Patience & faith are the key in France...
I invite you to take a look at Phare's thread HERE.
I have been following Phare for a while, in the french section, I was hoping those recours would be canceled, or annulled (or whatever the word is)
Getting impatient, it's the same story here, takes for ever for something to happen, like a mega-hospital just started construction after 70 years of planning!

I'm getting impatient as well...the project has been delayed for quite some time now(over a year) because of those 'chieurs-nés'...the appeals concern the 'Permis de construire' & we now have to wait for the Tribunal de Cergy's decision...

I hope it won't take 70 years to launch Phare...I also hope that Hospital was worth the 'wait'...

It was worth the wait indeed! It's very original, modern and classy. Usually, hospitals are pretty cold & worrying, that one is the opposite, I really love it .

Sorry for the off topic bit. Back to Hermitage Plaza .

I use to think like that as well, but we have to remember that a Skyline is always changing, evolving. Who knows, maybe in the years to come, some mid rises will sprout in front of HP, across la Seine. La Défense will not remain frozen for the next 50 years, more projects will come and change things.

Should we change the status to "prep"?

I'd tend to say 'yes' as preliminary works have now started...hopefully we'll have demolitions late 2012. Fingers crossed.

People had the same reactions and criticisms to the NYC twin towers but they soon became landmarks... And Paris needs a new landmark desperately.

Well, it will be the tallest viewing platform in Paris (and in the EU for that matter). The Eiffel Tower's highest viewing platform is 273 meters (896 ft) above street level (that's the 3rd floor). The Tours Hermitage, on the other hand, will have their last accessible floors about 315 meters (1,030 ft) above street level.

Can someone explain why this thread says Demo?
And what would it mean? Surely not demolished it hasn't even started ground works.

Demolition of the buildings on site to make way for the Tours Hermitage.

Is there going to be an obsevation deck on the top floor of one of these towers? It would really be nice if (IMO) the best view of Paris is open to the public.

I hope they will add an antenna later to reach 400 meters.

No, no observation decks. The last floors will contain private penthouses.
