EPAD should have cancelled the Air2 tower. Why did the Aurore Tower have to pass away? Good-looking facade. I haven't heard anyonein SSC say it was ugly. Another good life taken by air rights purposes.

Indeed, it's far from being ugly, it's actually a pretty nice looking building with a lovely coppery cladding/some nice curves, but it's no longer up to date, too "small", too old (almost 40 years old).To remain competitive, La Défense needs to destroy some ancient buildings given that there aren't many free spaces left (but there will be when the EPAD & EPASA merge...)

Air2 is nicknamed the "Tulipe"(tulip) owing to its explicit shape, it will be an amazing skyscraper.


AIR2 tower, 220m

Tour Aurore, 110m , will be demolished to make room for AIR2 which wil be twice as big

I agree SOOO MUCH. Aurore is a discrete icon of a specific period of La Défense. Such a shame to replace it with a dull, conservative and boxy fat thing.

18 MARCH 2010

Against all expectations, Jean Nouvel denied having renounced his Signal Tower. Earlier in the day at the MIPIM in Cannes, the EPAD president, Joëlle Ceccaldi-Raynaud discoursed about the "renouveau de La Défense" and in particular said that the french architect and his team had sent a letter to the Epad a few weeks ago stating that they had eventually thrown in the towel owing to a lack of investors...but Nouvel amazingly clearly denied that announcement shortly afterwards and went :" the Tour Signal project will come true when the crisis drifts away".

Tour Signal, 301m

Unless he changes the exterior look of his tower, Nouvel doesn't seem to realize that we don't want it anymore!!!!!Besides, a new contest has been announced, so get over it Jean!!!

The boss of Hermitage France, Emin Iskenderov, declared today that the sales of apartments and offices in the 323m Hermitage Towers will start towards the end of this year. He said many people have already expressed an interest in buying apartments in the tower, despite the fact that the sales have not yet started. The average price of the apartments will be 12,000 euros per m² (1,500 dollars per sq ft).

He also said that Hermitage will officially file a building permit before the summer of this year, and they expect to be granted the building permit by the end of this year (Iskenderov also expects the relocation of the people currently living in the council flats on site to be completed by the end of this year; half of them have already been relocated as of March 2010). Construction is due to start before the summer of 2011, and the towers are due to be completed and opened by the end of 2015-beginning of 2016.

The 30th, 31st, and 32nd floors will be open to the public and contain a panoramic swimming pool, a fitness center, a cafeteria and a restaurant. The last floors of the towers won't be open to the public.

The two towers will cost 2 billion euros.

The interview of Emin Iskenderov:

Emin Iskenderov also said something about Hermitage Plaza that I ignored completely. Indeed, yesterday in Cannes he said :

«C’est notre première implantation en dehors de Russie, explique-t-il. Nous avons hésité entre la France et l’Angleterre. Notre choix s’est porté finalement sur Paris car le marché français nous semblait moins spéculatif.»

Translation: " It's our first establishment outside Russia, he says. We hesitated between France and Great Britain. We eventually directed our choice towards Paris as the french market seemed less speculative to us."

They would have looked great in Canary Wharf as well .

Regarding the relocation of the remaining families of "Les Damiers" (buildings to be demolished to allow the twin towers' s construction), Hermitage declared that there were only 10 families left for which a solution to relocate them hadn't been found yet.

Canary Wharf has a limitation of 230m or so (pretty much already topped), so it would have been built somewhere else in London.

Good job they chose Paris, because the chances of those 2 towers getting planning permission in London would fall somewhere between zero and not a chance.
