Another 'en blanc' speculative construction or are they waiting for a pre-let on this one? I'd imagine demolition of the old building should go ahead soon at least.

To answer your question Talisker, AIR2 is like D2, an "en blanc" construction.

The demolition of the current tower (Aurore, 110m) should start very soon indeed. I guess they're waiting for VERITAS(D2's future site) to be entirely demolished before starting with Aurore's which is next to it. The VERITAS's demolition is hoped to be completed by august 12th (& I personally think that it will-----> cf D2's thread).

AURORE Tower to be demolished early 2012


Aurore Tower (110m)

The deconstruction works of the Aurore Tower to make room for AIR2 Tower, will begin early 2012, Philippe Chaix said, explaining that the demolition works of Aurore will take around 16 months. The tower will be deconstructed floor by floor. AIR2's works could therefore begin in 2013. The planning permission of AIR2 Tower currently faces 2 claims, one from SOGECAP (the group building D2 Tower) & the other one from Manhattan Tower.

That's a good thing Talisker. Air² will definitely be the next tower U/C in La Défense (probably early 2013). Not sure what you mean by speculative construction though...building lots of new buildings without getting tenants in the first place?

ThatOneGuy/hseugut, I do agree with you, I'm looking forward to Air² but I wish it had been built somewhere else, Aurore doesn't deserve to go as it's a pretty cool tower.

Yeah, 'en blanc' as you call it. Is that still the plan?

Sorry Talisker, I still don't know whether AIR² is a 'en blanc' operation or not. When I know the answer, I'll mention it on here.

------------------------------------------------------------------------------

According to our reliable comrade Krapulax, the call for tender regarding the preliminary works of AIR² has just been issued.

The 'Bonne Journée' sandwich shop closes down to make room for AIR² Tower


Photo by Spoudzzi


Quote:
La sandwicherie Bonne Journée située au patio des Reflets, face au Franprix a baissé pour la dernière fois son rideau le mardi 22 mai 2012. Cette fermeture s’accompagnera de celle du bistro, restaurant "le Tourbillon" dans les prochaines semaines afin de laisser place à la tour Aire 2. Suivra ces deux fermetures, le déplacement des locaux de la CGT et de la CFDT à quelques mètres plus loin, dans le RDC de l’immeuble Neuilly-Défense.

Le début de la déconstruction de la tour Aurore et de l’immeuble BNP Paribas est programmé avant la fin de cette année 2012. Il faudra alors compter au minimum un an de déconstruction de la tour Aurore, qui sera démontée étage par étage, de la même manière que l’a été la tour UAP à Lyon. La tour Aire 2, conçue par le cabinet Arquitectonica et construite par Bouygues Construction développera 82 000 m² répartis sur 41 étages pour une hauteur culminant à 202 mètres. Le permis de construire, qui a fait l'objet d'une enquête publique en avril-mai 2011, avait été délivré par la mairie de Courbevoie le 20 juillet 2011. Lors du dernier conseil du 13 avril dernier, l’EPADESA a approuvé les conditions de la promesse de vente de la tour Aire 2 avec l’investisseur du projet, Carlyle.

The Pub 'Le Tourbillon' (visible in the photo's background), will also be closing down in the next few weeks.

The deconstruction of both Aurore Tower & the BNP Paribas building will start before the end of this year (probably in september).

The deconstruction process to be used for Aurore tower will be the same one than for the UAP Tower in Lyon HERE, which is great news. This process, quick & efficient, was really successful in Lyon.

The Aurore deconstruction - floor by floor- will take 12 months.

They are so ugly, they must be destroyed to build nicer skyscrapers.
