So much for 432 PA being "too tall". Imagine Steinway, Nordstrom and Co. in this shot ...

Epic finds OB. it's that time of year when things get really hazy and smoggy. We're currently experiencing a heat wave, temperature highs consistently over 32 C for the next 5 days or so - meaning air quality will be worse.

Well, according to data from January 2015, Paris had approximately 15 million tourists in 2014. New York had 12 million. While below the numbers of Paris by not that much, Hong Kong for the same time period had 25 million tourists and Singapore 22 million. Both these cities lack the historic center in favor of sparse historic buildings scattered throughout the city, similar to NYC. So it looks like your "ancient monuments" claim is completely false.

Quote:
Paris just decided to build its towers in the suburbs (La Défense) instead of the city center. And that was a good decision because the city has too many ancient buildings to be filled with skyscrapers.
Your opinion, which you are entitled to. But data shows that ancient buildings don't offer that much economic opportunity.

Quote:
If you lived in an old European city you would understand that we care with the appearance of our ancient cities.
That might have been true in the past. But the historic centers of the cities in Europe are only on average less than 50% of the total surface area of the cities involved. And all the developments in the past 100 years of the outskirts of the cities are atrocious. I would take the green, clean american suburbs over the outskirts of the average European city. And I was born and lived 19 years in the outskirts of one of the oldest cities in Europe: Rome.

And this is my opinion: the Paris banlieues are possibly the worst looking urban developments I've ever seen.

Quote:
This may be a reason why there are so few skyscrapers in Europe.
And there have been projects to build taller than the Eiffel tower (tour sans fins). But it was cancelled because of economic reasons.
Correct. And cities such as Frankfurt and London have shown how you can let go of some excessive restrictions in favor of new development and create a beautiful city.

This pic illustrates one reason why I wish the top were treated differently. The upper "floors" are utilitarian, having more in common with the exposed breaks in the building yet it's concealed behind glass like the luxury condos. IMO it would've been better if they'd added two more stories of condos (to keep the rhythm) and then have this area behind either solid wall or something more in line with the other open levels. I realize that's elementary architectural thinking but it beats having the top two floors portrayed as a lie, I say.
