The map showing the borders of the future EPT (equivalent to London boroughs) of the Greater Paris Metropolis has been unveiled by the prefect of the Paris Region.

The Greater Paris Metropolis will be divided into 12 EPTs, like the apostles. All the names indicated on the map below are temporary names.

In the National Assembly last week, the left-wing deputies rejected the entry of the right-wing commune of Chelles into the Greater Paris Metropolis, so it's not shown on the map. (the mayor of Chelles is furious but he will now have to join an intercommunal structure with neighboring communes in Seine-et-Marne outside of the Greater Paris Metropolis).

What's odd on this map is that the right-wing commune of Verrières-le-Buisson, whose entry into the Greater Paris Metropolis the left-wing deputies in the National Assembly have also rejected, is nonetheless shown on the prefect map as belonging to the Greater Paris Metropolis (EPT T2). Like

Apparently the mayor of Verrières-le-Buisson is even more furious than the mayor of Chelles, so he wrote to the prefect to have his commune enter the Greater Paris Metropolis, and if his demand is rejected he will sue the French State in courts.

Last but not least, many voices now say the Greater Paris Metropolis is way too small (in particular, it includes only a quarter of CDG Airport, and it doesn't include the university, research and scientific campuses on the plateau of Saclay).

What we know for sure is that the Greater Paris Metropolis will come into existence on January 1, 2016 with the borders and EPTs indicated on the map, but we know from insiders that if the Socialists keep the Paris Region in the regional elections next December, the government has secretly decided that the Greater Paris Metropolis would be enlarged to cover the entire region and merged with the regional authority. The likelihood that the extremely unpopular Socialists would keep the Paris Region in the regional elections is anyway very low, but who knows.

I wonder what's the point of big fireworks on the 13th.

How were they ever allowed to build that black, imposing structure to the right of the Eiffel Tower?

On the left? Again, this was the stupidity of the 1960s as I told you earlier. Hope the Tour Montparnasse is destroyed in my lifetime.

Don't touch Tour Montparnasse. It's not great but it's there...

It looks weird just standing alone at that height. If it was more modern (of this time period and not 60s) maybe it would be better.

It came about in a traumatic fashion for the locals, it would take generations for the wound to heal. Further on, those inclined to dislike contemporary insertions weren't helped by a series of such interventions that would have helped them get used to it all, the TM remains on its own in the city.
I love it too but I perfectly understand its bad reputation. It's a good piece of architecture (not of urban space arrangement, though).
