Not only Phare is confirmed but so is Hermitage Plaza.

They're going to build that stadium in a cemetery? La Defense has limited land for expansion, they shouldn't even think about building a stadium. Were those cemeteries built as part of the La Defense project? They look well-organised. Why are the cemeteries going to be removed? We can't touch a cemetery for building dedevelopment.

No, the stadium will be built just next to the cemeteries (which are much older than la Défense BD is; they were built in the late 19th century) !

Early 1960s:



-----------------------------------------------------


Stadium location:



La Défense is a very clever choice, from the owner of the team (who will foot the bill btw: €200M), since it's already very well served by numerous public transport lines (Suburban trains/RER/Métro/Tram/Buses).

Moreover, the area needs that kind of projects, for the people (potential customers) they can attract, that's why the arena would include many office spaces, several restaurants/bars & commercial/entertainment areas, in addition of its large corporate/hospitality facilities....

Come on buddy...how could such an idea even cross your mind? I hope you realize how surreal your question is...

A stadium in a graveyard might disturb the dead.

Yes, I could see them banging against the floor. "Can you keep the noise down?! Trying to sleep in here!"

Anyway, I like the stadium. Looks very cool.

Or, during David Guetta's concerts, old grandpa's corpse might a change to scoop at all these teenagers' asses.

It sucks, don't build a stadium next to a graveyard.

Everytime there is a soccer match hooligans will cause damage to graves.
Everytime there is a party, young poeple will puke on graves and do all kinda crazy stuff to damage the graves.

This stadium will increase vandalism.

Tour Carpe Diem To Begin Construction In Paris.

Published on 16-03-2010 by Skyscrapernews.com


Although most of the projects announced over the past couple of years for the La Defense CBD in Paris have fallen by the wayside thanks to the lack of funding and tenants, one development that is seizing the day is the Tour Carpe Diem.



With a distinctive faceted look, a height of 166 metres and 38 floors, the 45,466 square metre building will offer work space for 2,800 employees in the glass-clad tower. The building has been designed to respond intelligently to the natural environment without the need for air conditioning.

The southern façade that will get the most solar gain will be clad in a triple glazed skin complete with a silkscreen finish to help reflect the sunlight but preserve the transparency of the glass. Built into the exterior of the building will be vents that can be automatically adjusted to allow the natural circulation of air throughout depending on the requirements placed on it by the temperature that particular day.

With horizontal louvres helping to provide solar shading on this side of the building, and vertical louvres on the west and eastern faces. Only the north side will be fully exposed to the sun although it is this face of the tower that will get the least solar gain.

Site clearance has now begun on the low-rise building that occupies part of the site, although full-scale demolition will not commence until the summer of 2010. However, with all the necessary permits obtained from the French authorities the final bureaucratic hurdles to full on construction have been cleared.

The building has been designed by Robert AM Stern Architects and is being developed by American property group Hines for the British insurance giant Aviva. It is expected to be complete in 2012.

I'm not sure, but this could be the real-estate project planned by the Racing-Métro's owner, and included with the Arena 92 in order to increase its profits. Besides, this tower is located on the site (Stade des Bouvets) that they want to buy ...

So, that's maybe why the tower looks boxy and "schematic", since the bidding has not begun....

This tower already appeared in some old (prior to the "Plan de relance") renders showing potential tower locations ...

You'll have to give me the name of the ignorant journalist who wrote that inanity (in red)...that bloke had better enquire properly before publishing false information!

Indeed, most of the projects announced over the past couple of years for the La Défense in Paris have NOT fallen wayside at all...

As you exactly said dude, Carpe Diem has officially started late february 2010(render below):


Regarding the following projects, D2, AIR2, Ava, Generali, they have now all obtained their building permit/planning permision. Majunga was also granted permission and a sale promise has been signed:

Breaking news: the D2 tower's bill of sale has been signed today at the MIPIM in Cannes, which means its official start.It will be 180m. Works are reported to begin late 2010 .

As far Phare, the building permit application has been tabled very recently, and Emin Iskenderov Hermitage Plaza's CEO, is willing to table his by the summer.

Nouvel's SIGNAL TOWER has fallen wayside indeed BUT the EPAD president has announced that a new "Signal contest" will be launched.

The only projects having been cancelled owing to the crisis are CB21 & Manhattan tower below, they were both meant to undergo a height increase:
