LYON | Projects & Construction

Much to everybody's surprise, Lyon, the second-largest city in France with 1.8 million people in its metro area, has just announced the largest French skyscraper project outside of Paris so far.

The 37-floor Incity Tower will be 200 meters (650 ft) high and will contain 40,000 sq. meters (430,000 st. ft) of office space. It will be built in the Part-Dieu business district and is scheduled to be completed by 2012. It will use green building technology, producing its own energy. Architects are Denis Valode and Albert Constantin.

Two views of the tower:

You can see more views of the tower and a very good interview of the Lyon mayor here: http://www.dailymotion.com/video/x45...lomb-tour_news
This man seems to have understood a thing or two about urbanism and skylines. Perhaps the mayor of Paris can take note.

There are other projects in Lyon at the moment, notably the Oxygène Tower, but I let the Lyon forumers tell you more about these. It would be great if a Lyon forumer also made a general presentation of Lyon for people outside of France who don't know Lyon very well (location in France, pics of the city, maps of areas with the new towers, etc).

I found the exact address of this Incity Tower. It will be at the corner of Cours Lafayette and Rue Garibaldi.
The tower will replace the current UAP Tower, a small and ugly tower. The notable thing is that this tower will
be built right in downtown Lyon and not in some peripheral business district like La Défense and Canary Wharf.



Look for the blue circle, that's where the Incity Tower will be located.


The 200m Incity Tower will stand near the 165m (541 ft) Crédit Lyonnais Tower which is Lyon's only skyscraper so far.



At night.

I was in Lyon last year, during March, and I thought it was a beautiful city. These developments look brilliant.

We have the same problem than UK in France, wich cities is the second largest.
Marseille is the most populated city proper, Lyon is the most populated urban and metropolitan area but Lille metro area if we include the Belgian part become more populated than Lyon metro.
If we see other criteria, like economy, actractivity... Lyon is the second city of France.

Unfortunely here, Lyon inhabitants are not enouth international, they have the most active section on the french forum, they get more easely information about their projects (Unlike us in Paris).

I find an interresting map.
Redevelopment area inside Lyon city proper, note that Lyon is in the same case that Paris, the real city size is bigger than the city proper, so many redevelopment miss here.



Renders of Confluance redevelopment area.

The La Duchere housing complex is being redeveloped and two of the blocks have been demolished so far.

An update of the high-rise projects in Lyon. The French forumer Geysers38 has created this render showing all the towers already built, u/c, and proposed. All these towers are located only 1.25 km (0.8 miles) from the Medieval heart of Lyon as the crow flies (i.e. 10 blocks and 1 river from the Medieval part of Lyon). I have indicated the names of the towers, their status, and their heights in red. As you can see, the skyline of Lyon is going to change significantly!



The original document without my red comments:

In this view you can see how close the skyscraper district is from the Medieval heart of Lyon (the Medieval district of Lyon extends on both sides of the river visible here, which is not the same river that I talked about in my previous post; the buildings in the foreground are on the western end of the Medieval district, whereas the skyscraper district is 1.25 km from the eastern end of the Medieval district, separated from the Medieveal district of Lyon by another river which is further from the photographer but hidden by buildings in this picture).

Only tour Part-Dieu is visible in this view (I think tour Oxygène wasn't built yet back when this picture was taken). Before the end of the decade, there should one 200m and one 220m high tower just to the left of tour Part-Dieu in this view.
