I don't know best but I'm a little bit tired of all the critics send for each french project here.
I Don't see a lot of french people trolling the London projects & construction, so I would like to see the same thing here, that's all.

Hermitage Towers will be a good addition but may make the area look a little unbalanced.
Why post a negative comment like that in another city's thread? Were you intentionally trying to be rude?

I am critical of poor developments anywhere.

Personally i don't think it is up to the standards of other developments proposed in La Defense, such as Phare and Hermitage.

That's all. Do you disagree?

Sorry you think i'm trolling, i'm not.

PS I do love Paris, and visit every year.
It's fine to have an opinion, but if you don't have anything nice to say you should maybe hold back on expressing it.

With regards to the Eqho Tower re-clad, i much prefer it to the previous grey cladding. In fact Le Defense is looking better and better with the reclads and it's gonna be an incredible district with all the new towers such as D2, Carpe Diem, and (hopefully) Phare.

You noticed how I said Hermitage Towers will be a good addition. Is this trolling?

Rather than getting over emotional, why not agree or disagree with my post and write something useful. For example, do you really like that yellow cladding? In my opinion (just an opinion) i really don't like it, and i think the tower is a bad addition. I'm sorry if you don't like my opinion, but that is all it is.

Comparisons with the Shard are a little silly!
Be careful, the mods will have you!

You dont seem to want to let it go!

It was built in the 80s was it not? Infact, on edit, it was origionally built in 1988!
I have to agree though, i dont see the reclad as a good thing, they may as well have left it how it was...
