Nothing special about it, no character.

It looks exactly like so many other projects in the world.

Some background information about Bois-Colombes, the commune (municipality) where this office development is taking place.

Bois-Colombes is located 3 km. (2 miles) north-east of La Défense, and 5 km. (3 miles) north-west of the Champs-Élysées.

Bois-Colombes (literally "Colombes Woods") was created in 1896 by detaching its territory from the commune of Colombes. At the moment it is one of the most dynamic and fastest growing communes in Greater Paris. Between 1999 and 2005 its population increased by 2.3% per year, which is a population growth as fast as in booming Atlanta or Madrid. In 1999 there were 4,928 people working in Bois-Colombes, but that number is probably significantly higher today.

Microsoft Europe Africa and Middle East HQ will be in Val de Seine business district

Quote:
Microsoft à Issy : c'est signé !

Le 26 février dernier, Microsoft a annoncé que ses sièges sociaux se regrouperont à Issy-les-Moulineaux au plus tard au début 2009. Microsoft France, implanté à Paris et aux Ulis, Microsoft EMEA (Europe, Moyen-Orient, Afrique), implanté à la Défense, et MSN s'installeront ainsi « au coeur d'un pôle dédié aux technologies de l'information et de la communication » a déclaré Éric Boustouller, Président de Microsoft France.

Les 1 300 salariés de Microsoft occuperont 34 500m2 dans l'immeuble EOS Generali. Situé quai Franklin Roosevelt, ce bâtiment privilégie l'accessibilité grâce à une excellente desserte des transports en commun et le renforcement prévu des infrastructures routières. Il bénéficie également d'une position centrale qui favorise le rapprochement avec la communauté TIC et une prise directe dans un bassin d'emplois et un pôle d'activités tertiaires.

Conçu par les agences d'architecture Arquitectonica et Bridot-Willerval, le bâtiment porte le nom d'EOS en référence à la déesse grecque de l'aurore. Car c'est bien une nouvelle étape qui attend le géant de l'informatique : après le lancement du nouveau système d'exploitation Vista, qui a mobilisé jusqu'à 10 000 ingénieurs en cinq ans, Microsoft projette de se diversifier
dans les futures générations de terminaux portables, de décodeurs multifonctions ou de consoles de jeux.

L'annonce de l'arrivée de Microsoft intervient seulement quelques jours après la présentation du prochain siège social de Bouygues Telecom, immeuble qui remplacera l'actuelle Tour EDF (lire à ce sujet le Point d'Appui n°401).

Le bâtiment EOS, futur siège du groupe Microsoft.

Orly is the second international airport in Greater Paris (the number one is CDG Airport) for those who don't know. CDG Airport is to the north of Paris, whereas Orly is to the south.

La Défense is to the west-northwest of Central Paris, but it is not an airport. Lol.

Yeah, there's only two real airports around Paris. Well, there's also Beauvais even more on the North for low cost companies and Le Bourget for private jets, but globally, Orly and Roissy represents more than 90% of aircraft traffic for the Paris area.

For a sense of geography, this classical music concert hall will be located at La Villette (19th arrondissement), home of the futuristic Science Museum of Paris as well as the Géode cinema.

Géode cinema in the foreground, science museum in the background.


Another view of the science museum.

I like that design, I think it will complement La Villette pretty well.
