects :?

Why ?
It will be great for demoparties : you haven't seen everything in the vid.
There is even a shed vast enough to install all the needed equipment for a real (French restaurant ;-) ) kitchen, and there is far enough space in the yards to sunbath too and have a nice beer and install dozens of BBQs.
The ground surface where are the buildings you have seen is 4487 square meters :cheers:

Hello Zarchos, I wish you a really big success in this endeavor ! Bonne chance ! (comme on dit chez nous ;) )

As it is not so far from my birthplace, I will follow this project closely. Keep us informed ;)
