it's just the way you worded your sentence which probably wasn't clear to him. You must have meant that Paris is booming with new proposals or something along that line. I certainly knew what you meant.

No, that's not what he meant. It's a sarcasm saying that Paris loves to propose buildings without having any actual intents to build them... Many proposed buildings in Paris get canceled due to economic reasons, of course.

And he's got a point, if there's no construction behind there's no point in proposing but wasting money with silly renders.

Well OK, I'm not from Paris so I wouldn't know that some of the stuff proposed is lttle more than a pipedream, although to be fair I've seen some progress

If they're testing the cladding, it's most likely to build something afterward.

That's what most of us (on the french speaking forum) think as well, but let's be careful though, we can't take anything for granted in Paris...you know what I mean for sure.

Having said that, fingers crossed...

That's good news, but whoever made the diagrams of Phare tower and the Eiffel tower above got it wrong. Phare tower is not as tall compared to the Eiffel tower as in this diagram. The ground below each tower is not at the same altitude.

I have rescaled the diagram to reflect the true altitude of the ground below each tower.

I love Tour Phare. I think it's design is pretty unique and there is not such a high probability for it getting copied. I think it is one of those designs you have to see several times to like it. But I am sure that many Parisians will hate it. Just such a feeling I have with it.

Overall view of La Défense

Pictures originally taken & posted by STEPH35 (french forum)


Tower FIrst (middle) will soon be entirely cladded


Once finished, FIrst will be France's 2nd tallest tower (231m) after the Eiffel Tower of course

It adds a lot to the skyline. It provides a new point of interest, which is good because the Grand Arch can't be seen from all angles.

Note that in the pictures, the height of the New Axa Tower appears smaller than it is in reality. The reason for that is because La Défense is basically a hill, and the New Axa Tower stands at the bottom of the hill, so it looks only slightly taller than the Areva and Total towers, which are located further up the hill, when in fact it is quite taller than these towers. The true magnitude of the New Axa Tower is felt only when you stand nearby in the Avenue Charles de Gaulle in Neuilly-sur-Seine.
