That's a lower percentage than the people who were opposed the increase of the minimum retirement age in early 2010.
The minimum retirement age did increase.

Yep, but the towers did not rise.

(on the contrary, many of them were canceled... If I'm not mistaken )

Increase the height of a tower is a logical human processus.
Has people forgotten that la defense didn't exist 100 years ago?

Paris panorama & skyline is changing (slowly now) but it is.

Towers will emerge everywhere around paris in the next years but not at the rythm we would wish.

m2 price will be higher in 10 years then... you don't have another choice than build higher.

This is the processus that led Nyc to be what it is and now (on a minor scale) the same for London.

Paris is not an exception.

did you know ...

Paris Ile-de-France, the Business Hub in Europe



Located at the crossroads of European and global exchanges, Paris Ile-de-France, the world’s leading tourist destination with more than 42 million tourists each year, is Europe’s no. 1 market with GDP representing 29% of France’s national wealth.
In 2009, it boasted the world’s second largest concentration of corporate head offices of Fortune 500 companies, ahead of New York and London and just behind Tokyo. It has Europe’s largest corporate real estate assets with 49 million sq.m. of offices, 30 million sq.m. of commercial premises and 29 million sq.m. of warehouses.
With its 11.7 million inhabitants, Paris-Ile-de-France is Europe’s first urban unit with a capital city located less than 2 hours flight from major European cities.
With 80% of France’s trade fair and trade show business, and 600,000 sq.m. of exhibition space, Paris has the largest offer in the world.

Still with this Paris tower obsession ?
Hopefully you're still young to hope seeing at least one more tower in Paris before dying .
I can't say the same thing

That's what you call an urban jungle: Eiffel Tower to be turned into world’s greenest tourist attraction with £65m of plants

The Eiffel Tower is set to be transformed into a giant green ‘jungle’ covered in 600,000 plants.
In a controversial plan which will transform the Paris skyline, an astonishing £65m (76m euros) will be spent on making it the most ‘ecologically correct’ tourist attraction in the world.

If approved, it will cost 72m€...Is it really appropriate to launch such a project given the current economic crisis...? Definitely not .
