Hope my comment won't seem too conservative...but I feel really bad about destroying this tower which is, to my mind, one of the prettiest in LD. I mean, it has a striking design and it's far better than most of the low towers of the area.
Il will regret it.

And again, do you have a reliable source? Mohamed posted something similar on the french forum but this info seems to have appeared just out of nothing!

Densaga, in your list of project, you have forgotten to add the heightening of Tour AXA to 225 meters and also, even if it's not in La Défense, the twin towers in Levallois-Perret (165 meters each).

If this is true about that new potential tower in place of Aurore though, that's pretty neat and proof that the program has been coming along nicely in the last few months and gathering speed.

I agree with you that the exterior design of Aurore isn't so bad. In the same area, I think Europe is uglier. But apparently, costs are very expensive to modernize the tower and make it competitive again on the market. In such a context, I understand why they would like to build something fully new.

There are strong chances that a new tower will be built there, some insiders seem to confirm this. However, there's no reliable indication about its height currently. The 200 meters figure is only a very gross estimation.


Anyway, as things are getting a bit confusing, I will just post an update about informations we have on +150m highrise buildings in Paris :

According to the latest news, Aurore won't be the only one to be destroyed in this sector, but its lowrise neighbour Veritas (8 floors) will also be destroyed). And as things appear, not only one highrise building will be built instead, but actually two highrise buildings :

- The first one, supposed to replace Aurore, should have 75,000 m² of office space.
- The second one, supposed to replace Veritas, should have 55,000 m² of office space.

Apparently, the building replacing Veritas has strong chances to be unveiled soon. As for the one replacing Aurore, it seems to be more complicated since one of the owners, which owns 3 floors, refuse to sell it. Something rather strange considering the building is unoccupied since 2003 (There were asbestos in it).

Anyway, all this to say that the first stage of the renovation plan of La Défense has still many surprises to make us discover.

Could someone try to make a rendering of La Defense 2013 with:
T1, Granite, Generali, Morphosis, Tour Ferrier (if approved), new Axa, Majunga, and locate new tour "R" (even if we still don't have a rendering for the last one)

Thx

Well, it's true that Emporis is a real mess when it goes about Paris. Firstly, if you want some updates about La Défense you shouldn't check the Paris page but actually the pages of Nantere, Courbevoie and Puteaux (and I don't mention the pages of Levallois-Perret, Issy or Boulogne for other highrise projects). Second, very few of the projects are actually updated... and when it goes about Tour Phare, it's written on the Courbevoie page when it's actually located in Puteaux.

Anyway, I sincerely believe they should create some kind of "Paris region" page encompassing all towers of the urban area (or at least of Paris and inner suburbs departments). It would be a lot more comfortable for the readers.
