Hope it helps dude!

Back on topic now .
Unbelievable it was a slum...
anyways, this part of Paris is growing up too much, i've seen a little bit of it and I found other projects as the Heritage Towers!
I'd say it is a New Paris!

It's not elegant like Paris. It would fit better in a London or a Tokyo

Tour Majunga is no longer a proposed Highrise, but is well under construction, as I can see the evolution from my appartment. Plz moderation, check the status out.
