Haha, sorry but I cannot hide my hate for Tour Phare.. I think Paris deserves far better.

And I will not argue about it either, this is just my view.
Is this the final design? If so:

This one will be getting an extra floor.

Quote:
Cash in with extra Walkie-Talkie floor

Is Land Securities taking the Michael? Or has the UK's biggest property developer been given the quiet nod by the City of London to ask for an extra floor of 51,000 sq ft to the 37-storey Walkie-Talkie at 20, Fenchurch Street?

What used to be Kleinwort Benson's offices contained just 168,000 sq ft of space over 25 floors. There will be 690,000 sq ft to rent out at about £60 per foot, if LandSecs gets permission to add another floor to the swollen-headed Walkie-Talkie it is now building with new 50/50 partner Canary Wharf.

LandSecs says the additional space "adds efficiencies both to the scheme's ongoing construction and the performance of the building for potential tenants". Yeah, yeah - and at least £3 million to the rent roll and £60 million to the value of a tower already nearly four times the size of what stood there in the first place.Recommendation: buy LandSecs - and a few shares in Canary Wharf, which may well have put it up to doing an Oliver and asking for more.

Walkie Talkie offices 'to be partly acquired by City of London'

The Walkie Talkie office tower could be set to become partly acquired by the City of London. Planning officials at the council voted in favour to obtain a stake in order to protect the skyscraper from rights of light injunctions, Property Week reported.

Speaking to the resource, a spokesman for the City of London said the Walkie Talkie tower at 20 Fenchurch Street is important to the financial district. "The City of London has a long-standing planning policy of promoting development in order to maintain the supply of - and to match the demand for - high-quality office space in the Square Mile," he stated.

Developments in the City could have been hindered should planning officials have voted against invoking special powers to ensure that construction of offices get the go-ahead, even if neighbours are concerned their light will be partially blocked.

Surveyors recently told the City planning committee that they wanted section 237 of the Town and Country Planning Act to be put in place so that the 275,000 sq ft City offices development at 1 Mitre Square could go ahead, the resource reported.

If building should be granted permission, 32 properties would suffer from light loss, Gordon Ingram Associates claimed.
