Grand Couron is a district of Revachol.

A postcard from Grand Couron, dated '37

Just east of Jamrock, Grand Couron is a place of impossible contrasts, an island of riches among the desolation of western Revachol. Much of the recovery in Couron is thanks to the thirties, the boom years. As such, it's one of the nicest districts in Revachol West: Tall and handsome buildings rise from the riverside: steel, iron and yellow limestone, with cloud shadows sliding on the facades.[1] However, while it's massive housing projects are popular objects of desire for Revachol's entrepreneurs, these monstrous buildings are empty, with cold winds howling through the empty halls of homes built upon delusions: No Revacholian native can afford to buy these apartments and move in.[2]

One of its most notable places is the Grand Couron Arena, where, in March '52, Arsane-Luc Edelbrock sends the Samaran heavyweight champion, Kostya Mjasnok Kostunica, to the floor.

Not all places of Grand Couron are as well-off. One of these spots is an ill-advised residential area overlooking the Jamrock Quarter, completed by '37. 13-story buildings lined the hillside like sarcophagi, acting like a punctuation mark at the end of the boom years - in '39 the project failed catastrophically, leaving behind an opiate and hepatitis B infested slum.[3]
