Just to remind everyone the France Telecom building to be demolished will be replaced by Carpe Diem (most idiotic name ever IMO for a skyscraper), not the Hermitage Plaza Towers.

I know, but I'm just reminding it to international forumers.

Here's a video made by French forumer Karim and showing the most important pojects in La Défense :

The new headquarters of Bouygues Immobilier were unveiled on Tuesday. They are located in Issy-les-Moulineaux, to the south-west of Central Paris. The architect is Christian de Portzamparc.





This is where these new headquarters are located (the red triangle). Note that when these aerial views were taken, the Bouygues Immobilier headquarters were still under construction, but they have now been completed and unveiled to the public.

Mhm, I'm maybe a bit late with this but what's the chance of any of those proposals to actually being built? It are (probably) only visions but Sarkozy has big plans so maybe one of those will actually be built. (?)

The central park-style park with skyscrapers around and the eco-city are amazing. I hope to see at least one of those projects to actually be true!

Those are not proposals or projects. Those are only examples illustrating the ideas of the architect and urbanist teams that took part in the Greater Paris contest. Eventually, some things will be built based on the ideas of the teams, but it won't be exactly what they showed.

At the moment the only part of the Greater Paris plan that is certain is the construction of what will be the world’s longest driverless rapid transit line, a giant double loop of 130 km (80 miles) with 40 stations whose cost is estimated at 20.5 billion euros (30.1 billion US dollars) and that should open in only 10 years' time. The French governement will be in charge of the whole project, not the local Paris authorities whose inertia and lack of initiative has severaly hindered the competitiveness of Paris in the past 15 years.

In order to meet the tight deadline, 10 tunnel boring machines will bore tunnels at the same time all across Greater Paris, something on a scale that has apparently never been seen anywhere in the world before, say the authorities. According to the minister in charge of the project, this giant new infrastructure should boost economic growth in Greater Paris from currently +2% a year to +4% a year when it is completed in 2020. It should generate 800,000 jobs, and bring the population of Greater Paris from currently 12 million to 16 million. You're of course free to believe or not to believe the minister's forecasts.

Here is the latest map of that new rapid transit line for Greater Paris, dubbed the "Super Métro" or the "Grand Huit", with the 7 economic clusters that it will link with each other:

Reaching for the moon...



PS : That's a picture of the top of the New Axa Tower at La Défense taken last week. Exactly 200 meters (656 ft) above street level.

Yes... that's a kind of mini-Paris... the city 20 times smaller. It recalls me the Simcity versions of Paris I've downloaded at the time of Simcity 3000.

The guy who has drawn that map made a huge work. I guess it took him a lot of time. This is quite fascinating.

I also downloaded it, it was a long time ago. I wasn't even in Paris at this time.
Something like 2001.

Unexpected news today. Le Parisien revealed that the tower of Paris's new Palace of Justice, in Central Paris (17th arrondissement), which was planned to be 130 m (430 ft) high, will in reality be 200 m (660 ft) high, i.e. almost as high as the Montparnasse Tower, after the Paris City Hall decided to increase the height of the project!! It will be the tallest skyscraper built in Central Paris since the Montparnasse Tower. You can read Le Parisien's article here: http://www.leparisien.fr/paris-75/le...009-675001.php

You can find full information about this project in my previous post #2046 in this thread. We hear today that this 200m tower will contain 80,000 m² (860,000 sq ft) of office space and courtrooms, and will cost more than 800 million euros (1.2 billion dollars). It will be completed and delivered in 2015.

Here is a picture showing where this tower will be located (note that in this rendering, the tower is only 130 m high; the new project provides for a 200m high tower that will be thiner than the 130m tower appearing in this rendering).

The Zamansky Tower, on the Universités Paris VI et VII campus, is now completed! It is located in the 5th arrondissement of Paris, only 725 meters (800 yards) from Notre Dame Cathedral. It hosts classes and research rooms.

Wow! That Zamansky Tower is amazing! It is unique and extremely modern! And It's in the centre of the historical city. Go Paris!

The Axa Tower under reconstruction at La Défense. Photo taken by the French forumer Breff from the Latin Quarter (the dome in the foreground is the Sorbonne).
