Out of the blue, Paris becomes booming! It's great to see all these developments, it was quiet in Paris for too long.

Okay, so here is a list of the current projects in Paris. It ranks the project from the most advanced to the least. I'm not sure the list is complete though :
  • Tour CBX (142m) : inaugurated
  • Tour Exaltis (72m) : soon inaugurated
  • Tour T1 (185m) : construction
  • Tour Granite (183m) : construction
  • Tours de Levallois (2x165m) : approved
  • Tour Mozart, Issy (97m) : approved
  • Hôtel Méridien La Défense (83m) : approved
  • renovated Tour AXA (225m) : in progress of approval
  • Tour du Palais de Justice (115m) : proposed
  • Tour Nouvel (200m) : proposed
  • LD 2015 (1x400m, 1x300m, 4x200m-250m) : being elaborated, no renderings yet.
  • Tours d'Issy (2x180m) : being elaborated, no renderings yet.
  • Tours de Neuilly (2x160m) : being elaborated, no renderings yet.

In that list, there are no less than 21 highrise buildings including 16 above 150 meters and 8 above 200 meters !!

@Metropolitan
Can you be more accurate on the status of some these projects or it's the only piece of news we have ?

For instance, is the Tour du Palais de justice already submitted for planning or is it still in the preplanning stage?

I have no more news about the Tour du Palais de Justice, but according to the available renderings, I doubt a final design have been elaborated yet. The project seems to be planned for 2009.


Here is the current rendering of the tower, which is very simple :

Just posting this nice rendering by Metropolitan from the francophone forum. This is how Paris will look when the current projects are completed in 2015. The skyscrapers whose exact designs are unknown yet are represented as blue nondescript shapes, but their heights and locations are accurate (as indicated by La Défense Authority). All other skyscrapers on the picture are either already built or under construction. For a sense of dimensions, the tallest skyscraper on the picture is 400 m tall, or about the same height as the destroyed WTC in NYC.

Also, for those interested in numbers, I calculated some interesting statistics. If the current population growth rates of France and Paris remain the same over the next 9 years (most demographers think it is very likely they will), then in 2015 at the time when all the skyscrapers are completed in Paris there should be between 63.8 and 64.2 million inhabitants in France (metropolitan France), and 12.3 million inhabitants in the Paris metropolitan area.

The skyscrapers to be built by the FADESA Group are the two 165 m (540 ft) skyscrapers that will be built in Levallois-Perret. They don't appear in the picture above, due to the angle of the picture. The will be located to the right of La Défense, slightly off the picture.

It was reported that there are projects to build two 180 meters (590 ft) skyscrapers in Issy-les-Moulineaux. This adds to the already long list of skyscrapers that are planned or under construction in Paris. After the announcements of skyscrapers in La Défense, Levallois-Perret, Neuilly-sur-Seine, and now Issy-les-Moulineaux, it appears that 10 years from now there should be a constellation of skyscraper clusters spread out in the western area of Paris, unlike the current situation where there is only La Défense and Montparnasse.

I created a small map to show the location of all the skyscrapers already existing, under construction, or planned (only skyscrapers taller than 150 m/500 ft are indicated).

I was in Paris this weekend, and on the roof of Tour Montparnasse. What a great view! And free from tourists, no queue at all. Quite a contrast to those thousands queued up under the Eiffel Tower...
Took loads of stunning pics, which is why I hate myself so badly because I managed to loose the memory-card from my camera somewhere between CDG and Heathrow... 250 memories from Paris lost forever arg!

At least I got a few videos.
