Since they're not destroying the old nice buildings the city is not gonna change that much. Only some parts will, and they're not in the historical areas. Actually they tend to be in areas that are already filled with much uglier boxes.

Plus this thread mostly highlights the big projects, there are dozens of minor projects, some like the one you're featuring, that are just not mentioned here.

Edit: Kissme answered faster than me :p

What they're doing Paris isn't actually in Paris. Most of what's going on in The City of Paris is renovation.

Outside of The City of Paris is where the major projetcts are happening. It's not like we're destroying the inner Paris. The stuff that is being built in my opinion looks great for the suburbs (which will soon be included in The Grand Paris Metropole).

Hm...to be honest, the buildings kisssme posted are a little too over the top and kitschy for my taste. They remind me of seaside resort hotels in the Mediterranean. The buildings in Berlin adhere to more classical/traditional proportions.

But thanks for the pictures!

Ah, I see... I'm glad, these ugly, modern boxes are not build in the historic Paris. So this thread is more about the wider metropolitan area?

I pass by this all the time on the metro (well the old HQ) I think it's still nice, but this will be built in the same spot? And when?

Yes, since most of the developments are happening there and this will soon be included in the new Métropole du Grand Paris (new city limits) as of 1 January 2016.

what i have posted is very classical for paris.

This is kitschy (Plessis robinsson) :

You notice the evolution? From dangerous to happy.

I have absolutely no idea of what that means!

Are you sure that's the winning project? I'm afraid this was one of the projects.

(Unfortunately) I think the final design is this one:
