Some say smaller sized scrapers can do equally well... at least that's what I heard.

Thanks a lot for the summary, very helpful. I have to say that I find the towers absolutely stunning and look forward to visit Paris when they are done.

Wow, nice job Jex... That's seriously awesome...

Looking down that beautiful road I wonder... Why wasn't Paris bombed more in the war?
So many great old buildings in Paris..

Off topic I know, but I'm curious..

Is that a serious question or are you just being really, really deadpan and baiting the French forummers?

We owe it to a german, governor of Paris who disobeyed Hilter's orders. The story is detailed in his wikipedia bio:

Paris WAS bombed during the war. You can see the thread with pictures here: http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=830546

It's just that the city is so huge that they couldn't bomb it out entirely.

It was bombed indeed but nothing like London or German cities. It was never so much a 'battleground' since the French quickly collaborated...

Back on topic, seriously awesome render up there!!!
The asymmetry between the North and South of LD is getting... Dare I say 'embarrassing'?

See that's exactly the kind of retarded comment you could have expected from such question AUTOTHRILL.

The decrees from the prefect of Greater Paris (Île-de-France) authorizing the construction of office space in the future Hermitage Towers.

Dear me, you, this post and that thread, really are scraping the bottom of the barrel....

You should be ashamed of yourself....

Isn't that supposed to be a thread about a tower to be built ? All these comments insulting a country by not knowing its history are very unpleasant to say the less (it is just not acceptable). Mr moderator should clean this out quickly and ban those individuals.

Back to the topic and these fantastic twin towers (that start to raise jealousy )

Well, I'm a French forumer, and you can't really accuse me of "pretending".....

If you click on my profile (like you already did recently ), you can see that the overwhelming majority of my posts are in the "stadiums & arenas" section of the forum, my other posts being mostly about classic architecture or urbanism/infrastructure/transportation (not to mention, of course, my endless advertising campaign about "la Grande Nation" .. like the Germans used to call it) !

At first glance it reminds me of the Foster proposal for twin towers on the WTC site New York....Looking more closely it is a different and nice design.......I have to admit I have not looked at this thread before, it was on my opening page......I will have to watch this more closely in future..........bonjour from Australia : )

According to some insider sources today, the demolition of the Damiers buildings to make way for the Hermitage Towers is set to start next June!! The two 337-meter high towers will then start construction immediately after the demolition of the Damiers. Things are speeding up! [img]http://i56.************/30cbq7d.gif[/img]
