For having lived both in Paris & London, I can say that London, despite an obvious lack of bins (unlike the French capital), is a lot cleaner than Paris...so it's definitely a matter of mentality.

So I come to this thread to see whats projects are going on in Paris for when I visit in a few weeks and i'm met with constant 'one ups' with London and anti-British comments and tags that (to be honest) make this thread look quite child-like. Looking on the London thread there are no constant comparisons and 'one ups' with Paris, it's just discussions about the projects going on in that city. I know this is hypocritical as I've just started up the discussion again but this has to stop. The London forum manages to stay on topic 90% of the time and posters don't seem to feel the need to slag Paris off 24 7 so why can't this one stay on topic? Rant over, I apologise.

I think there used to be bins just like in most places. After the terrorist bomb attacks (the biggest being in the RER and Metro station Notre-Dame-Saint-Michel, bins were removed and replaced with smaller, transparent, green bags. I can no longer remember the year of the series of attacks but it was in the 90s and were perpetrated by an Algerian-based terror group. I think Paris never got over that and never reintroduced the bins.

For being the densest city in Western Europe--possibly in par only with Barcelona or Madrid in that arena--the city of Paris and its banlieue is actually very clean. The city proper itself has building after building after building that are typically 6, 7, 8 or 9 stories high. The city is actually suppose to be much more dirty, in theory, if you actually think about it.

with all the buildings scheduled to be built around arena i understand that some people could fear about noise after concerts.

I don't know why they reclad that one. It looked good before, nice reflective blue glass. There are other buildings that need to be reclad in La Defense far more than that tower.

Paris and London are two amazing cities, the rivalry is good because it keeps them both on their toes, trying to outdo each other

+1 it's 100% true.
When you think that La defense still the N°1 of CBd in Europe, you guess that the number of projects will increase only to keep this situation as a marketing argue

You would argue that London City is the Nr1. CBD in Europe although La Defense alongside Frankfurt and Canary Wharf are the 3 which suggest that title with the office skyscrapers.
