Does anyone know if Tour Osmose has been cancelled, or is it still scheduled to 2015 ?

According to PSS-archi.eu, Osmose is not cancelled but there is no delivery date (they write 2016 on their website but ...). Such as Generali, I suppose that the project could rise very fast is someone is interested to buy it, the place is free and Bouygues and Centuria seem to be determined to build it ... maybe after the crisis

It is a very nice project by the way, it could help to improve parisians's view on skyscrapers

It's a nice design when taken individually, but it appears top-heavy when viewed from central Paris. Hermitage Towers will do the same. I think there's room for this trick once over, but it quickly loses its appeal through repetition.

La Defence is currently rather boxy and conservative, and I can appreciate there's a desire to introduce some interesting new forms. However it can easily be overdone. A skyline of wierdly shaped glass blobs and other random "look-at-me" objects (as per the first of your three images) is not a winning aesthetic imo. My own city must be careful for the same reason.

Here is a poorly shooped render to show La Défense with both Tour Osmose and Hermitage Plaza. Is this what you talked about ?

Yes, it looks a bit ungainly imo. The individual buildings may be good, but the composition doesn't work. It looks messy and unbalanced. However I'm pleased to see that the Tour Phare is blocked by the Hermitage Towers. I've never liked the Phare design.

Osmose tower is absolutely beautiful but at least I really hope that they would be able to build the Hermitage Plaza and Phare tower. These towers will send a message to the world and will give a greater international feeling to Paris, as France really need to reform and boost its politics, economics and competitiveness, Paris needs these projects in the same way.

If HP was not to come to fruition (what I don't wish obviously), PHARE will be clearly visible & will stand out proudly in the business district.

I really look forward to PHARE, its organic design, its amazing cladding will make people gaze at it once built (even those who are currently very skeptical about it...) PHARE will be La Défense's beacon & will be an amazing & unique addition to the skyline...

I'm severely running out of patience but we all know that we can't do differently in this country, we have to wait for the appeals to get cleared before jumping for joy, so...

There are banners for La Defense showing the Hermitage towers in their logo. I don't understand what's keeping them from just building them already... a few grumpy old men complaining about height?

I read recently that they are in talks with the banks and that they almost complete their financial needs to start construction. But I do think it is mostly because the appeals that they haven't started full demolition/construction.

Guys it is possible to reduce all these process for construction? It's insane.

Just reread HP's thread dude, you'll have the answer.

Nope, welcome to France SparksTO...the judiciary procedure is awfully long in this country, that's insane & frustrating but there's nothing we can do, but wait...

Thanks.

Lol, how did this thread gain an extra 6,000 views in the space of 45 mins tonight? Tsk tsk. childish behaviour. Apparently there is an Admin here who was worried about the London thread overtaking this one on view count.

To be honest I personally never looked at the number of 'views' whatever the thread until you mentioned it now... But indeed, how 6,000 more views in 45 min is possible ?

Anyway, is it that important to you ?


Oh and the most "important" if I may say so, is the fact that in the real world, Paris gets more visitors than London, not to mention France as a whole vs the UK as a whole ()....
