Oops sorry, that's true (but not totaly only a small part of the Ministry of Justice is in Vendôme. The bigger part is actually in the 15th arrondissement et will go to Porte d'Aubervilliers en summer 2015 in a low-rise called Millénaire 3 (architects : Kohn Pedersen Fox Architects).

@parcdesprinces->this is the reason why we are so weak when comes the question of European competitions

Everytime politics produce a waste of time by complexifying everything

What is this country where every simple case finishes in a juridic courtyard?!!!!

What delanoe knows about football to not understand the ambitions presented there?
paris need a stadium sufficient to generate a lot of cash. financial fairplay coming .We see a lot of brits clubs having difficulties wheras producing big merchandising.

I hope qatarians will maintain pressure to have what they want: a new emirates or allianz like.


for the cité juduciaire it is a big project of 160m ok but why this blocky style again?
Justice is a serious thing but when you decide to erect a 160m building in paris why again this angle,blocky iteration?

it's not a contradiction to give a "little" style to a highrise.Even for justice.
Feeling of 60-70's urban mistakes

Qataris should take them to their words. The City of Paris has more to lose than the club in such a ridiculous fight.

No matter the legal name, Paris will always be Paris.

Renovated 'Tour F' to be delivered late february

The 'Tour F' is part of the french Pentagone project (work to start soon). Its transformation is drawing to a close. Next summer the other tower under renovation ('Tour A') will also be delivered.


Tour F, before:



Tour F, now:







It's even more impressive in the flesh...I just love it . The french Pentagone whose construction is to start soon will stand just behind 'Tour F'.

that "pentagon" building is incredible, I wish the MoD here in England could build such a building but it would probably be built 5 years late and 3 times over budget

Nice update videos on the Les Halles project, but I was hoping they'd show some aerial shots of the construction area. It's a massive redevelopment project and a few overhead images would have definitely help put things in perspective.

Today was the greatest day in the life of the 320m (1,050 ft) Hermitage Towers project. According to Le Figaro, the three buildings permits have been officially issued by the public authorities.

Nothing can stop the project anymore. Even if the Socialists come back to power in May, they can't block the project now.

Of course, there will be some legal challenges against the building permits in the courts initiated by opponents of the project, but in general legal challenges against building permits rarely succeed, and I imagine that for such an iconic project the public authorities have taken extreme care to make the building permits legally impeccable (that's why the issuance of the building permits was postponed from January till now).

The only thing that can stop the project now is if the Russian developper becomes discouraged with the length of the judicial proceedings and decides to call it quit, but so far they show no sign of calling it quit, quite the opposite!

The other good news announced today is the last tenant of the Damiers d'Infra building who refused to leave has finally left, so Hermitage can start asbestos removal work in this building. Hermitage says asbestos removal work will start on March 15, which will be the real start of the demolition-construction of the tallest towers in the EU.

The article from Le Figaro:
Quote:
Permis de construire validé à la Défense

Le Figaro
6 mars 2012

Le projet des tours jumelles Hermitage Plaza (320 mètres) à la Défense a franchi une nouvelle étape aujourd'hui avec la délivrance du permis de construire, mais reste en attente d'un accord pour pouvoir lancer des travaux de démolition, a-t-on appris auprès du promoteur.

Le PDG du Groupe Hermitage Emin Iskenderov a affirmé à l'AFP qu'il comptait lancer le 15 mars "des travaux préparatifs de construction", avec le désamiantage de l'immeuble Damier Infra à Courbevoie (Hauts-de-Seine) - sur l'emprise duquel se trouveront les tours jumelles - une opération rendue possible par le départ vendredi de la dernière locataire des lieux.

"La deuxième étape, ce sera la destruction. Nous sommes en train de finaliser un protocole d'accord avec des copropriétaires du Damier de Champagne et du Damier du Dauphiné pour pouvoir le faire", a précisé M. Iskenderov qui espère pouvoir engager les démolitions fin 2012.
