For the time being.

But we share your frustration.
Actually it coud be close to 7.5 millions and a big bigger in area if some 'communes' ask for being integrated in the closest EPCI (new entities of the Grand PAris)

I think the twin towers are in great location and will really soar. They could well become among the best looking towers in Europe.

We should stick to such designs, and Paris will still be the most beautiful city in the world for the decades to come :-)

Paris's beauty rely mostly on the haussmanian, medieval parts, the Seine banks, the hills and typical neighboroods, a few highligths, great museums, gastronomy, castles and parks, and this is all forever

I didn't realise Paris also had issues with flight paths. What flight paths would they affect if they were built towards the back of the cluster ?

Does anyone know what's being built here? Just a big hole there now. I looked for a "permis de construire" but surprisingly there aren't any.

I do agree, this is why Paris is my home town in this world

I was encouraging nice modern additions to that tremendous legacy.

It is due to the proximity of Paris-Le Bourget Airport.

Barring surprises, no building taller than Phare is possible in the upper area:

^ Nice! I went there recently and I didn't suspect the garden is finished, it still looked like a chantier in progress.

They have done a really great job with Les Halles! I remember finding the old structures to be quite odd and not too nice overall. When I visited Paris a couple of years ago, I remember just walking around the streets and then I bumped into them and was not too sure what to think of the whole complex, but now it is definitely nice.
