It's true, why build taller buildings when we could build the smallest possible.
Obviously in a city where the space lack and with a huge shortage of housing supply.

We seriously need of override these stupid height limit rules in inner Paris.

New Beaugrenelle: Insights on the site
Adrian and Julie Pouthier Nicolas. | 29/09/2011

The first sod was given on February 4, seven cranes are mounted

The new shopping center Beaugrenelle (45 000 sq.m. GLA) will replace the 1970's which, based on a slab of planning, was declining.
Reinterpreting the concept of the Paris department store, designed by New Beaugrenelle Valode Pistre and comes in the form of block on the same level that frame the street Linois: Pegasus block and Aquarius block connected by a bridge and each built around an atrium.

There is some exception like in Batignolles..



I like the explanation:
"These appartement are for a class of Parisians, the upper middle class, who are struggling to fit in the private sector."
It shows well, the housing situation in Paris.

Paris region office take-up highest since 2006
12 October 2011, 08:42 PM

Office space take-up in the Paris Ile-de-France region rose 45% in the third quarter to reach 787,600 sq.m., the highest level since before the financial crisis, according to data aggregator Immostat and IPD France. Take-up was up 49% from 3Q10.
Take-up was the highest since 2006, and takes the total for the year to date to 1.96m sq.m. Full year take-up is expected to reach 2.2m-2.3m sq.m. Realtor Jones Lang LaSalle said the third quarter was boosted by the conclusion of a number of large transactions agreed in 2010, and the current economic uncertainty is likely to weigh heavily on lettings in the final quarter. The stock of office space immediately available fell slightly to 3.57m sq.m at end-September, while average rents rose to €318 per sq.m. per annum excluding utilities and ancillary charges.
Investments in office, retail, business parks and logistics real estate in Ile-de-France totalled €5.9bn over the first three quarters, up from €4.5bn a year earlier. JLL said the eurozone financial crisis has so far not adversely affected the market, and full-year investment is likely to be close to last year's total of €8.7bn. The expiry at end-2011 of the reduced capital gains tax rate on sales of real estate assets by corporates to French REITs is expected to stimulate activity in 4Q11. pie

No, total floor area of Westfield Stratford City is almost 2 times bigger than this, but i am sure this one also looks really great. So, the one in London is still Europe's biggest, though.

Westfield, Hammersmith (West London)
Quote:
The centre is noted for its size: with a retail floor area of 150,000m² (1.615m ft²), the equivalent of about 30 football pitches. It cost £1.6 bn and it has 270 stores, 5 floors and 4500 parking spaces.
Westfield, Stratford (East London)
Quote:
The new Westfield, which cost £1.4 bn, will have 300 shops and 70 restaurants set over 1.9 million sq ft; this makes it the largest urban shopping centre in Europe. MetroCentre in Newcastle remains the largest indoor shopping centre in the Europe.
I don't know about the one in Vienna, it is only described as one of Europe's biggest shopping malls and whenever i type Europe's biggest shopping centres in Google "US" search, only the ones in London pop up, perhaps the terms used are different, urban shopping centre and indoor shopping centre?

It is what we call publicity and London is excellent in this area.
It may be wrong but if your are good, everyone will believe it.

Restructuration de la tour Prisma

Ivanhoé Cambridge - anciennement SITQ a confié la restructuration et l'aménagement de la Tour Prisma au cabinet d’architectes Axel Schoenert. Situé en plein coeur du quartier de La Défense, il s'agit d'un immeuble de bureaux d’une surface locative de 24.000 m².

« L'aménagement des espaces et le choix des matériaux offrent une grande souplesse d'organisation dans des espaces conviviaux et élégants », explique le cabinet dans un communiqué. Ce projet s’inscrit dans une démarche environnementale avec la double certification environnementale HQE Exploitation et LEED Existing Building.

Revival of Paris’s Skyscraper District Collides With European Debt Crisis

Voici un article posté sur le forum britannique. Nos amis d'outre-Manche semblent s'en réjouir...

Quote:
Revival of Paris’s Skyscraper District Collides With European Debt Crisis

[...]“There will be others (projects) that fall by the wayside,” said Patrick Leniston, head of France for building consultant EC Harris LLP. “There are redesign requirements on a number of towers and developers need to stop just going for the image and start talking to end users.” [...]

[...]While few doubt that President Sarkozy will leave his imprint on La Defense, just as predecessors Charles de Gaulle and Francois Mitterrand did before him, it may not be as ambitious or as grandiose as he envisioned.
An article not really 'positive' but interesting nevertheless.

I just want at least Phare tower to be realized.

Hign Iconic towers hit people minds. Not the number of medium towers.
