According to the director of La Défense Authority, Hermitage has already done many studies concerning the 323m Hermitage Towers and the site where they'll be built, including the covering of the avenue along the bank of the Seine. Hermitage will officially file for a building permit either in June or September of this year. The administrative enquiry and legal proceedings will then take place, and the building permit should be issued in mid-2010. Construction will then start and should take 3 years, which means the completion and opening date of 2014 stated by Hermitage matches with the legal and construction time requirements according to the director of La Défense Authority.

The only uncertainty being how long it will take for Hermitage to get rid of the current people living in the building "Les Damiers", currently standing on the site.

I'm sure that if we would promise them a free appartment in the new twin towers, they wouldn't say no. Though I'm not sure this would be profitable for the investor.

After Cassandra Cyril, here comes I-love-rien Metropolitan! I'm sure that the French forumer Krapulax, who took the picture, will appreciate your thoughtful comment that adds so much value to the thread.

I'm copying and pasting here a message posted in another thread. Apparently the 284m (932ft) Wilmotte Tower, which was one of the five contestants for the Signal Tower project but which was not selected (it is Jean Nouvel's tower that was selected) will be built nonetheless. It is to stand on a site that is different from Jean Nouvel's Signal Tower site. La Défense Authority (EPAD) has always said that although Jean Nouvel was selected to build the Signal Tower, the four other contestants could build their towers if the developpers backing them pushed for their constructions. Hermitage, one of the other contestants, has already pushed for the construction of their Hermitage Towers, and now Groupe Financière Centuria SAS and Bouygues Immobilier are also pushing for the construction of the Wilmotte Tower.

good news !

the project will be 284 meters high !



The team : this project is presented by the architect Jean-Michel Wilmotte and two partners, the Groupe Financière Centuria SAS and Bouygues Immobilier.

The architect : Jean-Michel Wilmotte, architect, town-planner and designer, opened his design offi ce in 1975. Today, with a team of one hundred and thirty persons of different nationalities, he is working on more than two hundred projects in France and abroad. Jean-Michel Wilmotte, a renowned architect, has been rewarded for numerous creations.



The project : this team has chosen to concentrate on a single building with a totally new and powerful shape.
“One area, three bases” this could be a way of summing up the idea driving this architectural project.
To create the building, three independent entities are placed on a common core, giving the impression of pillars rising towards the sky.
The tower’s appearance of clockwise rotation emphasises the idea of a “signal”, when seen from all directions.
The base of each of these three towers begins in one direction to open towards another. Radically individual and daring, the tower would enhance the West Parisian skyline.




TEAM Wilmotte – Bouygues Immobilier – Centuria
SITE Porte Sud
HEIGHT 284 mètres
AREA 115 000 m² namely
Offices : 50 000 m²
Accomodations : 10 500 m²
Hotel, tourist accomodations: 42 500 m²
Shops, facilities : 9 000 m²
Others : 3 000 m²

Stunning and breathtaking projects for the beautiful city of Paris and its suburbs! No doubt that the French capital will have the best European skyline (in the EU at least...) if it is not already the case...

Congratulations!
