Last render ever ...

Sadly , this project seems to be cancelled due to its loose in the Signal Tower Contest .

Maybe it would rise again in the second part of the La Defense revival plan . (So not before 2015.)

The PB 22 Complex look like residential towers even though they are used for offices. They are on the site of two 12-story buildings that are connected to each other by 7-story buildings. There are three others in the complex, and we may have to eventually demolish them for a similar-looking project. And they are connected to the Michelet Tower and because of the connection, the 34-story tower is eventually demolished for a supertall skyscraper. I don't want to make the La Defense 2015 plan feel less significant, but I wouldn't want to demolish any of those six buildings, not even a 235-metre and 135-metre office complex that looks like it should be built in a city other than Paris. So please, don't build the proposed towers.

I hope the project is cancelled and will never rise again.

La Defense is full of "artistic", "risky" buildings that i dont think paid off. This one definitely looks more Parisian than other buildings there that look like Soviet Bratislava. Hope it turns out well.

Could you give us a link? This was probably one of the few new Paris projects that I liked and now it's cancelled?

"PB22" is dead but "Crossharbour Tower" is to be born..

Just like you guys,I loved this PB22 tower whose shape was very feminine and sexy.

Unfortunately,it was cancelled earlier this year...

I was and am still really gutted,but there's nothing we can do about it.

To "comfort" you folks, there's a similar tower very likely to come true (approved this year) in London called "Crossharbour Tower":

OR

Bye!
