I love it too but I perfectly understand its bad reputation. It's a good piece of architecture (not of urban space arrangement, though).
Yes, i understand that when it showed up, people where shocked of its radical, non apologetical, and maybe even brutal appearance. It differed very much from the - at the time - usual unitary signmarks of parisian architecture. With that said, i think the architecture is beautiful and the height gives the area a dramatic hilly characteristic. For me, its as parisian as the Eiffel Tower.

They were amazing this year. And with the 2024 that popped up, seems like Paris is very keen on getting olympics!!

My goal is to find a way to participate in opening ceremony lol.

The tower is pretty good, but not in this place.

Not many people are opposed to this Europecity project. This will create around 5% of France's total employment apparently.

That sounds off to me, there are about 27.3 million people employed in France, if this accounts for 5% of Total employment, it will mean 1.37 million jobs are created by this project, (more that one in ten people in the greater Paris Area)....

If it is the case however I cannot even begin to imagine the amount of shops that will have to close their doors to make place for this

He probably meant to say UNemployment. That would make something like 150.000 jobs, which still seems quite a huge number so i doubt about it.
15.000 why not, that' still a lot, and that would be more like 0.5%.

I'm trying to find this, but I can't see it anymore. It was somewhere on the Europacity site saying 100 000 + jobs.

Maybe it's direct + indirect. The temporary jobs linked to the construction site, and the long term ones once Europa city is finished. Still seems huge to me.
