Its only 1 tower not an area.

La defense will look great.
The only bad thing is that the right side of the Grande Arch looks so much better then left side it feels it only goes about the right side all 250+ towers are on that side

Tour signal is canceled that would give the left flank a big boost and make it not so weak next to the right side.
If that would happen La Defense would be 1 of the strongest clusters in the world now its not.

This urbanity, density, compacity and immensity of Paris on the renders is amazing. No other city in Europe can give that impression.

I have indicated the population density of the various administrative districts that are visible on the render that I posted in my previous post. The figures are inhabitants per km² on January 1, 2008.

The decrees from the prefect of Greater Paris (Île-de-France) authorizing the construction of office space in the future Hermitage Towers at La Défense.

The so-called "Winter truce" ends on March 31. So from April 1 on they can throw out the last tenants living in the Damier d'Infra and Damier d'Anjou buildings (if there are still any), and start demolition.

Why do each time something is posted in this thread Portonuts have to come has to come posting something in the London thread? Someone doesn't like having the Paris thread on the main page? Should I remove him permission to post in this forum just for the time to see if he can actually write a sentence instead of posting an article?

I had already noticed that several times... But refused to think he did it on purpose... It's weird. He propably posts in the London thread just after anyone posts here to overtake the number of posts in Paris thread... Anyway. Back to the topic.

Except Portonuts isn't from London or the UK. Honestly, who gives a s**t, let's just enjoy what we have going on in each other's cities rather than worry about post counts.

It's only going to block from one angle. And yes, I used to feel like that... but eventually, more towers might block these :P


@ Brisavoine:Can they build across the Seine river?

Can they build skyscrapers/tall buildings on the opposite side of the river, outside of La Défense?

I think they can, since there are some propositions for Neuilly-sur-Seine, and in the part of Puteaux Island belonging to Neuilly.

Brisavoine is right when he says "it looks like the buildings in this new district will be taller than the average buildings in Central Paris", look:



The blocks in yellow may reach 50 meters, whereas the buildings cannot be taller than 37 m as we can see in this map (I show in green the new Batignolles area):


http://www.paris.fr/portail/pratique..._sheet_id=3280

As for the tower, the height must be 160 m or less in order to preserve the view of Grand Palais from the National Assembly.

First, the southern part of the ring road must be remade, that's currently under study. However new skyscrapers could be announced for this area this year.

They are called "Hermitage Plaza" aka Hermitage Towers. It's always the same reaction the first time we see the render: "nice but wrong place". It's just a matter of habit. Anyway there is no height restriction riverside, let's hope that the future projects riverside south won't waste this opportunity.

Well 50 meter is just height enouf to see it towering above normal buildings.

And i hope so

When the developper decided on twin towers, one tower on each side making a gate to La Defense instead would have been more natural.

The thing is that it is already the case. Tour First is the tallest tower in France and is right in front of all the towers as viewed from the historical axis. Many people have the view from the historical axis in mind because it is the most photographed. Most towers in LD are built, aligned on a east- west axis, so there will always be one tower blocking another viewed from central Paris.

This is LD photographed from the south. The skyline is completely different different from here and is spread out on the horizon. The red border on the right side of the picture (drawn by Brisavoine) indicates the position of central Paris.

Yes they can. As Charpentier said, there are already some proposals for some towers on the Neuilly side of the Neuilly bridge, to serve as a sort of entrance to La Défense, and in order to create a progressive height increase, instead of going straight from 40-meter high roofs (Neuilly) to 337-meter high roofs (Hermitage). These tentative towers on the Neuilly side of Neuilly bridge are part of the burying and redesigning of the main axis between the Arc de Triomphe and La Défense (the so-called Axe Majeur).

Metropolitan, who works at Neuilly's town hall, could tell us more about the latest developments regarding the Axe Majeur scheme, but he has been banned from the forum for trivial reasons, so we will never know.

Some tentative projects of towers in Neuilly, part of the Axe Majeur scheme:
