Keep cool Brisavoine... I know you didn't mean to be rude, but honnestly, even the regular guy in the streets of Paris isn't aware of any of these projects. And Amsterdam may not be far from Paris, but I don't know what are the major urbanistic projects which are currently being proposed in that city.

The restructuration and heightening works of the AXA tower are now getting really serious!

Here's a comparison between the current tower (left) and what it should become (right):




Demolition works are now clearly visible:





And the crane is raising up:






Here's an information poster showing that the circumference of this crane will be enough to reach any point of the tower, and there should not be a second one:

It's likely to be the tallest crane in Paris metro area.

It's not that complicated to open the Amsterdam thread to find out. Even a "cooled" guy like you should have enough energy left to look for the thread.

OOh! Nice tower!

Why they can't just implode the current building? It's much easier and faster.

We cannot implode the current building because it is too young for demolition.

That's sad... this is not my favourite angle from La Défense. That's probably because I'm not such a fan of the Scor building. Actually, JP would have probably picked a better angle to get the picture... something like, I dunno... the roof of the Prefecture. With a nice zoom it would have been perfect.

42 years, or possibly longer than that.

It has been revealed by Emporis that the tower was renovated in 1999. Does this mean no height increase?
