Yeah I won't count on that for a long time.

Paris, the three departements in the petite couronne, the four in the grande couronne, the region, aswell as the F-ing intercommunalité, is just one huge clusterF**k. It’s as simple as that. Like I'm in the suburbs, and I have like my city is in 4 politically different entities it's just SO F**ked up.

The 3 departements should be abolished, but like I said for political reason this won’t happen. Because the Haut de Seine will ALWAYS be right wing, and the two others will stay left for a long time. If all the region was in the same political group, UMP or PS (I don’t give a Sh** they both are shit) this would be possible. But like it is now, nothing.

Even in 2022, if the left is still in power, but the departements are right wing nothing will happen, the politics don’t want to lose their benefits of being mayor, senate, president of an intercommunalité (at the same time of course).

Basicly just wait and see.

On the projects I will be very suprised if Europa City sees the day, I hope it will ! but i'm still very dubuious about it...

Just so you reliaze, Paris is a city and also a departement, I mean wtf ? why can't we do things simply...?

Well, ideally, the model for the IdF should be something like this :

Paris and a reasonable amount of communes—not 300—would be "districts" of Paris Métropole, which should cover all of the built-up area, at least, and be responsible for strategic planning, transport, fire departments, statistics, and so on. Responsibilities that would be taken away from the communes.

There would be no metropolitan departments (which make no sense by definition), and the métropole would also be carved out from the 4 grande couronne départements, so that powers do not overlap.

Amen.

Outside Paris métropole, the regular communes and départements would continue to exist.

Also, it would be great for people that will be finally able to say "I'm from Paris" even if they live in places as diverse as Montrouge, La Courneuve, Maisons-Laffitte, or Créteil, kind of starting to break the poshness associated with being from Paris and creating a varied city.

Same for the statistics agencies, that could consider it as a city of 10 million.

Also, the same procedure could be applied to other large cities like Lyon, Marseille, or Toulouse, that would be probably better managed as métropoles rather than at the department level.

Wasn't it this one whose restauration was financed by an American club?

Not this one, the American Friends of Versailles contributed to the restoration of the Bosquet des Trois Fontaines and the Pavillon Frais.

A white/ light coloured cladding for Tour Montparnasse is a great idea, it will significantly reduce its impact on the Parisian skyline. This may be unpopular, but I think a couple of slender (and light colored) 100m and 50m buildings next to it instead of the low rise buildings currently planned would make TM blend in to the skyline much more harmoniously.

Looks sweet, though they're missing the point, I guess.

The tower as it is now is the best-looking part of the complex. The real problem are those other massive structures that now host the Galeries Lafayette and other shops. They are incoherent, massive and outdated. The renderings don't show much change. This area should be completely reimagined, not readapted.

That cubic building is also probably the ugliest one within Paris limits and it's left untouched.

The cool thing is how they connect the whole area to the station with some public space.

Ohlala I've always hated the Montparnasse tower, but that doesn't look that bad at all.

All the hope that the glasses will be really transparent.
