Vous parlez bien français messieurs, félicitations .

Here's a nice video found on Eiffage's website:

http://www.eiffageconstruction.com/F...a-defense.html

The excavation work, started in January & due to last 7 months, is very complex owing to the presence of quarry gaps in the subsoil which need to be filled in, & geotechnical irregularities to be dealt with. The building work will start in september 2011 and the tower will be delivered in December 2013.

During the night, they took off many construction machines (cranes, puncher, mixers...) with a state autorisation (from 9pm to 6am in a very crowded area).
They are moving on to the next step...

The excavations look like hard work, compared to London. Is that bedrock they're digging into? (sorry, construction isn't my speciality)

Indeed Talisker, they've been having a rough time owing to the presence of massive hard rocks (visible in some of the above pics), that's a bit of a nightmare to shatter them...but otherwise, works are coming along nicely, lots of action everyday, the excavation work should be done within a couple of weeks (imo), a big crane is being assembled & will be completed by saturday. I'll try to update this thread as often as I can. BFN

Progress the last 3 months:

MAY 23rd


JUNE 20th

Thanx for the update Jex

Unfortunately I missed this site at my last visit. Anyway, looks like things just seriously getting started right now.
I'm curious what Defense's second highest is gonna add to the area. Personally I think the design is interesting, fitting well in La Defense and 194 m is very welcome here.

I just recently visited La Defence for the first time , and I was wondering is it normal for French office workers to stick cartoon characters or game characters in the windows of their offices , really messes with some of the buildings flow.

Well, I did see it at at other spots in Paris too, like on the Tour Montparnasse. I cannot tell if I find it's funny or disturbing. A littlebit of both, I guess.

It reminds me of a documentary I saw about street art (Banksy). There's a part about a French street artist (Invader) who was making these kind of images. Maybe he's been an inspiration to the French office workers???

That's a pity mate...but next time, just know that the site is easily accessible, it's located behind the ARIANE Tower (its name is written on the facade, you can't miss it).

I personally love Majunga, its design is very modern & nice looking, it's gonna add something special to the skyline for sure!

Regarding those stickers on the offices' windows, it was actually part of a contest called 'POST IT WAR'.

Looks a bit of a weird design.

Thanx for the info!
Next time I will definately pay a visit to this one. Hopefully by that time I won't be needing your directions, cause I expect it to be clearly visible in the skyline by then
