The video gives you a good idea of what's and where things are to happen.
Obviously a big part of the project comes from the changes in the boulevard, it would be interesting to see if they'll manage to get all of this done by 2015. Because when you think about it, it's only 9 years, and if they do want to build as many towers as on these renders, then they'll have to start soon.

This video didn't really impress me.

Isn't Granite taller than what it's supposed to be? Or we're gonna have a surprised on its height once finished?

The very good thing with the video is that you have many views of the new AXA tower, and it's impressive (more than 200m for sure, perhaps close to 230-250m), and this one will be under construction quite soon (perhaps by the end of the year, if AXA's employers are moved to their new offices as schedule).

I'm also glad to see that the project of bringing RER line E to La Défense seems to be on the way!

Finally, A LOT of towers will be built!!!

Now, we need to see the models they promised (hopefully by the end of the week), and bigger renders of AXA... What a fine day!

EDIT: I'm creating a new "official" thread for Paris-La Défense
