Best European Skyline is definatly Frankfurt!!
La Defense is nice too and these two towers will bring it closer to the greatness of Frankfurt.

I love them two, with CBX soon finished. We'll have no real future project. Let's just hope they'll anounce new projects.

Under construction?

Granite : the groundbreaking has just started
T1 : They need to demolish some old building first.

Come on. Paris has one of the best skyline in the world, and you want to campare it to London skyline? NO CHANCE. BTW London is one of the BEST city (as a city) in the world.

elletijanii> your picts are nice, but does canary wharf looks like that today? No! So don't compare La Défense skyline as it is now with what could be Canary Wharf in the future to say it IS (present) the best skyline!

If I am not mistaken it is a project by Christian de Portzamparc.

FFS, can't we just agree all the skylines are great? That way no one argues and the French can get on with the construction.

Here's a little London friendliness.

Good on you France. You really do deserve it and the towers look fanastic. Keep up the good work and in time you'll be known for beauty and skyline.
As for Frankfurt, well done. You guys made a nice move in making a well distinguished skyline in Europe. You should be proud.
London, we need to move from the boxyness in Canary Wharf but it's not at all too bad. The city of London looks good when all the projects go up, especially London Bridge Tower.

Remember competition is healthy. It's a race for no.1 skyline between
France - La Defense
Frankfurt - (What's it called?)
Moscow - Diamond Towers
London - Canary Wharf
London - City of London cluster
(Bearing in mind London has two clusters)

Once again France, well done. Nice elegant towers.

Wow, I've been waiting for those towers to began construction. It is great construction finally began. Both designs are very impressive and will make La Defense much more impressive. But I have heard many different height figures.
For T1 Emporis and SSP changed the planned height to 225 m/ 738 ft. Did developers change it back to 185 m? That 185 m height is also shorter than the origional planned height of 187 m. At 225 m it will be the tallest building in France; at 187 m it will be the tallest building in La Defense( 3 way tie); and at 185 m it will be the third tallest building in La Defense and the fourth tallest in France. Which height is the correct one??

For Tour Granite there has also been a few different height figures. The origional design was at 183 m/ 600 ft. Emporis and SSP later changed it to 180 m/ 591 ft. Which one is correct. I know 3 meters isn't a big difference but 600 ft just sounds taller than 591 ft.

Whichever heights are correct for the towers, they will be a huge addition to the Paris skyline.
