It would be amazing if they turned the huge plaza at the centre of LD into a massive park. Imagine sat in that and being surrounded by all these beautiful new scrapers.

It looks a bit boring with almost every building the same height.

What do you mean? What's wrong with towers in London? Swiss Re, 1 canada square, even T42 are better than that.

Newcastle kid, stop being a pain in the ass, nobody forces you to post on this thread, and it's obvious you don't care about Paris and it's projects, so stop polluting the thread.

Hmm, you voice your opinion, and get verbaly attacked here? It seems a UK forumer can't make an observation about Paris without getting attacked. And to add, it wasnt particularly bad, I think you guys are over reacting, and Brunob, I feel you should think about posting comments about teens when to be honest you are making yourself out to be less mature than one. Again just an observation

Oh and by the way it's a shame none of you were able to actually disagree with me, and instead made digs at me as a person instead of trying to debunk my comment. It does like nice, but as I said, nearly all the buildings are the same size. Would anyone actually like to reply to my comment, or are you just going to continue insulting me?

anyway, I didn't mean any harm, just said what I thought. And to be honest I am to relaxed right now to give a monkeys about what you guys say about me, so bye!

Enjoy your thread

As an avid Paris-thread reader like you already now, within a mere 9 years La Défense will look like this. But I'm sure by then you'll find other reasons to denigrate it.

I hate to tell this but the 400m supertall is rumored to be cropped to a max 300m. Some people think that the tower should not be taller than the Eiffel Tower Let's hope all this is only rubbish though.

Dream on

This is never going to happen. Not that fast, and probably not that high.

Cyril, spreading unfounded rumors doesn't really help inform people. If you specifically know of someone who said that the new supertalls shouldn't be taller than the Eiffel Tower, quote your sources. As far as I know, nobody said such thing. On this matter, there is no better source than the director of La Défense Authority himself, don't you think? Two weeks ago, he was asked specifically this question: "With this project (La Défense 2015), are you trying to compete with the Eiffel Tower by reaching the 400m (1,300 ft) mark?"

This is what he answered (I translate his entire answer):
"Of course, there's no point trying to compete with the Eiffel Tower, which has become the symbol of Paris and France since the end of the 19th century. However, I do think that a bit of daring architecture every other century isn't excessive. And symbolically, building in Paris - or at least in La Défense, its business district - a new generation tower with a height surpassing the Eiffel Tower and with a style in accordance with the architectural culture of our country, is absolutely necessary to show the rest of the world that our country has rediscovered a sense of ambition."

The timetable and planned heights were indicated by La Défense Authority. I'm basing myself on that. Everything else is pure speculation.

The guy referred to "some people in the higher spheres". If by that he means Dominique de Villepin, or more probably Jacques Chirac (which wouldn't surprise me), then they will be out of the way in May 2007. Nicolas Sarkozy, as everybody knows, is in favor of the supertalls in La Défense. As for Ségolène Royal, she hasn't expressed any opinion about the project, not that I know of. In any case, there'll be many more rumors until 2015. I'd rather we stick only to facts and published opinions such as that of the director of La Défense Authority.
