Paris only looks the way it does because of Haussmann. Without him it would have looked like every other old European city.

^ Not bad at all, even though disproportionate for Paris' skyline and not innovative at all, but very sculptural, monolithic, impressive, yet slender.

What's the proposed height? Architect? Any link?

The proposed height is 555 meters i think (name of the tower), the Architects are "Architecture Interface" and the group is Hermitage who build also the twin towers of 320 meters, behind in this picture.

Yup, if they still can't start the Hermitage project (is it still opened?), what was the point of this fantasy?

Too frustrated with the old building demolition not moving forward for the hermitage tower to take place, they are dreaming of a project raising from the water, in the middle of the Seine.

Because there are still some inhabitants in the buildings, when they will leave the construction will start. But they don't want to go :/

The new Bercy Arena looks like a Vauban's fortification.

What is this project Tour 555 ? I ve never seen it before ? What is the height of this tower ? I really doubt that ll be built one day ... When we know how far is the way to build a tower in Paris (cf: Tour Fare, Tours Hermitages, Tour Pyramide, Tour Signal, etc...).
And you say that is a 2010's project ? Oo

And to answer your question Hermitage is still open of course.
Last legal recourse are being fixed, and Hermitage group hope start operations in 12 or 18 months.

This project was launched in 2006, 8 years ago.
Shard took 13years to be erected: this is a "normal" process in Europe for such projects (2x320m high in a very dense district, 2bn€ of private investment)

Great News for New Samaritaine : official Go from administrative Court to resume and finish work on Rivoli Side
This is 450M€ of 100% private investment at the heart of the city

Social housing + luxury mall, seriously? And what's going on with that facade? Is it just a teaser or are they gonna replace a Parisian historical facade with this... nonsense?
