PARIS — La Samaritaine, the landmark Paris department store shuttered in June 2005 because it did not meet city fire safety standards, will be reborn as a complex combining retail, offices, social housing and possibly a hotel.
Owned by luxury giant LVMH Moët Hennessy Louis Vuitton, Samaritaine said Thursday the City of Paris has given a green light to its mixed-use proposal for the hulking, Art Deco-style building, located between the Seine River and the Rue de Rivoli.
