The Tour Maine-Montparnasse is reported to contain asbestos and as a result, will need a complete abatement and renovation.

Reported by Good and Cyril on the "Forum Francophone":

NEW TOWERS!

Architecte: Philippe Chiambaretta

Developper: Foncière des Régions

Status: project

The towers as seen in the actual skyline (without Generali, Phare, Air 2, D2, and Majunga):



Height is unknown but I would say 230m for the taller one and 150 or 160m for the "short" one.

Ah! Yes! Thank you both!

Anyway, it doesn't really matter. They look great in La Defense. Theyre my favourite proposals for the cluster now

No. I would be over the bloody moon if something like that was proposed for CW, or even the city of London. I do not try to hide my dislike of Generali and Phare, but this, I like very much. I've grown up since I cam here you know (I really have)

Infact, before you posted that I went and posted all the renders in a Paris thread in the UK forum and said how much I liked it
