Because a number of the new La Defense towers aren't worth their own thread.

So, let's sum up for the people who are a bit lost with all the recent anouncements.

The Ariane Tower, which is 110 m (360 ft) high and contains 27,000 m² (290,000 sq. ft) of office space, would be demolished and replaced by a new tower called Air² which would be approx. 200-220 m (650-700 ft) high and would contain 75,000 m² (800,000 sq. ft) of office space.

Aurore Tower today:




Air² Tower that would replace it:

Yup, and that Meridien Hotel hasn't started yet? Will it be ever built?

Here is a map showing the price of office real estate in the various business districts of Central Paris and inner suburbs. I think it offers a grid to understand the location of skyscraper projects as posted on this thread.

Prices on the map are rents as of October 2006 in euro per square meter per year free of charge and taxes (i.e. taxes and fees such as heating or fees for the common areas of the building are not included), so comparisons with other cities such as NYC or London should be exercised with care (in the other cities, taxes are usually included in the rents published by realtors, which can increase them by as much as 40%).

N means new office space (building just built). R means refurbished. SM means old office space (from a few years old to more than a 100 years old).

Here is a conversation formula for people not used to euros and square meters:
100 euros per m² = 12.4 US dollars per sq. ft = 6.3 sterling pound per sq. ft

A NEW TOWER FOR LA DEFENSE!!!

This one is called "Tour D2". Height is unknown, but we can count about 34 floors from the slab, and it will have a direct access from the street below (just as GENERALI). I think it should be around 170m high from the street.

Architects are Tom Sheeham and A. Béchu, surface is 55.000sqm.

Renderings:














PS: Yes, it looks like Swiss Re and Agbar, but who cares? Both are wonderful towers!!!

With all these new anouncements, a very tight cluster of skyscrapers is shaping up in the area located at the bottom of the La Défense hill. In this area we'll have the New Axa Tower (240m/790ft), the Gan Tower (180m/590ft + heightening?), the Generali Tower (318m/1,043ft), the Air² Tower (200-220m/650-700ft), and now the D2 Tower (170m/560ft) all lining up next to each other along the circular boulevard.

I've added the location of the D2 Tower on forumer Metropolitan's plan, so people can locate it more easily.

You are quite interested enough to come and post gibberish like this though!

Anyway, another nice project, every city wants it tampon now!

Good news, although I don't think it's a good idea to build an agbar/swissre type tower in LaDéfense, to each his own. Not only does it destroy the original idea in London and Barcelona, but on the long term it is also a symbol of our cities getting increasingly alike architecturaly speaking, which is something I think nobody wants.

This is the Circular Boulevard as of now. The Veritas building, which should be destroyed to make way for the D2 Tower, is the low-rise building in the lower-left corner of the picture. For an idea of dimensions, if the height anounced is correct, then the D2 Tower will be 20% taller than the CBX Tower standing in the middle of the picture. The Generali Tower, 2.2 times taller than the CBX Tower, will stand behind the photographer.
