Picture of La Défense that I took 3 hours ago.

For comparison, picture of La Défense taken from the exact same place in 2007 (you can even spot the same trees 3 years apart).

Awsome spot and pics. Not much seems to have changed, though. But the cranes show there's more to come.

Merci pour les photos.

Yeah, I don't think the buildings will be built for Russian olygarchs, it's just business and it's for whoever can afford a flat in these

Thank you Minako tu.
With these two new towers the density of La Defense will increase much more than it is now. I wonder if public transport can support all workers ? There're so much people in metro, bus and RER A now.

A new high-speed Métro line circling around Paris will be built. It will have a large underground station under La Défense. Also, the RER line E currently ending at Haussmann-Saint Lazare in Central Paris should be extended to La Défense.

This is the new Métro line circling around Paris:

I doubt more and more of the realization of the Grand Huit subway project, I think that the Arc Express project has more chance to be built.


Fortunately this subway ring in inner suburbs is better and more usefull than the other project.

The secretary of state for the Paris Capital Region, Christian Blanc, has been fired today for spending 12,000 euros of public funds on... cigars. He was notably in charge of setting up the framework to build a high-speed Métro line circling around Paris that we talked above earlier. He was hated by the president of the Paris Region council, Jean-Paul Huchon, a Socialist do-nothing baron who doesn't want the French government to walk on his turf. They must be toasting at the regional council tonight.

And to add a hilarious note to that already pathetic story, Christian Blanc is being replaced by.... (I'm not making this up) the minister of Rural Areas!

A metropolis of 12 million people in the hands of the minister of Rural Areas. Only in France!

Ok, to the credit of the former minister of Rural Areas and newly appointed secretary of state for the Paris Capital Region, whose name is Michel Mercier, it must be pointed out that he's a politician from Lyon, a city long accustomed to metropolitan-wide governing bodies (Michel Mercier is the president of the Rhône departmental council, within which Greater Lyon is located), and he's been a vocal proponent of metropolitan structures for large French cities (he even offered to relinquish his departmental powers over Lyon in favor of a stronger Greater Lyon metropolis distinct from the department, a selfless gesture quite rare in politics). So now that he's in charge he may propose a metropolitan structure for Greater Paris which is still sorely lacking. Christian Blanc was only concerned with his Métro line pet project and didn't seem to care about a metropolitan governing structure for Greater Paris.

The new secretary of state for the Paris Capital Region, Michel Mercier:

Roissy CDG's Satellite 4

Quote:
A new boarding satellite will be launched by end 2012 on the airport of Roissy Charles de Gaulle. The S4 current code name, should enhance the attractiveness of the airport in Paris, and sets as its main objective the improvement of the quality of services. Visite du chantier. Visit the site.



The S4 will be added to the airport, east of S3. Il sera relié au 2B par le métro automatique. 2B will be connected to the subway system.


A record! The building to house the boarding terminal S4 will be 770 m long.


Passageways to the next level of the building will distinguish passenger arrivals and those who are on the move.


Perspective view of the building interior.


Boarding gate


Carpets will be essential for mechanical pacing along the building more than 700 m.


False ceilings will equip the entire building, except under the canopy.Made of methacrylate, it will feature thousands of diodes(LED) that will affect the night sky.


In low-cons of boarding space, the mall, which will be overseen by a canopy of 1,500 m2, will be the life of the building.


More than 3,300 m2 of shops, bars and restaurants are expected in the mall, who wants the image of a Parisian Department Store.


The future S4 will accommodate 16 parking positions, of which 7 will be dedicated to the A380 widebody type.


Corridor leading from the gate to the aircraft. There will be any more bus runs, which will generate savings of 1000 km in less traveled each day.


"After passing through security checks, passengers will temporarily leave the airport crossing universe" heaven's door "to enter a large commercial area."


Aéroports de Paris will also offer a range of services to passengers who will board this satellite: video games, work spaces and relax. The marble, glass walls and all the materials chosen to develop commercial space create a Zen atmosphere very conducive to relaxation and well-being. From the entrance, and throughout their journey, passengers can view all information about their flight (gate, time, travel time). "


"To create a warm, Aeroports de Paris has used the talent of a renowned colorist Alain Boni. In the departure lounge, the seats will have various colors on a row to break the uniformity. Carpeting follow it too, a color gradient. Natural materials are privileged to provide an atmosphere that is both comfortable and refined born: wood, marble, glass, etc.. "


"After registration at the terminal 2E, passengers will join the satellite 4 via an internal automatic metro line to the terminal in about 3 minutes."


"The automatic metro station, located in the central body will welcome passengers in a light atmosphere and fi ne. The escalators will be highlighted by coloring champagne passengers gather in the shops."


It is the largest area of shops and services from Paris-Charles de Gaulle, arranged around a vast central square of size equivalent to that of the Place Dauphine in Paris. This space, lit by a huge glass located 9 meters in height will extend more than 3300 square meters.


In the middle of this square, chairs and benches will allow guests to relax between two purchases. Past the dining area, a street lined with shops provide access to both wings.The design of the space has been developed by the firm Saguez & Partners.


"The gallery landing pass over the waiting rooms. Fully glazed, the gallery will allow arriving passengers to contemplate the departure lounges and shopping area before returning to their mail or delivery room luggage Terminal 2E. "
