Unibail should first build Phare and Triangle before making more grandiose plans.

That's very subjective parcdesprinces...as far as I'm concerned, I've always LOVED Triangle & really look forward to it. I can't see what's wrong with it, its architecture is stunning, so is its shape, & last but not least, it's gonna be another gorgeous landmark for Paris, recognizable at first sight from afar!

With all the different announcements in the past weeks, I thought it was time to make a general summary of skyscrapers u/c or planned in Paris, preceded by the number of skyscrapers already built, for perspective.

As of the end of March 2006 (see post #961 for the updated list as of the end of April 2007):
*12 skyscrapers above 150 m (492 ft) in La Défense and city proper: already built (note: the figure does not include Eiffel Tower)
*two 180 m (590 ft) skyscrapers in La Défense: under construction (due to be completed in 2007)
*renovation of the 159 m (522 ft) Axa Tower due to be turned into a 220 m (720 ft) skyscraper: renovation starts in 2007
*two 165 m (541 ft) skyscrapers in Levallois-Perret: approved, construction due to start soon
*one 400 m (1,300 ft) skyscraper in La Défense: proposed (approval due by June 2006)
*one 300 m (1,000 ft) skyscraper in La Défense: proposed (approval due by June 2006)
*three to four skyscrapers in the 200 - 250 m (650 - 800 ft) range in La Défense: proposed (approval due by June 2006)
*one 200 m (650 ft) skyscraper by architect Jean Nouvel in La Défense: proposed

All projects are due to be completed by 2015, at which time Greater Paris would have 21 to 23 skyscrapers above 150 m, including the tallest skyscraper in western Europe (400 m), announced as the "signal" tower of the renovated La Défense.

If the center-right win the 2008 Paris municipal election, building of skyscrapers in the city proper may also be forthcoming. Paris opposition leader, Françoise de Panafieu, said she supported the building of tall skyscrapers on the fringes of the historical center, at the moment hampered by opposition from the Green Party, a key partner of the curent center-left municipal coallition ruling the city.
Thanks for this useful information

I like this. I think this kind of buildings improve Paris. Something modern in the middle of the city, very good.

New lighting for terminal 1 at CDG Airport. That's the terminal that looks like it's out of a spook movie from the 1970s (you know, where the guys use silent guns hidden under raincoats...).
