An article in a Frenchspeaking newspaper in Montreal

Quote:

Ivanhoé Cambridge poursuit son aventure parisienne avec un gigantesque projet de gratte-ciel tout juste approuvé par les autorités municipales.

Au début d'avril, la filiale immobilière de la Caisse de dépôt a marqué un grand coup en rachetant le siège social de PSA Peugeot Citroën pour 350 millions de dollars. Cette fois, Ivanhoé Cambridge investira de 500 à 600 millions d'euros (de 650 à 780 millions CAN) dans un projet mixte du 13e arrondissement.

Le complexe sera constitué de deux tours inclinées et asymétriques de 115 et 175 mètres, dessinées par l'architecte Jean Nouvel. Le projet a été sélectionné avant-hier par la mairie de Paris au terme d'une consultation internationale.

«Nous avons choisi le projet le plus original et aussi le plus radical», a commenté Anne Hidalgo, première adjointe responsable de l'urbanisme, dans un communiqué de la mairie parisienne.

Ivanhoé Cambridge s'est allié au groupe américain Hines dans ce projet dont la construction devrait débuter en 2014. Ivanhoé allongera tous les fonds, tandis que Hines en sera le promoteur, a confirmé une porte-parole hier après-midi.


Les plus hauts depuis 1976

Selon Le Monde, les deux gratte-ciel dessinés par Jean Nouvel seront les plus hauts érigés à l'intérieur du périphérique (l'autoroute qui encercle Paris) depuis la tour Montparnasse en 1976. Cette construction est rendue possible grâce à un changement des règlements municipaux sur la hauteur, adopté en 2010.

Les deux tours devraient comprendre 91 225 m2 de bureaux, 1832 m2 de commerces, ainsi que des logements, un auditorium et un hôtel, indique le communiqué de la mairie. La fin des travaux est prévue en 2018.

La filiale de la Caisse de dépôt mise gros sur l'étranger. En plus de ses activités récentes à Paris, elle a annoncé le mois dernier des investissements de 300 millions dans les centres commerciaux au Brésil, et elle reste à l'affût d'occasions d'affaires en Chine.

If you make a cluster you change the skyline and the panorama
If you put off the eiffel tower it changes the perception of the city.
if you build hermitage tower you change the skyline and the city.

All major change impacts the way you look at the city.

Paris needs some major artistic intervention. No necessary a tower but an iconic one that determines what is the paris of 21st century.

Could you identify what is really the new paris?

In 2012, just a tower higher than the Montparnasse tower, that change the skyline (and come to Paris seeing from the center of Paris (like jardin des Tuileries, Champs Elysées, Eiffel Tower and Arc de Triomphe) to see the impact from the center before saying that La Défense is not Paris.
And there is a lot of construction or projects that change the skyline in the next few years like fondation Vuitton, Triangle, le TGI etc.

Anyway, this is not the right thread for that...

It's a joke ? The Pyramid has just 23 years, it's the new landmark of Paris for today. Maybe you think 23 years it's very old, but at the scale of Paris, it's really recent.

Paris of 2012 ? it's U/C, in particular the Louis Vuitton Fondation (modern Grand Palais), new Les Halles (modern heart of Paris). And of course the twins towers Hermitage in few years.

Second appeal against the ARENA 92 confirmed!

It's now official, the GAP association is attacking the stadium's building permit regarding the noise involved by the noise in & out of the ARENA 92 in Nanterre...

Quote:


Et de deux ! l'Arena 92 est attaqué par un nouveau recours


L'association GAP (Groupe d'action et de proposition pour l'aménagement de Nanterre) avait laissé planer le 26 avril dernier, l'éventualité du dépôt d'un recours contre l'Arena 92.C'est désormais chose faite. Le permis de construire du complexe de l'Arena 92 se voit-là attaqué par un second recours contentieux après celui de l'association Acri-Liberté. L'association GAP avait exposé lors d'une réunion publique mercredi 26 avril à Nanterre Préfecture ses motivations pour faire annuler le permis de construire délivré le 4 novembre 2011[...]
