Where will T1 e located?
I think Granite looks great, but is a real mess considering it breaks one of the two perspectives of La Defense. (when you arrive from Rueil Malmaison, the avenue is in the axis of the twins Societe generale towers. It is a real shame to destroy this to put a big building in the middle. 50 m east it would be superb!

here's the building about to be destroyed one week ago:


some of it already destroyed a week ago:

I think it's quite likely that today the building doesn't exist anymore.

overview of the site before the constructions

I must say I love all the greenery! - there is going to be a park that you see and a square(which you can't really see) just at the foot of the tower

Congrats to what most definitely is Europe's best skyline/cluster!
Two very nice towers. As a londoner I am continuously frustrated by the inability of the Isle of Dogs to produce any buildings of interest in the way that La Defense does so regularly, although the rest of London has incredible projects they are so diffuse. Anyhow, may Paris' tallest suburb go from strength to strength!

Yeah, the place is really great and it is nice to see some progress after the relative stagnation we have seen there. Hopefully there will be more on the way, and taller!

Yeah, taller would be cool, but actually there was no "stagnation" , why do you think that ? Except in the mid 70's, they never built more "tall" towers in LD than they did in the last 5/6 years.
