This is an old post but I'll clarify, everyone in France uses incorrect terms to describe its political alignment.

Extreme left = communism (in the litteral way, that is bordeline anarchist)
Communist = socialist (like in the soviet union)
Socialist = social-democrat
Greens = dictatorial kumbaya
Democrat = social-liberal (like in the US)
UMP = conservative right
Extreme right = nationalistic right

I think this XXL glass-walled corridor on 360 m is without equivalent in Europe.

I held high stakes for D2, but the facade turns out really disappointing imho.

Concernant le projet Europa City, un débat public organisé par la Commission nationale du débat public aura lieu dans le courant de l’année 2015.

Je le sais, ces grands projets suscitent des interrogations tant ils représentent un changement important pour notre ville. C’est la raison pour laquelle je suis particulièrement attaché à ce que les débats se tiennent à chaque fois que nécessaire et à ce que nous travaillions rapidement pour rendre ces futurs changements plus concrets et plus compréhensibles.

Mais ces projets doivent être réalisés car ils sont l’avenir de Gonesse. Le développement durable, c’est essayer de concilier à la fois l’économie, le social et l’environnement et non pas d’opposer les uns aux autres. C’est en tout cas le sens de notre action avec les projets que nous menons et le vote de dimanche dernier montre que cette démarche est la bonne.

Les hauts lieux branchés et festifs de Paris (comme le IIIe arrondissement justement) sont confrontés au problème des nuisances sonores qui dérangent les riverains de ces quartiers. Dans la capitale, pas de terrasses ouvertes toute la nuit, pas de concert improvisé à partir de 3 heures du matin. Un créneau à prendre pour Europa City qui va s'éveiller au moment où Paris s'endormira. Car le méga centre commercial et ludique du Vald'Oise pourra fonctionner 24 heures sur 24. Un lieu qui ne dort pas et situé, en RER, à seulement 10 minutes du IIIe arrondissement…
Europa City will work 24/24

La Jeune Rue | III Arrondissement | Restaurants and cultural facilities | U/C



Quote:
Real estate savant Cédric Naudon is transforming an overlooked corner of bohemian Paris into a world-class destination for food and design.

IF YOU WANDER DOWN Paris's Rue du Vertbois this month you'll find new signs of life hidden behind once-vacant storefronts. A sustainable seafood store designed by Tom Dixon has opened just up the block from a new tapas bar by Jasper Morrison. The nearby Korean street-food restaurant was conceived by Milan-based architect and designer Paola Navone, the butcher shop by her compatriot Michele De Lucchi.

I'd say there is already Hermitage going on for the housing. That said, it's obviously not made for the middle class so yeah, more residentials towers would be welcome. Altrought this part (north of the axis) i very oriented buisness (despite some 70's lowrizes).
The south has more mixity, and host already residentials litte towers, along with news projects being unveiled, such as a tower from Jean Nouvel (something like cristal tower).

Btw , nice looking and classy little tower

Alto Tower looks pretty nice but the more I look at those renders the more I think Hermitage Towers are being built in the wrong location!

Sorry for my off topic but I found one interesting old project - Viollet le-Duc’s project for the completion of Notre-Dame towers:
