^ This is loud in the local business news this weekend.
They're advertising some kind of exciting "college-at-work atmosphere"coming up there, so to steak.
Lots of hungry youngsters expected in there. It makes you want to have good ideas and start a business! lol.

This in the 13th arrondissement, officially the hot spot in town at the moment also goes to people hating brutal stained concrete.
Really, it can be most contemporary, apparently friendly and stylish.

^ I hope towers planned to sit nearby wealthy Neuilly, namely the Link and Hermitage will show off shinier materials than those we've had so far for the 2010s.

Here's a closeup of the Link (#916 above). It's a large image, so I'd rather just post a link to it.

This could be some nice change from the more generic and dated international style façades we had to the latest towers.

Frankly, I still feel a bit frustrated and angry at the looks of Carpe Diem in particular, starving for sleeker materials.

Carpe Diem is indeed a bit of a snoozer in terms of materials. Actually I think it's a size of the window frames that make it look a bit outdated not to say 1980s-esque....

But look at Majunga or D2, they look amazing. I was watching an interview about Hermitage plaza and they were actually kind of pleased by the fact that it took so long to finally get permission to break ground because through al these years, they managed to get the necessary technology to make better glass and better techniques of construction which they say is going to enable them to build those two towers two years earlier than expected !!

Let's look at the bright side and not "french it up" by complaining about everything !

That's right. Let's turn our attitude into something positive, confident and welcoming at last, for an actual change. It would be some sweet relief and satisfaction.

Besides, I agree that D2 and Majunga look pretty decent.

Otherwise, Carpe Diem's materials came from China. So, I'm absolutely not against buying stuff from China when it's a better deal, but they could at least bring the best of theirs to us, huh. Cause they were unfair to the Carpe Diem façade in my humble opinion. They seem to do much better things in their own country.
