It would be really nice to see those brutalist buildings be demolished, the skyline would seem so much open and modern. Guys do you know how serious are these tower proposals?

The apartments in these buildings are very pleasant to live in. If the building is well maintained, there is no reason to demolish it.
Maybe in some years, it could be among the highest standing of Lyon to live here due to the transformation of La Part-Dieu.

However, we might have some regrets that those flats had not been built in some newest private-use ssc , the municipality missed its shot that time to mix the fields of the Part-Dieu district !!!!

This is a long therm plan including so much more thant just "rising skyscrapers to have a european class skyline" :

This project includes (most likely to be built) :

2013-2017 :

-Streets revival with the developpement of activities on the ground-floor of the new buildings

-Residential project phase I

-Video games museum prefiguration

-Construction of at least 5 towers :

2020 - 2025 :

-Part Dieu railway station reshaping (possible underground project)

-Tram train link between Part Dieu and west Lyon (possible pre metro approach)


Some others projects that i didn't mentionned because of doubts :

-some 70's office buildings could be enhanced



-2 mysterious projects : Icade and Gecina towers 100m+ and 130m+



For the moment, we can expect this skyline by 2017 :



(sorry for my english!!!)

Lyon puts focus on finding a star role



The French economy has taken a battering but Lyon, the southeastern city where the Saône and Rhône rivers meet, has been spared much of the worst of the fallout from three years of the eurozone crisis. Unemployment in France’s second-biggest economic region, at 8.4 per cent, is below the national level, which is rising above one in 10 after a spate of industrial redundancies.

The high-speed TGV trains that dash back and forth every 30 minutes to Paris remain full of busy business people, typically tapping away the two-hour journey on their laptops.

Aderly, Lyon’s inward investment agency, posted a record year in 2012, reporting the arrival of 71 companies in the area, promising 1,800 jobs over the next three years, a shade more even than in 2007, when the previous record was set before the financial crisis hit in 2008 and a sharp recession followed in 2009. The effects of a year of zero growth have been felt: Lyon’s commercial property sector saw a big fall in new rentals in 2012. But four urban development projects around the city are pressing ahead as Lyon looks to raise its standing in the rankings of European economic centres.

“If Europe was to collapse tomorrow of course it would be difficult for everyone but today we are managing to maintain our course,” says Gérard Collomb, the city’s socialist mayor in an interview with the Financial Times.

“Our big urban projects are rising from the ground and they are allowing us to sustain the current of business in Lyon during this difficult period.” Franck Viart, who covers the local economy for the regional daily newspaper Le Progres, adds: “Of course Lyon has felt the effects of the crisis.

Unemployment has risen and there is a lack of visibility about this year. But there have not been the big lay-offs like elsewhere, such as in the auto industry. Those traditional industries are not so present in Lyon any more.” Lyon has a history as a commercial and industrial base, positioned not only at a natural crossroads between the north of the country and the Mediterranean coast, but also close to Switzerland and Italy, with Germany not far to the north east. With St Etienne just to its south west, Grenoble to the south east and Geneva to the north east, Lyon is at the centre of a busy commercial hub.

Its traditional industries were based on textiles, water, chemicals and pharmaceuticals – and a hinterland rich in food and wine, with the vineyards of Beaujolais to the north and the Cotes du Rhône to the south. The city prides itself on being the gastronomic capital of France, no mean claim in a country so proud of its food and drink. “Lyon has always been helped by its geographic position and that continues to be a factor in its development,” says Jacques de Chilly, head of Aderly. The city’s ambition is to consolidate its position as the country’s second economic power after Paris and establish itself as a European centre to rival the continent’s other big regional cities.

“When I look at cities like Barcelona, Milan and Munich, we are still the little one at the back of the class,” says Mr Collomb. “But we’ve entered the class and that is not bad.”

The city, which counts a population in the greater Lyon area of 1.2m, has sought to construct a future emphasising new technology and in areas in which it can build on its industrial heritage and its higher education base, which has an tradition in medicine. These include the environment and energy, life sciences and chemicals, transport and communications and the movie and gaming industry. Mr Collomb emphasises innovation and the use of Lyon’s regional strength to consolidate its attraction to business during a period of economic stringency. “To a certain extent Lyon has benefited from restructuring,” he says, pointing to Sanofi, the pharmaceutical group, which is modifying its research operations in France, increasing its traditional presence in Lyon while reducing it elsewhere, notably in Toulouse.

“We’re trying to make sure that Lyon stays in the game. Our challenge in the crisis is to be the most attractive,” adds the mayor.

A particular struggle is to compete with the magnetic attraction of Paris, by far the biggest business centre in France. As one official with a development agency put it, Lyon and the surrounding Rhône-Alpes region have to battle constantly against the “Jacobin hegemony of Paris”.

One way to counter the characteristic centralisation of France is to give Lyon greater critical mass. The city is due within the next two years to become the first city in the country with the status of European Metropolis, merging with the surrounding Rhone département in a bid to increase its financial firepower and streamline the layers of local administration and bureaucracy for which France is notorious.

The city is pressing ahead with its urban renewal projects, based around the revival of the large Confluence area, where the city’s two rivers join, Part-Dieu, a city-centre business district – already second in size in France to La Défense in Paris.

Officials place emphasis in these projects on building an “intelligent city”, with environmentally-friendly buildings and infrastructure, integrated public transport and the application of the latest information and communication technologies.

Lyon is known for transport innovation. It was the first city to be connected to Paris by TGV in 1981 and the first in France to deploy an extensive network of public hire bicycles, before Paris won international acclaim for its Vélib. The city benefits from a four-line metro but still has a reputation for patience-sapping traffic jams on its roads.

Perhaps its biggest problem as a business centre is the perceived inadequacy of its airport, ranked 47th in Europe. Local business leaders complain at the lack of international links, despite a tie-up with Emirates, the Gulf airline. “It remains a big handicap,” admits Mr de Chilly. “We lose projects to Frankfurt and Paris because of the lack of international connections.”

The other handicap that all cities and regions in France suffer from in bidding to attract foreign investment is France’s reputation for high taxes, reinforced by President François Hollande’s election pledge, yet to be implemented, of a 75 per cent marginal rate on incomes above €1m.

Mr Collomb says he warned the government against the adverse effects. “It is not so much the companies [that worry], it is the individual people. It is the senior managers who say ‘oh la la’. With such levels of tax a senior manager of a big international company may look to go somewhere else for his next posting.”

The mayor insists the national government is turning away from new taxes. It has embarked on a “Say ‘Oui’ to France” international campaign to secure more foreign investment. Lyon is anxious to win a fair share of the spoils.

Two new towers announced today for downtown Lyon. Stupidly named "Two Lyon". The tallest tower is 170 m (560 ft) high. They plan to complete them by 2018.
