i absolutly do agree with you on this point: that would have been a great opportunity to create a small cluster of midrise in this district.
But to dangerous for Mayor Anne i guess..

Anyway just stay positive: this will gerenerate so much activity ! i hope intergration with Rue de Rennes will be effective and included in the project.

Rue Colonel Driant

New building in the very center of paris, near Palais Royal (rue du Colonel Driant), where there was previously a gas station; there are 15 flats, and there will be a cheese shop ("bar à fromages" ) on the ground floor :

This is what demagoy is doing in Paris: to "protect" Paris identity and uniformity, Municipality fear to innovate in the very center (just have a look on what's happening with Samaritaine and its glass covering on Rue de Rivoli) and prefer to build such building instead of promote more ambitious architecture

Paris has no architectural freedom. The working market ist regulated by the state. Taxes are too high, there can not be an diversity developing of the city. Uniformity buildings are the consequences of a society without individual freedoms.

I noticed too that a lot of new developments in Paris look terribly dated. Claustrophobic, they use lots of concrete, have small windows and generally blocky volumes.

Actually I can't explain why, even considering the architectural homogeneity of the city. Preserving it would actually be feasible by building densely enough, respecting existing heights and volumes, and maintaining a Parisian feel.

Anyone have a clue?

'You for real?
What's the link between the regulated working market, taxes and the rest? And France isn't a dictatorship fyi.

There are a bunch of new buildings in Paris that, even if they're not crazy architectural creations, fit well with the rest of the city and are modern, even with all the constraints imposed by the city. The example above is just a horrible fail, and actually to me the problem is that no one from the city did its job to prevent such an ugly box from being built. Not that the government is too involved.

That's fantastic. "Les Berges" project was indeed a great success.

All that grass would be just gorgeous. Central Paris needs proper parks.

Totally the opposite, I like the mineral aspect of the banks. Really hope they won't put too much grass/trees.

"Central Paris" does have proper parks! (and so despite its quite high built-up density)

Actually real facts say so:

With more than 4 millions of visitors in only less than eighteen months, we could easily say that it has being a great success.

I visited it myself last year and it was just really spectacular, I only could have loved to see more green spaces, but it seems that they will improve it

Totally agree.

And not only parks, it could be really nice to see more green spaces in general.

I haven't been there yet but from what I've seen it looks pretty "cheap". I especially regret they kept the road as it is instead of putting a nice pavement.

Not to mention the chalk-drawn patterns on the ground.
