thanx

this is gonna be a hit in Paris when it opens next year

especially if the expos are nothing we usually see in Pompidou center or Musée d'Orsay...and if the veiw from the rooftop terrace is nice (it should be since it's already possible to see the top of La defense tower from down the park/street...then people will run to see that marvel

The LV building is simply stunning. Another jewel in Paris' architectural crown

C'mon, I'd love to see Hermitage Towers built, but it was announced for ages, and we still got only bunch of bureaucracy papers.

I agree with letranger, HP already belongs to history books.

History books which are one by one purged by the courts !
The power to warm of "Mourir à La Défense" or "Zéro ambition pour Courbevoie" and some others is huge, but Hermitage Group is still confident.

Brisavoine could tell more but we have to give Indy G in sacrifice on the alter of His Madgesty to have more details

The power to harm

"Oatbreaker" has repeatedly said that the construction would start in summer 2015. It looks like this will be the case as this project keeps getting delayed year after year.

France is not China (thank God...), a massive project like HP cannot see the light in the blink of a eye, the nimbys aren't ousted overnight, even though some are real pain in the ass, we need to respect the french bureaucracy/procedure & wait for all appeals to be cleared before launching the construction, it's ******* annoying as it takes ages in this country but it's just the way it is.

Projects like Hermitage Plaza tend to take around a decade to rise from the ground (same in other countries, was the case for the Shard in London for instance), but some smaller projects such as AVA Tower (142m) can also get stuck for years for the same reasons (project unveiled in 2006 & still blocked to date...)

Bear in mind that HP was only unveiled in 2009...given its complexity, I think that the project has come a long way for 4 years...

I'm fed up with waiting for so many years as well, but there's nothing we can do but wait, wait & wait...hopefully, our patience will be rewarded...

Thanks Kony, It's like you captured a dream.
