Jean-Zay - Levallois-Perret


Attached to Levallois-Perret City, the Jean-Zay neighbourhood was once a rarely visited hunting area. At that time, the village got its name from two personalities:


  • Jean-Jacques Perret, the first person who undertook a redevelopment project that failed due to a lack of transportation and communication;
  • Nicolas Eugène Levallois, who began making plans that attracted a large number of buyers, after obtaining the rights to Étienne Noël’s land in 1845.


Previously linked to Clichy, the town of Levallois-Perret was recognised as a full-fledged village in 1867. The Jean-Zay neighbourhood owes its name to a famous French lawyer and politician who was a member of the Popular Front government.


Cultural sites

  • Église Saint-Justin de Levallois-Perret: A first church was built in 1852 thanks to a subscription opened by Nicolas Eugène Levallois for what was then the Clichy town. After its demolition, the church Saint-Justin visible today took its place. Its construction was completed in 1911 with the nave and the facade, after more than thirty years of work.
  • Escale: This cultural and artistic space hosts the Levallois Prize created in 2008. This annual event is used as a springboard for young international photographers under the age of 35.
