Would be appropriate to change D2's data...to be accurate, D2 is approved & will be 171m tall.







Hope somebody changes its height & status then...

The 'curage' works are ongoing, they should be drawing to a close pretty soon now. The demolition of this building named VERITAS will then follow to make room for D2's construction .

the cladding makes that building look beautiful. It's a shame that it has to go.

True but an arguably bigger loss is to happen in La Défense with the destruction of Aurore Tower, the brownish building on the first two pictures of Jex's post. It will be replaced by Air2 tower.

Anyway nice to see that the lovely D2 tower will start rising in a matter of months.

The dingy looking, tall, brown one to the immediate right of Veritas? Good riddance!

I agree with [email protected] though. As much as I like the future AIR2 tower, I think they could have chosen another old building to be taken down as Aurore (that's its name) whose construction started in 1971, is very distinctive with its white stripes and brass clad, it's pretty lovely actually and I think it's sad to destroy it, there's so much worse in LD than Aurore...but it's condemned anyway, so be it.

Tour Aurore, 110m

Back on topic...

The EPAD takes stock of the 'Plan de renouveau de La Défense'

22 september 2010


Like in march 2010, the organization running La Défense, the Epad (Etablissement Pour l'Aménagement de La Défense) takes stock on the 'plan de renouveau de La Défense' launched in 2006 by Nicolas Sarkozy who was at the time the Epad president.

Quote:
[...]Des engagements juridiques fermes ont été signés ces derniers mois qui dépassent, quand on additionne les m² nouveaux, ce chiffre. Il s’agit des projets Carpe Diem, développés par Aviva et Predica dont les travaux ont commencé le 1er mars ; du projet D² développé par Sogecap et dont les travaux vont commencer à l’automne 2010[...]
Tu sum up, work for D2 is to start shortly (autumn 2010), which in this case, will start with the demolition of Veritas.

http://www.defense-92.com/lesnewsdeladefense.html

PS: BTW, many thanks to whoever changed D2's status & height...

D2 looks very spectacular, it will be great if this gets built.

Hola Barca! La unica cosa que cambio sobre la torre Gan es su nombre (ahora se llama torre CB21).lol
-----------------------------------

IrishMan, there's no 'if this gets built' as everything is secured since february 2010, as I said in my previous post, work's gonna start very shortly now. By late 2010, we'll be having 2 towers on track with Carpe Diem & D2, and from 2011, many more with Majunga, Generali, Ava, Air2, Hermitage Plaza...

I don't if you guys have seen D2's video before, so here it is just in case:

I can't tell you precisely Ramses, but as you can see in the above picture, D2 will be very close to Air2, actually way too close imo...I think that's a pity to see such a beautiful tower hidden behind the lovely but tall Air2 tower. Furthermore from the famous axis (Arc de Triomphe...) the major part of D2 will also be hidden by Hermitage Plaza. D2 should have been built on the left hand side of the Grande Arche...


D2 on its own...


La Défense by 2015/16, D2 hidden behind both FIrst & Hermitage Plaza (first tower)
