PARIS | La Défense update thread

Check out this nice video presentation of the Parisian CBD

http://www.ladefense.fr/goodies.php

Press map

http://www.ladefense.fr/presse_dossier_presse.php

Optical renderings:

View from Paris - Arc de Triomphe:




View from Paris - Bois de Boulogne:




View from Levallois (north-west of Paris):



^^ 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:






Very promising isn't it

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?

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.

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)

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

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