Cool diagram, except 1WTC is now the tallest in NYC

But either way, another two supertalls for Europe is a good thing for sure

Good to see the demolition is underway. That means this tower's future is pretty much fixed. Isn't it?

It's only the preliminary works Charlotte (asbestos removal), we'll jump for joy when the bulldozers arrive...

A run down, tacky, ugly apartment building replaced by those amazing twin towers! Paris is finally modernizing architecturally!

Haha! I'll be looking forward to that moment. Then, I can actually use the little bit of french I know and shout "Au revoir!"

Is the big, unregular tower behind HP Tour Phare? It looks huge! Something like 400m.

Funny, if these were going up in London, you would have said they were ugly unimaginative boring boxes or something... now I understand why.

It's not to scale, Tour Phare will be 297m IIRC, if it gets built.

I love the design of Hermitage Plaza, but the location could be better, it would have made a nice centrepiece to the skyline had it been in the middle of La Defense for example.

Take it easy dude, as I said previously they're currently removing the asbestos of the INFRA building. This operation is to take 4 months. The demolition of the building itself won't start as long as an appeal against the demolition permit isn't cleared. The Court's decision is to be known this year.The demolition visible in some pics is that of flowers stands only...

Like you, I'd love those Damiers (INFRA/BRETAGNE/ANJOU) to be taken down so bad but the procedure in France takes ages...the nimbies/associations have already promised to appeal once more, so, we'd better be patient, those awesome twin towers really are far from rising from the ground...

@ krkseg1ops, this is just a photomontage mate, the buildings' scale isn't respected here, HP will be 320m tall, PHARE 297m tall.
