^^ You can see on the left the new AXA tower (CB31) after renovation. It's for sure much bigger than the 3 180m+ towers which are for now the highest in LD


View from Puteaux (South of La Défense):

The 3 biggest towers (250 to 400 meters) will be build around the Grande Arch!


Last view, toward Paris city center:

Whoa, cool!!!!

I wonder if the renovated AXA tower will look like the rendering in those "visions". It would be the first skyscraper with a spire in La Défense.

When is the renovation of AXA going to begin or are there no official plans yet?

Fabb Mar 24, 2006 3:28 PM

I'm not sure.
But I guess that the final plans are not finalized yet.

If the renovated tower is taller, it'll probably need approval. That' won't be easy because AXA is located at a very prominent site.

Very nice. Good for Paris. ;)

Those renderings show relatively fat new skyscrapers. I'm a little surprised and I can't wait to see the first proposals.

Still a mystery...it's on the J.Nouvel website however.

Another prosal:

Air Tower, 140 m (odd name for a LD tower)

Fabb Apr 3, 2006 4:15 PM

Both are nice.
Of course, Nouvel's design is fantastic. Hopefully, it's not an older, failed project.

What is the story on the Méridien hotel ?

Grumpy Jun 13, 2006 12:33 PM

Sad to see no one is updating this thread....

Fabb Jun 13, 2006 8:48 PM

Well, the projects should have been released this month.
I'd be surprised if they came on time though.
