It is the Drugstore publicis, an old old building of the 70's renovated in 2000's
They added a cool cladding on the old 70's facade.

Too bad they cancelled the Halles project. Even a toilet would be better than the actual building...by the way, the actual place smells piss.

Talking about Europe, I personnaly think that Russia IS part of Europe, and unlike eklips I think that people are not this stupid and that they don't only sum up Russia to vodka+cold.

They haven't cancelled it yet. I just said the administrative court of appeal is likely to cancel it, that's all. Also it'll be interesting to see if they cancel just the gardens or also the building.

Sorry I disagree, the current construction is really quite boring and certainly not something Paris should have today. Even when it was built, it may have been impressive in Europe, but there were far greater inner city shopping centers around the world, many in far smaller cities.

Today it simply looks tired and wasted. When I first visited it, I walked through it for 30minutes trying to find Les Halles, without realizing I was actually in it. That's how nondescript it actually is. When I finally realized I was in the shopping arcade that all Paris guides write about, I was simply gobsmacked.

The park next to it is pretty nice though.

The rendering of the twin towers in Pont de Neuilly near la Defense by Claude Vasconi Look at here

The height of these twin towers 220m.

And for sure, Champs Elysées like main avenues of Paris offers a mix of styles.


Near to Champs Elysées two another projects:

Hotel Marriott by PORTZAMPARC


and
Office building by GAUTRAND

Yes, it looks really nice. Let's hope il will be built. So far it hasn't been approved yet (not that we know of at least). In any case it's much better than the proposal that existed before, height-wise (2 x 220m vs. 2 x 160m for the old proposal), and shape-wise (the design of the old proposal was not as daring and soaring as this one). I really like this new proposal, it looks like some sort of space-age entrance gate to La Défense (La Défense is located across the Seine River to the right of these twin skycrapers).

That's what the old proposal looked like: 2 x 160m in Neuilly.

Wow, la grande classe!
I'm going to pray for it to be built. Never seen such an exciting project in LD!

I agree, I just can't think of the Forum des Halles as a shoping mall. It feels more like a huge metro/RER station with shops.

Well, it's not that far from LD... right at the other side of the Seine.

Awesome news, and the rest is interesting too.
