The height of the towers that are located towards the center of the esplanade tend to be counted from the esplanade level, whereas those that are located at the edge of the esplanade as is the case for the Tours Hermitage tend to be counted from stree-level. There are probably exceptions in both cases.

Deleted the last posts. f you don't want to listen, find out the hard way. I know you don't like English (well, who likes it eh ), but that's the agreement for the international section here, pals.

Levallois twin towers project cancelled!!

Those were utterly ugly imo.

2 new towers should be built in central Levallois (29 an 30 floors) in late 2012.

I've read Tour D2 should start construction soon.




The former building on site should be completely destroyed by mid august 2011.

The extension of Roland Garros was part of Paris' bid to the 2012 Olympics. Seems like they'll extend it anyway.

Reconstruction of Châtelet-Les Halles has started! The underground shopping mall of Les Halles is currently being torn down. All eastern access to Châtelet-Les Halles are closed (I saw it last Wednesday). It's the biggest construction site in the center of Paris that we've seen in a long long time.

This is what they are currently tearing down. Not many people will miss them.

This tasteless architecture from the early 1980s is being replaced by this, the new Les Halles:

Nice, reminds me somewhat of New Change, at least from certain angles.

A bit too heavy. The new Les Halles won't be as heavy. And it will be much larger of course.
