Sounds like you are basing your opinions on what you see in this thread, without really knowing the city, where in it the projects are built, what the context is and how the projects fit those contexts. Fact is, the vast majority of what you see here is either peripheral or suburban. For example, when you see an address like "Porte de ..." (like for the project you were reacting at), that translates as "Gate of...", which means that place is at the one of the exits off the city towards a suburb. There is very little to "destructure" there, those are actually places where new buildings can actually help. You can look up in this case the Porte de la Chapelle area in Street View, and come back to tell us your impressions after.

Inner Paris has some of the most draconian rules in terms of destruction, height regime and respecting the existing context. They are so strict that a lot of Parisian users here are fed up with it and call it dismissively a "museum city". This is usually the debate being had in the French section, whenever I happen to go there. It is getting more and more annoying to try and find a middle ground between the valid, reality-based criticism of those who want to be able to see construction and improvement taking place in their city, on one hand, and the comments I see here on a regular basis that dismiss the city as destroying itself, based on nothing but lack of knowledge and understanding of what's actually happening.

CDG Express / 1,9 Milliards d'Euros / 2023

Quote:
Si tout se passe bien, les travaux devraient démarrer en 2017 pour une mise en service en 2023. Sur 32 kilomètres de voies SNCF, dont une voie nouvelle de huit kilomètres entre Mitry-Mory et l’aéroport. Complètement indépendantes du RER B, pour ne pas géner les circulations déjà malmenées.

C'est donc bien la gare de l'Est avec une "virgule" souterraine par la gare du Nord qui a été retenue comme terminus parisien. "La gare du Nord est déjà saturée avec le RER B", justifient les conseillers ministériels, indiquant que "le tracé ne change pas : c'est celui de la déclaration d'utilité publique de 2008".
http://www.mobilicites.com/fr_actual...e_77_3029.html

Quote:
Le PDG d'ADP, Augustin de Romanet, a salué "une très grande date pour Charles-de-Gaulle". "Le fait que le ministre ait montré son engagement la rend irréversible", a-t-il ajouté. "Ces nouvelles infrastructures (...) sont nécessaires pour renforcer l'attractivité de l'un des aéroports les plus importants d'Europe et plus largement de la destination France", a-t-on renchéri chez Air France. Même son de cloche du côté du Medef: "une desserte optimisée de Roissy constitue un enjeu majeur pour l'économie francilienne", a souligné l'organisation patronale.

D'ici à 10 ans, Roissy devrait accueillir 80 millions de passagers, 20 millions de plus qu'aujourd'hui. "A cet horizon, l'autoroute A1 sera complètement saturé ", fait-on valoir chez ADP.

Majunga turned out really nicely.

Those low-rises in the foreground need to go or at least be renovated. Their asymmetrical facades are really irritating...

This is a housing building, so indeed, it would be very difficult to destroy it (or we can maybe do like buildings that were on Hermitage Plaza's place ...), so the fastest way to make something is to renew them, like the others LD housing low-rises.

^ Nice! Will they remove the amusement park, then? The space where it is placed (I think) will be dedicated to the water pool.

Actually I don't know what they will do with. Maybe replace it on the pedestried esplanade or on one side of the water pool.

Tramway / T5

The forecasts of attendance were widely exceeded, 44 000/day against 30 000 expected. Idem for T1, T2, T3, and maybe for the futur T6.

Purchases of news trains are expected, we have just to wait end-2015...

In french:http://www.leparisien.fr/espace-prem...14-3501691.php

A map of all tramways in Paris:
