Tour Odeon will be on the other side of Monaco.
On the second page you can see some pictures which shows the location of this building.

Saw this core too when I visited Monte Carlo and have no clue what this project could be.

monaco should get more tall buildings. it seems like there is still enough room for more. just demolish some of those small houses at the back.

A huge crane has arrived in pieces on site last week. The tower is now going to emerge from the ground.

PS: According to Monaco Matin, the first floor above the ground will appear in May, and then they will add one floor every week. By the summer the tower will already be 40 meters high. The crane will be 200 meters tall.

The villas behind it are... in a foreign country (France). So they can't do anything against the project. The beauty of international borders.

Some pictures of the construction taken by the Niçois forumer Monmix on April 24, 2011 (sorry, no more recent pics, except the arrival of the crane in my post above which is a picture from last week):

Those houses are in France they can't destroy them, Monaco is only 2km².

I'm definitely looking forward to see this one build. Everything is an improvement compared to those ugly and bland highrises that currently make up the bulk of Monaco's skyline.

Its nickname is the Odious Tower. It's going to shadow all of Beausoleil...now known as Nonsoleil.

I was origionally against this building due to it appearing quite bulkiny in those first couple of pictures but now I am totally for it. It seems to fit well with its surroundings height wise and acually in comparison with its nieghbours it acually seems almost slender. Nice one

Perhaps someone should come and demolish your house, eh.

Most "small" houses of Monaco are historical buildings and shouldn't be sacrificed for all this modernist concrete stuff.

The identity and remaining charm of Monaco comes from its historical buildings, like the casino. All those concrete boxes are horrible for the place. The density created by those might be insane, but they sacrificed a lot of heritage for this shit.
