So more towers are likely to grow near these two.Can't wait to see them.

The losing proposals are all better. This design just isnt there for some reason. I think its because the taller tower is so damn fat. Its not tall enough to make that footprint sexy. It just looks stubby and extremely bulky. Classic case of trying too damn hard.

I think it resembles Hermitage Plaza too much. I was more a fan of the Neutelings Riedijk design.

I also don't like that Paris is going to spread their towers. Concentrate everything in La Défense was ideal. It gave a very impressive skyline.

Very weird design, it seems that the tower is being beheaded

That's actually a precognitive design.
That's probably what most parisians would actually want to see happening.

Portzamparc's design was great. With him, I'm sure the double skin would have been terrific.

I think the idea behind the design is good, but it wasn't executed very well. The design could have been better done.

Ivanhoe Cambridge gets green light for Tours Duo development in Paris

Ivanhoe Cambridge Inc., one of Canada’s largest property investors, received permission from the Paris city hall to start building a two-tower development on the River Seine designed by architect Jean Nouvel.

C'est plutôt une bonne nouvelle ça . Ya-t-il des gros risques de recours contre cette tour?
