Hi! Here is 3 small photos taken on last August 13 from the roof of the Triumphal Arch in Paris. I was never gone to the Triumphal Arch, the view is superb


Granite and T1 in the skyline

You are right, the right is much more dense than the left, a bit too much in my opinion, and most of the new proposed/aproved towers are on the right as well .

Hopefully, if the two PB22 towers get built it'll even out a bit.

By the way, merci pour les photos Chrispic

It is not the same municpality, at the right Courbevoie and at the left Puteaux.
I can say without doubt that Courbevoie is more pro skyscraper than Puteaux.

Even +300m projects are in Courbevoie, c'est dommage!

EDIT: (?) T1's crown will finally be cladded? Now seems a bit naked...

Sadly neither of these have turned out as good as the renders, they are just so... dark in comparison with what was promised. Dark isn't always bad, but that lovely light cladding we saw in the renders would have looked much beter on the La Defense skyline imo.

I agree.

Granite's cladding matches renders and is very nice, but T1's one *is* a very big disappointment.

Will the crown of T1 eventually have glass? Or some kind of screen?

I would like to know it too, because the crown as it looks now, is a big disappointment.
