New update by Fabb. T1 Tower on July 11, 2007. The tower has reached its final height, at 185 m (607 ft) above ground. More work to come on the spire, to make it look more dense and opaque, but the height won't change.

It has been announced on the official website of La Défense that the tour Signal and the tower of the Ministry of Public Works will be two different skyscrapers. So far we didn't know for sure, we thought maybe they were the same skyscraper.

The tour Signal's height will be approximately 300 meters (1,000 ft) from street level. It will be located by the Rose de Cherbourg interchange in the southern area of La Défense. The architect contest is due to be launched in the coming days. The winner will be selected in the end of December or beginning of January, and that's when we should have the first renders. The tower will be (I quote) "remarkable in its architecture, meet all the requirements of sustainable development, be a mixed-use tower (offices, private dwellings, services, retail), and offer street-life at the base of tower". Street-life as opposed to most current French skyscrapers which are lifeless at their base. This tower will be the first mixed-use tower in La Défense.

As for the tower of the Ministry of Public Works, we know neither the height nor the location (although the Rose de Cherbourg location had also been mentioned for that tower). All we know is that it will contain more than 100,000 m² (1.1 million sq ft) of office space, so that means its height should also probably be around 300 meters.

In total then, La Défense will have four skyscrapers with a height around 300 meters : Generali, Phare, Signal and the Ministry of Public Works tower. It has also been rumored for several months that the Gan Tower, currently 179 m (587 ft) high, would be vacated, refurbished, and heightened to 300 meters, in which case there would be five 300m skyscrapers in La Défense by 2013. The Gan Tower heightening still needs confirmation though.

Actually La Defense is the european capital of the 180m
Tour Total 187m, Tour T1 185m, Tour Areva 184m, Tour Granite 184m, Tour Gan 179m.

It would become the european capital of the 300m.
Tour Generalli, Tour Phare, Tour Signal and maybe Ministry of Public Works tower and Tour Gan.

One of these towers needs at least to be pushed to 350m while another reduced at 280

Good view, it would be nice to add the planned skyscrapers for LD 2013.

LD needs absolutely [IMG][/IMG]a few high-skyskrapers in Puteaux (left side from the Arc de Triomphe), because there will be too much tall towers in Courbevoie (right side).

New render of Thom Mayne's 300m (1,000 ft) tour Phare on site made by I don't know who. Generali Tower is also shown faintly in the background. The other planned towers are not shown.

bonjour les gens,

I wonder if there are any updates regarding the rebuilding of Tuileries Palace? I have been waiting for many years now and I still haven't gotten any news lately. I wonder if the project was cancelled or the private foundation is still trying to get the 300 million euros budget?

A lot of people are disappointed of the results of the T1 tower (forum T1 tower 187.5m). Fron a long way off, we can see a flat roof but we can't see the spire... I hope there will be a better spire...
