Yeah, I thought about that. The location is great by the sea and all; but there must be alot of noise from Jimmy'z and the Sporting Club, right?

I found one more "demolition project" called Les Cigognes. Of course it's designed by Jean-Pierre Lott and it will be built by J.B. PASTOR & FILS.
It will be built on the same street as the building you just talked about. Two villas will be torned down. Oh, sorry, they already are torned down...
Here you get some pictures:

Monaco is only getting worse, sadly...

The city definitely shouldn't get an even more dominant modernist face, it'll lose all its old world charme and glamour forever. It'll look like freaking Benidorm then.

Precisely.

I mean, sure people will probably want to live in Monaco, but tourists wont be as interested in it all if the only old buildings are the Casino and the Palace. :/

I heard some rumbelings about the establishment of a Preserverance Institution, so maybe things will get better.

I found this project thanks to the pictures of Monaco christos-greece and Ciampino posted.
It's called "La petite Afrique" and is under construction. At least one beautiful old building near the Casino gardens has been torn down

Indeed they have...

This is what it looked like before (taken from Google Maps)



Not sure if they also tore down the other side of the block. If so, this is what they tore down:

This is one more picture of the building:


You can read and find more pictures about the building here if you want to:
http://www.simmengroup.ch/wp-content...11_artikel.pdf

But there were ten different proposals in a competition to build that building! And this is an different proposal:



Why didn't they win?

Yuck. That firm should be banned from The Principality.

They should just put a ban on tearing down pre-1930s-buildings.

There's talk about a new building with two museum at the end of the Quai Antoine 1er.
11 story luxury apartiment building. But where exactly will it be? I can't really make out where they're saying.

Have you seen this picture?
As I understand, it will be built next to the bathing place north of Fort Antoine.

I can't quite picture it; we're talking about extending land north of the rock and the new barrier (Where the Cruise ships land)? Very odd.

No, I don't think so. I think it will be built somewhere in this area:

Ah, of course.
But isn't that area used during the Yacht Show and various stuff surrounding the cruise ships?

Oh well. We'll find out eventually I suppose.

Rumour has it that the Tour Odeon has been accidentally built slightly over the border with France. Buyers are currently unable to move in or get their property deeds.

If true, legal wrangling with France could go on for a very long time!

Monaco sadly proves everyone saying: Money can't buy taste, at all.
