T'as pas l'air d'avoir vraiment compris de quoi il était question. Demande aux personnes intéressées.

Anyway, the sample from LVMH fondation is indeed very promising. Probably the controversy about the building will naturally stop once the concrete will be hidden by the awesome cladding.

that's YOU the "advertiser"

Demasked!!

What i win for the "rewarded " guy?

The economic council of Greater Paris (Île-de-France) predicts 15 million inhabitants in Greater Paris in 2050, up from 12 million now. You can see their report here: http://www.cesr-ile-de-france.fr/doc...s-pour-agi.pdf

We now know the exact height of the Tour Air². It will be 207 meters (680 ft) above street level.

This is the official decree where we found the exact height (expressed above sea-level):

The public enquiry ended on May 20. The building permit should be delivered soon now.

Some renders:








Picture by Brisavoine, renders of the projects by EricParis (Air² is only 202 m high here, 5 meters shorter than its real height):

J'adore la façon dont PortoNuts a, par une coïncidence incroyable, posté dans le thread sur L... seulement 4 minutes après le post de Jex7844. Il y a de ces coïncidences vraiment...

Another post from PortoNuts only 4 minutes after someone (Kony in this case) posted in this thread. Isn't any moderator going to end this comedy?

He's not English, he's Portuguese, as his name implies. That makes his behavior even more ridiculous.

Some pictures taken yesterday by Jexmen showing the demolition of the Véritas building to make way for the 174.5 m (573 ft) Tour D2. This is now the 3rd active construction site at La Défense (the other two are Tour Majunga and Tour Carpe Diem).

Tours Hermitage are due to start this Autumn, so says the Russian developer. For the other towers I'm not sure, maybe the other forumers know.
