Paris Set to Outdo London Shard With Russian Skyscrapers

BusinessWeek
September 16, 2013


The Foster+Partners-designed French complex -- to be named The Hermitage Plaza -- will have towers of 85 and 86 floors and is slated to be completed by early 2019.

Russian developer Hermitage has a project for Paris that would outdo London.

It’s planning a complex costing about 3 billion euros ($4 billion) on Paris’s outskirts to elbow out the London Shard from its spot as western Europe’s tallest skyscraper. The project with two 320 meter-high (1,050 feet) towers in the La Defense business district, 11 metro stops from the Notre-Dame cathedral, will house luxury apartments, offices and a five-star hotel. The structures would surpass the 310 meter-tall London Shard. In the French capital, only the Eiffel Tower will be taller.

“You’ll be able to see the buildings from every part of the city,” Emin Iskenderov, 37, the Russian chief executive officer of Hermitage, said in a Sept. 12 interview in his Paris office. “We hope before the end of this year we’re going to finalize the financial agreements, and we’re going to start the project this year.”

The conception of the buildings, France’s first skyscrapers to combine offices, apartments and a hotel, coincides with dropping housing prices and office rents in the country. The French economy will barely expand for the second year in 2013 amid Europe’s financial woes, and as Socialist President Francois Hollande and his predecessor Nicolas Sarkozy raised the tax burden to a record to trim the budget deficit.

“In a difficult period, it’s not an obvious project to develop,” Olivier Gerard, the head of commercial real estate services firm Cushman & Wakefield France, said in a Sept. 10 interview. A multipurpose tower “is a very difficult building to develop because of security issues and different flows of persons within the building,” he said.

[...]

Iskenderov is undeterred, pointing to the success of the mixed model in Asia and the Middle East. So-called mixed-use buildings have been thriving in China, the U.S. and Dubai, home to the world’s tallest skyscraper, the 828-meter high Burj Khalifa building, according to Skyscraperpage.com.

Alexander Kraft, Chairman and CEO of Sotheby’s International Realty for France & Monaco, said Iskenderov may be right.

“They really plan to have services that you don’t get anywhere else today in Paris,” he said in an interview yesterday. “Owners will have all access to the luxury hotel services, maid service, room service, etc. If all this becomes true, I think there can and probably will be a new market for it, but it has to be done right. You will have incredible views over all of Paris.”


[...]

“In my view, this project is really targeted almost 100 percent toward foreign buyers, first-time buyers who really want to have peace of mind, who don’t want to renovate in Paris, who don’t want to be bothered with maintenance and upkeep, and who are really looking for all the services they have in Hong-Kong, Moscow, Tokyo, etc,” said Sotheby’s Kraft.

[...]

“The Paris market is very poor for luxury apartments,” Iskenderov said. “When you see the London market, the New York market, the Miami market, you have a lot of choice.”

Et le meilleur pour la fin: [img]http://i44.************/1zpjl85.gif[/img]

"If Paris can pull this project off, these skyscrapers will become the face of modern France."

Xavier Niel one of France's most famous tech entrepreneurs will open the world's largest tech start ups incubator in Paris.

Quote:
In 2016, Paris to be home to the biggest startup incubator in the world (30,000m²)



Yesterday at Paris’ classic town-hall Hôtel de Ville, the city of Paris officially launched the anxiously anticipated and much debated 1000 Startups @ La Halle Freyssinet project, which will be largely financed by Xavier Niel with additional financial support from the Caisse des Dépôts. Starting in 2016, the Halle Freyssinet, an old shipping and freight center in Paris 13th arrondissement previously owned by SNCF and now used as a conference center, will be completely transformed into a massive tech incubator with 30,000m² of co-working and office space, accelerators, incubators, event facilities, and other services focusing on the tech community. 30,000m² of the space will be specifically targeted to the 1000 startups the project owners are looking to attract into the space. The city is also hoping that the new tech hub will help to revitalize the area around Halle Freyssinet which would certainly welcome the economic boost.



Although questions still remain about connecting Paris’ current tech-hub, namely the Sentier area, with the future Halle Freyssinet tech-hub, what they have planned does look really exciting. The design is well conceived, attractive and, assuming all pretty much proceeds as planned, will likely be a welcoming hub of activity for tech talent from France and further afield. When the idea to do this was first proposed and the possibility was evoked by Minister Pellerin that the new tech-hub could be outside of Paris, there was quite a bit of commentary from the tech community, media (including Rude Baguette) and others that locating it in Paris would be the wiser choice. The government, smartly, opened up an online initiative to gather feedback from the wider tech community on the project, which clearly looks to have been taken to heart.

Another wise move was getting a private sector star such as Xavier Niel to agree to largely finance the project. Knowing that they no longer have the (financial) means or, perhaps, the know-how to take on projects such as this, the government is clearly looking to the public-private model as a way to both achieve some of their goals and get the business community and its leaders more involved in the development of France’s digital economy.

This big, audacious initiative for the city, government and, of course, the consortium leading the build-out (lead by Xavier Niel and Jean-Pierre Jouyet DG of Caisse des Dépôts) is one which France should be publicizing globally. The fact that the English version of the site was available from day 1 of the project launch, is a good sign that they have every intention of leveraging this initiative to show that France, and particularly Paris, is very serious about increasing its prominence on the global digital stage.

Writting "reopening" for Beaugrenelle mall sounds like that this is a renovation.
While there were an old shopping mall at this place, this new mall is completely new and bigger.
The previous mall was demolished.
