  The East Area is one of the intensely used facilities at CERN, now serving for over 56 years beams to more than 20 user teams and experiments for about 200 days of running each year. Besides primary proton and ion beams for the irradiation facilities IRRAD and CHARM, mixed secondary beams of hadrons, electrons and muons within a range of 0.5 GeV/c to 12 GeV/c are provided. The CERN management approved an upgrade and renovation of the full facility to meet reliably future beam test and physics requirements. We present new, flexible beam optics that will assure better purity of the secondary beams, even with the new possibility of highly pure electron, hadron or muon beams. The upgrade also includes a pulsed powering scheme with energy recovering power supplies and new laminated magnets that will reduce both power and cooling requirements. The renovation phase started already and first beams in the new facility will be delivered from 2021 on.
