ALTO unveiled at the MIPIM







Both the cladding & urban integration look really promising...

The building permit application was submitted early 2013 & a public inquiry is to take place this year as well.

The demolition of the current building -Les Saisons- is hoped for september 2014, the tower's completion being expected late 2017 (if no ostacle intervenes).

Though, some nimby fearing a loss of a couple hours of sunshine per day are already likely to appeal against the project...

I like the overlapping panels. Reminds me of what we could have had with the Pinnacle had it not been dumbed down and then cancelled. The shape itself is very cool.

I like it when cities start to develop their own architectural style. In the case of La Défense with the Hermitage and this one, if the trend continues, the characteristic could be the top broader than the base.

Alto will increase even more the density of the area.
The densest concentration of skyscrapers in Europe

Never the less, I like the current iteration of Alto too, though I would have preferred Phare Jr.
That came to my mind as well. Lovely design though.

New video and photos of the ALTO Tower, originally from page 375 of the Paris Projects & Construction thread. Originally posted by Kar8117.















I think it looks like most (probably over half?) of the floorplates of the ALTO Tower are taken up by the service/elevator core, just like Tower 42 in London.

Don't forget a basic math fact : in high dimensions (I means higher than 1), most of the volume of an object is concentrated near the surface. The apparently large size of the core in relation to the floorplate's area is mostly an illusion.

Bouygues to build Paris tower being funded by Adia

http://www.thenational.ae/business/p...funded-by-adia

Quote:
Bouygues has won a €200 million (Dh838.6m) order to build a tower in the financial district of Paris that is being developed by the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority.

Linkcity Ile-de-France, the property development arm of a unit of Bouygues Construction, signed a contract to develop the Alto Tower at La Defense, Bouygues said in a statement.

The 150 metre tall tower was designed by IF Architectes and will comprise 38 floors of office space arranged in what the developer describes as an unusual flare shape.

It means the surface area of each floor will range from 700 square metres at the base to 1,500 sq m at the top.

Arabian Gulf sovereign wealth funds have become prolific investors in both residential and commercial property in European cities such as Paris and London. European commercial property investment jumped by a quarter last year to more than €238.5 billion, according to Knight Frank data.

The development will replace the Les Saisons office building and will also include shops, connecting the Ancre neighbourhood in Courbevoie with La Defense itself.

Detailed preliminary designs are expected to be completed this year with site works starting in September.

The project is scheduled to be handed over in the first quarter of 2020.

Adia confirmed the award.
