La Defense is essentially built in the middle of a huge (pear shaped) roundabout, with the towers gathering around the inner and outer edge of the road and with a bus station, a highway, metro, RER, and and car parks underneath the central part.

This design is unusual to say the least, but in my opinion that is what makes it more than just another small business district when compared to others globally.

The problem with the roundabout design though is that when you are on foot, its very hard to cross the road and reach the center, especially when the road is a highway. Thankfully epadesa (the people in charge of LD) realised that a few years back and have been turning the LD ring road 'Boulevard circulaire' into a more pedestrian friendly city street rather than a highway. This can be seen if you look at a before after view on the Courbevoie side of LD, more so closer to the Seine.

With regards to the future, I doubt very much that epadesa will build a similar design again when they expand outwards from the original 'roundabout'.

the works for the duo tower (180m) will start next autumn according to this article today

http://www.leparisien.fr/paris-75/pa...16-5689551.php



Quote:
Le premier coup de pioche du projet Duo était annoncé pour le printemps 2016. La construction de cet ensemble immobilier conçu par Jean Nouvel (deux tours qui culmineront à 122 et 180m au-dessus de la ZAC Paris-Rive-Gauche dans le XIIIe) débutera plutôt à l’automne. «Mais le dossier avance bien. Nous respecterons notre calendrier prévoyant la livraison des bâtiments en 2020 », s’empresse de préciser Méka Brunel, présidente Europe du groupe Ivanhoé-Cambridge qui pilote le projet.

Le géant québécois de l’immobilier commercial, lauréat de l’appel d’offres lancé en 2011 par la Ville de Paris, est tenu par une clause de « précommercialisation ». Le chantier ne débutera qu’une fois que la moitié des surfaces (100 000 m2 dont 86 000m2 de bureaux) aura trouvé preneur.

Pas question pour Ivanhoé-Cambridge de révéler l’état d’avancement de ses démarches. Le showroom que l’aménageur avait ouvert début novembre, trois jours avant les attentats, dans le quartier Masséna fait en tout cas le plein. « Nous recevons entre deux et quatre visites par semaine », se félicite Méka Brunel.

En attendant d’atteindre la barre de 50% de surfaces vendues, la société québécoise se met en ordre de bataille pour un démarrage rapide du projet. Le groupe de BTP qui construira la double tour est en cours de sélection. La société qui gérera l’hôtel quatre étoiles de 120 chambres qui occupera le haut d’une des tours devrait quant à elle être désignée avant la fin mai.

I'm a little disappointed what becomes of les halles. I thought of whole monolith egg-shaped futuristic structure, and this... Well, asymmetrical, untidy, crooked something... After LV foundation and philharmonie such a nothing

"Les Halles" is really a masterpiece. Beautiful well-shaped harmonious structure.
Very good.

construction of alto is going to begin in september

http://www.thenational.ae/business/p...funded-by-adia

Quote:
Bouygues has won a €200 million (Dh838.6m) order to build a tower in the financial district of Paris that is being developed by the Abu Dhabi Investment Authority.

Linkcity Ile-de-France, the property development arm of a unit of Bouygues Construction, signed a contract to develop the Alto Tower at La Defense, Bouygues said in a statement.

The 150 metre tall tower was designed by IF Architectes and will comprise 38 floors of office space arranged in what the developer describes as an unusual flare shape.

It means the surface area of each floor will range from 700 square metres at the base to 1,500 sq m at the top.

Arabian Gulf sovereign wealth funds have become prolific investors in both residential and commercial property in European cities such as Paris and London. European commercial property investment jumped by a quarter last year to more than €238.5 billion, according to Knight Frank data.

The development will replace the Les Saisons office building and will also include shops, connecting the Ancre neighbourhood in Courbevoie with La Defense itself.

Detailed preliminary designs are expected to be completed this year with site works starting in September.

The project is scheduled to be handed over in the first quarter of 2020.

Adia confirmed the award.
