According the last Paris Crane survey published by Driver Jonas.
There were actually in Central Paris and the inner suburbs (700 km²) 1,930,000 m² or 20.8 million sq ft of office (Buildings over 1,000 m²) under in construction the 30 september
According Jonas it is the first time that they see a such high number in a crane survey.
Paris Crane Survey Nov 2007

So Paris is the second European city after Moscow wich build the most office.

Delanoe has unveiled today several VISIONS for three places around Paris - Bercy, Ivry and Porte de la Chapelle. Today those area look like more some no mans lands.
Those visions can be next year, after elections, the base for some proposals.

The Russian Company Hermitage SAS plans to build in Paris an analogue of the Federation Tower, which is currently under construction in Moscow. The 300 meter high tower with the total floor area of 250 000 square meters will be constructed in La Défense business district of Paris and promises to become the highest residential building in Europe. Beside apartments, there will be an apart-hotel and offices. The parent company of Hermitage SAS will build also an office tower with the floor area of 120 thousand square meters within the limits of Paris Conurbation.

The both towers are estimated at Eur2.5 billion. However, the French party hasn’t confirmed the project yet. Hermitage SAS has got several similar residential projects in France.

Nice height, but... seriously? A miniature replica of an already underwhelming development in Russia? Isn't that a bit too... Las Vegas/Dubai for Paris? Surely they could come up with a unique design?

Nobody really know they said an analogue of the Federation Tower, it could be similar without being a copy.
Cyril, According me, it would be in central Paris or in inner suburbs.

so iconic as Federation tower, so ambitious as Federation tower, so important for the company...
An analogue project, not an analogue architecture for sure...

The oposition idea agains tower are really ridicoulus, seing that tower could affect the tourism but he forget that there is already very ugly tower in inner Paris and these don't affect the tourism wich is a small part of Paris economy.

The Montparnasse tower is not ugly, it is just alone, other skyscrapers in this district would be great.










All these towers are in inner Paris, not in inner suburbs

Holy crap, and I thought for a good moment Tour Signal was just some kind of EPAD employee that confused it with Phate.

Yes, a very promising mix of international starchitects and young French architects. In February, 5 finalists will be selected and their projects will be presented at the real estate forum in Cannes (MIPIM), in March. The winner will be chosen by a jury around mid-April.
I really hope the 18 projects will be revealed to to the public at the end and not just the 5 last ones (well except Viguier's project maybe ).

Anyway, I can't wait to know and admire the result, it's going to be a tough and exciting competition for all the architects involved.

Yeah yeah you're right
Hopefully Foster and Nouvel will do better than their Tour Phare.

Have you noticed the changes (for the good) of recent Foster designs? the change of leadership and the renewal of part of the team may be an encouraging news for their entry to the contest.

I'm a bit hopeless as far as RMJM are concerned but their style may fit well in La Defense.

Above all, very looking forward to seeing Zaha, Nouvel and Liebskind and the up and coming young french practices!

The hilarious piece of news of the day. (I translated into English for you)
Quote:
Human sciences "threatened" according to two Parisian schools driven to the banlieue

AFP report
November 24, 2007

Teacher-cum-researchers at the School for Advanced Studies in Social Sciences (EHESS) and at the Ecole pratique des hautes études (EPHE) in Paris protest against their move to Aubervilliers (Seine-Saint-Denis) in 2008 [note: Aubervilliers is a community just north of the 19th arrondissement of Paris across the Périphérique motorway, with a very large working-class immigrant population], arguing that it "threatens" human sciences. In a text posted on their blog (parcelle521.unblog.fr) they explain: "Due to work in order to ensure compliance with safety standards at the Sorbonne building on the one hand, and to remove asbestos in a building located boulevard Raspail (in Paris) on the other hand [note: boulevard Raspail is in one of the most upper-class areas of Paris, with few immigrants around], the EPHE and the EHESS are subjected to a decision taken in August by public authorities forcing them to move in September 2008 to the community of Aubervilliers". What's more, according to the researchers, in the relocation area, known as "parcel 521", "nothing is yet ready to accomodate them": "neither dwellings, nor residents, nor social life". Above all, "they will be away from libraries and special collections to which regular visits are vital to them". For them, ensuring compliance with safety standards and removing asbestos is "used as an alibi in a covert campaign to dismantle [human sciences]", which constitutes a "threat for human sciences".
And to think that these people who refuse to mingle with immigrants in the banlieue and prefer the cosy and pampered upper-class Left Bank are the same leftist people who conspicuously criticize Sarkozy's immigration policies and earlier took part in the student rebellions of 1968. Hypocrisy and irony at its best.
