French bashing??? Don't be silly!

I think it is a fair point, what are the decent skyscrapers in La Defense? Please tell me, may be i have missed them!

Your render wont happen for years, the best skyscrapers havnt even got planning consent yet, which as you may know can be very tricky in Paris!

Are we comparing future skylines now?

Without the future skyscrapers what is there already that is of any quality and how do these compare with London, Moscow and Frankfurt?

Frankfurt has much more interesting looking buildings, as does London and Moscow.
you say rubbish!

LD has met a lot of nimbies opposition for phare/hermitage .

LD hasn't made yet its "revolution" like London but trust me LD will have nothing to envy to London

one or two towers had been cancelled but within 10 years i don'tsee how LD cannot take the n°1 position in Europe

Not being funny but you are being very contradictive.

You are just as bad if not worse than SO143 sometimes.

Just play nicely.

Still, there is another thread for this, and you can just point to that.

We're just stating the glaring obvious I'm afraid.

At present. La Defense is dull and nothing special.

If the proposed buildings do go ahead... Then it will certainly make an improvement..

And you say that LD hasn't had its revolution yet like London.... Why not? La Defense is much older than London's Skyscrapers... and London has equally strict planning laws... Catch up chaps.

Once Wood Wharf and the area surrounding the O2 arena start being built on, there will be no coming back I'm afraid.

afraid of what?
Paris historical axis is a concept that destroys all your london area!

London isn't one cluster like NYC, or Paris! Londonthe city isn't dense too.

Some like axis and some like eclecticism which Paris cannot offer. London is quickly joining two clusters together and next few years will be years of resedential towers filling all the spaces.

NYC isn't one cluster either lets not forget.

Canary Wharf and it's surrounding area has ground work continuing on the likes of Baltimore Tower, Providence Tower, Lincoln Plaza etc. As London Fox states you've also got opposite the O2 penisular which has 6 towers around 90-120m in height approved.

Heron Quays West is being marketed, Churchill Place is still U/C.

I appreciate what is happening in other cities but you seem to be overlooking what is happening in London and that's a bit silly.

Exactly... Considering that London has the most construction investment than any other city East or West in the world.
