The only problem of these projects is the lack of heigh, unfortunely too common in France.

Exactly!
Every one can see that in France, 95% of urban projects are low rises (under 100m).
For example, for future projects in France (without paris), Toulouse, just one tower for the moment in Aérospace Campus in project, and maybe more towers in the future business center near TGV rail station (studies now).
It's the same for projects in Lyon with 1 tower in construction and 1 to 3 in project, Lille (1 in project), Marseille with 1 in construction and 4 in project.
After that, nothing in the other french cities.

Une question pour les Toulousains du forum : je suis allé hier à Toulouse, cela faisait bien 2 ans que je n'y avais pas mis les pieds, et j'ai vu les fameux aménagements de la rue Alsace-Lorraine. Quelle horreur ! Ils ont complètement défiguré cette pauvre rue. Ma mère qui était avec moi et qui n'était pas allé à Toulouse depuis longtemps aussi n'en revenait pas de ce qu'ils ont osé faire à notre beau centre-ville de Toulouse. D'ailleurs je crois que l'avis est partagé par beaucoup de monde, parce que j'ai saisi au vol dans la rue des conversations très très négatives de personnes sur les aménagements de la rue Alsace-Lorraine ("la plus belleu rue de TouLOUseu, kèsse ki zen on fé-eu!", avec l'akeussent, ).

Alors ma question c'est : savez-vous si ces aménagements sont provisoires ou si c'est du définitif ? Je ne peux pas imaginer que ce soit du définitif tellement c'est mal fait. En particulier, est-ce que vous savez pourquoi il y a ces rayures (lignes) sur le revêtement bizarre qu'ils ont mis au sol ? Cela nous a beaucoup intrigué. On dirait un parking de supermarché goudronné à la va-vite. Et dire qu'il s'agit de la rue principale de Toulouse. Quelle image pour les touristes de passage !

Enfin heureusement que la place du Capitole est toujours aussi belle ! Et toutes les petites rues médiévales qui rendent Toulouse incomparable à mon avis. Haussmann et les deux guerres mondiales ne sont pas passés par là, Toulouse a beaucoup de chance.

This is fortunately a temporarily adjusting.
The mayor has launched a retraining from the city centre, which should bring about a new development heavier of the street Alsace-Lorainne.
Currently it is a test of a rapid development (only 2 months) with simple materials (and ugly depending on the tast).
In 2 years we should again see work on the street.

Retraining? Development heavier? Qu'est-ce que tu veux dire exactement? Tu peux répondre en français.

Requalification urbaine du centre-ville avec une restructuration "lourde" de la rue alsace.
L'aménagement actuel est un truc fait à la va-vite pour aggrandir la rue en vue de l'arrivée des piétons avec la ligne B de métro.

You can find in this old central map, the limits of international urban concourse. The objective is to requalify old streets, boulevards' circulations between pedestrian, cycles, bus and cars in a beautiful olde urban landscape.

Alsace-Lorraine's street now is with a temporary installation (for the moment municipalité try to see if cycles, people and cars can share the space in harmony). So I suppose they didn't want to spend expensive to change 2 years after.
Its appearance will be different with the results of global concourse. All long and spacious central streets (Alsace-Lorraine, Metz, Esquirol, Boulevards, Jean-Jaurès, bayard...) will have the same face. For example, an idea is to requalify Jean-Jaurès Allées in sort of Ramblas.

Saint-Exupéry wrote Night Flight, recalling the experience of flying alone in the endless starry sky, and above all the world famous Little Prince.
Wonderful news for the city of Toulouse! It's always nice to see other cities getting attention. Looking forward for other projects to follow.

Incidentally, Aéropostale is the name of a clothing store I used to work for here in the US. You'd be surprised how many people ask what the word means.
