We've learned a bit more about the 308m/1,010ft Generali Tower today. The tower will have 50 floors, it will host offices for 6,000 people, and it is due to open in 2011. The tower will be an "open" tower, unlike current skyscrapers at La Défense, meaning it will have cafés, restaurants, fitness centers, etc., open to everybody.

The Generali Tower will use the latest technologies: the tall spire will contain wind turbines and solar panels, the windows should be photovoltaic (self-producing electricity), and the tower will be cooled naturaly by stocking the cool air at night. There will be gardens on every floor, watered by recycled rainwater. Compared to current skyscrapers, the Generali Tower will save 3,500 metric tonnes (3,860 US tons) of CO2.

Here are new pictures released.







Note that on this last pic the Axa tower is shown unrenovated.

Yup, the first microscopic rendering was crap.

This render without the horizontal break of Axa seems make Generali higher. Well thought.
Darn ! I wonder what will be the so-called "Signal" tower after such a striking tower.

It is so stupid that they put the tour signal on axa and generali's axis, it'll ruin everything when it would have been perfectly placed left of the grande arche

Only 50 floors? For a thousand foot tower, that's not many.

The place left of the grande arche is the tallest' one. Remember a 400 m high tower will be built there for 2013.

That is because there is a severe lack of space in Japan.

Thus, there is no floor inside the spire.

French forumer Metropolitan made this render. It shows the renovated Axa Tower (the tower most to the right), the Generali Tower (behind the Gan Tower), and the Granite Tower (to the left of the Société Générale twin towers). For an idea of proportions here, the tip of the Generali Tower's spire is approximately as high as the summit of the Eiffel Tower.

Thanx for having posted my rendering Brisavoine.

Here is a newer version I've just made today on which I've also added the Hotel Meridien La Défense and the T1 tower which is currently under construction.

Greater Paris: office space take-up already in excess of 2005 levels

At the end of October 2006, office real estate transactions in Greater Paris have reached the total transaction volume for the entire year of 2005, with more than 2.2 million m² (23.5 million sq. ft) already signed up. "Everything suggests that 2006 will be an excellent year, with a transaction volume in between 2.5 and 2.6 million m² (27 and 28 million sq. ft)" say consultants at Jones Lang Lasalle, who pointed out that a dwindling supply of new or refurbished large floor areas (above 10,000 m²/107,000 sq. ft) foreshadow an acceleration of prime rental growth "throughout 2007". "A 10 to 15% growth seems like a reasonable assumption to us". Since the beginning of 2006, 8.9 million m² (95.8 million sq. ft) of office space has been rented out in Europe (more than 22% of it in Greater Paris). It is the highest level ever registered on European real estate markets.

So what are the new high-rise proposals confirmed to kickstart construction next year in Paris?

I'm not sure what you mean. Are you referring to projects we've already talked about or new projects? All sorts of projects or only skyscraper projects? In La Défense or in all parts of Greater Paris?

I think T1 and Granite are u/c. I mean Generali (?) and the others shown on the render above at LD. For example, the one at the right of Generali. Any dates?
