I quite like the leaning facade, also have realised how "messy" is the top and it makes this design even cooler

It weren't a reconstrution but a renovation of security element.

Thank you for clarifying it.

La Défense knew a "slowdown" in the early to mid 90's due to an unfavourable economical context, but this is relative since 3 towers were built between 1992 and 1995.

Then, since 1998 it's 8 towers that have been delivered plus 2 others currently under construction plus many smaller offices built during this period...

So I don't really see from when it should be waking up

Some news and some new renderings. The construction of Air² Tower has been confirmed in the French press. Apparently The Carlyle Group is currently negotiating the acquisition of this tower from Bouygues Immobilier. The tower will be completed and delivered in 2012. Someone should change the tag on top of the thread to "App".

If Generali is 318 meters on its left, then Air2 is more like 290/300-ish on the photographed model...

It's true that constructions of new towers have never really stopped. However, the first tower around 180/190 meters to be built was Areva in 1974 and the new towers which have been built since then have often matched that limit, but never exceeded it. My own interpretation of La Défense "wake up" is that towers of another height category are getting planned.

Damn', there's a 240-meter tower currently under construction at the forefront of LD (CB31 aka AXA), and it will be only the first one of a long serie. Let's celebrate this!

yeah, let's celebrate

there are a lot of good and daring designs in Paris. Even though a lot of people will need some time to become accustomed to some of the new towers. In a few years -- or more likely decades -- they will be an extencial part of Paris as the Eiffel tower is today

The Tour Air2 proposal screws up the La Defense 2 Supercomplex and the boxy buildings that are part of it, such as EDF-GDF. I think it needs to be cancelled.

Really? I personally like it, more than Generali and Phare. It is a very nice looking tower, and I think it will fit great in La Defense. I would really like something like this in Canary Wharf.
