Anyway, here's a large version which has been found by Nikos of one of the renderings.

One of the two small towers seen from the concrete slab (so its base is hidden on this pic, making it shorter than it is already):

Okay, here's a map of La Défense showing all the known projects in that area. It's been a bit of a work but it's finally done.

The "unrevealed projects" are actually those for which we know that a contest has been launched, but we don't know the winning design yet.

Metropolitan, so at the end of the day what's that 350m NGF tower at the Rose de Cherbourg that the Puteaux mayoress talked to you about? What do you reckon? At first we thought she meant the tour Signal, but perhaps after all she was meaning the Ministry of Public Works tower? In that case that means the Ministry of Public Works tower would be 350m NGF high (approx. 300m/1,000 ft from street level)...

Oh, by the way, renovated Axa is actually 240m high, you forgot to include the spire. And T1 Tower is 187.5m high as I explained in the French forum.

And the height of PB22 A is more 235m than 210m.

Radio interview of Bernard Bled two days ago, for those who understand French. He's the director of La Défense Authority (EPAD) and he talks about the tour Signal whose architect contest was launched last Monday.

Here's the link:

Good project.It will add diversity to LD's skyline!
These towers need their own thread in the Highrises section to let more people know about them.

"Paris Plage" is one of the main summer event in Paris. Even though the weather was crap, it appears that some mayors wanted to enjoy it and perhaps bring home some ideas:




Hello Ken!







Ken is visibly very happy I recognized him! (Nice Adidas shoes, BTW)

PS: For those who don't know, Ken Livingston is London's mayor

Oh boy! I had a tough time understanding this one! Actually, you were answering to Bnmaddict's post at the bottom of page 1 of this thread!

Anyway, welcome to Skyscrapercity Implem!
I hope you'll have a good time over here.

Wow, cool. Shame you didn't get to talk to him bn, I bet he would have been very interested in conversation regarding both London and Paris tower projects

He was there with wife and kids leastening at some music concert, I didn't want to disturb him (and was a bit shy, of course)... But he seems to be really cool! Just after I took the last picture, he said hello to me waving his hand!

Yeah, it would have been a bit rude to go up and talk to him while he was enjoying the concert with family lol, ut it's cool that you saw him and that he acknowledged you Apperently he is a very nice guy, another forumer got to talk to him when he bumped into him in City Hall once, and they spoke about the Shard. He is a big skyscraper fan just like us luckily. I wonder if he knows of the Paris projects?
