I`m not sure if I like this renovation project.Tour Gan looks good the way it is now,after the renovation it will look like a bigger Tour Elf.

Every city should have a mix of architecture from all epoches, so that you can feel the history of the place. It's a sad thing that so many historical buildings are sacrificed for a flashy modern look (which changes every decade)

It does keep the theme of the original design intact. A whole lot better than the crap they are doing to New York buildings. Verizon is now a flat green box and Astor Plaza is supposedly going to be a blue one.

If the Tour Gan is renovated, it should have about 60 floors.

The tower has actually strong chances to be renovated. The group "Foncière des Régions" has already acquired the tower with as project to restructurate it in order to sell it back. I'm strongly skeptic the group would have already bought the tower if there had no guarantee the EPAD would allow its construction.

However, Foncières des Régions announced a very rushed calendar with construction starting as early as in 5 months. There are very few chances such a tight calendar could be respected.

It will be a very nice and logic redevelopment. BTW, that LD skyline render is just amazing..

Fortunately, new glassy facade. IMO the actual one looks so messy.

The facade does not look messy. Would the reconstruction screw up the building's greek cross-shaped groundprint?

I only hope they won't change the cladding.

it's the same problem all over europe, architecture of 50's, 60's and 70's is not old enough to be reckoned as architectural heritage and is being demolished to make place for sometimes a lot weaker, but modern buildings. the same problem we have in warsaw.
