Odd that there are so few renders where we see the towers go from wide at the bottom to thinner at the top. I understand the concept of the twisting floor plans btw. Probably has to do with the iconic view it will be seen from by most.

I'm thinking 2015 will be a good year to visit Paris.

Not that this year isn't...



These are great lookin' towers.

The ugly buildings that are going to be demolished to make way for the Hermitage Towers, and the true height of the Hermitage Towers.

I think so. Emin Iskenderov (the boss of Hermitage) always insists heavily that they didn't want to outdo the symbol of Paris (i.e. the Eiffel Tower), and so he says that's why the height is only 323 meters.

I think it was very clever on his part (he knows France very well), because a height officially taller than the Eiffel Tower would have created a controversy. And God knows the Parisians LOVE controversies.
