Verdict before the summer...

Quote:
18 march 2011

Il y a quelques jours, lors du MIPIM 2011, nous avions interviewé dans une vidéo, Philippe Chaix le directeur de l'EPADESA qui nous annonçait que le conseil d'administration du groupe Generali prendrait sa décision le jeudi 17 mars 2011 sur la construction ou non de la tour Générali. C'est en fait, un comité d'investissement du groupe Generali qui s'est réuni le mercredi 16 mars à Rome pour prendre la décision. A l'issue de cette réunion le comité n'a toujours pas pris de décision sur l'avenir du projet, mais précise que le dossier continue d'être analysé. Une décision définitive devrait être prise avant l'été, nous a expliqué une porte parole de Generali Immobilier France.

Pour rappel Generali a signé une promesse de vente avec l'EPADESA le 17 décembre 2010 pour son projet signé Valode et Pistre. L'assureur a également obtenu un permis modificatif.
To sum up, the italian company are to make a final decision before the summer.They had initially planned to come to a decision on 16 march in Rome but they eventually failed to do so.Therefore, in less than 2 months, they will either decide to go ahead with Generali Tower, or cancel it...

I personally like Generali whose original shape would definitely add something special to La Défense' skyline. Fingers crossed....

Reassuring news as invitations to tender have been issued today :

Furthermore Generali Tower is also mentioned today in this article:

Let's wait for the confirmation in June but Generali's future looks much brighter since today...

According to some recent sources (which we thought were reliable), GENERALI was supposed to be confirmed last saturday morning at La Défense as part as a meeting taking stock of the Plan de Renouveau de La Défense, but against all expectations, still no decision has been made from the Generali Group regarding the tower's confirmation or its cancellation. Indeed, they've postponed their decision for the second time...We might now have their final say in the next few weeks...

I love this building, but they gotta bag the spire! I doesn't fit in with the building.

No indeed, simple tower with some failed gimmicky features to compensate. They can skip this one for me

Newcastle Guy is right Bodgejob, don't pollute this thread with your childish posts, if you want to pick on Brisavoine, just use private messages.A bon entendeur...

Regarding GENERALI, I'm really disappointed as I liked it very much, its modern design at the top would have brought something extra to the skyline...It seems that the recent troubles which shook the group's hierarchy were lethal to the project. Perhaps another investor will take over the project, who knows, but I prefer not to have great expectations...

We need to add that the investor (Generali) is italian and unfortunately the economic situation is not going well Italy.
I am not at all surprised by this new.

People are commenting without even reading the newspaper article. The article says Generali is not going to build the tower for now, but the building permit is valid for 2 years and all legal challenges have been cleared, so they could either sell the building permit to an American investment fund (who could start construction right away, because the building permit is already there and all legal challenges are cleared; several American investment funds seem interested), or they could wait to find some coinvestors and start construction after they find those coinvestors.

Shame, one of the better Paris projects! Lets hope it's revived at some point.

Even if this isn't built something new will probably be proposed on the site in the next couple of years, possibly a superior project. La Defense has plenty on the go to keep people interested until then.
