I love it! In reality, I think it will turn out to be one of the most unique buildings in the world.

It's an awful design. I just don't like to think that a building could be pregnant.

It has some funny angles, but it's pretty and incredebly interesting... I think 21th century architecture deserves this building.

This isn't a tower, this is a sculpture. This is one of the best projects, can't wait till this one goes u/c.

A lot of thing are in my mind.

Firstly, What's going on ???

I'm french and I'm living (back) in Paris (Bastille juste behind the Bastille's Opera)

And I Love this tower, It's the real first step toward the revolution,

I mean the biggest problem in Paris it's the Parisian soul.

I mean Paris is handicapped by one thing:

The reactionary soul of the major piece of the people....

Nobody wants skyscrapers ... why ? Because the Parisian are so stupide and I'm really fed up with this.

It's everytime the battle against in the first time the people that's trying to resolve our problems like the lack of flat in Paris according to the demande and on the other side we have so Parisian who decide to argue because there are never happy so ok there are good reason to argue in Paris but we can't build by increase the edge of Paris ...
or take the green place.

So we need to build in height ...
The parisian people keep their middle ages soul !

And for the phare tower ... Do you have something in your eyes ????

That it's groundbreaking !

What ? Are you becoming to think as the OLD Parisian ?

Because you don't live here and here we have a problems and we need this to resolve them ! Not only because the lack of flat and office block but in other way "La Défence" needs it for its image . All seems to say : yes la défence it's the biggest wall street in the EU But you wrong ... it was, now I'm serious it's the city in London that steal our business office .

We need that to improve and to give a new young image in the defence and to become again a attractive place !

The best Business place is a place where there are innovation, and boldness.



Then, concerning the old video with the girl ... was is this ? lol And the song I mean it's a student repport ? Or something like that no ????

what else ,....,

Yes stop to believe Paris need and have to stay in this old building ... Remember what said the philosophers concerning the Haussmann's Building and Archi ? That was shit and waste ( for the money of France) anyway and now ??? The Haussmann's building are the
symbol of Paris (ith the Eiffel tower of course (; )

So if we heard you (and how has said a man in the old interview) we need to keep the old way with the rigid shape ... like right-angled so ... excuse me

but we ll really improve like this, in this way !


.

Sorry for my english but I don't have time to read me again, I'm in late.

But I'm looking foward yours argues because I don't talk a lot But I begin to know how you react here . lol

Unibail Rodamco to build the tallest office tower in France

10.12.2010, 17h52


Quote:
La foncière française Unibail-Rodamco a annoncé vendredi à l'AFP qu'elle avait obtenu l'autorisation de l'"Etablissement public d'aménagement de la Défense Seine-Arche" (Epadesa) de lancer la tour Phare (300 m, 69 niveaux de bureaux), qui sera en 2016 la plus haute tour de bureaux en France.
"Unibail-Rodamco et l'Epadesa ont arrêté vendredi les grands principes d'un accord technique et financier visant à concrétiser le projet de la tour Phare à Défense", a déclare Guillaume Poitrinal, PDG d'Unibail-Rodamco, un groupe membre du CAC 40.
L'investissement de 900 millions d'euros sera supporté "a priori en fonds propres" par Unibail-Rodamco (23 milliards d'euros d'actifs, 14 milliards de capitalisation boursière), a ajouté M. Poitrinal.
"Cette décision prouve la confiance du groupe dans l'avenir de la Défense et notre volonté de convaincre les entreprises de l'avantage du lieu à cause de l'avantage la connexion avec les transports, malgré une demande qui est actuellement modeste", souligne le PDG du groupe.
Au sommet de l'édifice, oeuvre de l'architecte américain Thom Maynes, devrait être édifié un restaurant gastronomique qui, selon les voeux de M. Poitrinal, "devrait être l'établissement étoilé le plus haut du monde".
Quote:
On friday, Unibail-Rodamco publicly informed the AFP (Agence France Presse) that they had been given permission by the EPADESA (Etablissement Public d'Aménagement de la Défense Seine-Arche) to launch the PHARE Tower (300 m, 69 office floors) which in 2016 will be the tallest office tower in France.
'Today, Unibail-Rodamco & the Epadesa decided on the main line of a technical & financial agreement aiming to make the PHARE TOWER project a reality at La Défense', Guillaume Poitrinal, Unibail-Rodamco's CEO said (company being part of the CAC 40)[...]
