According a report in the local press http://www.lemessager.fr/faucigny/chamonix-la-gare-de-telepherique-des-grands-montets-ne-ia933b0n213165 it's going to take 3 years to rebuild the Grands Montets cable car, mainly because the top station is located in a protected area so there are lots of environmental issues.

The Compagnie du Mont-Blanc has issued a press release on the replacement of the lifts destroyed by fire in 2018. https://cmb.eliberty-insight.com/campaign/email/fr/mirror/YToyOntzOjE1OiJlbWFpbENhbXBhaWduSWQiO2k6MzA5O3M6ODoiZW50aXR5SWQiO2k6NTIzODt9 They are planning to build a new cable car from the railway station at Argentière up to Lognan and a 3S lift from there to the Grands Montets.

The star architect Renzo Piano https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Renzo_Piano has been commissioned to design the lift stations.

A major stumbling block seems to have been getting the insurance companies to pay out. The two main insurers Generali (55%) and Allianz (30%) have now agreed, but the RSA Insurance Group (15%) is still refusing to pay the claim.
