Only 22, It is not enouth, in an other way it is only La Defense.
I hope that other +150m tower will be planned outside la Defense.
Actually there is the two skycrapers planned in Levallois (165m) and the two towers planned in Neuilly (160m).
But we want more more, especially in the eastern part of Paris.

Hermitage has pledged to relocate all current occupants in the Hauts-de-Seine département by proposing a housing standard at least equal or even higher.
It is expected that construction work will begin in 2010 for delivery in 2014. Composed of two buildings of different heights, H-shaped, crowned by two lookouts special cuts, the twin tower designed by architect Jacques Ferrier for Hermitage will rise to 309 metres.
I hope the locals will kill the project. The opposition is increasing and for the better I hope.
These twin towers are among the worst designs I've ever seen for a big western metropolis....mind you, on par with Moscow.

Forget it Minato Ku, Manuel is just here to create havoc, as usual. Judging by the PMs I receive, this thread is seen by mostly non-French forumers, some living very far from France and nonetheless quite interested in Parisian projects, even though they don't necessarily participate.

This project was a competitor for the Tour Signal that was not selected, and you perfectly know it.

Retourne faire tes pitreries dans le forum francophone Manuel. Là-bas tu disposes de soutiens, mais ici tu ne vas pas trouver grand monde pour soutenir ton attitude provocatrice et arrogante.

Npuvel is an amzing architect and his buildings are always better in real life than in renderings... just look at his tokyo tower. This will be an AMAZING building... dont doubt it! The Hermitage howevere...

Did you put Carpe Diem? I can't see it.

As for sizing the towers on such renders, it's always difficult, but I see a problem with New Axa (225m roof) and Hermitage (309m). Either New Axa is too tall or Hermitage is too short. No?

yes, Carpe Diem is on left side of Majunga, a part is behind Descartes...
for heights, yes it's difficult but i think with the difference of levels between the bank of Seine and the rest of LD, it should be like that... but i'mnot entirely sure...

Axa is too big but Air² is also too short.
The roof of Hermitage seem me exagerated.

Lol the mayor of Puteaux in an other way, she is quite right the project is far to the first annoncement.
La Defense is too boxy, it need spire.... of Bled.

You should explain for non-Parisian forumers that Jean Nouvel's tower will be built on the part of La Défense that belongs to the municipality of Puteaux, of which Ms Ceccaldi is the mayor after having toppled her father in a drama worthy of the best telenovelas. As such she could block everything, or delay things for a long time, given that there is no Greater Paris authority over her.

This was only to be expected, considering that they chose the boxiest and in my opinion ugliest tower, in complete contradiction with the goal of building less boxy towers at La Défense. If only Ms Ceccaldi could manage to have Libeskind's tower built instead. One can always dream... More realistically Nouvel will have to considerably alter his initial project. Hopefully something less boxy and less 1970s.

In this case I fully agree with her (except her complaint that no social housing was planned in the tower), although all she can do is have Nouvel change his design a bit, but she can't replace it with Libeskind's or another tower now that the jury officialy made the announcement.
