wow this towers are going to have one of the best views worldwide! not so sure about the design, though.. A skybridge could have made quite a difference. how big are the chances of this getting built?

@ The other Dude
According to the director of Hermitage, the financing is found and construction could begin in the end of 2010, but with crisis, I think that it is necessary to be wary of this date.

I disagree. You seem to consider that somehow time will stop in 2014 for ever. It's not as if La Défense will be frozen in 2014 (that annoying French mentality, incapable of thinking the city in a dynamic forward-looking way ).

The skyline of La Défense will be temporarily skewed towards the right as seen from the Arc de Triomphe, but then new skyscrapers will be built to the left of the axis over time to compensate. In fact it's excellent news, because it will force future city planners to authorize supertall skyscrapers to the left of the axis to compensate for these twin towers. La Défense is anything but a district frozen in time!

For once I agree totally with you.

Like the tower/s. I'd hate to be in that pool and spa room and slip on the tile anywhere near one of those glass walls though.

What sort of glass do you think that they are going to use? Bohemian glass?

The previous design seemed to be more innovative.
This one looks a bit boring 'cause of the two identical towers,but the geometry of the buildings is good.

more on the paris hermitage towers here...

quite nice i think, particularly like the geometry they've used in them. foster needs a trick other than a white diagrid over blue glass though.

Something few people have noticed so far is the fact that although the Hermitage Towers will be 1 meter short of the Eiffel Tower (in order to avoid public controversies I suppose), their last floors will be much higher than the last floor of the Eiffel Tower. The Eiffel Tower is 1 meter taller than the Hermitage Towers overall only thanks to its antenna. Its last floor (the uppermost part of the Eiffel Tower you can reach as a tourist) is "only" 276 m/906 ft above street level, whereas the last floors of the Hermitage Towers should be about 320 m / 1,050 ft above street level judging from the renderings.

In fact the Hermitage Towers will have the tallest habitable floors in the European Union by far. Their last floors are about as high as the last floors of the Empire State Building. Below I made a graph showing the Hermitage Towers and other famous skyscrapers in Europe and the rest of the world for comparisons. If they end up being built, the Hermitage Towers will truly look like two enormous skyscrapers on the banks of the Seine, more voluminous and towering than the Eiffel Tower. I think at this point it's still hard for many people to realize how massive they will look. The graph below gives an idea of what to expect.
