That's fully wrong !

The building will be slightly larger at the level of the circular boulevard to follow the sidewalk. We don't know yet the use of those 5 first floors above ground but if it's the same as in most surrounding towers (Gan, AXA, etc...), it wouldn't be a carpark. But no matter the use of those floors, it's totally silly to consider them as basement floors !

Here is a sketch showing how this should like:

What is that skyscraper craze in Paris at the moment !???
This is only projects for La Défense area.

We expect some projects in other areas of the Greater Paris to be unveiled soon.

The projects in other areas of Greater Paris won't be as tall though. Unless the local councils in Clichy or Aubervilliers suddenly go crazy and decide to build a 250-300 meters skyscraper in their area. Who knows! The good thing about competition is that once it's launched, it's hard to stop it. Because of Greater Paris's political division into hundreds of tiny municipalities, at the moment there are about 10 municipalities (local councils) we know of that are competing for towers in Greater Paris, beside La Défense. Although most of them will probably build only average skyscrapers (150-200 meters range), one or two of them might surprise us. We'll find out soon I guess.

Nice view of the 180m T1 Tower under construction in La Défense. The tower is approaching half of its final height.

You're wrong.

T1 is currently the height of Sequoia/ SFR so 115m

T1's 185m so it's more than the half.

It rises too quickly to keep pace these days. Lol. If you're right about your measurement (to me, after checking the pic again, it looks more like 100m, but anyway), then it has reached 62% of its final height. Still pretty close to half.

How come there are so few updates for Tour Granite in comparison with it's counterpart at the other end of the district?

Work goes at a slightly slower pace on tour Granite. Also, for T1 Tower we have a guy who lives just in front of it and takes weekly pictures, which is not the case with tour Granite.

Anyway, since you're asking, here is tour Granite:

Latest pic as of yesterday (December in Paris? well, global warming).


The first piece of cladding has just arrived. It looks like a very sleek white cladding.


As of December 3.

wrong, the tower is actually almost 3/4 of its future height...i don't see how you can let people know that the tower is half of his future height

this is a 180 tower here , not a 260 m tower. I seriously wonder if you actually realize what would be the height of a buildding double the height of the one in this picture you posted

give correct information please.

by the way, simply by judging the curb of this T1 tower, everyone can easily see it is NOT half its future height.

not mentionning the 30 levels already built, when the towers is only supposed to get some 40 storeys only...

Roughly 25 floors out of 36 (?) are already completed. Even including the top crown, this tower is more than half completed.

I think it will be the VIP entrance, just near the circular boulevard to accomodate people directly outgoing of their (chauffeur driven) car.

this is even so true when you consider than the first 8 levels (or 9 i'm not sure) are much higher than the other floors...then you've got the lobby level which is even higher...

So far (it's early days though) I think I prefer Granites' cladding to T1's cladding

again i'm telling you, if u come into forums ionly to hear people that agree with you, then you'd better ignore this way of communication...in the first place...

then regarding the other part of your sentence...i don't quite know what to tell you...is there a risk i go to jail for that ??? because even that i don't fear !

i'm just asking because my life certainly doesn't turn around writing in a forum or not...which seems to be the case for you now.

can we stay focused on what was the pupose of this thred : T1 TOWER.
