Demo to start soon

According to Mynight (french administrator on Paris Skyscraper), the demolition order of the VERITAS building (pic below)has just been put in to the company liable for the job (PRODEMO). Therefore, its demolition will start mid june & is due to take 6 months.


Veritas building taken by Spoudzzi on 16 may

Things are moving lately, indeed after announcing Veritas's demolition 10 days ago (see above), D2's bill of sale was signed today.

http://www.ladefense-seine-arche.fr/...a-tour-d2.html

After Carpe Diem & Majunga, D2 will be the next tower to see the light in La Défense .

PS: we're still uncertain about its final height, it will be either 171, 175 or 180m.

In the next few weeks, our gorgeous D2 tower will also be on the way .

Thanks for the update. Doesn't look like they're bothering with the 'white sheet of death' for this one, during demolition. I gather that this one is being built speculatively (no pre-let), right?

Superb. Nice to see this one confirmed. It will add a new type of towers to La Defense. Hopefully together with the completion of Phare, it will encourage the non-boxy diversity

You're welcome guys .

Indeed Talisker, D2 will be built "en blanc" (no pre-let). Owing to its amazing & unusual shape, I doubt that this one will have difficulty finding tenants though...

'White sheets of death' do not seem to be a french specificity I noticed...(same for the France Telecom building which was destroyed to allow Carpe Diem's construction). We'll see if they use one for Aurore/Iris/Berkeley (buildings to be destroyed for respectively AIR2 Tower/GENERALI Tower/AVA Tower).

I agree with you Hseugut. Air2 will also bring something new to the skyline, as well as Phare (of course) & Generali (if the latter is confirmed...but it's likely to be).

Aurore's destruction is due next september btw.

Nice. Although this is not a new concept (Londons Swiss Re is very similar), it still looks good.

The demolition progresses very quickly, besides the workers think that it could be completed by august 12th. Then they will need to evacuate all the rubble & clear the site for D2's groundworks to start late september .

Today:

An interesting video (not very recent though *), showing how D2 will blend well with its surrondings:
